The CyberLandr would have to be.



One company has received $50 million worth of orders for its Overland Cybertruck camper.

I struggled to get through the video with that robotic voice narrating the content. I do like the idea of the heated floors but would grow tired quickly of constantly trying to reconfigure the floor plan as my activities changed throughout the day. One would almost be better off having a bed and a bathroom inside and everything else outside.

Oh my god. Seriously? I can just see what happens when the driver heads west on I-84 along the Columbia River, or ANYWHERE in Wyoming. The first good burst of wind will blow that thing right off. Maybe it's easily replaceable...it looks like cardboard boxes, piled one atop the other.

I scanned through the video.  Somehow I can't imagine how that bathroom is going to work.  Since it sits on the tailgate, how wide can it be?  BTW, the tailgate looks badly slanted in the side view.  Then the wall panels between the bathroom the trailer overlap in a way that could leak into the living area.  Didn't see any storage space at all. 

 

Back to the drawing board for this thing.

I'd say it's also actual proof of what people will buy when drunk or high on drugs.  They've sold 200 of them at $50k each already and the first one is yet to be built.

You gotta start with getting the truck and then add the contraption on the back. I think that I will pass on getting the first part; the truck. 🤢

I can't see that truck being anything more than a 'look at this' sort of rig. The kind of truck that one tows on a flatbad behind a beat up ol' farm pickup.

And, I'm sorry to say, while I never judge a person based on his facial features, Elon Musk looks like a third string used car salesman. (a very, very WEALTHY third string used car salesman...)
