This is one heck of a beauty. It doesn't even look like a truck camper.

Reminds me of the song “I’ll take a stairway to heaven…”. Long climb. Then three more steps up to the bed. Too much white inside IMO.

We toured it while at the TCA rally. Super nice guy, with a lot of experience. We liked how he neatly designed " wedding cake" type steps to the sleeping area.

Mike, I see it's a prototype and am wondering did the person who had it at the rally throw a price out? I bet if it isn't over 100 it's darn close. I didn't see where the site has a weight to it either. Not assuming you know, just curious. Thanks

Looks like the dinette is about the same length as mine. A longer dinette would be a good change. Also, kind of weird that it doesn't look like they increased storage.

Some specs and what they think are the key features would be nice to read.

He didn't even have a name for it yet. I'm guessing he has just getting the final features dialed in before he goes into production. He primarily builds tiny homes and possibly there could be chances to utilize components from homes to campers. The ceiling was over 7' tall and He had a legit Furion cooktop/oven and I thought a 12v ac unit. I asked him about supply chain problems and he got bit with his hot water heater. He designed the space and plumbing needs only to be told he was out of luck and the bigger manufacturers were the priority at the time.

its a throw back to the old 70's frame mounted truck campers. my buddy just picked up a 1971 gmc 1 ton with one and it looks like a motor home till you relize ou cant get into the unit from the truck.
