This is an interesting challenge with modern business in general. How much capital it takes to start a business and then keep it viable.


One analogy I can think of is food trucks. I have a few locations where I buy from taco trucks. Food that is so good it brings a tear to my eye. And cheap. Amazing quality for the price, amazing quality period.


Contrast that with the new "food trucks" that are out there. That same $1.50 taco is now $3.95. And those "lobster rolls" are $19 that are on a piece of bread smaller than a piece of Wonder.


Why the diff? The food sure as h is not better. But to buy/lease that new truck, put big, bold graphics on it and get all the equipment - plus some great recipes and skill all take more money than that taco truck that has been selling on the same corner for 20 years.


Imagine something as specialized as an RV and making a profitable business model out of it. I hear materials are so expensive they have to make RVs out of chicken feathers now!

I think it's pretty cool, although I would have made every effort to have the center gull wing hinge area lift up as well as the ends...that would allow walking upright throughout the entire trailer.


I can think of at least one way to do this....
