Do you get somebody with it, to put it together each time you move camp? Never seen so many things that move one way or the other.

And if you flip it upside down, you can use it as a boat.

$115k seems a bit much for a glorified popup.

I noticed that too. Available all through Europe and in Australia, with two small diesel and on gas engine for options. Being a bit bigger than the old Ranger, and with the F150 being a bit smaller than earlier versions, Ford opted to not bring it to North America.

I can't see anywhere near $115k, maybe 1/2 that, a BIG Maybe.
And how does he hold the extended bed UP, maybe that's why it still isn't in production.
(WAIT: I was just told how.... In Australia things fall UP so they are more concerned with holding it down than up.)

But... from my own personal experiences in outfitting Aussies for full timing in the USofA, RV'ers down under seem to have to spend a lot more money on toys than up here. When I outfit them with a Toyota RV for $15-$18k, that's pocket change in their world.

Remember the Aussie dollar is worth less than ours 115k is about 103 US or 109 Cad but still as has been said that's a lot of money for a trailer that size even if you can take it all over the outback!

With all those moving parts, I'd not take it off the tarmac.
