    Leech has been making a living off of bikes for almost as long as Morrison has been making a living off of skis.

    God you are fucking stupid. He is not flashing his name around to get bro-bra recognition/fame. He is running a business, just like an electrician/plumber, and that is his work truck with his biz name on it. No different, dumbass...

    And his current company -- which yes is named after him -- has been around for 7 years. Pretty sure paint dries in that time.

    $100k vans just scream DWEEB to me. Maybe my opinion will change one day.
    For me, ski soul is about the pursuit of stoke. Different people dig different aspects of the pursuit. I get it. In other adventures, I love driving the metaphorical cheaper rig and it adds to the gratification. In this adventure, the price of the rig isn't calculated in the ski soul equation.

    Different strokes.

    In other news, this thread is out of hand with all the philosophical bullshit. Drive what you drive and rock on.

    Pretty amazing how bent out of shape people get for someone making fun of a guy for plastering his name all over his RV. Do you guys follow this dude to the trailhead so he can regale you with stories of his adventures? I'm just not that into shameless self promotion of that fashion. I also make fun of lawyers who have cheesy ass commercial on late night TV for the record.

    But hey, we have to agree to disagree here. Just expect that if you plaster your name all over your shit, you will be made fun of by me. Deal with it.

    However, I think the rig itself is pretty sweet. I have no idea who the guy is, and no problem with him personally, just think that I would probably come up with a name for my company that wasn't based on my birth name. Whatever, he got roasted on PB for running a Hemi.

    It is only because you are fundamentally misunderstanding the guy and what he is doing. If he was just some amateur youtuber with slightly above average skills and he plastered his rig with his channel name, etc, then, yeah, perhaps he deserves mocking. But, Ryan Leech has been a pro for years and has had full parts in many of the biggest MTB movies (none in recent memory, but still). He makes his living now by doing skills clinics so when people see him and/or his rig at a trail head, they can get his site/contact info, etc, if they are interested (how else would they find out about him?). I don't think he should be crapped on for that. Guy's gotta eat.

    Damn, look at his movie credits.

    Didn't watch, I'm sure it is impressive, but it is still just riding a bike. If Danny Macaskill was driving around with a little RV on his truck in the western US that was plastered with his name, I'd still laugh at him. Because it is funny.

    Ok, fair enough. I'm guessing no higher education with you- huh?

    Vans are nice.
    Truck campers are nice.
    Since I sold my truck camper, I am going to build a custom off-road winter-able off-road trailer. Gonna go solid axle trailer, with an Alaskan 8ft on it. Trying to keep it at 2500lbs. 1k for trailer weight, 2500 for camper loaded. Stay tuned....coming your way in the next two years.

    Saw an article that sportsmobile is continuing the e350 builds by creating their own body for the chassis cab like any other rv manufacturer. Nice builds with solid front axles.

    Yes, I saw one at the Outdoor Van Expo at Meadows a few weeks ago. The body is fiberglass but otherwise they look just like the classic ford E350 van. Pretty sweet. These folks are demoing one right now.

    Some of the pics I’ve seen make it look like the body might be a hair wider then the old vans. Is that accurate?

    Yes. According to Expo 1" added to either side of the exterior, netting 4" of additional interior width (somehow). More here:

    Thanks- they got the other two inches from the interior I guess?

    It's about what I had to do. I actually left the trailer up there as I had no desire to dig it out and was going to be back three days later anyway. Boy that was a job getting it out of there safely...had to literally peel it away from the wall. Some of you may recognize that second photo from Halley O'Brian's report this winter. ;-)

    Ski RV's, who's sleeping in parking lots?

    New trailer owner here. I’ve been wondering about getting a set of studded tires on it for winter or should I just plan to chain up when having road conditions?

    When we chose trailer vs other RV options we did accept the trade off of snow ability but do want to make some winter outings.

    We have had no issues here in Oregon with my Chevy Silverado pulling our 24' trailer. I have chains for it but have never felt the need for them. I have thought about getting all-season tires on it just for a little peace of mind but to this point I have been amazed and that is with about 15 trips in the snow with it with a 2 hour drive of which a 1/3 was in snow and deep winter conditions. I have all-season tires on my truck(Bliz).
