This helps save you money and provides increased freedom, as you don’t need to fork out on powered sites to charge your Spaceship (unlike some other hire vehicles).

Seat-belted seating for 3-4

Unique swivel seat design for internal seating, eating and sleeping


The rear seat can be rotated to perform 3 unique features.

1. Driving: Position the seat so it is forward facing and it can seat up to two people.

2. Eating: Turn the seat so it's facing out the side door. This creates more space to sit inside and eat whilst still being connected to the outdoors. 

3. Sleeping: Turn the swivel seat so that's facing the back door, then add the bed extension to create a full size double bed inside.


Like a good car to drive 


The Beta Spaceship is a true pleasure to drive. It is compact enough to easily park in cities and on narrow roads. It is also very comfortable cruising long distances and great on the hilly and windy roads.
