In the RV world, it was like David versus Goliath.
Parked across from one another at the Rhode Island Convention Center were the Newmar Ventana, a 43-foot motorhome weighing 30,000 pounds, and the Little Guy [email protected], a so-called teardrop trailer weighing just 1,650 pounds.
According to a report by the Providence Journal, the placing of the two vehicles at the 21st annual Rhode Island RV & Camping Show illustrated how the event this past weekend catered to those whose tastes run from lean to luxurious. When it comes to homes on wheels, buyers are, quite literally, all over the place as thousands potential buyers visited the show.
The [email protected] is actually the largest of the teardrop trailers made by Little Guy. It basically has a table and two benches that can be converted to a bed and a hatch in the rear that pops up to reveal a sink, counter and dishwater.
“This is the smallest, and you won’t need a truck with a 454 engine,” said salesman Dan Kearney, of Center Rutland, Vt. Still, he said, “It has power, lights, AC, and a stove.”
It costs $18,900 and can be towed by a car.
Instead of crawling inside, you have to climb aboard the Ventana. Inside, a bedroom boasts a king-size bed and flat-screen TV; an adjacent bathroom has a glass shower stall and double sink.
