    Big Rig Expedition Vehicles for RTW travel

    Hi Mark, I haven't yet been out to visit, but it is definitely part of my longer term plan. As of right now it's still a bit premature as I'm trying to get my investments lined up to get more capital so I can make a clearer picture of the future and where we want to be. Right now without...

    TerraLiner:12 m Globally Mobile Beach House/Class-A Crossover w 6x6 Hybrid Drivetrain

    Slingshot Hi Biotect, I don't think I can really speak as any case of expert to what science and technology separates the Slingshot from the rest of the competitive products out there. But that being said I can try to speak to the man, Dean Kamen, as I believe in him 100%. I've been a...

    TerraLiner:12 m Globally Mobile Beach House/Class-A Crossover w 6x6 Hybrid Drivetrain

    Biotect, I think that a better solution to your water usage concern is recycling. Assuming the Terraliner has water purification onboard to take water from any source, just use it to recycle your gray water tank. I believe they mention this on the Bliss Mobil website for their expedition...

    Hi Biotect, I have been following your thread regularly for the past year and a half or so, and I'm anxiously awaiting an update! Any chance you'll be sharing your completed design project any time soon? I would love to see it. Your project has been quite the inspiration to me to actually...

    The little Freightliner that could

    Can you get a picture of one of the old wheels and tires rolled along side of the new mounted ones for a size comparison? That would be great, and it really looks fantastic so far!

    Big Rig Expedition Vehicles for RTW travel

    Roadschooling Overland I've spent much of the past year researching and learning what's possible in terms of world travel, expedition campers, destinations and whether or not my family would make it as full time travelling nomads. As part of that research to see whether or not the 5 of us...

    Shachagra- Family of 5 traveles Europe and Turkey, International 7500

    Doug, Any chance you are planning to bring Shachagra up to the Overland Expo East in North Carolina this October. Your build and trip to Europe with the family were an inspiration to me, and I would love the opportunity to get to meet you and explore your rig first hand at the expo. After...

    I feel another build coming on.....

    I think that sounds like a build that I would love to read about, so my vote would be to go for it. I looked into getting a hydraulic drive system, EZ Trac, added to a RWD Freightliner or International truck like yours for the basis of an expedition camper build. It was actually recommended to...

    Big Rig Expedition Vehicles for RTW travel

    Charlie, that unit is certainly amazing, if it had just another bed or two, it might tempt me to move to canada to import and register it. :-) I do really like the idea of the lifting roof for increased room, but in this model in particular though it seems to me to be a poor use of all that...

    Big Rig Expedition Vehicles for RTW travel

    @julius, thanks for the links and dimensional information. I really do like that unicat 8x8, and I had no idea that you could buy them that way new from MAN. For some reason I always assumed the 8x8's were some type of government military surplus vehicles refreshed from Cold War missile...

    Big Rig Expedition Vehicles for RTW travel

    Thanks for the link to truckconversions.net, I did check them out a while ago, but will do some more digging now that I've refined what I am interested in. As to the other comments, I definitely want to do a global vehicle, now I just need to figure out the best way to get there form here for...

    Big Rig Expedition Vehicles for RTW travel

    Thanks for the response sunraider, but as much as I would love to have a mercedes zetros 6x6, or even a giant MAN double cab, I am pretty sure that neither of those are available to me in the US. Would your choice against freightliner be due to the lack of international service outlets, or more...

    Big Rig Expedition Vehicles for RTW travel

    Hi all, I'm fairly new around here, but I've spent the past few months reading and soaking up as much information as I could, but a few things still some up as questions for me. As a bit of background on me, I've got three kids, Ages 6, 4, and 1. Currently we homeschool the oldest in 1st...
