Airstream actually makes motorhomes.

I've seen a Corvair powered motorhome like the one in the video. It was part of a Tin Can Camper group staying on Cedar Key, Florida.

They were an interesting group they took them all over the globe. A lot of their treks were filmed and could be seen on tv. I got somewhat interested when my father bought a 6ft by 12ft fiberglass camper. He was a Methodist preacher and to get away was almost impossible if he stayed home. So he bought it from a neighbor. After church on Sunday night, he would leave for a local campground a few miles away. A church member ran the camp if a real emergency he would get ahold of dad. Hurray for the days before cell phones. My son named it the dinky. It had a sink and a small fridge. Oh yes, and a small closer.

Rounding the corners throws away storage space. I vote for square corners

I vote for camping in my backyard. getting away in a camper and then driving 200 miles then setting up 10 feet from people you don't know is not getting away from it all. headscratch

People you don't know can be interesting at times. We've met some good folks out camping.

If you're smart enough to take it apart, you darn well better be smart enough to put it back together.

I agree,Kevin , ,first of all most all campers are camping for fun to get out and away from things that are regualar daily things or just out of the house ,,so they and me are happy to be there.. My trucks have brought up a lot of conversations with others also .. and so does their trucks and campers ..

Don King took me to a bar and the sign on door said No strangers only friends you haven’t met . A bit like going camping you don’t know who you will meet

Here's one for camping in the bush. Right, TPR57C? We spent 6 months in Queensland. Is the hardware cloth screen for rocks or to keep kangaroos out? Notice it's on hinges to rotate down when in town I guess.
