I wonder if it comes complete with kids:

As someone that's into vintage pedal mopeds from the 70's, I definitely like this. Thing is, there's no way one could actually sleep in that loft area. It's not long enough unless there's some type of slide--out. Where's the AC?

Certainly is a gas saver with all the comforts of home!

Likely an owner/user would have little need for an exercise machine, so quite a cost savings there also.

Wonder how its performance compares with something powered with, say -- a Cummins?

As a long-time cyclist the first thing I notice are the brakes, or lack thereof!

I'm assuming that there's a back brake, but as with all wheeled vehicles most of the stopping power is in the front. I'd love to see this concept executed with more state-of-the-art materials and design parameters. With the use of Carbon-fiber shell and an aluminum or titanium frame the weight of this thing could likely be cut in half! The use of modern mountain-bike disk brakes, suspension components and drive-train could result in a machine that would be fun and (almost) practical to use for extended trips!

Intriguing!

Is anyone old enough to remember a comic strip called "Humphrey'?
Seems Humphrey got about in a similar rig that he made himself.
As Humphrey was as big as his domicle, I always wondered how he slept.

As I recall, the "house" Humphrey had on the back of his bike was an outhouse complete with crescent moon hole in it! Also, as I recall, Humphrey was a big guy so he probably didn't sleep in his bike RV. Funny, as a kid I never wondered what the purpose of the bike/outhouse combo was. Just enjoyed his adventures.

Note the lever just in front of the left knee. The lever activates brakes on the back.
