The power to weight ratio can't be much worse than a 240d. There's a lot of small Toyota motorhomes with the 22r engine. My 307d motorhome was a 21 ft long Class A and it had the 616NA. It's not a gas tank so it's not as dangerous as a gas tank would be.
A pop-top camper probably would have been more appropriate, but I'm guessing the guy just used whatever happened to be available.

I bet the first time you exit and smash your head on the camper is self correcting. I'll pass.

It looks like it tried to back up through a house and got stuck.


A real mean California highway patrol man (and California has lots of them, don't ask me how I know) could include "Failure to display rear license plate lamp" if he decided he was going to write him the "Full Boat"

Its probably the nicest driving truck camper out there.

I would probably never buy it but I love the fact that someone had the gumption to do it.

The only things I really don't like about it is the fuel tank behind the back seat and the caulking smeared all over the sides. If it were mine, I'd have used a split tank system in the "trunk" wells.

Notice the subtle modification to the "SixPac" name?
