Am I the only one who has bought one of these?

I can't even find any information on a Camp Rover, although I heard of them.  

I saw a short video on a MicroMax that was interesting to me,  one that fits in a garage.  It has an inside galley, but doesn't appear one could stand up in it, says 66 inches high.

Whoops, MicroMax is 78 inches high.  If Rough Rider package, might barely fit in my garage without roof rack.  So, you can stand up, if not too tall.

I got the rough rider. It's 6' 7" inside and roomy. It's the max without all the trim and with bunks.

Thanks.  That looks nice.  I don't need that big nor bunks, but I like the look better than most.

I got one too: the Rough Rider. 

Very pleased with it. I towed it from NC to Taos, NM in April. No issues other than lousy gas mileage in my Chevy Colorado.

@dres

by the way, I put piano hinges on the three bunk/cabinet openings using the cut-outs that came with it. I added magnets to make the doors stay closed. 

I don't think we'll ever use that as a bunk bed.

@mmorriss13 ditto on unexpectedly low gas mileage towing with my ridgeline.  Was a lot better before I put stuff in it.

Thanks for the tips about the hinges.  I may consider that.  Pics would be great if you got them.

I'm considering something like magnets for the cabinets because, man, the place was a wreck after some traveling.  Anything moderately heavy flew out.  Luckily nothing broke but the drawer under the fridge is being strained.

Another idea instead of magnets, which could make the cabinets more difficult to open, is putting a chain or tray inside the cabinets to hold contents away from the door.  That or just a latch on the door which would only get hooked closed during travel but that would affect aesthetics.
