Ever thought about buying an RV, then backed out because of all the extra cost storing one will incur? Whether you pay for storage at a local facility or renovate your home to make room for it, you’re going to be spending serious money just to keep one. And for many folks, that just isn’t worth it. What if you can get those same RV amenities in a more compact vehicle that can fit in most garage? That’s exactly what you’re getting with the Wingamm Oasi 540.
Yes, it looks like one of those modified European vans. That’s because… that’s exactly what it is. Unlike a typical van, this thing is a seriously well-appointed motorhome, bringing amenities you will rarely find in anything this compact.
The Wingamm Oasi 540 is, basically, a converted Ram Promaster (Fiat Ducato in Europe), which has been outfitted into a full-fledged camper van that delivers serious creature comforts on the road. And yes, it does that while coming in a size that should be accommodated in most garages, coming in at just 17.8 feet long, which is barely longer than the Ford Ranger and shorter than some pickup trucks out there. By creature comforts, we don’t mean some makeshift conveniences here and there. Instead, this is a full-fledged motorhome you can spend days and weeks thriving in.
Need a proper bathroom to get your daily hygiene requirements out of the way? Not a problem, as it has a dedicated the rear left corner for that, complete with shower, sink, and toilet. Granted, they’re all cramped inside, so you’ll be showering right next to the toilet and so on, but that still beats doing your dirty business in the bushes. Want a proper kitchen to prepare meals? It has that, too, with a two-burner stove, a 3.8-cubic foot fridge, a work top, and a stainless steel sink to boot, along with ample cabinet space for your cookware and cooking supplies.
The Wingamm Oasi 540 comes with ample living space, too. There’s a couch, for instance, that should fit three people comfortably (and more, uncomfortably), complete with a removable table when you need a place to eat all that food you just whipped up in the kitchen. According to the outfit, the tabletop is adjustable, too, allowing you to extended the dining area to six people if it’s ever necessary (just add some chairs, of course). If you notice, the roof of the van is extended. That’s because, it has a double bed retracted into the ceiling, which you can drag down once it’s time to get your nightly snooze, complete with a skylight, so you can spend a sleepless night counting stars until you finally doze off into slumber.
For storage, there’s one integrated into the rear bumper, a pair of wardrobes, and an overhead storage, along with cabinets and drawers scattered throughout the back. The creature comforts don’t end there, either, with a heater, heated laminated flooring, dimmable LED lights, and all sorts of swanky options for those willing to fork out a bit more.
The Wingamm Oasi 540 will hit American shores in the fall. No pricing has been announced, although the European version of the same conversion currently costs €61,270.
