Seen this parked out front of local store for a few weeks, Had to stop and take some pics. No details, virtually permanent so I guess this would be a class C but interesting.

Can that possibly be legal? I sure would not want to be driving behind it on a windy day.

Got to ask; what makes one think it's not 'legal'?

Strange? Different? sure, but....

I'm not an engineer but, the design looks like the faster it goes the more the camper will lift and try to pull away from the vehicle roof.
It is interesting.

I wonder how much reinforcement had to be done to keep that from happening.

I would think it would be a class B since the main part of the vehicle still has the original sides and all. It is just a high top B. :-)
