Very interesting idea. I think you'd need to "package" your concept, and
be ready to pitch it. Not just anybody could pull that off, but I think
you could, based on your sales background. I would wrap your "portability"
into your sales pitch. Sounds like fun! My primary concern would be
high-speed Internet connectivity - are there good mobile solutions to
ensure coverage as you travel?

A word of caution: rent one of these things before you buy one. In my
heavy metal years I lived and toured in a variety of these, and while they
are nice, it seems like none of them has ever succeeded in conquering one
basic challenge - the bathroom.

Ask anybody - even the world's biggest rock star - what the Cardinal Rule
of the Tour Bus is, and you'll get the same answer: don't poop on the bus.
We can put a man on the moon, but apparently we can't ventilate a rolling
commode. Some odors just won't go away.

Maybe they're getting better at this, but I suggest that you ask your RV
salesman some tough questions about that particular aspect of RV life.
