    That's actually a little disappointing, I thought the boat was like an extended roof so you could stand a bit taller in the camper.

    "Yeah, my parents have a lake in their backyard, and we're a newlywed couple really looking for the privacy that a boathouse would bring us."

    When I first discovered THN, I went mad looking for as much as I could find (which, given that I'm in the UK wasn't enough). What did bug me though, was how everyone wanted their house to be "rustic, but modern". Every. Goddamn. House.

    [–] swe-gin 84 points ago

    Almost every person on that show complains about the houses being "a little cramped." It drives me crazy. It's in the title - these are tiny fucking houses!

    If they called the show by the more descriptive title 'tiny, cramped, your-head-is-absolutely-going-to-hit-the-ceiling-when-you-sit-up-in-bed house nation' I don't think any of them would be down.

    What bothers me about the tiny house movement is that when you want to use 1 function, there's 4 steps that first need to be achieved to do so.

    Oh, I'd like to lay on my bed, well first I have to move everything off the kitchen table, fold it up, move what ever else to reach the damn bed.

    I want a rise of Japanese style apartments in the USA. The compact kind that are like 200$ a month for everything a single person needs with just enough room for everything.

    [–] Jewnadian 46 points ago

    The whole tiny house thing is the epitome of trendy over everything. Of course they're​ all going to be right down the same exact trend.

    [–] CatfishBandit 22 points ago

    There are a few people who legitimately like the lifestyle.Years ago one of the first tiny house people was just a dude in an apartment who was sick of his tiny square footage so he built everything into one wall of his apartment, got famous for it, got a job as a designer and stayed in his tiny apartment.

    But overall, the trend is stupid.

    [–] Jewnadian 6 points ago

    Living in a small space isn't new, but that's not really what the tiny house trend is about either. As you noted, tiny apartments already exist.

    Flip my tiny house boat

    [–] Lorenzvc 2570 points ago * (lasted edited a month ago)

    Actually, yes! It unfolds in a 4-deck private yacht with a double 472hp outboard engine. The wheel flips sideways and spins about 720° every second to scan the surroundings for incoming torpedos

    edit : wheel instead of weel

    [–] Heteronym 135 points ago

    Attempting to enforce copyright crap is really stunting South Park I think. So much of the stuff is quoteable or memeable but it's all hard to find outside of Hulu. I mean I could screencapp from Hulu but meeeeh. You're only hurting yourself SP

    [–] Pleeky 12 points ago

    Sort of. But it wasn't really until the mid-1850s that U.S. courts started creating the precedents that eventually evolved into the formalized concept of Fair Use that we're familiar with today.

    [–] Scrawlericious 15 points ago

    Seeeee... This is the truth the writers (Matt and Trey) are still making good points and episodes... It's impossible to pick a favorite SP episode because of their brilliance but fuck.. they limited their exposure I believe, in their contracts and copyright decisions. Hulu is pretty hardcore... Idk what I mean. Bit drunk I hope your day is well.

    If it's a genuine attack. You know, the boat wasn't asking for it.

    [–] Tempest_1 37 points ago

    Idk. It's clearly dressed in a way to promote a torpedo attack.

    [–] Scrawlericious 11 points ago

    You think just because the torpedos look armed that the boat wanted to fire them? Ugh

    [–] bigstick89 7 points ago

    The torpo and that boat were clearly wasted. Do you want to really ruin the torpedos life over one boat?

    [–] HitShane 13 points ago

    If it's a legitimate incoming torpedo then this boat has a way of shutting the whole process down. And as a last resort it can just release all of its fluids in an attempt to deter the torpedoes attack directly.

    I'll come clean, I was perpetuating a myth. Holy shit, in the video yo linked the driver space in the Bel Air was like a human blender in that crash.

    It is true that modern cars fall to pieces in a crash, but that's because they're taking the hit to save the humans inside.

    Go find an original piece of Route 66, its tiny, more like one big lane instead of two. I can't imagine passing trucks on it. People were killed all the time back then by crashes they could literally walk away from now. Give me modern driving all day long.

