Is this one of the cutest and smallest camper vans ever?

    A couple has spent the last eight months travelling around Europe and living in a current-generation Suzuki Jimny off-roader.

    Woon and Laurens, who hail from Belgium and have a blog where they share their travels in their Jimny, have spent six months in Italy, as well as two months in Türkiye.

    The couple is now spending the next two months travelling to the North Cape, which is on the northern coast of the island Magerøya in Northern Norway.

    Woon and Laurens’ Jimny doesn’t have a rooftop tent like you would typically expect, and instead the couple transform the cabin into a bedroom with a self-made bed. They claim it only takes them three minutes to set up.

    Despite the Jimny’s compact dimensions, the couple says they can actually sleep in the car and there’s still “enough” room under the bed for luggage.

    For reference, Woon and Laurens measure 165cm and 180cm tall, respectively.

    From the outside there’s virtually no proof the couple sleeps in the Jimny apart from the reflective sunshades that are used to retain heat inside the vehicle.

    The couple has removed the tailgate-mounted spare wheel and put a small storage box in its place. It appears to house all their cooking utensils.
