    Yes, a double in the back and a twin in the front.

    Near perfect Jeremy. Drop it off in your new 'hood and go fish. Trailer's waiting when you're done, with enough room to cook, eat and sleep. Set up a tarp outside for lounging around camp and your set. What more does a guy need?
    I've been admiring those "tear drop" style trailers too. Easy tows for a small truck.

    Don't go ga-ga over those classic VW Westfalias either! If you really want to check them out, look at GoWesty's website at their vans for sale. I saw a full bells&whistles Syncro-their 4WD version-on the site for $128,000!! They got it, too! Hell, mine's a steal at 14 grand!

    Mark, just to "one up you", the ultimate would be the Sikorsky camper I saw once on the telly. Can't find a link right now but as a cargo chopper on floats, there were few amenities it didn't have. Somewhere North of 2M. That was 10 years ago at least so its likely out of my range today.

    You can get the "Zodiac/outboard/electric loading crane option for the above.

    I saw this one on Hwy 2 a couple weeks ago. It is owned by a German couple who shipped it over for a 4 months N. American trip. It was pretty awesome! It's a stock rig from an Austrian RV company, Action Mobil.

    I have a sportsmobile that I use for fishing a fair amount. It is a lot of money to have tied up in a vehicle (and I bought mine used) and there are lots of other options out there that are pretty nice - the Boler, small airstreams, pop up campers, and some of the new offroad teardrops (moby1) are pretty cool for far less money. That being said having a diesel, 4x4 rig that has solar, hot water, fridge, furnace etc. all in one package is pretty nice for steelhead fishing up in BC or fishing some of the lakes that are hard to get to up there. I tend to use it a fair amount for that. Here's a pic from a couple weekends ago at silver creek. Fishing was good with a really good pmd hatch coming off in the morning. Nice mix of browns and rainbows caught. cheers.

    The mileage on the Roadtrek would be good if you got the BlueTEC ultra clean fuel efficient CRD turbo diesel V6 engine in it. That's a Mercedes plant in a Sprinter body.

    My brother has a Sportsmobile. It's a nifty rig, but I want just a bit more room. That being said, I wish the Chinook Baja was still made. I couldn't afford one but that would be just the ticket (minus the gawdawful paint job).
