Latest in ultra lightweight motorhomes

While traveling for my job today we came across the latest in ultra light weight motorhomes. What it lacks in aesthetics and amenities it makes up with fuel savings.

I was thinking maybe it is a stealth RV and they are working the bugs out of the cloaking device

Sadly, it looks like it was left parked in the neighborhood I grew up in.

I kinda like the "open air " concept.

Simple explanation here - awaiting installation of "full-wall" slides on both sides, as well as a rear slide.

They figured with all the warranty problems it's better to send the owner the Rv in pieces so it gets put together right

That's what happens when you drive faster than 65 mph.

That's the largest golf cart I have ever seen! It would be great for hauling loads that need sun protection or a large group of people who are touring a small area.

The pictured motor home also has the distinct advantage of not being bothered too much by a passing 18 wheeler.

This would be ideal for a panoramic view at the ocean or the Grand Canyon!

The new Coachster motor home is so easy to drive. No blind spots!

The saddest part - no awning. . .so no hold down brackets or poles.

I suspect OC and Turbs will see this, realize what a no awning rv would do to their businesses, and put a stop to the production of any future units in the new super light weight line.

Honey, here is your ring back. Please don't drop it in the toilet again. I had a heck of a time getting it out.

The awning poles are needed to hold up the roof
