    Certainly is sympathetic with the concept of advanced aerodynamics!

    Well, one could streamline the master bedroom up front and the ballroom at the back a little bit...

    It probably drives like a pallet of bricks but they have made good use of the space and I like the access to the to the cabin. Interestingly there seems to be bedding for 4 people but only 2 seats.

    For a slow tour around France's country back roads it's probably ok though I'd hate to be paying for the fuel.

    The key words here are "slow tour" Aerodynamics only matter at autoroute speeds, on the winding minor roads you would be lucky to get to 90kph so this may be more practical than you imagine. Besides I can't see the fuel consumption being worse than a H van camper.

    Probably if it was used for the typical french holidays (depart 1 or 14 July from Paris heading south & return 31 July or 14 August), it would not have been going very fast on autoroutes anyway, I recall traffic jams backing up from Millau before the current bridge was built for 10's or even 100's of kms and so walking pace was often all that was needed. 2CV's were a boon on these occasions, your seats come out for the perfect picnic!!!
