I found this 1990 Avion without looking very hard.

A couple of questions

Do they all have twin beds in the rear?
Is the lavatory always in the rear?

Thanks for the suggestion on Tiny Texas Houses. I'm thinking along these lines someday. Those houses are so cool. I think an RV would help bridge the gap in the meantime.
