Very unique. Somebody originally dropped some serious coin on that.

Would love to see a modern interpretation of that concept. Don't want to own it, just see it.

That setup just doesn't seem that practical or useful. Definitely cool and unique though.

I think practical and useful flew out the window about 20 grand ago.....

Actually, it is practical and useful if you're 4' tall.

Maybe Willy Wonka owned it, and the trailer was for his Umpa Lumpa posse?

It kinda reminds me of this, and if you haven't watched this you should!

That's one of the coolest semi-custom combo builds I've ever seen, I like it.

The trailer has room to stand up.

A nice option to a huge motorhome for extended travel in retirement, say 1-2 years criss-crossing north America, where you could set up in an RV park, then use the van for shorter trips and still have a smaller self contained van.
