Guaranteed to be the talk of the campground when you pull in.

Just watch out for those low tree limbs.

MPG of this rig is questionable.

I love this so much. That bedroom View! And no neighbors looking in.

3 speed auto right in there with 3 in the tree.

So far away from my 10 speed in the F150.

Way cool, but looks like it might be top-heavy.

I guess they didn't see a problem with the name, Kamp King Koaches

Reminds me of the Simpsons Krusty Komedy Klassic

If both ma and pa managed to also be on the rear deck they'd be so crowded that they'd have to be holding on to each other, not a drink. A staged unrealistic photo if there ever was one.

But, what a riot. Love it even though it's about the most impractical RV I've ever seen.

The current bid seems reasonable at $30K USD. I would have thought that the truck alone (if in excellent condition) would be worth close to that.
