    In fact, there was a parallel tent set up available for the classic 900 from the early 80’s on.

    Many UK Saab dealers had one and rented it out.

    It fitted over the hatch, and allowed sleeping in the car with space for cooking, more bed space, etc.

    I wish some company would make an affordable replica of the Toppola and SAABO. These would be great for driving vacations.
