Imagine the raised floor for a roof in the 'garage'.

I guess this would please those few billioneres to have a large motorhome and that would have someone else drive it for them.

There is most likely a high end market for this option.
This would free up the tow positon for yet another option.
Maybe a Teardrop for short trips away from the mother ship? :D

In large motorhomes here (what you guys would call small RVs!), a transverse garage under a back double bed is becoming common - they're sized so you can just drive in a scooter, often in one side and out the other, which is used for local travel.

I spent about half an hour tryign to find a decent photo to put in my last post, without success. However putting 'scooter garage' in Google images turned up many. Here are a couple from a recent RV show - the second is a powered loading system as getting a scooter up there isn't that easy:

The two options being a car or a scooter: I can almost see having a place for a scooter - almost. But neither option will be much os a sale here in the good 'Ol USA, it's just too small.
We need a full size SUV to get around in when were not in our diesel pusher. Them 'lil cars and scooters are just not safe!
