    I think that if I had $450,000- I'd prefer something that would go faster than 55 mph....

    Looks similar to the orange one for sale on the GXV website. The orange GXV one has more miles and costs about $100K more. So this may be a "good deal." Now if I can only find $450K.

    "The Orange One" has a much nicer interior and appears to have better quality materials, KCT windows for instance compared to standard black aluminum RV windows.

    Agreed! It looks like most of the cabin is unfinished plywood,

    It must have started in Austrailia with the cabin door on the left.

    A pretty weak ad. Ya, the most important thing is it is 16 feet tall when the roof is extended. Wow, my neighbors will be impressed, please take my money.

    Looks like someone figured since GXV can sell a lifting roof U500 camper for $560k then theirs must be a bargain at $449,995.

    How anyone could think that this homebuilt could approach that valuation baffles me.
