    A couple of questions. Would water made from air still have necessary minerals in it for health (I know we get some from food, but we get the majority from our water)? Trash cans, recycling cans, and vacuum filters need to be emptied pretty often along with the gray tank, so wouldn’t you need to “come home” every week or so, or at least into a town with dump tanks and trash facilities?

      “Would water made from air still have necessary minerals in it for health (I know we get some from food, but we get the majority from our water)?”

      No, minerals would have to be added, which can be done like how it’s done with filtered or distilled water, but for health most minerals are part of a proper diet and water is usually a secondary source that isn’t always available.

      Spring and mineral water can have a number of minerals but not all of them or always at the same amount/concentration naturally. While other water sources typically are either poor or lacking in minerals and it usually has to be added, usually for flavor. Leaving supplements and proper diet for the primary source and the most dependable…

      Mind, the body doesn’t need all minerals in equal amounts either. The major minerals that the body needs in relatively high (>100 mg/day) amounts include calcium, chloride, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, and sodium. While people only need trace minerals in small (<100 mg/day) amounts that include chromium, cobalt, copper, iodine, iron, manganese, molybdenum, selenium, and zinc.

      While gray water disposal will depend on the local rules and what is actually in the gray water. There are places that allow direct dumping if required conditions are met.

      It can also depend on what kind of off-grid systems are utilized. Most waste can be incinerated, for example. Size of tanks and usage rate can also effect time before needing anything to be dumped… A separate trailer or vehicle could be utilized to perform dump trips without moving camp site… Cassette toilet, for example can just have the cassette removed and taken to a dump site or a portable dump tank can be used to drain the primary tank and then taken to dump site to empty… A personal property site could have its own waste systems to plug into, place to dump trash, composting becomes an option, etc… Some places around the country it can also be normal to need to drive to a trash dump location instead of having a pick up service, making the need to travel the same even if in a regular residential home…

      There can be a number of options depending on the actual setup, location, etc.

    I like it a lot with all the great ideas integrated. The material for example are light weight, durable and low maintenance. the massive solar and brilliant water system, balcony, lift up bed to name a few only.
    What I don’t like is the wet bath and unfortunately all these are bringing up the price into areas most of us can’t afford.
    But it is well designed and thought for off grid living and travel.

      Builder originally did Airstream remodeling/restoration, along with a history with yachts, etc. and wanted to produce that kind of high end luxury THOW that’s still usable as a RV, which requires it to be pretty over built to last and lots of attention to tiny details. So yeah, it’s much pricier than even most high end THOWs out there but every detail is top notch…

    Very great concept, we really love the amenity. Does it have removable waste or gray water cassettes?

      Normally configured with the usual trio of fresh and waste tanks with optional compost toilet but they offer some customization on request. So other options could be considered too…
