This thing was up on Ebay a year or so ago if I recall correctly. Funny thing, I guess even Peterbilt's have tail sag. Notice the elephant ears? (Not being serious)



I suppose you could make this into the ultimate MoHo, but you'd need to do something with the fold out steps. Imagine stepping out the door and forgetting just how far the 2nd step is from the ground.

I remember that....maybe the price of gas made the new owner rethink his purchase! More likely he never sold it though.

One of those is the grey and the other is a black water tank. It is really meant for some serious boondocking.

Janet,
IMHO, a simple "Not for Hire" sign on each door should keep em rolling~

Four years ago I saw a setup like this where the carny workers camp at the Minnesota State Fair. Couldn't get a decent picture through the chain link.

We've had Don in E Texas with his fun avatar - http://www.airforums.com/forums/f463...tml#post234145

Earlier this month in Glacier I laughed as this rig negotiated three of their narrow semicircle campsites before finding one it could fit into. The front bumper suggests he's attempted this before. He didn't unhitch the 3 days I saw him there and his 5th wheel sat significantly 'up' at the front.

Actually we could not get a drop bar long enough, so the customer went with the Reese Dual Cam.

June 2003...wow, how time flies!!!
