I think the only window is on the door. Wonder if I'd be clastrophobic inside always wanting to look outside...?

Ohh yeah; try pulling THAT rig into your typical campground space! Other than that, the big question has got to be WHY? But then again, maybe that's why he's unloading this yellow (NOT pink) elephant. Way too big to be practical.

Gary

Do you think spending time inside would make a person constantly wanting to look outside through potential windows? Like some kind of natural instinct since we are not moles who live underground in darkness.

Anyone ever spend much time in such a place like one those military missle silos that are underground or submarines? What are the long term psychological effects of living in such an area with minimum outdoor light?

Mr Dutchman,

There is a side door on each side. A cargo door over a house type door which has a 2 x 2' window. Small, but better than nothing I guess?

Good point, 'Dog, this is not the well-illuminated environment I have in mind when I go camping, that is if I could find a space for such a monstrosity. What a POS.....

Gary,

You have to admit, that if it was cold, wet, dark, miserable, rainy weather, it would be a good place to step inside, turn on the lights, TV, cook some food, take a shower, go to sleep... It does have some good qualities. It is shelter, and it is movable. It beats being outside or in a cave.

The kitchen looks spacious and has lots of cabinets...

Put a tranlucent roof on it, some windows...and it would make a nice retreat.
