He built his first out of a horse trailer, and " outfitted it with satellite TV, air conditioning, refrigerator, microwave, king sized bed, water tank and heater, shower and a toilet. " That one got destroyed by Hurricane Irene, so this model is his "Son of a Buggy."

Again, it's 16' long but I made it a foot taller to make room for tankage under the floor. It's a standard heavy duty cargo hauler from Haulmark. I had a couple new goals in mind for it: I wanted it to use the battery and power management technology that we're developing at my company, Hybrid Propulsion; I wanted more water storage so we could travel for a couple weeks without having to find a water source.
