    I'm thinking about buying this but I can't find any info on it at all on the internet. There's no ID markings on it anywhere.

    I saw that on Marketplace a few days ago and was intrigued. I’ve never seen anything like it, but it’s a brilliant concept with the outdoor kitchen. I actually took screenshots and almost posted them on here to see if anyone else had any ideas about what it might be. Don’t worry, I’m not in the market right now ;) Please share any photos and info you may be able to gather.

    I don't know what it is, but it's cool.
    That would be great to tow with a Jeep or small car.

    That is cool looking, but no clue on what it is.

    It's almost a rooftop tent on a trailer, but better.

    Ask the owner what the heck it is! It looks ultra-light… shoot, even my Miata might could pull that.

    I could probably tow that with my 69 Beetle, if I could find a hitch for a Beetle.

    My state doesn't title trailers unless they are commercial.

    Oh. Em. Gee. Being able to turn the entire TV around under the gooseneck is something I'd never have believed if I hadn't seen that video.

    I can get my hands on a Beetle of that vintage easily… but no. I got enough trouble.

    Neato! It looks like someone took a sawzall and some fancy fiberglass work to a vintage 13' Burro or Scamp and maybe converted it to a PUP? I'm wondering because the shepherd's pole and lift system look homemade. Has anyone else seen a piston-assist fold down where the supports end up outside the camper when down? I can't figure out what the rails in the rear are for. Does something slide into or out of this? People on fiberglassrv.com are doing all sorts of crazy mods and refurbs like that.

    It looks homemade to me. A friend of mine built his own tear-drop in his garage. With the right tools and skills, a homemade job can be made to look very professional. That's the impression I get of the original post.

    If it’s homemade, it’s extremely well done. When you zoom in on the fiberglass between the counter and the tent all of the corners are perfect and the different contours are crisp. It may have some DIY mods done to it like the pistons rather than springs most external lifts used, but I think it had to have come out of a mold.
