While this looks cool, and fairly creative, I can't say I can fault the police for making him take it off the road. It looks a bit too rickety.

No interior shots? Oh, and how would you store this if removed? It doesn't look like it can stand on its own.

What a killjoy.

You'd probably like the Toyota version instead, now THAT should never be allowed on the road! This has got to be the worst thing a major car company has ever created.

^^ That must be the reproductive organ of a Toyota factory caught in the moment of giving birth to another Prius!

He should rather followed the same approach of that Swedish Toppola camper targetted to Saab owners.

It almost looks like a shed from a Brazilian favela.

Interesting. It looks like he removed the hatchback door to make this work.

Nimble, that looks like a Prius stole Donald Trump's hair.

I thought that I found that and posted about it on here. Oh well.

Probably. But it still doesn't make so much sense anyway. He would be better off if he adapted one of those expansible roof tops (often referred to as "pop-top") widely used in European and Asian campervans.
