I think you mean a fleet size van. If i put that in my minivan there will be no room left over.

Yes, they developed it for a Sprinter-tall-type, but they said they would make more sizes. But the height is the height. The inner box holds all the contents and luggage.

I think it is a fun concept, but I can imagine just as RV's fall apart with use, this one will be especially prone to that. But a +1 for creativity.

Cute and all but if I already have a Sprinter sized van, why do I need this?

So they can charge you a fortune for this thing that dramatically decreases the space you have available to carry anything!
