I think we all agree that the basic "features" of this trailer are not what we would find appealing.
Looking at the pictures of the interior, I'm immediately struck by the cleaning issues. Can you imagine what a grunge pit that shower will become after a few months of use? How on earth are you supposed to keep those wooden slats clean?
My wife would be wiping out that sink bowl all of the time to keep the water spots down.
We used to have a Vanagon Westfalia with an upper bunk. I was a lot sprier back then and could climb up there pretty easily. Not any more. At least that had some head room, unlike this setup.
I've never seen a sliding glass door that I would want to keep. I've had a couple and did away with them asap. Why would someone think that was a good idea in a mobile situation? Maybe the weight
is partially explained by a very stout frame?
The kitchen looks nice but we all know that real RVer don't have stemware sitting upright in the cupboards. They obviously don't understand the realities of mobility.
I like a bed. Not something that converts into a bed but a real bed that takes 3 minutes to make in the morning and 5 seconds to fold down the covers at night. I don't see a real bed in this trailer.
On the outside, I've had aluminum siding before. You don't want to stand too close to it or your breath will put a dent in it. At least if the siding is painted the dent doesn't show up so bad. Flat shiny aluminum would advertise every flaw to the world. I don't want to become like some owners and spend more time working on my RV than using it. Even brand new the siding shows uneven surfaces due to a non-flat substructure. What will it look like in 10,000 miles?
I suppose the umbrella over the porch is sturdier than most such shades but I'd take an awning
Lots of solar power
is a nice thing but if it won't run the a/c then it isn't enough. 600 watts peak power, more like 300 watts in typical use, will run the lights
and water pump but not a fridge
, stove, a/c or furnace
. It still needs propane
and a generator
. Of course you could top things back up with the tow vehicle or an add-on generator
but for $150,000 it aught to be better.
In short, not much value there in my opinion. On the other hand, if you are the sort that thinks $100,000 spent on a tiny house is a good deal then maybe it make sense to you.
