    Different for sure, and I know I have never seen one before and does not look like I would want to own one either.

    Looks cool , but also looks like a lot more to worry about instance wise.

    All the inconvenience of moving parts, mixed with cramped interior space and lack of natural light!

    Wow, first time I've seen one and now that I have, I understand why. Too bad they didn't share pics of
    what it looks like in its towing form. Matter of fact, I'm not 100% clear on what you truly gain, lol.

    1970s I think. They have a following. They made both slide in truck campers and towables like that. I have seen them over the years, but never saw one in person. It just pops open like that to provide an additional bed area. At the time they were something since the dinette didn't have to be collapsed for a bed unless you really needed it, but they were heavy.

    It looks like a precurser to slides. Different but not as thought out as the FoldnRoll to give as.much bang for the buck.

    I kept seeing the same one on CL in Anoka/chisago/Ramsey... Dude kept saying "needs finishing", asks for big $$$ cash then vanished... Then said wife decided to sell poof gone again. Then says "doesn't need to sell and we love it."

    I took it as: "I have a low mileage Yugo that I might keep, but needs some attention, but forget it I'll just keep it" sorta speak.

    Looks like Batwing parking to me...

    HAHA! I really thought it was the same rig, just different post. They are two different rigs...both in your homeland!

    PS - I did see one in use up at Burlington Bay in Two Harbors last month. I don't think I took a pic, as I usually shy away from rig pics of others unless I can help it [:D]

    This is awesome. I’ve seen the Amerigo truck campers before that have the swing out bed on the back, but never realized they made travel trailers too.
