Roxanne's post interested me; I am new and just starting out also. I have a 2004 Toyota Tundra so I guess I need to check out how much I can pull. I spent some time in a 17' Burro and that appealed to me, plus I suspect it would feel almost like nothing on the back of my truck. But I didn't really have to use the bathroom facilities in the Burro so that's still a point to be discovered.

BUT I had an idea last night and I need to figure out just how off-the-wall it is, so when I found this website I thought maybe someone else has already had the same idea and maybe someone would know just how crazy or impractical it might be. Perhaps (most likely!) it's been done before.

I currently live in a studio apartment which consists of a huge open work area plus tiny bathroom, bedroom and kitchen. I do need my studio to create the jewelry, garments and fabric that I sell. I have lots of supplies for my business although due to recent divorce other worldly possessions are at a minimum.

What if the tiny bedroom, bathroom and kitchen were detachable? And on wheels? I could take off and sell my stuff all over, then come back and "dock" to the stationary studio to create more work.

Any thoughts or experience?

I split this from Roxanne's 2004 Nissan Murano Just Starting Out topic... to help keep that one on topic.

Rebecca, we have several couples who follow antique/craft fairs to sell wares. They're all molded lightweight fiberglass RV owners. So, we know it is workable. Perhaps one of them will jump in the discussion.
