A molded monocoque rv of a totally different style

This was in Paul's feed this morning.

The company is based in Italy, 2 or 3 hours from his cousins.

It's a lovely design, with some great features  (heated floors! Pull down bed! And, look at the kitchen cabinets!) that i really like.

I saw another video made by a guy who was 6'2",  who could actually stand in the small but well designed marine bath shower. 

It's very small, but very pricey. 90k British pounds 

Is available in the USA, but I have no idea of us price.

I saw that too, and I requested a brochure and USA price list. Unfortunately the FWD Promaster chassis is pretty lame IMHO, possibly picked to lower the out-the-door price. If they started building on the Transit with its excellent safety features, available AWD and powerful engine, that would be way better for US customers. But a driven rear axle really complicates the layout of all the stuff underneath. I wonder how high the bed is, it seems like a bit of a climb when it is dropped down.

That is a very complete video tour, unfortunately they don’t talk about winter capability, the tanks hang off the truck frame and appear to be fully exposed. However on the company website they do show a camper covered in snow. But all its tanks may be dry 😜

One thing I definitely hate is the rear fiberglass storage compartment in place of a bumper. That would get trashed within a month, and it would be a very expensive repair. A stout bumper like on an Ollie is needed.

They have other campers sold in Europe,  on their usa website, "coming soon "

I saw the low hanging drain line. 

This is more if a European camper, narrow for city streets. Probably not narrow enough for some of the places we've driven in Italy...

But, oh, it's beautiful. 

The bed is actually  an inch wider than the one in our Elite.  

And, I  love the table .

If I  just wanted a really lovely design to go campground to campground,  or driveway to driveway, this could fill the bill.

We need 4 x 4.

Here is the brochure they sent me. Water tanks are insulated and heated. House battery is a single lithium 100 AH.

I think the single 100 ah is enough for many people.  I'm sure others would disagree.

125k is probably above the price of a new Elite, plus new  capable TV.

Other minuses. No screen door. No ac, unless added. (Many European campers do not include ac, to stay beneath the weight limits.)

IF I were travel camping alone, camp ground to campground,  I  think I'd find this easy to deal with.

It looks really cool.  But No payload no towing cap. Fwd. just another grocery getter at best.

Way back in the day, we used a molded fiberglass class c, modified, as a demonstration vehicle for business machines. Born free is no longer in business,  sadly. 

This could fill the gap bornfree left, for some people.

Those specs are listed in the brochure, I don’t recall the numbers, they were in kg.
