As I was walking home last night, I saw not an SUV/RV hybrid, but an
SUV/stretch limo hybrid. I couldn't believe my eyes. From the back, it
looked just like a sparkling white romp-around-the-city SUV, but the side
view revealed five doors on each side, complete with tinted windows. The
tinted windows prevented me from seeing inside, but hopefully each of those
seats were filled and the gas mileage per person outweighed its
extravagance. Yeah, right.

I wouldn't be surprised if vehicle manufacturers started offering SUV
models based on a tandem design (much like the tandem trucks we see on our
highways now) or some kind of SUV / RV hybrid. However, I also expect all
the free marketers who love the falling energy prices while tooling around
in their 2 mph 4 wheel drive ATV juggernauts will be the first to run
screeching to the Federal government for intervention when the free market
price swings the other way upward.
