Who needs slideouts?
« on: April 26, 2010, 11:07:45 AM »
Check out what this Japanese architect did in about the same square footage as a bus. Amazing.
 More like a slide-in instead of a slide-out.  talk about thinking INSIDE the box!

If you wake up hungry, do you have to make up the bed before you can access the kitchen?

The biggest drawback for me is that you have to keep all your stuff properly stored. I'm too much of a slob to be able to do that.  :o

I wouldn't want to be him and down with the flu.

Can you imagine having to store your bedroom to get to the bathroom?

This idea has some value, but wouldn't be practical in a coach.

It's neat, but what this apartment is obviously lacking is....a slideout! That full-height, full-width window opening is ideal for one.

Oh, and I suspect the guy is Chinese, not Japanese

A shameless plug for my business - visit www.magazineexchange.co.uk for back issue magazines - thousands of titles covering cars, motorbikes, aircraft, railways, boats, modelling etc. You'll find lots of interest, although not much covering American buses sadly.
