Not that I have seen. It's a really cool idea though but the only problem is with the floorplan design inside. Totally uninspired to me. For something so expensive you would think they would do something different inside and out. I do like the veranda idea though....

We walked through it at the Hershey RV Show in 2008. It's really a cool idea but the price tag is beyond my means unless I hit the lottery. It is a very beautiful unit inside.

While we were there at Hershey we tried to get in but there was too maney people waiting to see this rig. It is out of my price range as most Class A's are but It is nice Idea.
Did anyone see the 5th wheel that had the roof top lounge, it was out a few years ago. I have not seen it at any other RV shows since then?
The word was at the time that they were going to make some Travel Trails the same way, but have not seen any of those.

We saw the Roof Top Lounge at Timonium before we bought the Georgetown, probably Spring 2006. They were promoting it for NASCAR fans. It was really neat but the loss of space inside for the stairs wasn't a big selling point. My concern would be the seals as well as the surface on top when it gets wet. There was also a Class A with a similar set up we saw but not sure if it was at Timonium or Hershey.

King of the Road fivers used to have a slide out DECK that was under the frame so you could have your own dry place for a chair

the veranda is to me thinking, WHY rv you can never leave your rig ???

I was at a county fair once where this carney had a HUGE otr type trailer it had a big porch on the entire length , the trailer had few windows and numerous slides that looked like they were built like an aircraft carrier

I prefer the class A with the built in garage. Saw one in an ad that could garage a BMW Mini. Now that is cool!!

That's a Country Coach. VERY nice rig. Close to $500 - $750 K maybe? I like the idea of the lounge, but the bummer is it looks like it took the place of a full size slide out that would have increased the interior living space.
Newmar had something similar on their London Aire 5th wheels. Basically just a pull out landing as part of the step assembly.
Very cool.

Here is another roof top patio coach made by Airstream;

I actually have seen this one in person and it is really cool. It would be great for races and tailgating.

That is grasping at straws for sales IMO. What a waste of precious space.

I couldn't agree with you more.

The only ones buying this are the ones who have everything and are looking for a reason to buy more.

Here is a 2006 that I've been watching on Craigslist.

Class A Deal

skydeck looks like a mosquito buffet

too many mosquitoes around here for the balcony or skydeck to be appealing to me.

That's nice. Just wish they could have added a couple more photos.
