Love the desk! Would have liked to have seen the collapsible bed out to see everything in all its glory! 🤷♀️ just me.
certainly would have preferred naration by “the hand” rather than random music – no sleeping space? no toilet – even a 5gal bucket? No cooking surface? Sorry, too bare bones for even week end use.
Um, there’s a toilet of sorts, it was pointed to during the video (hint there was also a roll of toilet paper). There’s also a sleeping space, the bed is just collapsible and stored away when not being used. While you can just plug in something to cook or use a camping stove… Otherwise, yes, not for everyone…
