New Zealand based Jucy Rentals— lauded in Condé Nast Traveler, the L.A Times, and the New York Times — proves the adage that great things come in small packages. Exported to the U.S. in 2012, their cheery green minivans hit the road in disguise, appearing as humble, standard passenger vehicles with some storage on top and great paint jobs. Once stopped, however, they transform into a cozy campervan that sleeps up to four. Pop the container atop the van and pull down the ladder to enter the Penthouse, a roomy pod-tent. Inside the main cabin, the passenger seats morph into a comfortable bed, or make way for the screw-in table stored beneath them. A refrigerator, gas burner, and sink fill the trunk, a TV and DVD player folds down from the ceiling, and blinds allow for privacy as passengers weep for joy.
