2 weeks from now we going to put the rv on the roro ship from galveston to antwerp.
Because this summer we are touring europe.
Having lived in Europe for 8+ years.....

1. Make sure you MOD your tires for Z rated ones - no speed limits on the Autobhans, and you KNOW you wanna pull that beast at 130MPH!!

2. Be aware European roads were sized for carriages and Knights on Horseback...plan accordingly (i.e., you are gonna LOVE 12' high bridges and 6' wide roads

3. Pesky 120V to 220V conversion . Make sure you install the 22,000W Transformer Mod

Have fun, be safe, drive fast, and WE NEED PICTS!!

Oh, and 6 Actual just commented, enjoy the $10/Gal Gas or $16/gal diesel depending
