Seems like one of those VW Vanagons might work well for something like this 
(with the exception of the battery and alternator issues, but I have never 
seen one used in this function.  Pop up top, decent fuel mileage, and decent 
room too.  Might work with a good 2" receiver hitch..............Rusty
