You don't need to spend six or seven figures to enjoy a comfy motorhome meticulously furnished for quick or extended road trips. This year's Düsseldorf Caravan Salon revealed that, with a little strategy and technique, even the smallest vans can serve as comfortable, well-equipped motorhomes. You won't find stretched, tower-roofed Ducatos or Sprinters here – these compact to downright tiny camper vans stretch no more than 5.3 m (17.4 ft) long, with many are under 5 m (16 ft). Despite the limited dimensions, each one is able to live much larger than its small footprint might suggest.

Researchers from the University of California (UC) San Diego have created robotic gliders that literally fly like an eagle. Using a form of machine intelligence called reinforcement learning, the gliders learned through experience, like birds, how to exploit updrafts of warm air to soar to altitudes of up to 700 m (2,300 ft).

Glavan walls off the VW T6 to create a cozy adventure camper van for two

Glavan shows the Free camper van at the 2018 Düsseldorf Caravan Salon

After looking over dozens of Volkswagen Transporter camper vans, they can start to appear a dime a dozen. A kitchen against the side of the van, a rear bench that folds into a bed, a pop-up roof - it's been done over and over. At this year's Düsseldorf Caravan Salon, Slovenia's Glavan showed a Transporter camper van laid out a little differently.
