Looks great. Quick question, why do you decrease air pressure in the tires for towing in the sand?

Tires with lower air pressure will "float" better on sand and less tendency to dig in. Just remember that lower pressure also reduces load carrying capacity so don't drive those under inflated tires very far or very fast.

We even build wood walkways over the sand dunes so the public can walk to the beaches
Some beaches are even "CLOSED" to the public during the nesting period of the pipers on the beaches and dunes. they build their nests right on the sand and pebbles

Our beaches here have boardwalks & authorized crossings to protect the dunes. During the summer months there is several miles of one beach closed to everything but foot traffic due to turtle nesting. They won't even allow horses.

Not only is it great because it helps the turtles but it gets very peaceful because most people are lazy and don't want to walk more than 50' away from the access point!!

I'm sure I don't need to tell you, but my advice is wash that chassis good when you leave. The salt will eat it up fast.

Best thing about beach camping is you can dump your grey water.
