What's the point? I was stopped cold when this was described: "Each function has its own cell" The same could be said for jail

All I can say is it's different.

I think that like MANY "concept' things it will differ significantly if/when it gets to production.

I agree TOTALLY that is appears un-aerodynamic.
and it DOES look... ummm.... butt uggggggly

BUT the "concept" of cell construction - adding prefab cells to make a unique coach does have merit. Think it thru.....

If it had that F1 bomber anti radar stuff on it maybe I would like it.
But it doesn't and I don't.

It reminds me of the 60's German weird fashions.
Sometimes I wonder what they could be thinking.

And the cells would be held together with? Butyl rubber and rivets? Stainless steel bolts?

Well, lookie there! What's that, Paw?

That there, Son, is a space-ship.

What's it do'in here, Paw?

Lookin at it, I'd be guessin they abducted people who used to drive that car.

Gosh . . . I guess we best get going. Wouldn't want to get myself snatched!

Now don't you worry yourself, son. If anything comes out we just shoot it.

Editor of squob.com here, great to see healthy discussion about the Mehrzeller travel trailer!

I wondered if anyone here is aware of the Concord fiberglass travel trailers from New Zealand? They were cult items in the 1970s, and the original molds apparently still exist. Rumours abound that production may start up again:

13-foot Concord caravan

Archive brochure cover

Anyway, this forum is a real find - we're planning to cover the best of the fibreglass caravans on squob.com in the near future.

It's interesting, for sure.

Looks more like an hotel room than a camping trailer ... but I suppose that works for some people.

Nice to see people thinking outside the box.

Cam A That is a neat looking rig! A Picasso cubistic egg or the antithesis of our eggs! However, I believe it should be wind tunneled tested before it is taken out onto the highways. It just might be invisible on radar as well. But it might have a little to many sharp edges inside, but if they were padded, it might not be a health hazzard.

Chris Squob, I am glad you found this forum as well! Moldered fibreglass caravans RULE for sure.

The New Shasta by Coachmen is the antithesis of the Mehrzeller, very retro on the outside and pretty updated inside. And it is not just a drawing and has a price tag. Edit add: upon looking at the Shasta interior, I believe the interior is more Art Deco (retro as well) which makes it look almost futuristic. Very nice look inside.

I actually think it's kinda fun looking, (don't need one) but if someone gave it to me, heck I would camp in it. Love the inside! Robin
