"Wildly popular RV company..."...

Who? "Living Vehicle"?? From the pictures I thought it is a European company, but it is in the USA?

I just looked up some info on them. Yes, USA company.

Best known RV company no ones heard of.

Looks like they are selling European style travel trailers.

Interesting ideas.

Except for the fact there are not many places to boondock in the South of France. I also doubt you'll find the blonde tossing the salad or the DB playing with his laptop in one of the article pictures too far off the beaten path anytime soon. There are not enough Starbucks locations out there in the boonies. Where did she get the lettuce and the Croissants? Whole foods or did she grow lettuce and wheat on the RV roof?


Actually, boondocking or as it's called locally, "savage camping" is quite popular in France and any small town will have a nice bakery to get croissants.

Finding the blonde and not having the wife take issue is another story.

Be very careful using air/con condensate (or a dehumidifier). The fins are not particularly clean and tend to grow some interesting fauna that might have nasty results if you try to drink the water.

A good reverse osmosis system with proper prefiltration makes far more sense if you don't have a clean water source.

As a bonus those small towns probably sponsor classes in the finer points of fleeing, waving white flags, frying potatoe sticks, and making toast.

If so I guess that didn't pan out? Ba Da Ching.

How do you cram enough stuff worth about $300K into what is basically a 26' aluminum cargo trailer? 24kt rivets?

You don't, or can't, not even if it wipes your arse, as PButler96 so eloquently put it.

Oooo... "savage camping". Sounds much cooler than "boondocking". I need to remember that!

That's the only reason I remember it.
- Boondocking makes me think I'm a hick in bib overalls in a van down by the river.
- Savage Camping makes me think I'm Rambo and just dropped out of a tree with a bowie knife to get a deer then dragging it back to camp for dinner.
