Floating camper

A friend of mine in Germany thought I might like seeing a camping trailer that is also a boat! I think it's pretty cool.

Our DD and her family live close to some big lakes and rivers that they like to boat/camp on. They would love one of these and would use it a lot.

Happy Camping

I didn't see mention of propulsion. I guess you could hang a couple of Mercs off the back or stick oars out the side windows

Maybe it's "Schwimm" powered.

One good wake from a larger passing boat and you'd be on the bottom...

Has an outboard BUT too much tophamper in terms of windage if not weight, terrible final stability most likely, inefficient hull form obstructed by wheel wells, wheels, no question makes a lot of leeway in the slightest breeze. This thing and large lakes and rivers shouldn't come in contact unless drowning holds more appeal for you than it does for me!

LOL, an egg that floats! Saw this link and came to check and see if it was posted here.

Pretty cool at first glance but it appears to be an answer to a question no one was really asking. I mean, is it really so hard to find a place to put your boat trailer that you need wheels on your boat instead?

Usually, when an egg floats that high, it's ready for the garbage. 8-{D}}

So how often do you need to grease the wheel bearings? Hate to think about the brake jobs with dead fish in there.........
