The pursuit of happiness: one of three unalienable rights asserted by our forefathers.

The American Dream Trailer: one of many unalienable methods for achieving said right, and named aptly for doing exactly that.

ADT want Americans to “embrace a digital detox,” and they’ve built a 4″ x 8″ fiberglass vehicle with a detachable rowboat as its primary roof to prove it.

The trailers are outfitted with a full bed, a galley for cooking and storage, and can be customized with options like a convertible couch, foldaway table, two-color exterior paint job and reverse tail lights. The towable, rowable base models start at $8,900, weigh in at a slim 650 pounds and are made in Oregon by Portland couple Paul and Tyla Dahlman.

“The idea of keeping things simple, small and smart is the framework for spontaneous vacations from the habitual routines of today’s culture,” according to the Dahlmans.

Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily, life is but an American dream.
