The ad claims that with the MiniHome's wide offset wheels, beefed up stabilizer bar, and rear overload shocks; it handles very much like the stock VW. More product descriptions: "Inside, it has all the appointments and facilities of a standard camper. Appliances and storage space are situated across the rear. The butane stove and stainless steel sink in the left rear corner mount to a single module that slides out the side so you can cook and wash either outdoors or inside. A 50-lb size icebox is located in the center rear, and a closet is located on the right. Turning the large swivel-base chairs 180 degrees (backs against the windshield) opens up the center so the modular lower bed can slide out of its hideaway compartment. The cab-over section makes into a full-size bed by folding down a hinged extension."