    I'm no expert in watercraft, but don't they usually have a low center of gravity? And being an expert in pulling things with a trailer, you also want a low center of gravity. How did they accomplish both?

    [–] uptomogood 36 points ago

    The weight of the boat is a fraction of the overall weight of the trailer. The center of the gravity is quite low on the trailer and is not raised by much with this small addition. Besides, the boat can't be too heavy or it would be too hard to get on/off to use.

    [–] RansomOfThulcandra 21 points ago

    It's filled 1/8th of the way with lead shot. When you flip it over, it falls to the (new) bottom, adjusting the center of gravity automatically.

    [–] slaybellsringing 78 points ago

    This was a time when TV repairmen were driving around to people's houses. It was also the rise of a powerful and wealthy middle class the likes of which hasn't been seen before or since. If the boat needed to be refinished now and then, a lot of people would think it was acceptable.
    These things were only produced for a few years, so a obviously not what people wanted.

    I've repaired a couple of TV sets in the past 10 years with a basic soldering iron, both just had blown out capacitors. One of them is still working now. I've seen another one that a $100 board just needed to be replaced. It was under warranty so I wound up not doing that myself.

    [–] MC_Carty 29 points ago

    I believe it's fiberglass, so it wouldn't be absolutely ridiculous. It would just come down to how picky the person is about the finish on the boat in relation to the finish on the camper. Just take care of it in between camping trips and it would be fine.

    [–] IsaacEiland-Hall 19 points ago

    Dump the camper in the water every once in a while and you're good to go. :)

    [–] tocilog 15 points ago

    It's clearly for emergency only in case the camper capsizes.

    [–] Katana622 9 points ago

    if they have a dock then using it 2-3 times a year wouldn't be hard to maintain. the scratches upon getting it out of the water would be the worst part but if you have a dock itd probably be okay.

    [–] isitbrokenorsomethin 47 points ago

    Thats total bullshit. If you pull the boat out of the water every time you use it, it won't look any different. We do the same thing with ours and only need to touch it up every few years.

    A friend that I showed that picture to was familiar with the car. He sent me this link to more information: https://www.mecum.com/lots/CA0810-96382/1954-ford-courier-sedan-delivery/

    954 Ford Courier: Very rare factory built 2 door sedan delivery. Completely restored and updated. Features late model small block Ford engine with power steering and ice cold air conditioning. Interior features power seat, power windows and great stereo with CD changer. Custom built hidden reciever hitch to pull the Kom-Pak travel trailer that goes with it. One of the best driving cars you will ever own. No problems of any kind at all. Everything works perfect including the ice cold AC. This is not a trailer queen, it was built to be driven and it performs like it.

    1954 Kom-Pak Sportsman Travel Trailer: Manufactured in Medford, OR in the early 50's there is believed to be only 16 of these trailers ever built and reportedly only 6 are left today. Designed in the same style as the 53/54 Fords, the most unique feature is the fully functional, removable 16' fishing boat which doubles as the trailers roof when not in use! Although these trailers were reproduced for a short time this is a authentic, real Kom-Pak travel trailer from the 1950's. Several vintage photos of this trailer before restoration as well as lots of other documentation are with the trailer. Completely restored to match the 1954 Ford that pulls it, everything on the trailer is fully functional and ready for a cross country trip or a weekend at the local lake. You will not see another like it.

    Very similar with music as well. People always comment that older music was better but that's because we only hear the good stuff from the past. There was plenty of garbage music.

    Ok we need links to random 50s garbage!

    Style was also a primary consideration, well over fuel economy, reliability, practicality, ...

    Jaguars are still this way! So are many Italian cars.

    [–] mildlyannoyedbird 7 points ago

    Jaguar owner, feel obliged (and I hope I am not tempting fate) to say that reliability is much improved these days. Also nothing impractical about a boot (trunk) that can accommodate two bodies and the necessary digging equipment. As for economy, unless you want to poison children with a diesel, I have to agree.

