A floating motor home?

I would love to have this for a few days just to watch people's reaction at the local boat ramp.

The Terra Winds was at a big RV show in Atlanta in the '03-05 time frame. My wife & I walked through it there & spent some time talking to the couple who built it. They owned a company that built very specialized amphibious vehicles and this was their brain child.

Their goal was to market these things & build them on an "as ordered" basis. I'm not aware of more than this original being built. It was modified a couple of times. When we saw it there was a big square dive platform/patio that lowered in the rear. It was also outfitted with outriggers that took up most of the basement compartment area and extended out to add stability.

The interior was absolutely first class and looked more yacht like than motorhome. I believe it was Cat powered.

Convenient when roads and towns flood from rain and over flowing rivers. Also allows one to cut across the lake instead of going around it. You could call it one big Duck (WWII).
Anti sway bars are not going to help much on the water. Still I can only imagine the nightmares of responding to the wakes of fast boats, strong winds and white caps blowing across the lake, lubrication of the axles and chassis, rust maintenance of the undercarriage, washing the RV to get ride of lake oils/fish odors, inspections for mussels, and meeting State and Fed boating safety requirements, i.e. Carrying oars, life jackets, anchor, inspection stickers, etc.
