Not FG, but it could have been

A pretty nice RV, and if the aluminum had been FG it would have been even better. Someone put time and money into this beauty!

It certainly is nice. But the lack of windows in the camper portion would drive me nutz.

I am surprised about the no windows criticism of this RV from Fiberglass trailer enthusiasts.

Time and time again I read MANY comments on this forum from fiberglass trailer owners commenting about the small size of their trailer not being an issue since about all they do is sleep in the camper and not LIVING (spending time) in the trailer. Their time is spent outside the trailer.

Yes this RV does not have any windows. Having said that do you really think this owner is any different than so many of the small fiberglass trailer owners. He travels and sleep in this RV. It seems to me to be no different than so many fiberglass trailer owners.

Hard to look out the window when you are sleeping!

If all he planned to do was sleep why the kitchen and bathroom. Cooking in the dark with diesel sounds like a Zombie activity. After a few days in this unit depression just might become an issue.

I'll give this camper an "A" for exterior design (Cool !)
Give it the "Ray Charles Award" for interior lighting.
Submarine ventilation might make this safer.

Awesome concept. I have always loved vintage COE trucks. I would love to put a 16' Scamp on a vintage COE Ford Truck. He should have put in some windows. Even if you only sleep inside like most of us do, it would still drive me nuts on a rainy day if there were no windows.

wallas stove

The diesel stove is a Wallas stove and heater so no other heat supply is necessary. They are used in boats ,RV's ,small cabins its from Finland when they work they are remarkable Some of the c-dory crowd loves and some hate them . The C-Dory line of boats has them as an option . I thought about putting it in our Snoozy but at $1500 or more they are pricey.They basically would do 2 jobs for you heat and cooking . so no propane would be necessary.Jim .
