    What these manufacturers need to do is get with Ikea,a group of mothers, and the Japanese.....now that group will have a king size bed that folds into a 2 foot by 2 foot space, more storage than an oil tanker, and is so light weight they will tell you to laod lots and lots of gear in it, so the wind won't flip it over on the highway! Pups always lack storage, and utitlize every bit of space in the pup as well as folding things up out and away when not in use. Ever see some of those Japanese apartments...four rooms in one! Now that is utitlizing space. Oh and of course...LOW, LOW prices...like under $8000, so more people can afford them.

    Call me crazy, but i kinda like it. Not the price or the weight, but the Star Trek kind of feel and I love being different than everybody else at the CG. Imagine how many friends you would make at the CG when you pull in with that thing in tow.

    I don't care for it. Looks to me as if it were in a wreck and someone tried to put it back together. [:(O]

    It's ugly, but you guys have missed the point. It's designed like a stealth plane to have low radar signatures. [:D] That way I won't get pulled over by the cops for doing 60mph on the freeway. [LOL]

    I'd buy a TrailManor or a hybrid, but not that ugly little cramped thing.

    OK, I'm in the minority here; but, I think it's kinda cool.

    Kind of a stealth teardrop space capsule sort of thing. Like a previous poster said, the angular look reminds me of a stealth plane. The interior reminds me of a teardrop camper where it's not really intended for a lot of living space. The efficient use of space and functionality remind me of a space capsule or the space station. Lots of attachment points where things can be strapped to the walls and ceiling for storage.

    Looks like a very sturdy aluminum build.

    I don't think I would buy one, but it could be a pretty good camper for some.
