I think these new rigs are really cool and I know the next generation of TCer is all about getting away and boondocking and I'm all in...With that said they all look about as comfortable as sitting on a five gallon bucket turned over. Just having some fun... What do you think?

They won't have much money left over after they buy Airstream's new offroad version of the Interstate class B:

Agreed!!! They don't even look like a nice spot to relax and enjoy the scenery, more like an inner city condo.

To each their own of course, but that is big bucks for not a lot of space and I can see some regret once the adventure is over and the occupants are ready to settle in. I've been truck camping since I was 25 five I'm 59 next week, and no matter what it gets tight after a while and if it rains for a day or two, Insanity can rear it's ugly head. Two little dogs have to go out and they need a place to sleep. If it's raining their soaked and stink etc... I'm looking at a picture of my wife on my desk when I was 25.... OK maybe I could do it! LOL
