Futuristic Luxury RV Motorhome Futuria Review

Get a load of this Motor home! While not technically a Motor home, (actually it's a Fifth Wheel towed by an HDT), it features its own garage and they even throw in a car to fill it!

I don't see us trading up to this model anytime soon, it does have its Charms!

FUTURIA – Yacht on Wheels



Futuria
If you like to travel and do not like to travel by sea this luxury motorhome Futuria is for you. The latest in the highest quality motorhomes is Futuria’s sports+spa caravan that was recently unveiled at the Caravan Salon 2010 in Dusseldorf, Germany. This mansion on wheels contains everything for luxury traveling: bathroom, bedroom, 11-foot roof terrace with Jacuzzi and even sports car garage. With many other additional features this luxurious caravan will cost you only $840,000.

It holds the banked track well!

Look! The Very Expensive Photographer just justified his purchase of a Fish Eye Lens!

Looks like a Shuffle Board Court Up Top...not for those with Vertigo! (Are those People trapped up there and signalling for help? How long does it take to put up the Kiddie Fence?)

Just what every Senior RV Owner wants...More Stairs! At this price, I think a Tommy Lift Elevator is in order! It would certainly take up less space!

And the hot tub, is there enough water storage and waste storage facilities on board? Of course not. This is more or less a large yard ornament! Would love to see the size and hear the sound of the generator it takes heat the water and to push those water jets!

Futuria
My Husband would like to know it the Young Lady also comes with the vehicle, I want to know where SHE will sleep...maybe in the front seat of the car?

Booorrriing....Looks like the inside of a U-Haul Van....and why the shiny Ceiling? So you can see how boring your interior is from all angles?
Futuria

I find it a bit over simplified on the inside and not enough windows, shucks, if you have the time to design and install a hot tub, why not put a slide out and some glass in the rig! A side note: See how happy the Young Man is sitting there sipping Tea with the Strange Scarf Lady? (maybe she is his Mom).

And a U shaped bench dinette...every one knows how convenient they are when the guy in the back corner has to use the BATHROOM, and speaking of that...Is there one?

The Galley...what there is of one, Is That a Red Solo Cup Dispenser on the Wall Cubby above the Knee Height Microwave? Maybe they do have something here!

(Note to self: Unit is soooo expensive could not afford a screen door).

The Dinette would be the first to go for me, I'd want a recliner or two, a larger, lowered television and a fireplace since that's what we already have in our "Ghetto Mobile" in comparison to this model.

Futuria


I find the interior Booorrriiiiing....yawn. For the Bucks, I expect more than a glorified garage, but that's just me....hopefully that hatch in the floor is the bathtub sized beer cooler!

Is that a Dentist Spit Sink? Certainly you can't do anything else with that tiny receptacle!



And where, may I ask, is the bedroom? Don't rich people sleep? Maybe the Space Age U shaped Dinette folds down into a Communal Sleep Pit.

Oh Well...Maybe if they just take a hundred pictures of the car in the garage no one will notice this home is unlivable....so they did...see below!

Rolling On The River-Lazy Day




After a busy Event, I like to stroll around and take pictures of the undisturbed wilderness that often graces the area around us to remind myself to do more than just set up, work in the kitchen, tear down and move on.

I took a stroll down the banks of the Black River here in Wisconsin and was amazed at just how beautiful and quiet this area really is.

Most people think of Beer and Dairy Farms when considering this state, few think of the vast forests that cover most of the state.

If you do travel through Wisconsin, be sure to get off the interstate and travel her excellent secondary roads, you wont be disappointed!

We are tore down and have an Event in Cannon Falls, Mn at the end of the week, but we are finding it very difficult to tear ourselves away from this lovely place.


All the birds are in full mating splendor and fill the air with their songs of love and hope to the point of being obnoxious, if there is such a thing!

