I recently saw an RV show featuring motorhomes/travel buses for the rich and famous. Some incredible stuff out there if you have the money.

It's the "new economy." In the 1960s, 90 employees who could afford a $25,000 Winnebago worked for a CEO who owned a $250,000 Luxury Winnebago. In the 2010's, 50 overworked employees live near the poverty line so one CEO can own a $2,500,000 monstrosity. (The other 50 work in the third world, below the poverty line.) It's called trickle down economics. There are lot's of things that trickle down in business but money isn't one of them. (In business, money trickles up and things people don't want trickle down.) Not everything is progress and the loss of unions is not one of them. They were the great equalizer.

No CEO I knew would be watching television outside and keeping his beers cold for tailgating. This is an expensive rapidly depreciating asset for someone who doesn't know what to do with money. Perhaps the next $20M lottery winner. :)

So you are saying this is more of a Jed Clampett toy than a CEO toy? With all the fracking in the US, that's a growing market. But wait, where's the fancy eatin' table? ;)
