I’ve never see one of these things before, but it look like a pretty badass off-road van. Apparently the hardtop version of the 710k is pretty rare, and this one looks to be in excellent shape. The rig has sealed differential lockers in the front and rear, portal axles for extra clearance and an air-cooled 4 cylinder 87hp gasoline engine that can travel at speeds up to 68mph (so, no, it isn’t that fast, but are you really gonna be driving something like this on the highway that much?) This thing could make a nice little offroad camper with a few interior modifications.
For sale on eBay in Dumont, Colorado with no reserve.

Next month I’ll be going to Atlanta for a music festival with my girlfriend. While we were looking for accommodations on Airbnb, I came across this really cool treehouse located pretty centrally in the city. If we’d be spending more time at the actual place we’re staying, I’d be seriously tempted to rent this place. There is a bedroom and separate living room just a short walk across the bridge. I really like the rustic look they’ve managed to acheive & I really wish I had this thing in my backyard!
From the listing:
Suite of 3 connected treehouses set in the secluded intown neighborhood of Buckhead. The living room, bedroom and deck are all beautifully furnished with antiques and natural artifacts. We’re nestled amongst towering trees yet minutes from midtown Atlanta. Wine and breakfast included. Truly Unique!
- The Space
- Centrally located within the heart of intown Atlanta, this is a secluded gem. The subject of numerous TV and magazine features, this may be the most romantic, unique, dreamy and fun place you’ll ever stay. Fall asleep in the trees and wake up to the birds singing around you!
Living Room: Antique furnishings including 80 year old butterfly-filled windows, 12-candle chandelier, and a balcony overlooking an acre of lush woods. It is the perfect place to relax.
Bedroom: Sleeps 2. The pillow-top double bed is fitted with sumptuous linens and slides out onto a platform that overlooks the stream below. A small desk, primitive side-tables, an antique birdcage, Kilim rugs, candles and fairy lights make it as comfortable as it is magical.
Deck: Circular seating and a hammock lying beneath a 150 year old Southern Short-Leaf Pine tree.
The treehouses are open to the elements but are protected by rain with tin roofs and mosquitoes by the elevation and breeze.
- Guest Access
- Guests will have free parking in our driveway (We highly recommend renting a car in Atlanta) and access to a private, indoor bathroom within the main house (about a 20 second walk from the treehouses).
- Interaction with Guests
- Upon your arrival, we will have a great bottle of wine waiting for you and will provide coffee and a light breakfast each morning.

As someone who frequently takes roadtrips that mostly involve camping and/or sleeping in the car itself, I can certainly appreciate this little invention–so simple that I can’t believe I didn’t think of it (tho I’m not thinking of putting this old camper water tank I’ve got laying around to some good use now…) The road shower is basically a water tank that you mount to your roof rack, you then pressurize the tank with any gas station or at home air compressor to feed water through the attached hose and shower head (or garden hose spray nozzle?) –and voila! You’ve got yourself a mobile shower for the road, or a mobile hose for cleaning dirt and grime off whatever equipment you use for your adventures. The water is heated via solar, tho I’m not sure how well that would work in colder temperatures….
All this can be yours for around $230! Head on over to their website and check it out.
