A luxury motorhome that floats!
“It’s unique,” says John Giljam, president and owner of Cool Amphibious Manufacturers International LLC (CAMI).
Between him and his wife Julie, the couple have conceived a gigantic RV that has the ability to travel 85mph on motorways and not sink when you drive into a lake. In fact, it becomes a rather graceful seven-knot watercraft.
“The Terra Wind has been designed with ultimate luxury in mind,” adds Julie Giljam.
“This vehicle offers state-of-the-art electronics, marble floors, granite countertops and plush leather furnishings. Each Terra Wind is a custom work of art. With every buyer being different they may customize exactly what they want to achieve with their coach. The land, the lake and the luxury are what we are here to give every owner.”
This MPV dwarfing 42.5 footer has the ability to travel on roads at speeds of up to 80 mph or may also serve as a yacht; crossing the water at 7 knots.
A 7.2-litre 3126E Caterpillar diesel engine, Allison transmission and full air suspension make the drive smooth and reliable. But what is it like skippering a camper van on water?
“You just drive into the water, place the road transmission in neutral and the marine transmission into gear and you’re away,” added John. “A one-touch rudder control makes manoeuvring the Terra Wind unbelievably simple.”
