Volkwagen Amarok with Bimobil camper – Click above for image gallery

If you had your heart set on a Volkswagen Amarok before the company made it clear that the truck wasn't heading to North America, prepare to have your wounds lightly salted. A company by the name of Bimobil has gone through the effort of creating a camper conversion for the handsome pickup. Instead of the drop-in style units that we're used to seeing here in the states, the Bimobil piece actually replaces the Amarok's bed altogether. From what we can tell, owners can easily detach the camper once they get to a suitable location in the event they have to go to town for important supplies. You know, like beer. Or a snake-bite kit.

Our Google Translator isn't much help in discerning exactly how much Bimobil is asking for the swank digs, nor what other special features the camper boasts. Even so, we're thinking that there are few better ways to vacation than from the back of a pickup. Besides, how awesome does this thing look? If you happen to speak German, you can head over to Bimobil's website and dream a little dream of mobile living. Otherwise, content yourself by having a look at our gallery below.

      Is this a paid commercial for VW and Bimobil??? That thing looks awful!!!! Not in a million years I would get that sure to be expensive piece of crap!

      Its my opinion, every one has the right to have one and I cant be wrong.

      3 stars await the person who can actually tell us how much it costs.

      I imagine that the camper, much like the truck is prohibitively expensive.

        A base 4x4 Amarok costs 28,000€ in Germany.
        A Golf TDI costs $22,000 in the USA.
        If you equip a Golf TDI exactly like the US-spec model, it costs 28,000€ in Germany.

        So the Amarok would cost $22K if offered in the US.... plus 25% chicken tax. (if they can't find a way to build them in Mexico or Chattanooga)

      This is a wonderful opinion. The things mentioned are unanimous and needs to be appreciated by everyone.
      I appreciate the concern which is been rose. The things need to be sorted out because it is about the individual but it can be with everyone

      Well, it's no 1970 Toronado, but I guess it will get the job done. ;)

      @Shomare no doubt the Amarok could too. We have Japanese small diesel pickups towing close too 8000lb 26-27ft Lightweight 5th Wheelers cruising at 65-70mph in Australia. Caravans in Europe are restricted to 30mph around cities and varying speeds from 45-60mph on their motorways

      Turn, tilt, lean,,,whooooaaaa!!!!!! Phew!!!!!! That was close!!!!!!!! Ten minutes later,,,,are we up to 60MPH yet??????? We have to turn 2 miles ahead....you better think about braking early....... okay,,,,turning,,,,,slowly,,,tiliting,,,leaning,,,phew, that was exciting!!!!!

      I don't care about VW products any longer that they won't bring here. Like the T5 camper van VW calls the 'CALIFORNIA' in Europe. or,,,, never mind, VW thinks we're idiots state-side.
