Ground Clearance Baby... the go anywhere kind. Just look at the size of those tires. If I were single, and poor, this is all I would need... and those two chairs, but that's all. Ok, I'd need a Four Wheel Drive Petroleous Rex to pull the trailer, but thats all I would need. Except a dog, I'd need a dog for company... a small one, of course. Yes, I'd need a small long living dog like Poncho, and that's all I'd need!
What an economical "Live Anywhere" Mobile Bachelor iPad/iPod stealthy lifestyle. It even has Air Conditioning and a roof rack for my kayak, mountain bike and hang glider (if and when I take up hang gliding). It also comes with a snap-on tent for guests and/or cooking and dining in a non horizontal position.
It wouldn't surprise me if that little camper costs as much as a full size trailer, though. I'm always amazed at how the smaller stuff gets, the more it costs. Laptops are a good example, but I kinda get that. But at the grocery store, why would a can of low sodium green beans, or anything with less salt, make it more expensive? They are adding less salt; it should be cheaper.
I have a hunch that Boonie will find out that buying a fully accessorized RV Trailer will be less expensive than just a box on wheels that he can make his own. Somehow, leaving things out will throw a stick in the spokes of the manufacturer's assembly line... there will be Customizing Fees associated with not installing things he doesn't want, like a microwave, fridge, and bathtub.
This trend was driven home to my wallet the other day when the driver's side window on Sue Bee quit working. The dealer wanted something like 400 bucks for a new electric motor. Screw that; I'll go to a salvage yard. Well, the kind lady at the salvage yard didn't have the make and model I needed, but she showed me a similar one. It was like an octopus, with more wires and cable drives and hinges and brackets and pulleys than a Post Grad Erector Set. "I just need the motor!" I said, knowing I could never get the new used octopus in place and working. "This is a module," she said, "you can't buy just the motor." I asked why I couldn't just take the motor off this "module" and put it on my module. She said motors are "built in" to modules now and you can't take them apart.
It is these kinds of things that corrode the arteries of reasonable people. I felt compelled to "kill the messenger" and said, "It won't be long, will it? before we'll have to buy the entire door as a "module" when a window quits working!"
