Odd Motorhomes .....

I know, I know....
We're all Airstreamers here, but thought maybe I'd brighten someone's day with this post.
Maybe when gas hits $10 a gallon, this might be a possibility???
Thanks, Derek

Over the top, for sure! I wouldn't mind having the $$$ to afford one, but wouldn't spend it on a piece of wretched excess like that!

The little Argosy Mohos are also high on the cute factor.

These little campers where based on 60's(50's???) Saab 2 cycle 3 cylinder engine cars. Somewhere in this forum I posted a quick YouTube video of one moving and it is just too cute! Not sure how it would do in the mountains.....

How about the UltraVan?

Have always seen these around growing up. Few and far between nowadays. Very similar to Airstream construction, aluminum spaceframe. A few photos, think I know of a YouTube video as well.....

Since the toad is actually tucked underneath, then "over the top" in more ways than one!

And my own offering: THE BUS, worldgreatest MOTORHOME is for sale A double-decker, hinged in the middle, listed in the 1997 Guiness Book of World's Records as the largest street-legal motohome.

But there is no storage space on this unit?????? You have to have room to carry your tools.

While traveling overland in Africa many years ago, came across this German touring bus - with trailer. Those little windows are where the bus tourists slept!
