I can't even wrap my mind around six people in a Sprinter...


Unless they're just using it as a point A to point B vehicle, but we intend to live in it for a week at a time...

Sth like that should easily fit two People and two Dogs (It´s a german Company but there is 100% an American Version of that thing too).

@Steffen

Thank you, this is really impressive. I didn't know Hymer had this layout. I think I've only seen one Hymer in person and the layout was really strange. I need to take a look at this one in person.

My main concern is we'd have to climb over the dogs.

So far, this one is my favorite (pending seeing it at a show).

This is my wife's idea of the ideal RV:



There is about a zero percent chance of me driving that motherfucker down the road (I'm already a nervous driver).

This was my proposed compromise



My question for anyone that has spent a lot of time living (not just commuting) in an RV would be

1) How important is space for a couple homebodies?
2) How often do you need to dump the tanks (I like the idea of boondocking vs staying at a campground)?
3) Are there any specific areas to look at to determine build quality?

I'm relatively ok with a limited amount of space because I spent most of my life in NYC, but I really don't like the idea of tripping over the dogs. Keep in mind, my dogs are pretty massive, and they like to sleep in the bed with us.

In a perfect world where I would go full retard: https://earthroamer.com/

My main issue with this would be that the dogs would not be able to get up to the bed to sleep with us. That and it's over half a million USD.

Those Earthroamers look intersting, a view Weeks Back a RV based on a MAN KAT 8x8 overtook me on the Autobahn in Bavaria, this thing is possibly the most Insane way of Land Travel I´ve seen in Person so far:

I've seen a couple videos of RVs like that. They're closer related to tanks than vans. People drive around the planet (including the mountains of Afghanistan) with them.

Doesn't look like the Hymer ML-T is offered in the US Catalog. I'm going to ask them if they intend to bring it stateside and if it'll be at a show. I know Hymer has a cult following in the EU, they've historically not has much distribution on my side of the pond.

I vastly prefer the cartridge toilets (in theory) over black tanks. Jody can't wrap her head around why I would prefer to dump a suitcase full of crap, but I really am not hot on the idea of firing off a tank of poop through a tube.

By the time I realised I needed a few yards of Cone Mills Natural Indigo fabric, there was nothing left in the White Oak Shop or with Pacific Blue Denim.

Do any of you know sellers (or jobbers) from whom I can get a few yards of this fabric? I am specifically looking for fabric because I don't need any denim jackets or jeans this year.

Call me paranoid, but are there any known health risks associated with synthetic indigo? I love natural indigo because I believe it is healthier and fades slower than synthetic indigo. Because if I don't get the Natural Indigo fabric, I will settle for the regular selvedge fabric from Cone Mills available at Pacific Blue.

As always, would appreciate any answer for these questions.

Thanks,
Sreeni

Considering about 99.999% (or probably greater) jeans are made from denim dyed with synthetic indigo, I doubt there are any known health risks

Ideally yes but a Hammer and some precisely placed force should do the Job too, usually with Buttons like this you get a "Tool" that assists you with the direction.
