    I found it. Looks like they got about $25,000 for it. My wife would have killed me.


    The interior actually looks pretty good. Not good enough for me to live in, alone and divorced and homeless, permanently though, which is what my wife would have suggested, had I bought it.

    Errands today. City market early & the lot was pretty empty, but Natural Grocers was jammin, traction pads, roto pack fuel-canisters, rod cases et al. Hit the car wash, behind me was a new Lexus landcrusier equiv, older couple form Texas. Had aftermarket rims, aggro tires, rear hitch gear rack and a roof rack with a 5 gal gas container strapped to it, which was totally leaking onto the roof. Fun to laugh at the overland crowd, but at least they appreciate keeping shit tight. Then I stopped to fuel up, next pump over was a dude whose rig was photo worthy for this thread. Couldn't calculate his points cause I didn't have a scientific calculator with me

    We use wag-bags for poop and the trasharoo saves us from having to keep shit bags in the camper.

    That alone is worth the $45.
    Enjoy having rodents/bears/raccoons scattering your shit around your campsite.

    Just get a big pVc tube and build a groover, strap it underneath to the frame. Or bolt a 20mm ammo can to the back bumper.

    ^^^what Falcon said--- and for about 200 bucks you can get a liner for that ammo can that hooks right up to an RV dump. It wont take that many poops to pay for itself and the odor is minimal even if youre traveling next to it on a boat all day long.

    It looks like you could have stayed on the road but its not a road. It also looks like you coulda found an anchor point more starboard but no, it was a pipeline right of way. You couldnt even barely get the PS to orient the wheels in the correct direction with all the shit built up behind the driver side front wheel.Click image for larger version.

    Camped overnight in the Mt Hood Timberline parking lot, the scores I could have racked up would easily pass triple digits with just the rigs there at 2am.

    Ahhh to be clear, we have a couple different groover setups as we have a rafting rig too. (Weve been running rivers for ~20 years longer than weve had a legit camper van!)

    For extended trips we will carry a real toilet system in the van. Also, Ive been on enough trips to know that ALL groovers (ecosafe included) stink a bit.

    This time of year we pretty much leave Friday afternoon and back Sunday. Im not going to break out the groover for 3-5 loads. Fill the bag in the morning, and its in a dumpster in ~36hours. We have a gamma lid bucket or ammo can we keep them in while at camp. Then when are back on the road,I want to put the bags (maybe the bucket?) in the trasharoo. I dont intend to have wag bags stewing back there. Just when driving. And if a raccoon wants my shit sack at 65mph, hes welcome to it.

    I havent put this plan into action yet. But the trasharoo sounds good for recycling and firewood too.

    Im no overlander though, I dont even have traction plates, and drive a Prius to work.

    This would be the ticket. But I have (gasp) stock bumper. Any cheap way to carry a groover or ammo can on the back passenger side door would be ideal.

    Whats the sprinter sticker equivalent for a punisher skull sticker on a lifted jeep?

    An outline of the state their supposedly from? Outline of Lake Tahoe or Mr Rainier?

    A mad river glenn ski it if you can sticker?

    A Yeti or Santa Cruz sticker?

    Choice stickers should be worth points..

    Scientists now have decisive molecular evidence that humans and chimpanzees once had a common momma and that this lineage had previously split from monkeys.

    Damn this thread. Now all I see is snorkels and roof top tents/overbuilt racks with landscaping implements strapped to them.

    Boat deck tilts down. Hydraulic arms about a third of the way back. Guy fabs a fifth wheel camper to a garbage truck and tows around one of the most prominent (and difficult to import) vehicle in the world. That is an interesting setup with probably a good story behind it.

    Whoever owns that setup has to be a certified, grade A kook. That's unique enough to be cool. I would argue it doesn't belong in this thread: it defies the "as different as we are, we're all the same" trope that is vanlife/overlanding.
