    Electric motorhome

    Looks nice, but will it be practical? This company appears to be trolling for dollars: https://electricmotorcycles.news/eoo...onal-vehicles/

    Couldn't be more practical in my opinion. Remember, campgrounds and mobile home parks are prime places for cross-country charging (or at least were, a few years ago before charging stations popped up everywhere) because of their utility hookups. Gas is a huge expense for these things - they typically get single-digit mileage (miles per gallon, or gallons per mile? ) and they sit for long periods of time, parked in campgrounds, so could use solar charging as well. What's not to love?

    Now, consider a toy hauler that could charge up your Altas. That could be a game changer!

    Winnebago has been working on an all-electric motorhome with solar panels for a bit now, it would appear:

    Recently I am testing the one-wheeled scooter. Now for me this is one of the most convenient transports. Technology and development have already achieved a lot on it. My friend Timur Vladimirovich Artemiev recently patented in the field of self-balancing powered unicycle device. So I advise everyone to try this E transport. 1. Quickly get to the right place 2. Conveniently you can take with you to the office 3. This is an ecological type of transport!

    That reminds me of the really funny Road and Track articles from the 1960's telling of the exploits of the one-wheel Italian Uno rally racing car. Its two racer drivers were noted for their flat-faces which were the result of hard braking during their rally racing exploits.
