I wonder if the Polaris Slingshot would fit in a cargo trailer to be pulled behind an Interstate.

Maybe the new motor home on a Sprinter chassis will resemble the Classic motor homes?
One can wish...

That's what I was sort of hoping also!

I have tried to talk my wife into an Interstate, but every time we have looked at them - and their competitors - at RV shows, she just insists that they are too small for us (even though we too are pretty small!).

Maybe the new model might be just enough larger to swing the deal!

We have friends with a Coachmen C-class RV built on a Sprinter chassis. It's really cute, has automatic levelers they added after-market, and they love it. So, an Airstream version could be pretty exciting. I look forward to seeing it, though we're pretty happy with our 27FB.

Proof that you should never believe any woman who says size doesn't matter— bigger is always better! That's true of RVs, diamonds, bank accounts, and other things.

Haha!

Probably right!

I just have always had a fascination with compact things that are well made, do what they are supposed to do, and have everything you really need in small space!

I guess it is for the same reason that I have a bit of a fascination with side arms, although I have an aversion to killing things - and the Mrs would never have one in the house anyway - even if we were allowed up here where we live!

But to me, they are another perfect example of a small purpose made precision item!

Motorcycles are good in that respect too! I am allowed one of those!

I was very happy with our little VW Westphalia camper that seemed big enough for my wife and I and two daughters oh so many years ago!

What happened that we now must have a 31 ft of trailer for just the two of us!!??

Brian.

Mmmm, maybe this is why at one time I "needed" a 44' Moho, all for myself. Thanks, Protagonist

SBU Muscle Shoals 08.28.2013-7 by Tommie Lauer, on Flickr

I saw a reference to the Polaris Slingshot, which is IMO nothing even resembling a motorcycle, but with a car engine/transmission, side by side seating, and not spectacular performance, I believe the Can Am Spyder where the rider is in the wind, this is what every older rider can find fun.

As I am only giving the Interstate consideration, but want to stick with thew AS line to maintain presence in WBCCI, I have lots of time to think about all this.

Great input by everyone.

Well, since time is on your side, you'll also be able to chose from the new models that are supposedly headed our way later this year. If you need a little more room than a straight Sprinter, maybe that new Sprinter-based C-class that's been all the rumor would be just the ticket.

Bottom line, it's your life and your money, go have fun with both of them! We look forward to reading about your further adventures, in any case.

An Interstate would be cool as a family car/daily driver.
Drive it to work or shopping or visiting people who generally don't have groceries-
Have a kitchen and bathroom with you everywhere you go-
Take your lunch break at work in it-
It gets 19 mpg.

New moho

If AS brings out a new moho based upon a small truck chassis, it would need a couple years of debugging before purchase. Also, if the Interstate is priced at about $160,000 with options, the new moho most likely would be higher.

I think it will be interesting to see what AS does with the Nest Caravan, maybe this will be the $35,000 AS many folks are waiting for.

Anyway, for the next year I will continue in my current AS, happy with the latest modifications. (I have moved the base attachment point out into the room about 6" so I can use the recliner without detaching from the base locking plate on the floor.)
