It looks cool- but you'd need an awfully wide camping spot to open it up! They must not pack them in so tight down under.

It would have been nicer if the designers: a) ever did any RV camping, if they did it would be very different. b) had a clue how all of those mechanical movements would stand up under road use c) knew anything about weight distribution, that one will fall over as soon as the cabin is rotated and, d) didn't think that there was a market for a very small trailer that would cost $100k+.

It reminds me of some of the design ideas that were seen in the "House of Tomorrow" at Disneyland, in 1955.

Doesn't look like anything I'd buy. Too many moving parts for a start. How would it rotate when full of dust and road gravel?
I like camping for the ease and simplicity - that looks quite the opposite.

Cool concept. Looks interesting.

Though this likely will never be produced, it is still fun to see peoples ideas, it gets ones own thinker going.

Very cool! Problem is you are only really gaining the covered patio. A lot of effort when you could come close to the same effect with a solid sliding roof and a screen room.

It reminds me of a Crosley radio that used to sit in my neighbor's kitchen when I was growing up!
