No, the Avalon is a sedan with non-folding rear seats and a NiMH battery right behind the rear seats.

What do you think of a trailer, or hitch-mounted pop-up, or a roof-top tent as options? Does a hinged and folding mattress sound friendly to your back?
If I do go forward with this I'd probably go with a tear-drop trailer. I need something I can insulate the tar out of and big enough for two people. I don't know if it would work, but what if I made the trailer structure out of insulation panels and then just covered the whole thing in a layer of structural fiberglass sheets and resin and put that atop a flatbed trailer?
