3' Itis or Size Matters

For those that want to always be the top dog at the campground, consider this as a starting point. It's currently listed in the Houston, TX Craigslist for $19,500. And you can always add a 13' Casita for the less desirable relatives.

I agree, but can't you just see the look on the rangers face when you pull up and ask for a tent site so you don't have to pay for hook-ups? BTW: It's 48 feet looooog. LOL

Bob, your picture brought back a memory.

At Pismo Beach SP this summer, the Tulare Co Sheriff's Department was busily setting up tents when we checked in. Next day the campers arrived in a double decker bus, looking absurdly large on the narrow campground roads. 80-100 kids in the 8-15 year age range poured out.

We were a bit concerned, but they proved to be great neighbors- it was a very well-run camp.

WOW that's awesome. With the tiny house movement going on in North America, that is cheaper compared to the small trailer units I have seen on the TV Show and would be 2 stories. Can sell or rent out the lower level and call it a condo unit. LOL. Just have to make sure your lower level tenant wants to go for a drive if you want to drive it out somewhere.

Thanks for sharing the image of the double decker. Yuppers on the cool factor!

On the "Tiny House movement" thingy. Cari and I are full timing in a 40+ foot rig because of our desire to live big in a small place. Zoning for a Tiny House in our area of Oregon is insane. The reason we decided to go with an RV in a trailer park ( : ours just happens to have a golf course : ) rather than a Tiny House is the county does not allow "Camping" anyplace other than an RV park, and they have deemed Tiny Houses to be an RV/camping and can not be placed on private land accept for temporary housing while building a _real_ house. Sucks. ~2 years of fighting with the county on getting a zoning/build permit we gave up... But that is another thread , (

Not sure why cities are so slow joining the 21st century.

Agreed. It is sad to see peeps paying such high rent in our area (~1200 for a typical apt here on the Oregon Coast) that would be so well served in a cute tiny house (which some have stated they would luv). Portland put out this big to-do warm&fuzzy tree-hugger political thingy a few years back promoting the idea and once a few TH showed up in nice neighborhoods the realators/owners united and got city/county zoning to go the other way for the most part. Sad.

This is totally fabulous!! I'll have to share it over to some other camping groups I'm in. I hope someone buys it and uses the heck out of it!

I think this thing is the result of a subway train running up over a city bus.

I am sure the roof escape hatch's can be modified to become sun roofs.
