TWO SNAILS (plus a dog and a dragon)

The Motorhome of Motorhomes

This article first appeared elsewhere on March 2nd, 2008. What was true then is most likely not true today when I reposted it here.

Mr Snail remains deep in his vehicle research phase. It is not just brochures, he is subscribed to a wide range of forums as well. He has asked the question “If money was no object, which vehicle would you buy?” A respondent pointed him at this.  Mr Snail’s response: “It’s bigger than our house!” Well, maybe not, but it is forty-five feet long… with shower and two baths and, hey, the co-pilot seat does have a powered footrest. And what about the built in vacuuming system, eh? Do check out the gallery. I particularly favour the bedroom. I think this vehicle may belong to Peter Stringfellow, or Rod Stewart, perhaps. 

 Beastly, is it not? Maybe that is why the price is $666,000 

 I shall continue to hold this model up as the exemplar of the argument that the larger/costlier these vehicles are, the more tasteless they become. “Overstuffed” I think I said the other day. Yes, quite. Ugh.

Comment: Times have not changed - we looked at a Hymer currently for sale today and the upholstery drew a gasp from me - like a knocking shop boudoir, I said.
