In this thread there was a post where the cellar was in the no longer needed floor furnace. So check your coach for space between the floor and belly pan.

But this thread is just a thought exercise, not a Thor Industries marketing survey, so who cares whether any given concept is practical or how much it would cost?

Function is beauty.

Regarding themes: less is more imo. Kitch is fun but...the recent Land Yacht is sleek and rich compared to a standard models with all the appliances exposed. Elegant design for a small space. I only wish they didn't cost so much. Here's hoping I'll find a used Land Yacht reasonably priced in 15-20 years. Ya-right.

I am surprised no one has come up with a Frank Lloyd Wright trailer. Might be difficult to fit his angular vision into the rounded Airstream.

Hi, with wood trim, Yes. But with 6" high windows and his traditional low ceiling made for short people, No. Frank Lloyd Wright also didn't like closets.

pardon the drift off-topic.

If in Kansas City, the downtown airport has a Connie Museum and it is an interesting tour.

Now back on topic.

I'd love to see an off-road, boondocking edition. Composting toilet, lots of solar, battery bank, and decent ground clearance.

We'd love a King Ranch version to match our truck. The leather is beautiful.
