Toyota Vantech

Surely our domestic coach builders have concerns about the competition from the Far East... Wonder how long it will be until we start seeing these in the U.S.?

Cute rig!

Looks like a Class 'C' that got caught between a couple 18 wheelers and had the squeeze put on it.

5 berth? They'd have to be VERY good friends!

I like the shower room being able to be used as a drying room--good for a pair of skiers perhaps.

You see these small MHs in Europe a lot where the roads are tight (just watch a Tour de France race and look at them all parked along the edge of the roads), but I don't think they would be popular here with our large open highways.

Close friends would not begin to describe the accomodations.

For the right circumstances this could be a really fun rig to have, but I'm not ready to trade just yet!

They would never go over here.....the awning and door on the wrong side! Heck! Even the steering wheel's on the wrong side. I guess you could always pull into your campsite backwards?????

It is cute, though.

When gas hits $7 per gallon we all will be reminiscencing about the time we could drive our big old MHs anywhere we liked.

Similar to Europe and Asia where gas is $7 per gallon. Everyone will be driving those cute little RVs.

The trend towards smaller vehicles is here now. Within 10 years our vehicles will change dramatically. Let's hope we really don't have to drive those little things. Where I'm I going to put all my junk!

I bet there are a lot of hunters here that would be interested in one.

As I remember, the first Hondas and Toyotas were little cars that "nobody would buy". Now look where they are. GM, Ford, and Daimler Chrysler are all trying to be like them. Maybe this is the first salvo by Toyota. If I were American Motorhome builders, I'd keep a very close eye on Toyota. They could become a major factor in the motorhome market just like they did in the automobile market and are trying to get there in the light truck market.

Happy New Year to Everyone!!!!
