This is a great four season adventure mobile. Only selling because our family is growing beyond the rig’s capabilities. So, we’re moving to a full-size configuration to better accommodate everyone. Feel free to reach out for any questions. We even wrote a blog detailing the build and will happily share the link.

We’re also happy to share the real pros and cons that we’ve learned with each of our builds along the way. Now, get out there and start your own adventures.

A couple more photos and information. We’re the original owners and have service records from the very beginning, including gas records. Also, we forgot to add the mileage. Last fill up we hit 189,497. Well maintained and ready for many more miles of fun adventures


Wow,, Congrats on the Bison!! thats a great looking rig, if your ever in the Sacramento area,, would love to check it out ;-) GLWS
We get down to Sacramento from time to time. Feel free to checkout our website and send an email to make things easier to stay in contact.

The Bison survived a 1900mi shakedown trip from Oklahoma to Lake Tahoe. We like the option to build out ourselves. After all, we dialed in the Tacoma with what works well. Might as well do the same thing with the Bison. What may work well for someone in the desert may not work so well for someone in the snowy mountains.
