The RV lacks ground clearance. My goodness there is a Mercedes Benz under there too!

Re: neet RV but not like my Crown

this is just plain "nuts"
This thing is for sure not build for the Alaska Hwy. way to low to the ground.
Watched an RV show on TV a few weeks ago where they showed a 2 Million Dollar RV. Looks like something like this.
It didnt have the car underhood storage, but it had BBQ and Fridge underneath including a 30" Flatscreen TV so you can BBQ and watch the game outside. And of course many other fancy options.

OMG what a toy hauler that is!

I guess I need a rear engine bus if I'm going to try doing that...

Re: neet RV but not like my Crown

Those pictures are wrong. Look at the interior shots then look at the outside shots. Notice it has different windows. Humm Plus the interior pics are far longer then that bus is. Someone mixed some photos. And it has dual slideouts (each side) while the pics outside so not.

Re: neet RV but not like my Crown

Are you sure those interior shots show slideouts? Also the plates are european so we don't know the size requirements for the country that rig is destined for.

Re: neet RV but not like my Crown

Those RV photographers can definitely make an RV look bigger than it really is. But I guess that if you can afford that RV, you can afford the tow truck to move it when you get high centered on a 6" speed bump.

I've often wondered what I would do if I ever won the lottery RV wise. I just don't know if I'd buy a fancy Class A. I think people in this country are too worried about how they appear to others. That's why I like my skoolie. Most people wouldn't look twice if they saw that big fancy RV driving down the highway. They're everywhere. But they'll look at a crazy $2,000 school bus! HOWEVER, if I did win the lottery, I'd definitely upgrade to a bigger and newer bus! Say a flat nose, 15 window, DT466, MT643, that will go 80 mph on the highway. Then since I wouldn't have to work ever again, I'd spend my days pimping it out!

Re: neet RV but not like my Crown

i think the slideout with the car is an extraordinary idea. i've never seen that before. Pulling a toad is such a drag. On the flip side, Immagine how much storage you'd have if you decided not to bring the car.



even though this rig costs far more money than the average person could afford, i still admire the creativity of the person(s) who designed it.

Re: neet RV but not like my Crown

I have to wonder how the frame looks on this thing. It can't be as good as any bus out there.
