This may be the biggest travel trailer you’ll ever see!

39

Now here’s an RV with room to roam, not just on the roads but inside the RV! We posted this photo 10 years ago, but somehow the page disappeared — until now, that is.

RVtravel.com reader Jim Warren spotted this huge travel trailer at the Jefferson County Fairgrounds in Port Townsend, Washington. Unfortunately, he did not furnish any photos of the interior.

Now that the circulation of RV Travel is much larger, maybe the owner will spot this and send some photos.

Chances are you won’t come across a trailer, motorhome or other RV bigger than this one!

Oh, one observation: This “rig” better stay away from low bridges or tunnels! And check out the clearance on the bottom. Not much there!

The trailer may have air suspension and it may have dumped the bags hence sitting so low.

This looks to be photoshopped. Ground clearance while towing? I don’t think so…..

It’s incredibly easy to “bottom out” a vehicle that has low ground clearance. The longer the vehicle, the more likely it will be for it to bottom out. I had a GPS unit years ago that warned if I was on a street where low ground clearance could be a problem (crossing train tracks are a common trap for vehicles with low ground clearance). Perhaps “mf” has enough ground clearance so that it is never a problem for him. For RV newbies, this is a “gotcha” they really should be aware of. I’ve seen low hanging plumbing (dump pipes) that could easily be damaged due to how they’re positioned.

This rig was/is owned by John and Rebecca Pooley. John at the time worked for Belina Interiors in Tacoma Washington, which does yacht interiors and built this rig from the ground up. The upper cupola area slides down for travel. I believe they now live in Kentucky. Fun fact: at the time they lived in Eatonville Wa, they had 10 children all living with them, two boys slept in the truck sleeper everyone else in the RV.

Wow, I thanks that’s the nicest 5th-wheel I’ve ever seen.

I also forgot to list Spacecraft that manufactures large RV “travel trailers” and 5th wheels. This is the company that constructed the Ultimate RV Kitchen listed in my prior post.

This might be a large RV, but I think that you will find this one that celebrity Will Smith owns even larger. Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-V0WulksI0s It is 1,200-square-feet with a second story,

Also, a few months ago, this one pulled up next to us in an RV park. We got to tour the inside. The gourmet kitchen at the front of the travel trailer was huge. Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TxJSSzIaITU&t=2s

I’m guessing there is another center section horizontal slide on the opposite side as well. The lower side panels of the top section would have to fold in to allow the top section to come down to make “normal” 14’ vertical clearance, sides would have to tuck in to max 8.5’ and shrink nose to tail to make 53’ max length requirements. That would pose some interesting weatherproofing challenges. 😳

As RVs get larger and larger I cant help but think. We are just putting our stuff on wheels. The whole point of RVing for me is to free oneself from the house full of stuff at home. And enjoy some time unencumbered by the tasks that we must do to maintain that “stuff “

But then, some families actually live full time in them, so they downsized considerably and don’t owe taxes and mortgage, except land tax if they have land of their own for a home base. Others are totally free flying.
I’m working on figuring a way to live the simplest on the road, with a vehicle to live in using less or no gas. I do hope to pull a trailer though. Soon there will be mostly electric cars, but I don’t plan to buy new, so it will be awhile before I do that. Also, I don’t know how long it will be before they have large vehicles like large, xlong high top vans or smallish RV’s that are electric. I will be a newbie once I find a vehicle. I will travel with 2 large dogs-another thing to figure out. I want to be off grid w/solar. It’s a quandrum. Any realistic ideas will be appreciated, thanks!

I’m surprised we haven’t seen a custom tractor/trailer RV. A think a trailer box would be an ideal platform to build upon.

There are many on YouTube. Look up the one with Architect builds trailer after remodeling Airstream. He may have worked for Airstream, don’t remember. It is aluminum. Definitely is something you can live in, unbelievably nice! I may come back with the link. I’ve seen many online, this is my favorite. Has a fold down deck. Has an island. Nice shower. Nice bedroom. Elevator extra bed up over table. Well thought out, as you’d expect from an Architect. They will build it how you want it.

This is obviously a custom made project. The arched front slide-out, among several other things, shows real craftsmanship.

I think the second floor slides down, also I imagine he has air bags to lift trailer when rolling.

I’d say the tallest portion looks like it’s a “pop-up” room. Thereby good for the highway when lowered. All in all, quite the job. The builder is certainly to be complimented.

This looks more like one of the current fad of tiny houses.
Travel Trailer no, fifth wheel yes.
It appears to have solar panels on the roof and the center raised section also go down for transport. Also the back wall may retract (look at the gap in the lower skirting). Having been seen at a fair I would suspect that it belongs to a fair circuit working family. Also of interest is the picnic table painted to match the trailer. We rely on the campground to have a picnic table or we just do without. I would hate to have to load and unload that every time I set up camp.

This home is NOT intended for camping or traveling around. It is on wheels in case you want to move your home from one property to another, as this family of 12 did. It is costly to move a home like this, but worth it if only moved a few times.
This home was at the fair for the sole purpose to show it to people. The builder may have given them a deal on the price, to let him take it around to show what they can build for you, as an advertisement.

I went back & looked. They said unfortunately they don’t have pictures. If we contact the builder, maybe get pictures that way. Might put copy of picture on google search to pull it up, including builder.

If you haven’t seen this yet, I think you will enjoy it. Personally I would design interior to be more natural & a little rustic contemporary than Will Smith’s. I always look at builds & designs expecting to mentally customize it to my own liking, of course.

I think that section that people think would keep it from clearing under bridges slides down. Or at least it looks like it would

It says at the top of the comments; A builder built it. Also there is a link to look at the pictures of it. I’m so surprised there are so many people making remarks w/o reading the comments first. A comment at the top also says the top slides down.

If that trailer is built the way I think it is, that TOP DORMER SECTION is a raised section and when traveling it drops down to form a single lower level roof the height of the main roof. Also, not only does the side slide aft of the entry door pull in, but I would bet that the rear of this trailer is on air bags and is lowered in this picture for leveling. Some one has a lot of imagination as well as the time and resources to built a unique trailer.

Looks to me like the top slides up/down to fix height issue.

Looks like the top is a slide down to allow for clearance. Hoping someone sends in some interior photos.

Any photographs of double decker buses converted to motor homes? How about the city transit buses with the flexible material between the front and rear sections? Naturally all the trees in the campground will have to be cut down so these monsters can visit.

The monsters aren’t allowed in campgrounds, except maybe the desert where there aren’t trees. This home is not intended for traveling, but rather for relocating your home if you need to. It cost at least $1200-2500 plus more to move it to another location if you hire someone to do so. They’d better have enough insurance to cover it.

I saw a double decker bendy bus that is not in the U.S. on YouTube. An individual who did not make it a home, but I believe it is offices. It has the bendy and a second car/bus connected. It is nothing to look at, except to give you an idea of what you’d want to do with it. It is for sale. Key words; Bendy bus. There might be others to see also on YouTube. There are MANY fun, nice, unusual homes on YouTube! 🤗
