"Golden Gate": Artist turns out RV
Jay Nelson is an artist not limited to working with paint on canvas or sculpting stuff out of clay. The 32 year-old San Francisco resident envisioned and crafted "Golden Gate" which he describes as "an electric camper car."
Structured out of fiberglass and plywood, the rig--could we call it a "motorhome" of sorts--averages 10 miles-per-hour with a top speed of 20. Motoring down the road requires the driver to sit cross-legged behind the wheel. Like any good RV, Golden Gate has a galley with sink, stove, and cooler; a toilet and bed complete the interior works.
Don't expect mass production on this RV, which incidentally measures 96" x 54" x 64".
