Winnebago, the recreation vehicle maker who is better known for crazy-sized RV that can’t go beyond paved roads, now has one that will delight fans of wilderness.

Atomic Camper – Pure Awesomeness with None of the Danger

the camper here is aptly refer to as Atomic Camper and it is a result of two things: making the best of bad situation and pure creativity. Atomic Camper is the work of a Alaskan man by the name of Bill Guernsey who has too much time on his hands which he had while on the road of recovery after an unfortunate plane crash and it is also a shining example of man’s creativity when given the opportunity to do so. and that opportunity was unfortunately, the long, arduous recovery journey during which Bill thought he needed something to keep himself occupied. it took Bill two years to arrive to what this 16-foot long bright red rocket on wheels is today and we not talking about two years of weekends and after work; we talking about six hours a day, six days a week of pure dedication and the result is an obvious winner.
