Steve,

That looks like it might be molded fiberglass.

Reading from right to left, it says "Love Travel Love Life"

I cheated. My wife is from China and was an English teacher there for 30 years.

Even at 25MPH I'm not sure I'd want to drive that thing. Even normal-height 3-wheelers tip pretty easily. A 3-wheeled RV might roll if you turn too fast at parking lot speeds.

I'm not being real serious, but I have owned some peculiar rigs over my lifetime.

They admitted later on that they "rigged" the Robin so it would roll much more easily than normal. Still funny though!

Rigged? How? By not having May or Hammond drive? Note that EVERY roll-over is on a left turn with Jezzer seated on the "proper" right side. May or Hammond might not have been enough to make the car (.... errmmmm.... motorcycle?) list enough to capsize.

Apparently TG modified the rear differential on the Robin to make it roll more easily. Not clear exactly what they did to it, though.
