Take a look at this newly designed Australian Class A, with a one piece, molded carbon fiber body rather than siding-on-frame constructions. It's the Aussie Swagman. Aussie is also a boat manufacturer and probably carries over their hull molding expertise to coach body design. The Swagman uses a Roadmaster chassis and Cummins diesel engine.

Maybe Aussie and Monaco are sharing technologies and we might see something like it here some day? But that carbon fiber body has got to be mucho dinero!!!

Looks nice, but did you notice that the steering wheel and the entry door were on the WRONG side on every one of them....

I saw some news release recently that the Swagman was going to be built in China and then imported in to the US.

I think it's the reverse coriolis effect in the Southern hemisphere that causes that.
