That looks to be the most unseaworthy vessel I have ever seen. Idea is good, realization is flawed!

Translation: German » English Sealander - The floating caravan. Unlimited mobility on land and water. The amphibious Caravan Sealander, both as a bill of caravans on land and by means of an outboard motor, can move independently of water. | Developed and realistic

Fun concept and a cute rig... but I think I'll keep the Casita.

Salt water would be death on the running gear.

If they did that thing right, they would have built in some hollow areas and packed them full of foam for floatation. Otherwise, one good wave and it's "Blub, blub, blub".

Yes, from the late 50's I also believe it appeared in a James Bond movie.

It would turn turtle in a second, flotation or not. It needs either a weighted keel or outriggers. Inflatable pontoons might do the job.

There actually was a houseboat RV made sometime back in the 50s or 60s but it had more of a houseboat design, wide pontoons, not as sleek as an RV but more of a houseboat with wheels.

Here is a current RV, Cool Amphibious Manufacturers Ie

Note the pontoons and in some of the pictures, the heavy interior hull.

Interesting using the translate button. I looked at a few different languages just because of curiosity. Could read most of the Spanish, none of the Russian, etc.
