What was the line from Dr. Strangelove?

Slim Pickins: "Well, I've been ta three county fairs, two state fairs and a World's fair, and that's the dumbest thing I ever heard!"

Would be better to make a camper into a balloon basket for a hot air ballon, easier too.

Designed with the weekend recreationalist in mind, the Premier PRO Weekender Barn is surprisingly affordable and can be finished on the interior by the customer to create a more liveable space. This building includes a steel service door, two 3'x3' windows, LP TechShield radiant barrier roof decking, 30-Year Owens Corning dimensional shingles, a front porch with overhang and can accommodate any of our standard options.
That's cool! It'd probably be nicer than our actual cabin too.
Thing is, if I'm going to drop $5-8k on something, I'll probably just build a garage up there, which I've wanted to do for some time. I do have a rickety shed that houses my 66 Ford F-100, but I'd like something nicer and more stable. Perhaps with a livable loft...

I like that idea too. We do have a Tiny House thread.

Glancing at the middle two pics I thought I was going to have to punt your post to the marijuana thread.

I wonder what makes the rear door 22 400 lbs more than the front door 22?

It looks to have a tub where the front door one doesn't - can't see anything else major though

so i went and looked at the camper.
its a 22' rear door argosy
argosy was a line of campers made by air stream,
basically a painted airstream and they did some trial stuff.

it was pretty neat, worth the price @ $3k
needed some work, hadn't been used in a few years. structurally and mechanically really good. mainly a good cleaning, paint would polish up nice
rreally liked the floor plan, rear bath front cabin

like this but no air unit (bonus)

So did ya get it?!

I really like Airstreams & Argosys of that size but for the fact you can't tote a bike/ATV in them.
