What do you think of this homebuilt RV?

We will all agree, right, that this RV did not come off a manufacturer’s production line? And we will all agree that it will almost certainly never will. Are we correct to say that? Our staff thinks so.

All right, then. Now that we are in agreement, here, from a mind-merge of our brilliant, creative RVtravel.com staff members, are some of our thoughts about this most unusual recreational vehicle:

• It is not aerodynamic.
• Its second floor would not survive a pass under most highway bridges.
• It would probably qualify as a truck camper. Or maybe a tiny house.
• Kids would probably love it, although there’s no room for them to travel in it in the cab on the road.
• It would likely not be welcomed at a luxury RV resort.
• The truck is small and does not have dual rear wheels, so it would not support much weight.
• Low branches would not be its friend.
• Gas stations with roofs over the pump would also not be its friend.
• Fast turns could be disasters due to top-heavy issues.
• The color combination, truck and house, is an artistic nightmare.
• The RV might have a future as an attraction at an RV show.
• The side mirrors look pretty wimpy.
• If it was built as a prototype for a future production model, then the designer was most likely delusional.
• If it was conceived by an ex-RV designer, then chances are excellent he was fired for incompetence.
• It would be a fun vehicle to take to a party.
• It might be challenging to remove dead bugs from the front after a long day’s drive.

Okay, now it’s your turn.

POS on POS chassis. BUT, if it works for him (her) so be it! And if they (or ANYONE else) stopped off at our campsite. I’d offer a beer and an invite to sit a spell!

As a huge Toyota fan, please note that this was built on a Toyota chassis.

Looks like exercise in poor design, across the board.

Just because you can doesn’t mean you should.

A strong cross wind will be the end of that rig and possibly any passengers.

It would make a great tree house for the grand’s. Just paint the truck green and brown to resemble a tree!

The camper’s design and engineering were developed using Artificial Intelligence.

What’s your complaints? It’s a lovely little seashore cottage, and you can move it when you want a new view (or you get an extra high tide).

Builder never put on siding
It doesn’t line up until it gets to the Windows( five or six rows up) and won’t fit in my garage

Unsafe, anywhere, anytime!

Well, it certainly demonstrates initiative, but, sadly, also a failure to consult the truck’s manual regarding cargo capacity. I am curious about the builder’s motivations in constructing the addition to the truck. Perhaps the truck no longer runs and the intent is that this is the permanent location. Alternately, perhaps it is a mobile playhouse when the grandchildren visit the farm and it is only moved from the garage/barn to the back yard. Certainly is a curious build. 🙂

I don’t want it on any road I’m on or going to be on!

Park it in the back yard and use it as a kids playhouse or a mother-in-law suite – especially if you don’t like her!

The first was also one of my thoughts, bugman.

I noticed it’s right hand drive so HOPEFULLY we don’t have to worry about running across it here in North America!

Looks like a hunting shack/deer stand to me. Probably never used over the road.

My thought exactly; it would be a great deer stand. Could stay all night and in the morning have a nice upstairs shooting spot.

It looks like something the Clampetts might have designed before they found oil on their property.

It would have to be made out of balsa wood for that little truck to handle the weight.
Anything over 5mph would rip the roof off. Probably 40% of the weight is on the front wheels. With the front framework, it would not survive a speed bump.

Vehicle service would be a nightmare!
