Hmm, took a bit to find actual interior shots. That's a nice looking unit inside. I like it. Searches on Craigslist turned up nothing!

According to the Saab forums, they were really only seen in Europe. The photos on your link all had Euro plates. If you type toppola into google and then hit the images link, the first page of photos has floor plans and interior shots.

Regards,

Matt

I can't seem to find it, but there was a video hanging around a few years back of a 5th wheel connected to a post sticking out of the center of a VW (or another small car). The video shows the car was able to do a 360 so that it could drive facing the 5th wheel.

I do know that the term "5th wheel" came from the first tow / trailer setup like that. See this link: Glenn Curtis Fifth Wheel RV

I saw one of those somewhere in a museum, or a book, or both. Cotton pickin memory is going fast. But that's the origin, so the guy shown here in this thread isn't all that far off base.
