Thanks for the link, technology is just amazing these days. It's so hard to believe all the things that your cel phone will do. I'm hoping that motor homes and cars start showing the same kind of progress in the near future. The demand is certainly there.

There was an article in FMCA magazine a few months ago about motor homes of the future. We won't be buying another RV until there are major advances in technology.

Thanks for the link.

I'm sure something like that will draw a following, but for me no thanks. I'd much rather have a full trailer or 5er for what I like to do.

Yup, that's pretty much what it is "Back to the Future"

Although I think the graphic presentation is pretty sweet it would seem the price tag is a little high for something like this

The packing and unpacking would take so long that I wouldn't have any time left for camping.

If it's like most modern motor homes you'll just have to push a few buttons then step back and let it do it's thing. I'm sure this is a concept vehicle we'll never see in production but it's interesting to look at.


What we will likely see in hopefully the near future are hybrid diesels that will get 20 mph, and eliminating the need for a generator. Incinerator toilets eliminating black water tanks. On board treatment plants eliminating gray water tanks. Can you just imagine not having to dump the holding tanks! Motor homes that are close to 75 feet long looking much like city busses with the flex in the middle.

All of these things are possible today. It's just a matter of size and cost. Technology is making everything smaller and costs are coming down. It's going to be very exciting to see what RV's look like in five years. Just look at your Cel phone.

Eh, I'll stick with old school. I went old for a reason, simplicity. I had enough of that type of camping back when I camped with my half ton truck and a topper.

Nice concept, too euro for my tastes though. Music was beyond annoying. It was downright scary.

Thanks for that link- I spent YEARS playing around with vintage volkswagens and camper buses which is what this thing is definitely derived from...very interesting.

Looks like a small plane. If it flys I will buy it.
