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

    We have a promaster with the bed sideways and my 6’ tall husband fits.

    I think there’s is a bit overbuilt up inside though. Ours is not as fancy inside but I dig having the extra space.

Also the finished build has a ton of exposed sheet metal they didn’t line or insulate. Not a real 4 season design.

    Most US RV industry is oriented toward KOA campground types so you end up with designs that fail the 4 season skier / climber / tgr dentist, especially when it comes to water and plumbing.
    I went to a BLM Backcountry Byway dedication ceremony outside of Vegas long ago and the BLM had these fucking 4x4 RVs with big burly offroad tread tires. I was like 'Holy Shit!'
    Have never seen anything like them again.

    If they could/would sell that for $42K USD it would be a market changer.

    I dig the desolate playa.
    Is that the Steens in the background?

    Try a winter in canmore with 8 weeks of -35 to -40C and a $300 truck camper with too many holes and a thin layer of ice on every wall and ceiling apart from the cabover walls/ceiling,2 bikes and cat all on a 91 yota. Once you move up to an insulated c class with auto heat, fridge/freezer, capt chairs and storage theres no going back. Heat and and lounge area isnt that hard to get together and its a world of difference. A home needs that shit

    Picked this up a couple weeks ago. Doing some shake down trips on the weekends to make sure things are working ok. Little bouncy on the ride but working on that as we go. Pretty stable on the road side to side even in a cross wind. Looking to storm chase since we don’t have a desire to fly any time soon Click image for larger version.
