This has nothing to do with fiberglass and compact trailers. We are the school of simplicity, however, there is another school of thought. Aren't you glad you were not bitten by this bug?

Wow! Might as well put wheels on your house.

I'll wager that the fuel costs for that rig for a summer of rambling would pay for a new Casita or such.

To each his own.

If one can afford the costs of this custom coach and the MB in the lower garage.....well lets face it the cost of the fuel is but a minor inconvenience!

We'd all do it if we could afford it!

overkill is right!

To me stuff like that just means prestiege and $$..... other things in life are so much more important.....

Not me, I wouldn't do it. Too fancy for my blood. I'm still thinking that I'm going over the edge a little in looking for a trailer--what on earth has been wrong with camping in a tent all these years?

Still looking for a 17' Casita with bath in the western US...

No way. You'll have to speak for yourself on that one.

Awhile back I started a thread about Keeping our little eggs original or turning them into something else and came to the concensus that most people will change the insides to suit thier needs...Who Knows maybe this is what they NEED.

They look happy....Do you think they would have those smiles on thier faces after spending a week boon-docking in my Boler 1300???

I imagine also that it is all on how you were brought up and can almost say that the child in the picture will never have to worry about the stink of wet cloths in a small camper when he grows up either.
To those who say "To Hoity-toity for their blood"...maybe you said the same about your microwaves at one time.
I have a freind who still says that about computers and myself see no earthly need for a cell phone so the people in the picture must think that they cannot do without this bohemouth of a camper...
Just my opinion.
Gerry the canoebuilder...I still get around the lake under muscle power and not GAS.

Too me it means a lot of extra work that's not worth my time while traveling. The logistics of maintaining a rig like that would be overwhelming not to mention that the areas I go to seek solitude and peace would not accommodate a rig like this.

In this day and age, you also become a target for criminals when such abnormal possessions are so visible.

The final analysis is that it's their business how they choose to travel and spend their $$.

Exclamation

This is a candidate for those "campgrounds" that would turn a Fibergalss Trailer away for being too small.

I wonder if they "Stealth Camp"?

I've never seen one... They must be good at it.

The rudest SOB I ever met while camping in my Casita (in fact, the only SOB I've met while camping in my Casita) was a guy who had this enormous gigantic rig who was towing around one of those cars that's also a boat. My wife and I were talking to his wife who liked the Casita, and he walked up and started commenting about what piece of junk our trailer was.

No, I didn't kick his butt down the road. But I thought about doing that.

I could have said something about his over-consuming rig, but I simply turned my back on him and walked away. His wife was quite embarassed by his rudeness. Having his face rearranged could likely fix his attitude, but he caught me a couple years too late--the anger management saved him.

He ( the SOB ) was exhibiting a classic case of insecurity and lack of self esteem.

And no doubt completely justified.

Well isn't that special (using Dana Carvey's Church Lady voice). Let's face it, arrogance isn't all that uncommon. When this type of thing happens to me, I just chuckle and say to myself I'm glad we're not related..can you even imagine what the poor wife lives with, or if he should have a twin?
