I'd love to get my hands on one of these...even just to drive without converting it. The heck with the 96ft motorhome, I could see my wife and I retiring to a Smart diesel pulling a lightweight teardrop camper.

As it is, some of these little diesels sound rather interesting. Even a constant-speed diesel would work for this as long as it had glow plugs for ease of starting. I mention that as the industrial version of my Isuzu engine has none.

Now THAT would be interesting...electrify my Trooper with traction motors on all 4 wheels and move the engine to a trailer. Just not sure how it would handle submersion and other muddy conditions....I can see the fireworks now LOL
