We’ll take a wild guess and say this is the longest RV ever made. If you know differently, please tell us, and send a photo, too.
At first glance, we concluded a few things about this RV.
•It will not do well on tight turns.
•It will fit in perhaps one percent of back-in campsites, and maybe two percent of pull-through sites.
•It will not fit in 98% of American’s driveways.
•It will get stuck in 77% of all dips in the road. We mean. . . wow! Check out that overhang!
Okay, reality check: We were wrong about what we concluded so fast when first seeing the photo. The trailer actually retracts while not on the road. When fully extended it’s 55 feet long. But going down the road, the front and back thirds pull into the center, making the actual tow length a modest 20 feet. The RV, we are told, was designed in 1934 by a Frenchman to accommodate an entire family.
All that said, what we believe is most certainly true is that the RV never made it into production. No surprise there.
