Carrying your toad!!!

It is said that one of the compelling reasons for chosing a Trailer or Fifth-wheel over a Class A or C RV is the fact that you have a detachable vehicle for travelling about when not carrying around your home.

Perhaps this Class A has rewritten the book on having a toad without the bother of a hitch and extra length and limited maneuverability.

looks like that thing has about 4 inches of ground clearance.
Not too many places to go that won't scrape the bottom off of it!

Not The First.....

...................MoHo that can carry a car or motorcycle. Travel Supreme uses the Freightliner mid-engine diesel chassis in one of their models that can carry a Mini Cooper in the 'trunk', aka the space where the rear diesel engine usually goes. i have a cllient with one.

Very interesting but a real PIA to do anything on the engine...like oil changes!!

I'm guessing that it has airbags in order to gain ground clearance after loading the toad. I'm a diehard airstreamer, but that is too cool!! IF they ever build one that will hold a '55 Nomad, I may have to switch teams. LOL

Very Cool... I guess this is what the high end camper is looking for when it comes to lawn chairs. Just roll out a Mercedes from the the basement storage.

This is hardly a new idea. In the '80's we were going to rent a motorhome to make a fishing trip to Sweden from our station in Germany. One of the potentials was a French-built MH that carried a small Citroen in a rear compartment. It might have been named a Clou, but don't rely on my memory for that. It was too darn big for that trip.
regards

The person(s) that can afford this rig doesn't have to worry about changing the oil!
