Colossal, enormous, gargantuan, titanic, gigantic, these are just a few words that could be used to describe this truck. Of course, you could also call it luxurious, comfortable, capable, and overland ready. That’s because it’s a 2012 Global Expedition Vehicle, designed and manufactured for exploring the far reaches of the globe in complete serenity. It will allow you to take a hot shower while parked on the coast of the Arctic Ocean, drink cool margaritas in the air-conditioned cab in the middle of the Sahara, or simply cruise into the remote regions of the U.S. on enormous tires with 140 gallons of fuel in the tank. I don’t know about you, but I’d be up for any of that. So lets take a closer look at this private yacht on wheels.
Reason for Selling
Well, here goes…after much thought, we have decided to part with our rig. (I can’t even believe I’m saying that!) I’m sure the first question will be “Why?” Well, it turns out when you own your own business, as I do, there can be times when you have to be more personally involved. We have been in that season for a while now and recently haven’t been able to utilize our rig like we had hoped. It is time for someone else to “continue the journey.”
