    Russ Moen built a one-of-a-kind show-stopper. The ultimate RV. His creation, which he baptized the Tourliner, started life as a 1954 Chevrolet COE but became much more than a resto-modded truck. Once he had the cab, Moen wanted to build a trailer from scratch, to resemble the Bowlus Road Chief from the 30s.

    Impressive, but very dark inside with no windows. Not for me!

    I'd love one (The Chevy), but I'd never be able to come to terms with the fuel consumption :whistle:

    Not at all. They are fabulous and cheap accommodation if the owner can live with the size and running costs.

    R-V`s. IMHO. are Motor-home Marmite? Some (like me) love them, others cannot see the attraction. All same Football (soccer) V`s Rugby.?

    Also a bit like Sex. overrated? but don`t knock what you never tried!.

    Well I love it. Suits my personality. Why bother going out in something that no one knows you have been out or not.
