Benchmark Vehicles has caught our eye in the past with bold, bright-orange branding and vicious-looking off-road adventure vans. So we decided to dig a little deeper into its portfolio and see what the Portland, Oregon shop has been up to of late.

Hymer makes the DuoCar S a little less conspicuous with the tinted windows, simple color scheme ...

Follow camping or travel at all and it's almost impossible to wander Instagram or YouTube without stumbling on them – the mid/late-20s, attractive #vanlife couple exploring the world in a garage-made conversion, often flashing a little man bun or some strategically positioned cleavage. Scarily enough, future generations of these instafamous nomads will be able to skip the build and get out road-tripping and exposing flesh and follicles that much more quickly. Set to move from concept to reality this year, Hymer's DuoCar S has been thoroughly optimized for adventurous twosomes, roaming the world with a spacious floor plan, convertible rear bathroom and smart off-grid power system.
