Artist Kevin Cyr has added a touch of whimsy to Recreational Vehicles, elevating them to a sculptural piece. He has pushed the boundaries of what traditional RVs should look like and has created two distinct, one-of-a-kind eco-friendly RVs - a Camper Bike that one rides like a bicycle, and a Camper Kart built atop a shopping cart.
