    Exactly; some people use shit and some people dont. Seems like theres room in the thread for honest appreciation of people going and getting some instead of pure disdain. If not, this thread is gonna get tired quickly....

    I thought the point of the thread was to call out people who never take the shovel, traction boards, rotopax etc off the vehicle. Fine with me if they want to strap all sorts of shit on while they're on a road trip. But they look foolish with it on driving around town all the time.

    Didnt read the whole thread but this is an easy win for Boulder mags. I see at least half dozen high-point trucks at school drop off every morning, then another half dozen on the 5 mile drive home. Toyota and Lexus are the GOTOS of choice around these parts.

    If the shit looks like it gets used, or at least has been used, fine. But pristine implements on a built vehicle without a scratch or even any dirt on it deserves a call out.

    for the record, the bucket seats, console and shifter make Porsches a less than optimal place to get yer dick sucked.

    The fact that they are 2 states and at least 1,100 miles from their home state, out near Joshua Tree, does give this theory some credibility.

    They are not selling ski racks. They are selling common sense tests. Eat the rich.

    In the name of Truckee California, I disagree. While some of our stuff gets used, we are the posergrounds for the entire Bay Area.

    Our Range Rover/tesla/sprinter density is second to none, currently.

    Keep Tahoe GOTOS ?

    Quoted for truth, however persistence on the passenger side can lead to success. Know what else causes trouble? Freeway construction. True story, I was cruising across the salt flats on the way to wendover for an autocross in my old mr2 turbo, and despite the bucket seats, large center console (hehe) and stick shift, my passenger was doing great. Just fantastic, when things took a turn for the worse. Freeway construction! Cones appeared out of nowhere, lane narrowed onto the rumble strip and shoulder. Lane shifts, cones, ack. Fail.

    I guess I don't get what the problem with a box on a Porsche is. Fast fun car to drive, ya got a box for when you ski, take it off when yer back home.
    Neighbor of mine a long time ago would mount the ski rack on his car in November, go skiing once in the winter, and take the thing off in May. moron
    Well maybe I'm the faggot America

    Hmm, I would assign it 1 point for the chunky tires/lift, 1 for the brushguard, 1 for the roofrack over the cab, and 1 for whatever that is hanging on the back. It does seem more a Gorp in the Truck or Sprinter rather than Gorp on the Truck or Sprinter though.

    Sorry I. The picture they had come out and were in it. There were traction plates. Gas/water cans on the back. Along with a big metal lock box. Winch up front with clean shovel. It appears to be a well appointed 4x4 motor home

    Oh man, sorry about that. I underestimated your points substantially!

    Mitsubishi Fuso chassis Earthcruiser. Not many yrs ago they cost $250k, now the #covid #vanlife trend has them starting at 370k I believe.

    Not really designed for 65+ mph cruising across N Nevada etc. Mitsubishi is pulling out of North American truck market but that announcement didnt seem to dent the earth cruiser pricing.

    You know, I thought there was a mercedes benz logo buried behind the winch. But I believe you are right. A Mitsubishi! Couple driving looked to be in their 60's. Flip flops all-around

    Looks like the EXP which has a toilet inboard, but external shower.

    A former client resided two blocks from EarthCruiser's Galactic HQ. There were some amazing models in their lot from time-time.

    MTT - Were spare tires showing on the back? That seems to be standard configuration, then the boxes & cans get added behind those. But with all of that, you have to put bikes, yaks, etc on the roof. Which on that popup roof, presents its own set of challenges and cost.

    I think you can still pick up a base FX (incl GORP) for less than $300K.
    I like how they position these as an alternative to a cabin in the woods, except you can go more places
    Here's a gallery of the interiors. https://earthcruiser.com/vehicles/earthcruiser/
    Seems a little more cramped than a tiny house.

    They are coming out with a camper mounted on an F350 (or comparable GM or Ram) chassis.
