I understand there's even a tire pressure gauge in there. Very useful for RVers.

Wink Mine's bigger than yours

I lived and camped in Europe during the '70's and was amazed at the "convertible" camping gear available all over Europe. Tents that had no end -- you could buy extra rooms of various sizes and heights to expand your existing basic tent. Furniture that openned into ever larger configurations. Tables that expanded to include more shevles, drawers, etc. All similar to the "Swiss box" idea. That was 30 years ago and I've never seen camping items like that in the US. I own a 2012 Roo that expands with fold out beds and a slide, but the accessories available here have never matched what you could find in Europe. No offense to US companies using Chinese factories, but the Europeans' lack of land area per country forced them to think "compact" and that created items like the "Swiss box".

I was so tempted to ask that, but I didn't want to stir the gray water in the pot

Actually, the base cost (minus the cookware, tableware, sleeping bags, porta-poti, etc) is 8,630 Swiss francs. That is $9,479.62!!! Shipping is not included. Check it out at swissroombox.com.

right, I left out a zero when I posted my comment. I guess I cannot wrap my head around anyone spending that much. That is more than i have paid for my pop-ups!!

Yes, it is expensive!

When I saw the woman demonstrating the shower and then brushing her teeth, I too thought about the gray water. Did anyone notice they were out in the middle of nowhere and not using a campground or occupying a campsite that would be used the next day (or later the same day) by a different group of people?

Never mind the 'gray' water (and the price)...I'll bet you would spend the entire weekend pouring over the instruction manual while trying to find, configure and repack stuff!! I like cool things like that, but I'm afraid that would push me over the edge! Nice find though

When I saw her taking a shower, the last thing I was thinking about was the grey water!

This is very cool but the separate sleeping bags have to go

Really cool! But at just about half the price of my 32' TT, i'd say it's a bit pricey. And I guarantee it takes forever to figure out how everything gets back in the same spot you put it in. Not good for someone with borderline OCD!
