You guys are so gracious... thanks (?).  As for go-between, I'd ask for a demonstration of proficiency in the language, but I'm not sure how to judge it.

They are pretty cool. We were doing a fix/update to some electrical gremlins. They use a lot of Victron gear and we are a dealer for that stuff.  They layout is nice, and the build quality is high. There are some really cool gadgets on board.  The price is high but I think it's built right for that part of the market. I've heard that they are looking for distributor/dealers in the states and am thinking about what it would take to make that happen. 

 
Price on all caravans is high in Australia compared to N. America, if you have ever checked out a purchase-then-sell holiday. I can see there being a market for mid-level 4x4 caravans in the US, like for dirt roads that can get muddy or a bit washed out. Not sure about the full-on vehicles where they design them around the width of nasty tracks up to the top-end and going over major obstacles. Then again it is the kind of thing people tend to over-buy, for plans that may never materialize or just because they are way-cool.

Still judging from what I've seen on the roads on US holidays, it's a pretty unique niche and some well-placed articles on 4x4 websites could generate interest.

I have looked at the folding campers in the past and still think they are pretty cool but might not be glitzy enough for the US market. Still you can get off-road models and they tow better with smaller vehicles. 

Probably worth exploring the Aussie camper websites to see what is available. Had the seamstress make a mosquito net cover for my Passat moonroof but still haven't tried it out. I was actually surprisingly comfortable doing a long road trip in a compact car, sleeping in the back seat when I couldn't sleep under the stars so I think a station wagon will luxury for 1 person.

definitely targeting a small niche market, but pretty cool. They reminded me of this Kiwi start-up. Also ridiculously expensive but also successfully targeting a tiny niche.
btw, someone at the company has an interesting interpretation of "commercial".

Stripped down price $38,000, say $50k really. But it probably goes up in value over time, like a small airplane.  I wonder what happens in a lightening strike.

I wouldn't go as far as lust, but it's pretty cool and I could see dragging it for an extended trip.  Then I saw the price.... still pretty cool.
