    The HVP-200 Hover Shopper permits users to easily move above the hustle and bustle of the crowds of individuals who cram the spaces of massive market complexes and shops on the civilized worlds. Little more than a repulsorlift engine strapped to a comfortable chair with simple controls, and a rear secure cargo basket, the HVP-200 has proven popular with many of the galaxy's middle class. This conveyance allows those individuals to avoid the "embarrassment" of carrying their purchases by hand, as they cannot afford personal shopping or valet droids. Designed primarily to make long shopping "adventures" enjoyable, this product was on the market during the early years of the Empire. For those wishing double the speed, 100 times the altitude range, this can be achieved via installing a swoop bike's repulsorlift engine at a cost of 800 credits, more difficult handling, and being illegal in most urban centres.