 I have been busy hand sewing a few new elk hide dresses and Doyle has been making copper beads in the short time we have before we roll out of here, we always manage to squeeze a few minutes in for our own personal enjoyment as we can!


It was really a shock to me to find out at this last Event how many people are living in the past and can't quite move on. I guess that's OK for them, but our life is always new and ever evolving so I just don't get it.

I was a bit surprised to sit down with a friend and find out the only things she wanted to talk about was things that happened more than six years ago! It seems like a lifetime ago that Doyle and I met and things have changed so much it's almost like she was talking about someone else!

I guess for some people things never change and they are always looking backwards to the "Glory Days" while I am always waking up looking forward to the new adventure each day brings.

I can't imagine being in a life where time never really moves forward and that the past holds more attraction than the present. Sure, I had kids and worked a regular corporate job and lived in a house I rebuilt myself but that was long ago, and though enjoyable, I have moved on to a new life full of new surprises and adventure.

It is a bit disconcerting to find someone who still wants to query me about the past and ask me how I felt about it. Who Cares? Since that time I have given up everything I held important then and have almost lost my own life and the life of my husband. We have traveled tens of thousands of miles and met countless people and had many experiences good and bad. How the heck would I know how I felt then when I'm a completely different person now?

It doesn't matter what happened then, other than I must have learned something from it or I wouldn't still be here today. That's all I need to hang my hat on and I feel sorry for someone who still thinks what happened six years ago is relevant.

Living on the road, you really can leave the past behind. Hopefully one takes ones life lessons seriously and doesn't revisit the mistakes of yesteryear, but in general, living on the road is about what's in front of you out the windshield and not what is in the rear view mirror.

Catching up on Our Annual Full Time RV Migration North..We Have Arrived and Been Busy!

Over Night Stay
 By now you might figure we either were abducted by Aliens or lost somewhere, we did make it to Wisconsin in one piece but we had an Event to set up for right away so we didn't get a chance to rest up and get a post off...

Our trip home was uneventful yet very enjoyable, other than Illinois and Indiana Interstates, which leave something to be desired as far a a smooth ride...nothing against either state, we have been to many lovely areas in both, but the Interstates are just plain rough and buckled, we even resorted to adding a couple days to journey by taking the back roads and enjoying ourselves a bit.
What on Your Dash?

This is my "What's on your Dash?" contest, if you are brave enough to do it, snap a pic of your dash and leave a link in the comments and I'll do a posting on the clutter before us....

I, of course have an ever changing palate of Sea Shells in the South and Pine Cones in the North...so predictable!

Shooting out the Truck Window

Another Farm, What a Surprise!

Eating Our Way Across the country...




Had a great time trying out the new camera, shot these pics out the window in 800 speed shutter time, it really did a good job of freezing the action!


Below is our usual barbeque fare cooked on our Holland Gas Grill, I've found a new way to cook burgers, I just throw a couple of large onions sliced up on the grill and throw the raw burgers on top, then when I flip over the burgers I flip the onions at the same time. It really flavors the burgers and keeps them juicy while making the onions perfect for eating!

Next I plan throwing a few onions and green peppers in too for good measure.

Hope you Spring is and wonderful and a Big Shout Out to Jill and Frank, who have just joined us Full Timers on the road in a new Motor coach, (well at least it's new to them, I hear it's pristine!) Hope every mile is a safe and Blessed one for them, always good to share the enthusiasm of new converts!

As for us, we are still very happy with our lifestyle, we even gave up our seasonal Campsite on the Mississippi and are just being Gypsies this year, we always get a really reasonable rate when Campground Owners find out we are Full Timers and Doyle always chips in with chores around the Campground anyway...so it always works out good for us!

I wanted to mention we are at Lost Falls Campground near Black river Falls Wisconsin. If we do decide to get a permanent lot, it will probably be here, the owners run a tight ship and it's so very quiet here you can't help but fall in love with it's tranquil setting with local shopping within 10 miles!
