RV with helipad, hanger and hotub

So, who's buying one of these? This is what I'd call a toy hauler.

Neat concept, doesn't seem like it would be very practical though. I doubt many RV parks would allow take off and landing, which means mainly boondocking. Assuming they have had to utilize the basement for everything that would normally go on the roof, so less storage.

I'd have fun with it until the novelty wore off then I'd want my normally laid out RV and a trailer for the aircraft

Might work in Australia in the back country but FAA would have some issues with it here, plus the height seems too tall for US roads. Notice he didn't operate it so concept is all it is. Plus hope those tanks are big enough to fill that hot tub and keep it as he said "filled with young girls"

Maybe a Saudi Prince would be interested

Stupid ideas imo

Supposedly, the top opens up, the helicopter rotates around somehow, and goes down into the coach for transport. I assume those rails fold down too.

I agree, not practical. However, though not a NASCAR fan myself, those folks love in-field parking and being able to get up high to see more of the race. I thought the stairs leading to a nice roof deck might actual appeal to some of those folks.

WOW! At first I thought that was a gag, but no, it's for real!

I would like to see more access to roofs and usage of that wasted space. More superstructure would be needed to handle weight of people and things like bbq grills etc... But it would make maintenance easier and give some more space for daily usage. Can you imagine having a get together on the roof to watch fireworks or bbq a good meal etc... Folding rails and beefed up structure with a nice access set up seems to be a good option for the future of RV manufacturing. Being of the vertically challenged at 5'7" I could sacrifice a little height in the MH for such amenities

The couch is at the max of 10 or 11 feet way from the TV. I'm not sure the 75" screen is large enough

I was thinking the same thing. That's not even like sitting in the front row at a theater, that's like sitting on the lip of stage and watching an iMax movie.

WOW talk about a D-Bag Badge on wheels. All they did was take some over priced things with plugs and put them in a hollowed out Itasca body. I understand that it is a prototype but if the quality of the build is anything reflecting of the current driver area they will never sell one. *That is the only build quality thing you can see clearly in the video

A few years ago in Australia, we saw a coach pulling a trailer with a helicopter on it.
