Sportsmobile's Big Brother


Since I allready have a sportsmobile I guess I need to find something else to lust after. I think this might just be it.

While the power "stairs" might sound like a neat idea, it kinda eliminates being able to use them while in parking lots, rest stops, and where you might need to camp near trees and bushes. It also means that you have to wait for them to go up or down every time you want to go in and out. So it scores high on the "cool feature" challenge but fails miserably on the "practical" side...

If I had to spend 10 minutes everytime I forgot the salt, then a spoon, then something else... well... and can you imagine the mosquitos? Not just the ones that eat you while holding the switch, but the ones that come in while opening and closing.

I believe there is a walkthru from the cab of the truck to the camper. Nonetheless the points about the door design are valid. Maybe I can order mine with a conventional door.
