The trend, fully realized by M$ and pursued by some Linux "desktop"
40-foot Winnebago, sleeps 6, his'n'hers bicycles and motocross
bikes strapped to the back, Toyota Tercel in tow, followed by an
trailered cabin cruiser, also in tow; all hookups plus satellite TV
dish on the roof.
My ideal, no less top-heavy I guess, is more like:
Utility service truck -- the kind where all the side panels are
toolbox doors -- with a small machine shop inside, winch and PTO
fore and aft, cherry picker boom, big diesel powerplant in tow
with integral generator, welder and compressor.
Eventually, I might fall to the seduction of moving to a 40' semi rig
with room for more machine tools, hauled by a Peterbuilt with a
sleeper cab. But not a Winnebago and no boat, thanks. :-)
