No b.s. "B" class

This just pulled in, brand new. Diesel 4x4. What a cool coach! Apparently, some of it was made in Quebec and custom-modified in the States.

Is has that "I'm going to the tip of South America" look. Gen set, the whole nine yards. A Sportsmobile look, but cooler.

Is it permanently raised like that or is it a "pop-top"?

An un-realized dream of mine when I had a Land Rover. The British army did it years ago with LRs and special Avon inflatables to get through the wetter areas.

LOL...good luck! A couple years ago, a Chicago couple bought a B190 and did a North, Central, and South America tour with it, and of course they had to ship the B190 around the Darien Gap, which was an adventure in itself. You might find the website interesting if you haven't seen it: Driving through Canada, Mexico, Central and South America.
