According to Céline Fauvarque from Origin Campervans, the idea came from Australia and New Zealand were the concept is enjoying great success with tourists wanting to get the most of the stunning nature and life style of these countries… “After having lived 'Down Under' for a few years, we wanted to offer this concept in France to allow visitors to discover Europe outside the beaten tracks without breaking the budget.”

Indeed, this "mini camper van" allows you to go where you feel like, hit the road and let you drive by the beauty of the sceneries.
