Facilities In The Campervan
As such, you don’t need to carry much, because these campervans in Maharashtra have most of the things you need, like cooking utilities. The rear passenger seat of the minivan can easily turn into a flatbed, and there is also a repurposed trunk. If you want some extra space, you can check out the detachable living space that sits on the roof.
The bigger campervan has kitchen, living room, small bedroom, bathroom, and a ‘terrace’ on the roof. Both these vans also come with a waste disposal system, as well as GPS tracking systems. They’re also equipped with security sirens, and SOS buttons, as per a report by Times of India.
