That is pretty, but gen-u-ine vapourware, as far as I can see.

So you will want to see this real 1960s Suleica FS430 Schwimmcaravan being towed by an Amphicar or self-propelled by outboard motor:





Many more pictures on the Suleica website page - about 1/3rd of the way down.

LOL!!! Uh oh! Does the motor on the back now make that "trailer" a real RV? We've been having this discussion on another thread.

That door would have to seal one heck of a lot better than my Scamp!

Good point, Steve. But the naysayers would probably not believe any watercraft to be a vehicle either.

Cool looking units, all of them.

There's quite a bit of fiberglass on this puppy



But this is more my style:

I don't think they intended to have the door sealed on a Scamp.

You're right, Cindy- that's why it's up so high.


The "lowboy" version didn't work out so well...

I think that'll be my next mod. A scuba egg, Scegg (patent pending). Just need a good rubber seal on the door. The '69 aluminum jalousies seem tight and the floor has no soft spots so it'll be fine.

Just hoping to get some feed back on wether I should adjust my tire pressure according to Boyles Law and is it safe to use P rated tires?
Also can I change my towing capacity according to Archimedes Principle? How about in Europe? Is hitch weight now affected? Could I ad a second battery to the tongue?

Fiberglass subs are already out there- cobbled together by a real motivated group of entrepeneurs, too, and coming soon to a beach near you if the Coasties don't catch 'em first....Read all about narcosubmarines.

Wow,... I wonder if they have rallies?

Sketchy stuff. Talk about home built.

Now with my last post I've probably been flagged by Home Land Security, the DEA and the RCMP....... They'd probably have to dismount to catch a sub though.

They sure do!



And it's not that hard to get an invitation, either...

Franseca:

Ice fishing gone bad! Why drivable things should remain on land.

Let's see and the outlets and thermostat are in retarded places too. Or is it my husband just tends to sit on what ever is plugged in and the thermostat cover.
