Hitchhiking with a BIG difference

How's this for an idea, leave your car at home, push the Eriba down the road a few metres and then for the next 3,700km stick out your thumb and get anyone with a towbar to hitch up your van and take you further. I'm going to have to try this sometime.

Oh I'm glad you found this Alan.

This guy had a flickr page I think, dedicated to this trip but I failed to find it again recently. If my memory serves, he started the project with a different make of van but it wasn't up to the job. Love the finish on the Eriba.

Well I didn't exactly find it R. as it was a featured article in our local Sunday newspaper. Well the neighbours if the truth be told as we're too tight-fisted to buy a copy ourselves.

Wish I could find the link to whichever photo gallery he used to publish his photos. 100's of them and great to view.

What tickled me about your link is that on his Home Page he dedicates a special thanks to AL-Ko amongst others. Hope he got all his "good samaritans" to give their balls a brisk brushing up before he allowed them to get hitched with him.

Looking at the photos in the link that Eribanut has posted, the Eriba windows are covered with the same graphics as the rest of the van on the outside but the interior shots show an unrestricted view through the windows to the world outside.
We've often seen this on commercial vehicles. How does this work and how good is it? Does it give complete privacy inside or are they put in full view from outside once the lights go on? I think the overall appearance of the van is really cool.
Also, as I remembered, note that in some of the earlier photos the van he uses is not an Eriba.

It's all about the pinhole dots apparently. I guess that the brain fills in the gaps seen by the eye from the outside, and the reverse process takes place looking out from inside. This Polish site explains it - I won't criticise their English, which is a gazillion times better than my Polski!.
