oh sure....but apart from that they are perfect.....

Earlier this year we were anchored next to a Wharram on the south coast of NSW. Really quite remarkable things but hardly mainstream. I kind of liken them to those old VW Kombis with the 6v electricals and split windscreens. Legendary , no doubt, but you'd have to be out of your tree to want one.
