From the Carawagon Range Rover brochure: 
   The Carawagon Range Rover brings entirely new dimensions to travel - it combines
the comfort of a limousine - the road holding and performance of a sports car - the
go-anywhere ability of a Land Rover with the independence of a Carawagon - converting
in seconds into a miniature but luxurious lounge with dining and sleeping facilities. The
'Series 100' is a luxury 2-door vehicle, seating six and sleeping two, with elevating roof,
cooking, washing and storage facilities.
   A special low profile version of the Searle elevating roof provides interior standing room.
The elevating roof is erected in seconds by a single movement which provides full standing
(walking) facility for the length of the vehicle, giving 188 cm (6' 2") maximum height over an
area 193 cm x 125 cm (6' 4" x 4'). The structure is coach-built in metal and laminated wood
and completely vandal proof. When retracted the special roof offers low wind resistance and
seals perfectly to the Range Rover enhancing the visual aspect of the vehicle.
   The centre console, a veritable magic box, contains the handbasin having electrically-
pumped water supply, fold-away cooker with grill, a 75 cm (2' 6") cantilevered table suitable
for either dining or working and three storage compartments.
   Twin single beds, completely independent of the twofront seats, full length beds are formed
using the backrests of the deeply upholstered dining area seats. When reassembled for day-
time use, the lounge area offers comfortable seating as an eating, working or discussion area.
