    Colorado based Teal Campers has a modular, sub 1000 lb unit. I missed the RV show last weekend, shoulda gone to check it out. Modular, can be off loaded to make a shelter for those times when you find a fishin' hole you just don't want to leave. Empty, you can haul yer bike or quad.

    Hummm I thought I remembered reading earlier in this thread that the company that made those went under. Will dig a bit to see if I can find it.

    Did the order today. Should have it in mid-April. Actually changed my mind and went with the kitchen included. The space it takes isn't that bad, and it'll be much easier to sell that way down the road.

    Yeah, this one supposedly will be 3600ish. We shall see. But you're right, it's going to be all over that 5k number with stuff in it. *sigh*

    I agree with the resale aspect. The one I bought sat for 2 1/2 years because it didn't have all the bells and whistles. But that's why I got it at the price I did. I'll be slowly installing what I need. You'll like it. I'm happy with mine so far.

    These Livin Lites are selling like hotcakes, apparently. Supposedly if you order now you're at a three month wait and probably more. Some major dealer just ordered 160 units and anything submitted now is after that.

    Or my dealer lied to close the deal fast. But I've been dragging my feet for too long and was completely ready to get this thing ordered today anyway, so doesn't matter to me. They don't seem like the type to lie, but...

    I don't want to distract from this thread, but here is a post from a few years back with some pics. The van has all of the goodies (heater, class 3 frame mounted hitch, awning, carpets, wheels, airbags, inverter, 2nd battery, Euro H4's, interior lights, etc.) It has been garaged its whole life and still has the original undercoating. It needs a cleaning and a couple of small things fixed (rear door struts, driver's window switch needs cleaning, maybe a couple other small things I'll find when I clean it). Synthetic in the tranny and engine for the last 45K miles. I'll cry when it goes. It's given my wife and I (and subsequently our kids) unmatched travels in the west. We have a map with pins all over it marking our travels. After I clean and shine it I'll be asking low 20's.

    There have been some great family conversations
    In a 7' x 10' space
    Imagine renting a 70sqft room anywhere
    And having a grand time

    That is neat, but from what I gather the starting price is $12k USD. :eek1

    Also, while it is nice to have something that folds down like that, I didn't see too much about how much you can put inside when folded down, or how accessible the inside is when folded down. In short, would it only be useful when folded up? Or could you use it as a canopy shell when folded down.

    Also, I didn't see if it was available in different sizes - like for the 6+ foot bed on my Toyota vs. a full sized bed. The website didn't have much info.
