new camper?

If you aren't bothered with claustrophobia, I suppose it would work.

Our neighbors decided they'd take the plunge into RVing with a locally converted Toyota van similar to the Mercedes mentioned by Lloyd above. They've been out a few times and said they enjoyed the experience. We had our Reflection in the driveway for a couple days cleaning it up and a couple mods. They came up to take a look at our 5er. First thing out of the neighbor's mouth when stepping inside was "Oh s--t! We may have made a mistake.

When I put a fold-down "bed" in the back of our then-new 1973 VW Bus with a cooler, we had it better than this! But I didn't have such a deluxe coffee pot! This is not even a Class B, it's a fold-down with a fancy kitchen cupboard! Yes, our hobby is pretty diverse! LOL

When I checked out the link for the Mercedes I thought it would probably make a good vehicle for tailgating, but pretty useless for anything else.

Hmmm
Nobody has an opinion on the electric RV with the Wankel rotary backup?

Electric option is a farce. Only get less that 50 miles at best then engine kicks into charge it.
Not a fan of going pure electric to "save" the world.
Lithium mines need oil based machines to mine them.

The mines are extremely large and devastate the landscape.

Recycling batteries is almost impossible

Planning 1 hour charge periods for trips extends the length of your travel day

Typical lithium mining

Now here's one that might be more to the liking of some who need more room and "other" amenities.

Guess what Mark. The way I read that article, you are in luck. The 1,480-hp Bugatti Chiron comes with . It's part of the deal.


Have at it.

To expand on Marks comments...Once your battery gets to the point it can not be recharged, the cost to replace the battery is so high it is cheeper to buy a new vehicle...I have a picture of acres of electric government cars outside Paris that proves this is true...
