Saw a video of it the other day. $450k...!!

If I had the cash I'd rather buy a unicat Rv convention.

$450K won't get you a Unicat. More like $1.5M for a loaded one.

If you had that sort of budget you could use a Toyota platform, load it full of features, luxuries and gadgets and have a big chunk of change left to afford the touring lifestyle.

It would also be way more reliable and easier to source parts.

New, sure.

But you can get a decent (loaded) used one with under 50k miles for very close to $450k.

This one is up now for $500k. Very clean and well put together.

If you want one to put a bike in the back why not spend 4-7k and get a stripped down military one.
