What an unusual idea.. like a double "Bump", cause it isn't big enuff for a buldge!

OK, how about "Clever"; "innovative"; "Engineering MarveL" or the infamous "Gruntable"?

Oh, I LIKE "gruntable"!!

Gina, I'm so sorry I missed meeting you at Kennedy School when you were up here. On the afternoon everyone was there, I was going through my Bigfoot orientation at the dealership in Sandy (many miles from NE Portland). I am looking forward to meeting you on your next visit...

It's all that!

I wonder how hard it is to set up? How does it fold?

from what I can gleen from the interestingly translated pages I have seen (Which are great entertainment in themselves.. what are "Well over run brakes"?) it cranks in and out. The roof tilts slightly to open then locks in place? Thats what it looks like from one of the ad photos.

It is a walk thru! Here are some more pics I found.

What a fun thing!

" The dwelling offers place for 8 persons and sleep opportunity with its comfortable seat sofas for 4 persons. "

I wonder if this thread needs to be moved to the "Jokes" forum. What a hoot!

The roof also raises slightly for ventilation, a la Compact Junior if I believe what I saw in one photo.
