Are those really aluminum frames, Per? While I have only seen them on web sites - with the exception of the Tab - what I'm seeing is generally stamped steel. Since they are sometimes galvanized, not painted, they look like unfinished aluminum. Al-Ko says "The AL-KO chassis is Hot Dipped Galvanised." I don't see a material indication in the BPW information, but they looked like stamped galvanized steel to me, too.

I agree that these European designs are more highly optimized; they are also produced by chassis manufacturers (such as Al-Ko and BPW) which amortized development and tooling costs among many clients sharing a common modular design, while North American trailer makers tend to "brew their own".

Information is good. Lack of information is not so good, but misinformation is much worse. Check facts, and apply common sense liberally.

I just dont understand why these trailers are so eliquent on the inside. I dont know where [b]everyone else camps but i am ususally around sand and dirt etc.
I have a lot of friends who say that camping is a [b]3-star hotel.
Many of them have 40 foot motorhomes that they paid more for than I paid for my house. They tend to insist on resorts like this one:

Wouldn`t the electric leveling jacks that are standard equipment with the unit level the trailer?.......anyone know the price?.....Benny

My guess, "if you have to ask, you can't afford it!"

However, my next door neighbor and camping mentor (a retired state employee) is on his SEVENTH RV/motorhome. It's a coach longer than his house.

Donna, Donna, Donna, If I'm not mistaken, it does have a rear bedroom!! Now you need to go get one, modify your panel truck, and pull 'er on down to Bullards. I guarntee you will have the most looked at trailer at the park!!!
Shall we start a poll on how much this thing is gonna cost?! Whatdaya think...100,000
Via Con Dios
Randy and Renee
Yeah, what a waste of good space. I see the "nose" section which is typiclly a bedroom in 5th wheels...isn't in this trailer. It's used to hold all the electronics, etc. So now I know why there are stairs under the television.

I think Bardy's trailer is going to be the most looked at trailer at the Oregon Gathering.

Okay, I say $250,000 for the trailer.

The typical front bedroom in a "fifth-wheel" is why those trailers are 12 feet and more tall. It is also usually at the top of a steep and narrow set of stairs. These characteristics don't appeal to everyone.
