Thinking of downsizing?

If you're thinking of a smaller rig and you don't want a small MH with a toad, maybe you should consider just camping in the toad: http://manneli.com/movies/tech/Swiss-RoomBox.html

I think that stuff would look silly in the back of the dually.

I'd never remember how to put it back together, but this has limited uses and one of them is NOT full-timing unless I wanted to live like a nomad. I also noticed the weather was always nice, the water was plentiful and so was the power. Where does the waste water go? And lastly what about bathroom facilities - hopefully they are nearby or you'll not be able to follow the "leave no trace" method of camping?

Just think, if someone steals your car, they'll also steal your house, appliances, water, power, food, clothing, etc, but that's just like a truck camper (this happened to a friend).

Clever, but for some very distinct uses. This is fun to know about. Right now I do this when I'm not towing the Monty but probably paid a lot less money.

Wonder what they do when you have one of those spells of rain for 3 or 4 days with cool temps??
For us, I think NOT

Based on what it costs, I think you should have your choice of the "hippy girl" or the "studly dude" depending on your desires

At today's rate that's $9400.00 plus shipping which I would imagine would be a large number.

I could buy a used camper for less than that. I would have more room, be completely self-contained and protected from the weather. That price is ridiculous. I realize the cost in engineering and size, but let's get real. It's for camping! Did anyone notice that there's even a cubby hole to keep a Swiss Army knife OPEN in it's own compartment? That alone is probably several hundred dollars worth of engineering.

Wait a minute, I just heard recently in the news that Zurich, Switzerland is now the most expensive place to live. The citizens in Zurich, Switzerland must have bought a boatload of these $10,000 camping kits and drove the cost of living way up.

Them Swiss are getting way more clever than their German neighbors.

I thought it was a great concept myself. Defffinately not for me at my age and position now. But I could surely have seen that 35 yrs ago. In fact at that time would have said thats just fantastic, and I would be a struttin.........lol
