WOW Factor RV!

Anybody see Will Smith's RV on HGTV yesterday? 53', double decker and over 1,000 sq feet. And he hauls a workout gym in a trailer!

I saw it close up. I work for a restoration company and it was on it's way to a new destination when it caught fire due to failed brakes. The interior wasn't that bad, but had to be gutted because of smoke infiltration. The main floor was living quarters and the popup was entertainment area accessed by a spiral staircase. It had 7 flat screen tv's. I never saw it finished, but man it was sure something to see even in the condition I saw it in.

At 53' it is no longer an RV. A mobile home maybe but RV it is not!

You are right - for upper deck. Four slides on first floor.

I just finished reading the brochure. I don't think Pres O. is this safe. WOW not over yet - read this.

Anderson Mobile Estates, Inc.
Introduces: the bullet & bomb proof

Anderson Mobile Estates, Inc. has designed The Cocoon.
The Cocoon is built on the back of the tractor that transports your Anderson Mobile Estate offering you a secure way to travel with or
without your Anderson Mobile Estate.
The Cocoon is a module that offers you the comfort during travel that you would expect from any Vehicle Designed by Anderson with
the satisfaction of knowing you are protected from those who may seek to harm you and/or your family.
As it is necessary to have a vehicle to pull your Anderson Mobile Estate, why not have this unit offer you the comfort and piece of
mind knowing you have a safe house close by and a comfortable way to travel to your destination.
Within the Cocoon you have essentially a mini motorhome offering you in motion Television viewing in the comfort of large
overstuffed chairs and or couches. Within the Cocoon you have 8 foot of head room, a kitchen area, bar area, fold down bunks for
comfortable sleeping and anything you dream or desire can be built into the Cocoon Module.
The Cocoon can remain near you at all times therefore offering you a safe refuge that you can be transported to quickly in case of
an emergency.
When you are using your Anderson Mobile Estate the cocoon can be used to house support staff such as chiefs, servers, security
personnel and etc. while you enjoy the comfort of your Anderson Mobile Estate. Optionally The Cocoon can be a sealed unit offering
you safe refuge in the event of a Bio hazard or chemical attack. With adequate (8 hours or more) air supply giving you ample time to
find a safe haven and Out of harms way.

Dave 5942, great pictures, brought back a lot of memories. Lived in Palmer, AK. for 12 years and been to most of the places you went....If you go back make sure you go th McCarthy and tour the Defunct Copper Mine. Also, if you like to River Raft do the Matanuska River Lions Head raft and Six Mile Raft, awesome adventure. I really miss Alaska but the Winters finally got to me. I am planning a trip back to Palmer, summer of 2013, the good Lord willing....Thanks again for sharing your adventure.

That couple is doing a lot of traveling. We looked up their website - they just won a contest sponsored by Rand McNally and USA Today for the best report on a small town. Won $10000 and a new Saab. Theur website is www.gonewiththewynns.com It is an interesting site.
