Just showing how small the roadster is, I can get most of the car under the overhang of the 5th wheel!

Ive been thinking of how to fit a roadster in the belly of a motor couch for some time. I think if you have a removable low windshield it could be done. But i guess i need to finish working on my current project. you're just getting me to think out loud.
