The Official Meat of Ridemonkey
- Sep 10, 2001
I thought Ford had closed the order books for 2023 Transits a month ago.
This is why I went the route I did. It's still crappy built, but at least I know how crappy. And even after all the redos and upgrades I'm still under $20k all in.Pretty sure I am going to sell the coach and dive into the shit built rv market and buy that chinook dream hauler. Even the brand new one I looked at the other day were junk but not any other choices. Will imagine I will have a several weeks of remodeling and upgrading before I will be satisfied
it would be a different story entirely if I didn’t have to tow with the jeepThis is why I went the route I did. It's still crappy built, but at least I know how crappy. And even after all the redos and upgrades I'm still under $20k all in.
even less room, if the GF didn't have to work or have a space to do so, that would be proper, but alas, I must accommodate
That's why I got a casita. I am also ugly and small.Also ugly and small.
My old boss went with one like that and it was awesome. The plumbing was a nightmare, but that bitch was solid.I like the idea of the scamp and Oliver trailers. Two piece fiberglass construction, I went in one and everything was fiberglass the seats, bathroom mattress stand. Can’t come loose if it’s all one piece. I’m sure leaks are available but not as worrisome. Bet it could float good too and repairable. I bet they are cold though. Also ugly and small.
Back before the oil industry went bust around here you'd see 2-3 of those a day for the geologists and field supervisors. There's not a large market, but there's a market for sure, plus rich overlanding dorksIs there honestly a market for these?
The Earthroamer SX Is a $1M Chevy Silverado Overland Rig on 43sThe Chevy Silverado-based Earthroamer SX is 12 feet tall and 34 feet long, making the massive Goodyears look normal.www.thedrive.com
$1M is more than a lifestyle commitment, but had I won (or even played) the current Powerball, then I guess I could see it.Back before the oil industry went bust around here you'd see 2-3 of those a day for the geologists and field supervisors.

the truck would be a solid buy but that avion camper needs to go, like the budget knock off of airstream and they leak like crazy, my grandad was always plugging holes with his welder25k is almost too cheap

From the more info pageI’ll bite, not quite sure as to how that qualifies as electric?
I'd wondered the same, it's bad naming as in the video they claim it's because the camper part is all electric, no propane.I’ll bite, not quite sure as to how that qualifies as electric?
out of curiosity, do these set up automatically? Is that the appeal?
No idea, Porsche just trying to sell more Gran Turismos.out of curiosity, do these set up automatically? Is that the appeal?
I don’t feel sorry for it, it didn’t have to work this long. I fear it’s not original though.that poor rear axle
ThisI have 400w going to a 40A controller. I'm told I could run 600w through it without issues. Get an MPPT controller, it's worth it. I have the Renogy, it's like $120 and works.
