Jeep "Campervan"

I know I am venturing into dangerous territory, so - flame on, if you want to

I am a big fan of 4x4 vans, Sportsmobile, Quigley. And I love my Jeeps. So what if the interior of the Commander would be more "Camper- or Minivan" like without compromising on the outside or ground clearance:
- Front seats svivel 180 degrees
- 3 row seats easily removable
Any other takers?

EXACTLY what I am talking about. (BTW, if the money is right, I might be trading my XK for a JK, but the deal I got on the Commander was so good that it is very hard to beat it.)

Ford built the quadra van a number of years ago, guess they didnt do too well. But I wanted one for years. The Sportsmobile, Quigley looks like the same thing.....I think these types of vehicles are great. I love the earthroamers

They're cool, but I'm not interested. If I were going for that, I'd just get a new Town and Country.

I actually have the compromise between the two; my Maggiolina roof top tent is mounted on my ute-trailer.
