Video: Building the first 3-D printed RV

7

Here, from CTV News in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada, is a report about the building of the world’s first 3-D printed RV. It’s 13-feet high and weighs 600 pounds, and is made entirely of plastic. It was created (er. . . printed) with the largest 3-D printer in North America. The inventor hopes to bring the trailer to the market by the end of the year.

Wait till the tree huggers get a hold of this guy. An all plastic camper, that’s cause for at least 2 more degrees of global warming, oops climate change I meant.

I’m currently driving a 2013 Ford F150 4×4, I have both a weight distributing hitch AND a sway control bar and I still feel my 26ft Minnie Plus behind me. Like dragging it behind me.

This is the third time I’ve tried to load this video and failed.

Sorry, Jeff. I can still see it — it’s hard to tell what to fix when I don’t have the problem you do. Here’s a link to the CTV story page which has the video in it — maybe that will work for those of you who are having trouble. We apologize for the inconvenience. —Diane at RVtravel.com

I think we’ve fixed it, Ray. Sorry. When I checked it last night, and today, it worked for me so I didn’t know it needed to be fixed. Greg Illes, one of our long-time bloggers, was good enough to send me a “working” link when he discovered the video didn’t work for him. If you still have a problem, please let me know. (I apologize for the ad at the beginning — that’s how it’s set up.) —Diane at RVtravel.com

Developer? designer? Not inventor.
