You have something there! Maybe you are supposed to tow it with your Amphicar.

I have the feeling that this is going to have quite a large price tag on it. I wonder what it will weigh? It does look cool. I like some of the ideas. I think they got some of the ideas from Lexus.

Thumbs down

I saw this and thought, that LCD window will make an airstream wrap window sound downright cheap.

It touts being keyless, but what to do when you get to the storage and the batteries are flat and the biometric fingerprint entry thing doesn't work? Also, things like the motorized light fixture look too brittle to survive long in a towing environment. Control everything by Ipad? I don't have or want one, but if I did, can this rig recharge it? If you drop the Ipad in the creek with everything open and deployed, are you stuck? Decades of repairing cars for a living has made me pessimistic about bells and whistles.

This looks like the richest thing in glamping or tailgating.
It seems I love the mountains and deserts more than my friends do. I sure miss them!

Just as a side note, if you're handy, you can add a ton of tech to your rig with aftermarket stuff. deal extreme is a place I ordered a bunch of LED lights, but they have all kinds of monitors and sensors and LED dimmers. You could engineer a lot into a trailer if you really wanted to, but since tech changes so fast, you'd have a hard time replacing everything.

I love tech as well, but I don't want to have to find my phone to access an app to turn the lights on.

I just thought of a name for this...

The engineers could drop a motor into it, add a couple of wheels, steering and headlights that track where you are driving and they could call it a "Motorhome."

Love it! The great thing about such concepts, is that elements may become available to the general market. Self-leveling variable-height air suspension is current technology that I would love on our Airstream. Power windows - yes! Our Airstream windows are nearly impossible to operate by someone with arm or hand disability such as my spouse.

Concept vehicles are always more glitzy than the production version.

I like some of the ideas in there, and the look, but I agree with the idea of keeping things simple.
