    You are of course correct in your logic, but I do not think you represent the target market of Unicat/Action Mobil!

    The fact that you don't see why you would do it doesn't mean it's not worth it (man hours, RD, etc).

    Getting things smaller and fitting them in tight spaces never has been cheap in any industry. I'm not saying they are worth every penny, just that your taste or financial disposition doesn't factor in the toatl cost of those machines.

    I'm curious as to this opinion. While a person can certainly do it in lesser rigs (at risk of life and limb), who is it that is sailing the world in a modern sailboat that costs significantly less than, say $250k?

In my opinion, most of the people who buy those rigs will ever actually go anywhere except national parks. Instead, spend $3000 on a basic truck, $10,000 (max) getting it sorted out and spend the other $100,000 on your round the world trip.
    Tell me about your RTW trip...
