Amphibious RV To Crash Super Bowl Party

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – An RV is making its way around Jacksonville, Florida, this weekend for the Super Bowl, but you won’t see it on the roads – you’ll see it floating on water.

The world’s first amphibious luxury motorcoach, called the Terra Wind, will take Super Bowl fans down the St. John’s River.

The floating RV was crafted from an old military vehicle by owners John and Julie Giljam, and rolled out in 2003.

It features a GPS Navigation System, plasma TV, whirlpool tub, and dishwasher or as RV spokesman Daniel Decker puts it, “All the bells and whistles of an expensive RV.”

The floating RV can reach up to seven knots per hour in the water and 80 mph on the road.

Decker admits the Giljams are driving the bus down from South Carolina to get media attention and although they will give a lot of tours in it this weekend, Decker says ultimately the Giljams are hoping to sell it “for $1 million at the very least.”
