From weirdrvs.rvtravel.com comes this unique camper built by Stephen Shives. He calls it his Mobile Mini ManCave. The sleeping area is the sleeper unit from a semi truck. No doubt it draws a lot of attention at the campground.
From http://weirdrvs.rvtravel.com comes this look at one clever RVer’s answer to boating. The website provider notes: “We are not sure what you would call this thing. We do know that it did not come off as is off any assembly line. Paul Martinez sent us this photo via Facebook.”

This RV would be a good place to be during a flood, but probably not such a good place during an earthquake. It would also not be a good place for anyone prone to sleepwalking. We just hope it’s self contained because it would be a long walk to the potty in the wee hours of the night. Our Facebook friend Paul Martinez alerted us to this photo. He doesn’t know where or when it was taken, which means we don’t know either. All we know is that’s kinda weird.

Nomadic people (Greek: nomádes, “those who let pasture herds”) are communities of people who move from one place to another, rather than settling permanently in one location. Nomad. Gypsy. Wanderer. Vagabond. Location-independent traveler. All these terms describe a person who loves variable scenery. They move from neighborhood to neighborhood, town to town, or country to country, doing what human evolution tells them to do: keep moving.
For many years RVs ( travel trailers, campers, fifth-wheesl …) have been offering a great, affordable way of sightseeing and vacationing … Plus high maintenance and gas expenses, storage space problems, minimum privacy ( if you live in RV park). Do I have to mention the whole “carbon footprint” and ” environmental impact ” those gas-guzzling monsters leave as they trail through nature?
For the most “environmentally conscious ” nomads, let me introduce you to … not exactly sure what to call them : camper bike, bike motorhome, bike trailer house?

Every surfing movie from the ’60s must have included the “Woody,” a wood-sided panel truck or surf-board toting motor vehicle. So how about a “woody motorhome”? The photo is courtesy of dirtyboy on popupportal.com.

The 1952 Space-Queen RV was way ahead of its time, which, now that we think about it, has still not arrived more than a half century later. The two-story travel trailer was built for only one year. The manufacturer, Gemco Engineering & Manufacturing of Cincinnati, did not stay in business long. The trailer was 26 feet long and eight feet wide. The center bedroom compartment raised to a height of 19 feet. The RV had a fully equipped kitchen, living room and bathroom on the first floor and two bedrooms with double beds on the second.
From Russ and Tina De Maris and their blog at http://weirdrvs.rvtravel.com comes a bit of the old and the new. A chopped 1927 Model T (we’re assuming a new engine package of some sort) and a custom built fifth-wheel. It’s said the rear-bath fiver is decorated red and white inside. Bet that’s a rough night of sleep!
Russ and Tina De Maris supplied this latest example of “Weird RVs” from their aptly named blog http://weirdrvs.rvtravel.com. What do you think?
If the traditional RV manufacturing industry suffered through the last economic downturn, how will the new thinkers fare in the future? Robert Williams, a United Kingdom designer rolls out his concept called forfreedom, that meshes a fuel-efficient auto with a not-so-traditional fifth-wheel “caravan,” as they call them across the pond. Williams’ concept not only tows along with the car (which is detachable) but it also breaks open at center, pivoting open to allow nature to flow in. Critics suggest that not only will fresh air find its way into the trailer, so will bugs. Be that as it may, it is an interesting looking affair, to say the least.