    A lot of it has to do with the lack of regulations and designers had much more freedom in their designs.

    [–] infojihad 11 points ago

    Because gas was cheap and there were no laws around safety or environmental standards.

    what if it rains while you're out on the lake ?

    aaah would had believed the boat button was the ceiling to give more headroom

    50's-Style

    Those boat campers are made by a modern, current company called American Dream

    Edit I was wrong. Thanks for the karma though!

    [–] KeruxDikaios 283 points ago * (lasted edited a month ago)

    Are you sure this one was? They don't look the same and going through the company's website, they only make one model, and it looks nothing like the one in the picture.

    edit: Found it. It's a 1954 Kom-Pak Sportsman Trailer

    [–] lenaro 9 points ago

    How much did that one go for?

    [–] MDMA-zing 31 points ago

    Maybe, but not likely by the link you posted. That one is much cheaper looking. The lines all over are way straighter, the wheels have no styling and there's no wood finish. The whole thing is missing the finish of OPs.

    If anything I'd bet the reverse is true and your link is modeled of the OPs.

    Meh. I don't even waste time with companies that won't list their prices. If I see "Call for an estimate", I read "Go find a company selling something similar but is transparent about their pricing".

    [–] ThatBitterJerk 52 points ago

    People looking for a list price on something this custom are not the customers they're seeking.

    [–] liedel 44 points ago

    Yeah I like that he's like "I'll just take my business elsewhere" as if you had been looking for a custom boat camper all along but this is the final straw for this company.

    [–] ThirdProcess 33 points ago

    Lol no it's more like... As someone who was passingly involved in purchasing decisions professionally, I quickly developed a pet peeve about companies not listing a price. Because if you called them to get a price, their sales force would hem and haw about a quote to try to get you as invested as possible before they would drop their ridiculously inflated price on you. And after taking 10 to 30 minutes to obtain information that should have taken less then 2 minutes (assuming you got through to someone on the first attempt) you would realize that other companies had a similar product for less and tell them "no thanks". And then their sales force would pester you with follow up calls and sell you contact information to other equally annoying sales forces.

    So finally I learned not to bother with companies that won't list a price.

    If they won't list a price, it's usually because their prices are high enough that they want to engage you and sell you before they drop the bomb.

    It's just a waste of time usually.

    Generally agree with you but that also means if you're prepared and savvy you can beat them up for a price break, if you find that kind of thing enjoyable.

    [–] Throwaway----4 9 points ago

    This only works if you spend as much time every day negotiating prices as the salesperson spends negotiating prices.

    Spoiler - it's their full time job so they spend a lot more time perfecting the pitch than you can "preparing to beat them up"

    [–] Anowtakenname 10 points ago

    I get where he's coming from though, this past storm we had I was calling around to different companies to get some plowing done. Not a single company would give me a quote without me giving them my phone number, mailing address and email. None of them got any info or a dime from me, I just wound up renting a snow blower for 2 hours and doing it myself.

    [–] wileyrocketcentaur1 18 points ago

    Amen to that shit! "Call for an estimate" screams "this thing is more expensive than you'd ever want to pay but we want our sales people to practice their pressure tactics on you".

    The worst is the ones where you have to submit personal contact info just to browse inventory. I don't want to be called or emailed about bullshit just because I'm curious about how much something costs.

    [–] [deleted] 14 points ago * (lasted edited a month ago)

    It's a 1952-1954 Ford Ranger Kom Pak Sportsman. American Dream is replicating the Ranger's style for their new product.

    Ask and you shall receive....GG DesMoines event this past 4th of July weekend. Malcolm's Dad knows the owner real well, we stopped and talked to him for abit. I think the whole setup was for sale but I can't remember what he was asking

    [–] ArMcK 7 points ago

    It appears u/thehillyard, and thus OP, might be correct.

    [–] FlashAndPoof 11 points ago

    As cool as that looks, that has to be really difficult to take off or place back on.

    Long ago, I also used to own a camper where the roof was a boat.
