SERIOUSLY funky.

I managed to find a site that had more pictures, including a picture of it all folded up for travel. It mentions "hot air heating" but doesn't say anything about AC... not as important in the Netherlands as it is in Texas, I guess.

Seems like everything I wanted the base camp to be! Now how do I get one of these to the states?

Pretty cool, but it is almost as heavy as the Minuet.

$42,000 - wow.

Well I guess someone at THOR must be doing the pricing. If it were $15K I'd be on it like skunk on smell. A perfect weekender or boondocker. With that certain something that doesn't ooze "Coleman".

That scary number may include VAT. If so, it's still well over $30k just for the price of the unit. Apparently without AC.

Works out to 35k or so w/o VAT (for the teak trimmed model) I'd like to see some pictures of it "buttoned up" with the tent up. Is that back deck enclosed you think? Probably not enough floor space for two great Danes I suppose...
