It'll be a fun novelty for a few years then you're going to have to figure out what to do with it and where to store it.

Either that or you'll need a whole lot of this.

Would have been a lot cooler if the helicopter was still functional.

Finally the crappy old vans and school busses got priced out of the hipster budget?

Exactly the DIY contraption I want in front of me at speed on the freeway.

At the very least, I'd have turned it around so it was more obvious what it was as you were towing it.

We have a protected bay where I am at that had seaplanes touch and go.

But this thing crossed by once. After getting over being gobsmacked I was thinking "these balls these balls" long before Red Bull.

Weird thing I only saw this once, wonder why I imagine he got a wife and well dying is not something a mom wants for their kids. Looks cool  I would take a traditional para glider.

I mean, it's a cool idea, but it's got absolute shiat for space. It's a niche gimmick, but not a very functional camping trailer, especially since it probably weighs a motherfarking ton, with support members that don't need to be there for a camper and are just extra weight.

It's neat, but I wouldn't own it.

You also might have only seen this once because the dude crashed and burned, before even getting the chance to marry.... :-)

Looks really, REALLY fun.

I go out in the bay in the summer years ago we had a yellow submarine in the river. Alas with my luck I have not found any square grouper.

1) Get rid of the engine cowling on top. Unless it's useable space, toss it.
2) Strip the paint , and polish it off like an airstream. Maybe a clear "seal coat" to prevent oxidation.
Other then that I like it. Quite a kluge.

They're not hipsters, they're both in the military.  They're helicopter pilots.

Well....it's lightweight, thin-skinned and easily lead. So, its a Trumper Republican?

As someone who spends a lot of time in a travel trailer on job sites this is just stupid.  Looks cool as hell but stupid.  Lack of shower, toilet, fresh water tank, black water tank, gray water tank, bathroom sink, heater and AC, usable cabinets, oven, microwave, dining table, proper lighting, LCD TV, electric jacks, etc.

I have been staying in one of these and my two teen daughters came out for a week, it got small fast!
