    ACELA 6X6 WITH SLRV EXPEDITION BOX NEW BUILD

    Really not trying to beat you to the punch...but, DAMN! SLRV USA 6.8 (skycamuav.com.au

    Total Composites Slide In Camper Kits

    I wonder if the 8ft version would counter balance the N/S bed extended cabover additional weight?

    2020 Fuso Vs. 2021 NPR

    Are they offering the CORE vehicles with the 6.6? If so, that's interesting.

    We survived the Polar Vortex in our OEV Summit

    Looks like you are leaving all your drawer and cabinet door latches open when you are parked? I'm curious about the story behind this - it seems like a perfect "catch something" opportunity as you move around the habitat.

    Another Chassis Conundrum????

    Sounds like a hard look at the EC Core chassis are in order. Probably more than $30K over your Big 3, but would meet your length, (potentially) shipping, and international parts sourcing criteria.

    Nimbl Vehicles build thread

    I remember seeing this a while back and thought it was an interesting configuration. Though I would probably put a storage box or tire carrier space behind the cab to move the overhang back a couple of feet.

    Nimbl Vehicles build thread

    I'm curious about a Nimble (or frankly anything using a N/S queen bed configuration over cab) on a Regular Cab truck. I'm not seeing anyone doing this configuration and seems like the shorter wheel base would be a benefit. Any thoughts on this? Are there DMV considerations regarding overhang...

    ACELA 6X6 WITH SLRV EXPEDITION BOX NEW BUILD

    I'm curious about how large the gap between cab and habitat is and what you are planning to use to span it? It seems larger than other builds I have seen (pictures only mind you) on other M107X chassis.

    Keeping critters from eating your wires?

    When we have gone on surf trips to Baja, we throw rubber snakes under our vehicles to scare off rodents. I also use them under my car in our parking garage. Works like a charm and kind of entertaining to see a mouse sneak under the truck and then scurry off in a panic when they see the "snake"...

    Interesting cutout...is that for a recessed canopy?

    EC FX vs. GXV Patagonia

    How is the 4WD accomplished with the GXV K370 vs. what E/C is doing? I also wonder if you would have similar maneuverability between the platforms if you build a smaller (17') habitat Patagonia.

    EC FX vs. GXV Patagonia

    Not trying to start any arguments, but would love to hear/read about people's thoughts comparing these two platforms. With the cost of the new EC not being that far off from a K370 Patagonia, I'm curious what folks see as the benefits and trade-offs of one platform over the other. Ready, set, go!

    New Defender Rage/Hate Thread

    The more I read this thread, the more I come to realize that it wouldn't exist if they would have named it ANYTHING other than Defender.

    Big custom camper sightings

    Spotted this rig in my MIL's neighborhood in San Diego this morning. :) Cool hood ornament.

    ACELA 6X6 WITH SLRV EXPEDITION BOX NEW BUILD

    Saw this video a bit back talking about Safiery and SLRV. Thought this would be an interesting game changer.
