Interesting concept. I would think driving the front half to market would not be as easy as a tow vehicle.

I'd rather be boon docking in the desert.

It is just a loooong motorhome. I don't see where they can say the front portion is a 'tow vehicle' per say. "Honey, I am running to town for some beer", probably would start a spat. Don't ya think!

I'm a step ahead of 'em! I bought a 23' Born Free moho on an E450 chassis to tow a 25' Bigfoot trailer. I'm having some custom hitch work done, and then I'll show photos!

Its just a sneaky way to get around length restrictions. Rent two 25 ft sites and yer good t'go.

It looks pretty complicated to un-dock the two sections. Kind of like the space shuttle and the Intl Space Station.

And what if you go to town for coffee and leave mama asleep in the back? It's a long fall if she decides to use the front bathroom.

I'll admit, it's a great concept, but the reason, from what I understand, most folks have a toad is to get around easily after setting up camp. Even with this setup, you'd still need to level it out and get it all back to they way it needed to be, and with this split system, you add that they have to line up. To me, that defeats the purpose. I've seen many a MoHoer out there without toads and on uneven or poorly graded spots. Each time they went out, they had to come back and set up camp all over again. This proposed system will no doubt add to that frustration, outside of the unique and cool factor IMHO.

Computers manufactured by companies such as IBM, Compaq and millions of others are by far the most popular with about 70 million machines in use worldwide. Macintosh fans note that cockroaches are far more numerous than humans and that numbers alone do not denote a higher life form. -NY Times 11/91
