The "ECO-ROAMER"

Ok so before I start getting flames over the name or anything like that I want to first say it is not mine, I do not consider it an eco friendly option, but I DO find this thing incredible. I am putting this in the camping section because it was build as an overlanding vehicle for a family. enjoy the pics
How it started out.

Turned into this!!!

I saw this online looking up a science related news article for school. It has a lot of cool features, like the ability to filter waste water into drinking water. (Or claims to be able to) Being able to use water from the water heater to heat the engine in cold climates.

Here's the original link I saw it at. It has a lot of information on why they picked certain things.

yeah I have watched the build as it happened. Jay and his family are now back in the states but recently had a hiccup in their build. The rear axle broke away front the frame and cause some minor damage.
