If the competition is doing this--
and a handy man in his backyard shop can do this -----

Why should Airstream still only be doing this ?????---

The coolest thing I've ever seen was an original VW Bug with a tow ball mounted in the center of its reinforced roof. From that ball, it pulled a goose neck trailer that was sculpted out to allow the Bug to pivot beneath it, and push or pull it while driving in either forward or reverse. It was 100% "jack-knife" proof.

Wish I could find that video.

Murphy Bed

It is always good to check out what the competition is doing. Some good ideas. I like those curved cabinet doors, and the Murphy bed near the end of the video.

This one is cool. The "Decoliner". We saw it last January in Quartzsite, AZ.

This one reportedly did not leak! Thats what good roof drainage and UV protection does for you.

Notice the rear observation deck and the front entrance. Are those things going to come back?

Rear Observation Deck

Wonder why this idea never stuck with the motorhome builders?

Seems like it would create some new marketing opportunities.

They have those now. Toy haulers and other SOB have the back that folds down and legs that pop out for a back porch. It is a big selling point for family SOBs
