'Bongo' campers?

Does anyone know anything about these car/vans?

A friend has suggested they might be suitable for me, as I want just one vehicle to use for camping and for everyday use, and have limited parking space.

But I can't seem to work out what they're all about?

Adverts I've seen for them say they're 8-seaters that you can use as a camper. What happens to the seats? I really don't need 8 of them!

And I've read they've got removeable camper tents. Does that mean all the campervan stuff is in an attached tent and you just convert the carseats to a bed?

And do they have a loo?

They are Japanese imports, and don't have a loo. If you have a trawl round the Japanese car importer sites you will see what's available. IMHO they're just a dayvan that might work for a weekend at a push.

There is a club for these vehicles it is called the Bongo Fury club. The best sales outlet is www.wellhouseleisure.com.
Some can be found for sale on E-Bay. Dandy(new member) bought his from E-Bay. Try a PM.

There are several 'Bongo' owners on site, eg Dandy. Check out the members list and see who they are and perhaps PM them.

Only just spotted this. I run the Bongo owners club. Any questions, just ask.

Bongo owners are human too!
