So, you turn it upside down when you want to float it?

Now that's interesting. Looks like the floats on top are outriggers and would swing down from the top to stabilize.

Fill the bottom pontoons with water and it will dive like a submarine.

Should be the porch or deck. Otherwise it would be interesting getting in and out of the camper

That company has been in business for a number of years so I guess people are buying them.

If you go to YouTube and search for Travelwave 360 there are some videos of it. Interesting concept for sure.

Thats exactly what they are, they fold down electrically when you want to put on the water.

I wonder if they use a slideout stabilizer when on water!

Is that pulled with diesel or gas? 1/2, 3/4, or 1 ton? SRW or DRW? White or Red?

OK, I don't have a picture of what I saw but wish I did. Was camping at Roosevelt State Park in Mississippi and there was a guy in an old prowler parked across from me. I was outside picking up some of my gear when he decided to empty his black water tank. As he rapidly pulled the valve open, the hose flew off and well it looked like something from the movie "RV". He was able to close it rather quickly but his shoes and socks were heavily coated in unsanitary waste. Glad I was picking up and getting ready to head out, the smell was awful. So now before I open the valve, I double check everything!

That same thing happened to me when I bought my Dynasty and I was driving it back from Phoenix. I was just outside of Mountain Home, Idaho and a big wind unwravelled my main awning. As I flew down because I just bought it, I had no tools with me.
So, I had a brainy idea, I got up on the roof (almost got blown off the roof) and took my belt off my pants and bound the awning against the RV.

As I was coming back off the roof down the ladder, my pants fell down.

Got 3 horn honks before I reached the bottom rung! LOL
