We saw one of those at the Railway RV Campground in Williams, AZ. It was rented by an older couple. While she said she was enjoying their trip, she also noted that every morning she wished she was in one of the larger Class Cs or a Class A.

Looks like the Basque sheepherder's wagon that we saw in the Beartooth Mountains a few years ago.

FROG BOB is trying to throw you all off course with that story of it being Basque sheepherders wagon......

It's obviously the prototype of the Hybrid version of Berkshire he can't discuss with us.

Well at least the tires are less likely to explode...among other things.

I like their use of renewable materials in the construction.

Last week we were watching something, I think it was on the Travel Channel and they were showing a company that buys and refurbs them. The one they showed was going to be a rental and I believe I saw it was worth $54k when they were done. I think the show was RV Flip or something like that.

WORTH $54K or charged $54K . I have seen the work they do, lots of it and many hours. IMO $54K to basically rebuild is a lot of monet! Better to buy a new retro camper.

That's the Shasta Flyte retro edition that was issued in 2015. Here's an original 1964 restoration of a different model -- a travel trailer with the look of a fifth wheel.

The exploding tires are a feature.

Adds excitement to the rv experience.
