It’s got anything you need to spend several days on the road while having a total blast. The 2012 Volkswagen Crafter was bought by Zayn Malik and Louis Tomlinson, probably back in the day when they still believed they had a say in their tour traveling arrangements.

Wanting to make the most of the time they spent on the road, they headed over to Yiannimize and asked that the Crafter be transformed in a fun Mystery Machine – you know, like the van used in Scooby Doo, only funner.

The result, believed to have cost about $85,000, is a super-secure and comfortable play area, which is also equipped with a kitchinette, reclining chairs, a bed and underfloor heating. The van will go up for sale with Classic Car Auctions in August, and is expected to fetch $35,000 to $50,000. A bargain, if you consider its history and original pricing.

Among other impressive features, you get: 360-degree surveillance cameras, a PA system and water jets that should keep all your rabid fans at bay. Note that there is no record of the water jets ever having been used on Onedirectioners, which isn’t strange: the van has only 2,610 miles on its odometer.

Since this was a custom job, the two first-class captain’s chairs are monogrammed. The van also has legit comic book ceiling and “an earth shaking sound system, roof mounted laser show, […] and remote air conditioning,” the description reads. “To keep you amused there is a choice of a Sony PlayStation, Xbox 360, Super Nintendo, Wii, classic Atari console and a 55" Sony Bravia plasma TV.”

All in all, there are far worse ways to spend your days and nights while you’re chauffeured from place to place. Here’s a video of the Scooby-Doo custom job:
