I love the Airforums. Here we go arguing about arguing about tow vehicles. In engineering terms this is called a second order argument.

Wow, it's just gotten so meta in here. I'm freaking out a bit.

Arguing about tow vehicles is definitely a "First World Problem!"

And then there's a NEW take on the whole thing!

Its just my opinion, but there are lots of good tow vehicles and we DO get to go personal preference with a good degree of safety - which doesn't mean you can't find some "Darwin effect" choices documented on youtube...

But every now and then someone posts something that shows what happens when you REALLY think outside the box.

http://www.airforums.com/forums/f463...ie-121273.html

Look at the photobucket! What a fulltimers dream. It even gives one a spare bedroom - handy if too much 5 bean dip and beer have been consumed and someone's resulting methane releases could set off the CO detector!

I was ready to pop on this, and then I saw the price tag.

Remember, the cake is a lie!

How's that for a meta argument?

I was ready to pop on this, and then I saw the price tag.

Also in that thread was Smokeless Joe's awesome Sprinter chassis with Mini on the back towing that stunning (inside and out) Argosy. I think all in he was selling that rig sub-$100k (to a couple in VT I think?). I love my rig but if I had $100k I wasn't doing anything with, I'd have loved to have snagged that up!

Just another great example of Bruce's point - one size doesn't fit all. Plenty to appreciate in everyone's different views whether we understand or agree with them.

After reading some of these TV posts to my wife, she said "Wouldn't it be easier for these guys to just step into the restroom with a ruler and settle this thing?"
