Holy smokes! This is one very weird RV

Reader Don Vlack sent this photo. “Here’s an interesting looking setup I saw in Florida,” he wrote. “I did not have a chance to talk to the owner.”

All we can say is, Wow! We’ve never seen anything like this on the back of a truck (or anywhere). Is it roadworthy? What do you think? Or better yet, do you know anything about this very unusual RV?

I’m amazed at the thought that went into his design, although after the cost of the dually truck and everything else, he could have bought a 26-30’ Motorhome brand new ( My 2020 Coachmen cost me $57k out the door)

How can the driver see properly out of the front windshield?

I talk to him at a post office one day it’s a truck camper under neath. He said he modified this himself.

Is that a double King or triple Queen bed over the cab? And the porch out back must be for the kids or perhaps the folks are vertically challenged? At any rate this thing must be made out of a thin aluminum skin without insulation or wood panel inside otherwise the weight would have truck springs flattened. With the length of the stuff sticking out the front it can’t be legal in very many places. I just know I would hate to have to drive it.

As of January 2020, the diamond plate monster is alive and well. I took a pic of it at Walmart- Fort Myers Fl. It appears to be succumbing to gravity a bit. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. (I wasn’t beholding) 😋

I so enjoyed looking at the picture of rig for awhile. My compliments to the designer/fabricator.

I would say that this rig would be highly unstable. Center of gravity, both length and height. I would think that it would be pulled over by police or state officers the first time on the road. I bet it is also over the gross vehicle weight also.

Unstable and Center of Gravity issues were the first thing that came to mind. He might not be overweight though. I would not do this!

By the way the pickup is looking to be sitting at a normal level, I bet the suspension is not overloaded at all. The construction of the camper part looks like it is made out of aluminum as well. The Ford E-350-450 duallies have impressive weight capabilities. But unstable yes, I will agree. It’s like a sailboat in the wind I bet.

I have worked on aluminum trailers all my life. It may not be near as heavy as it appears.

My late father was quite the inventor and built his own RVs. This one looks like something he would have built!

1) Hope that truck is a dually.

2) Hope the truck has heavy duty air bags.

3) Drive SLOW.

There is no way that unit is legal to drive on the road!

OK, why not ?, Looks like a 450 chassis to me when I blow up the picture

Why not? As long as it is lower than 13’6″ in height, and less than 40 ft long, ( to be legal in the eastern portion of the United States), it is fine.
