I know as a kid, kids would drive their farm tractors to high school. But, that was more idiot kids than actual means of transportation.

Though, most of my life- I've lived in happy suburbia where you don't see this stuff.

Geez, I thought you were coming through this way but I didn't know when. Was hoping to stop and say hello but don't suppose you're still in the area. I recall you had mentioned that you would be staying at 1000 Trails at some point on your journey and we live just a few miles from there.

By the way my neighbor just sold his sand rail and it looked almost exactly like that one. Could be...

I'm actually here until Friday morning. Site C-86.

Just starting a fire now- you should be able to get here by smoke signals alone.

Did you get a manufacturer at all? I know there was one major manufacturer who was/is offering a deck option.
Drove through there again the other day. The rig is a Heartland Road Warrior RT. It's just as pretty every time I see it.

It could very well be the Road Warrior 420. Looks pretty sharp!

I stopped to talk to the lady there, and she told me it has TWO bathrooms, and a house-style fridge among its various amenities. She said they are LIVING in it for the next 2 years while stationed at the base.
Ours is 42' long and comes in at 51' when I lower the rear deck. Looks like a toy hauler but its a rear living room with a full width sliding glass doors.

What is the weight limit for that deck?

I see no supports for it in the pic.

Sticking out over the Grand Canyon? I don't think so!

But in certain places, that would be real nice.
