The vintage exterior is stunning; but they should have the prow behind the vehicle for less drag. Still a beautiful TT.

And with the starting price at only 190k. I wonder if I will ever get to see one in person?

If it was brown it would be a bolus. At those prices it will even have Airstream devotees choking.

$190k for a small TT? I think some companies just pull prices out of thin air with no thought as to real worth. I don’t care how it’s made or with what or by whom or what the back story is. that is just a ridiculous price! Even at $90k it would still be a lot!
I don’t see anything about it that screams $100k, let alone $200k

Regardless of price, the Bowlus is still pretty cool.

haha, yea, the price and how many HP is the exotic engine? Any carbon fiber structural members? I dont think adding some shiny metal is going to add $140, 000 worth of value...

This is the first trailer in over 70 years that is aerodynamic at least. Cool to see the rear shaped correctly. I wonder how this improves mpg's?

If you can buy one, mpg won't matter.

Two weeks of battery and 19 gallons of fresh water? I suppose an electric awning wouldn't fit with the aerodynamic styling but the one shown? I had a better awning on my old pop up. Four people? I don't think so. Impressive looking, particularly the interior. $190K? You can get a really functional TT for about a third of that. Add solar and the expensive batteries if you like. And, you'd have realistic FW capacity and something other than a cassette toilet.
