If you're a fan of camping, chances are you're also a fan of RVs. In fact, if you like vehicles, you're probably a fan of RVs too. And why not? They are the perfect combination between power and comfort. So, if you enjoy going on trips and expeditions, there is one vehicle that currently reigns supreme above all else, and that is the KiraVan.
The KiraVan is a formidable off-road RV that has been specifically designed to take you wherever you want to go and back again - safe, sound and comfortable. It was invented by Bran Ferren as a mobile learning lab for his daughter Kira (hence the name) but also with teams of photographers and families in mind. It can be used for anything from a family trip to a full scale scientific or journalistic expedition, trekking to remote locations with the same ease as on regular roads, and with many amenities at hand.
