The Laika Ecovip 645 van is a 6.36 m long equipped van with rear seating. A rare presence in the European motorhome market. On stage, this living room can be converted into a transverse double bed or two single beds. To discover with the photos signed by Thomas Jamet, for Vanlife Magazine and Le Monde du Camping-Car.

The advantage of the rear lounge is obvious: you are closer than around a front dinette and stand there face to face. All four people have equal access to the table. And it’s a place sheltered from the elements (you might think that’s the reason for the success of rear lounge vans in the British Isles).
