It is a CGI ( computer generated image )

I had to laugh at the computer generated compact that was towing it.
Beautiful design BUT, price? weight???????.

Actually, if you think in terms of scale (the trailer being tall enough to stand upright inside) that tow vehicle would have to be in the Cayenne/GL/Touareg size range, not unreasonable.

I didn't see much room for cooking, though. That odd-shaped area on the curbside toward the rear MIGHT contain a tiny galley area, but it's not clear from the plan or any of the other images. Leave it to a fat man to think first about the galley...

Reminds me of a cross between a Basecamp and EB

Oh, a Basecamp on steroids. Not something I would choose.

The walls at angles is a great idea, kinda like the floor plan, but it really looks like a T@B-xl, which only demos where made.
