What matters with the View Traveller is the amount of mobile real estate it gives you for the money. The van measures in at 5555mm long, 2060mm wide and 2310mm tall thanks to that high roof, meaning most of us really can stand inside. That gives you about 11 and a half square meters of real estate, so all you really have to do is rent a parking space and you have your own little condo on wheels. Tiny house hunting, anyone?
I jest, of course. Besides, the View Traveller won’t be good as a mobile condo given that it won’t win awards for interior design; it prioritizes function over form. The dashboard is familiar, but differentiated slightly, particularly with the center stack for the audio unit and manual dual airconditioning system. The steering wheel is decent, and has good grip about it, despite the urethane construction. One thing I noticed right away, and something that’s consistent with Chinese automobiles, is the relatively short seatbelt length. I guess they don’t have too many laterally bigger gentlemen in China that drive.
