I just saw a few of these yesterday ...... I want one! :D

www.conquerorcampers.com

The website isn't too great so it's hard to tell how cool they are... they fold all out into a very complete mess kitchen; and 2-story tents fold out on top and beside them when you set up camp. Here's what comes with the compact version; the regular has even more stuff. The regular trailer tent is a 4-6 person on the top story and 2-4 person ground level with two entrances. Lots of thought went into them in the little things - the hitch is high to match lifted vehicles, water tanks are low for center of gravity on the trail, etc.
-------------------------

$10k :eek:

However, the trade between South Africa and the US got screwed up - don't know if it was political, economical, or both - and what is here is all that will be here. There's about four dozen of these in the US right now still to sell and I have a feeling prices may drop as 2005 goes on until they sell. I may get to take one for a test drive to Moab this year just for advertising/promotional purposes :thumbsup: :D

Stay tuned later this year :bounce:
