Clearly they have a "place" for it, but claim it will pack up and roll and is street legal (in NZ). My guess is that a lot of SMB's get similar road time. Here in the South, there are thousands of various camping rigs that arrive new at their site and never leave. Permanent year-round private campgrounds are everywhere in the region... skirted and porched pushers that never move are commonplace. Sittin' by the same little ditch or pond year-in and year-out... at least that thing is interesting enough to make me go back a second time.

I would hate to be in it over about 40mph

Re: Yewwwww won't believe this

It is hard for me to imagine the amount of time and energy he put into building that rig. There appeared to be a high level of craftsmanship in the construction. Definitely a job well done.

Count me among those pretty amazed at the design, fabrication and final fit, finish and utility of this whole project. The most impressive bit was the bath tub--WOW!

I guess we should never complain about how long it takes to set up camp.
