That is what it originally gets. The RV is all stock, eventually I will be adding a couple of things to it, but first I need to finish the inside.

Any hints on where to track one down at?
Google or you can start here:

and there is a Vixen msn group:

Wow, around $15-25k will get me one of these suckers. Pretty amazing. Now for the hard part: talking my wife into it!

Wow. Amazing that I have never seen one... I could practically walk to the plant they were built at.

I daydream about building something similar all the time. lol

Could you try and explain how the roof operates (I couldn't gather much other than automatic)

Well, the roof on my model is a fixed roof, Eventually I will be installing a full length cloth top that can retract.

As for weight, mine (I have the limo model) weighs 5000 lbs loaded. Although I wouldnt mind rebuilding the fiberglass body from carbon fiber and a honey comb board. I figure I could save nearly 1500 lbs off the body of it.
