Rhino liner weighs too much for our application. We are so close to GVWR that even an extra 50 lbs is too much, especially if it is positioned so far above the center of gravity.

I would have preferred something more robust than Bus Kote, but I came up empty on easy alternatives that did not cost the earth.

INTERBLOG - did not realize it adds so much weight. Not something I thought off when doing an empty pickup. Definitely much more important in any of our AI's. That maybe why SportMobile said they can only Rhino coat entire van for certain builds. When I pressed them on why, they kinda danced around the question.

MIKE - include Southern Nevada in that. 4" avg. annual rainfall (US avg. 39"), 0.0" avg. snowfall (US avg. is 26"), 294 avg. days of sunshine (USA avg. is 205 days).

The major cities in United States with the most sun year round are Phoenix and Las Vegas. Both are sunny for 85 percent of the time between sunrise and sunset, amounting to over 3800 hours a year.

But the heat sucks in summer. Good thing for A/C, bad thing for electric bill.
