I assume, these small RVs fill a niche on a small island with a large population which we do not really have. From what I have seen, housing is much smaller and what is placed in them are more basic than what we have grown to expect. More sparse in our eyes, but functional. Not all of them where the very small ones. But none of the behemoths, we find roaming the roads here.
I would think there are bathhouses for them to use as well as toilets, making carrying there own not a priority. Perhaps long stays camping are not as common. But tent campers normally do not take bathrooms with them.
As for rather being in a tent, I tried that last summer. Things got wet when a thunder storm camp by with some strong wind and rain & hail. I believe I would rather sleep in the back of my pickup in the shell (which I did finally) and have an awning
of some kind to stand up in outside the vehicle. Not that I'm giving up the Scamp
. I do like the head room, the shower and the toilet, large fridge
equate better fuel milage, I believe. But I prefer large ones, too.
We have a similar niche here with those wishing to travel/camp in or having to live in vans and cars.
Not the best way to go perhaps, but a way to go. "Going" - being the objective. Might make the going more fun.
No answers, just suggestions to answers. IMHO!
As I said, I find it interesting seeing RVs for a different culture.
