That's exactly what we said, they are adding a new building to move their office more towards the front, we figure a year or two gives them plenty of time to add something else

Not in an RV park, but it may show up in one! Three of us had never seen one of these before on a light truck! Note the retractable axle. Good truck for a heavy 5ver???
Actually spotted in the parking lot of Mega Coney Island just south of Flint MI.

Definitely a "custom build" on a 3500 GMT400 (OBS) platform. No record of any GM RPO's or SPO's for this configuration.

Interesting to try this in fall with limited day light hours. High summer would have produced better charging conditions and he is traveling at night anyhow so heat wouldn't be a bug issue

??? Looks more to me (I could be wrong) like a custom build on a three quarter ton GM. Look at the front wheels/hubs. Not 1 ton hubs?

I don't do solar but I think his initial plan had a flaw. He say the Tesla has a 80KWhr battery pack so he expected his 6.4KW solar array to fully charge it in a day with 12-13 hours of sunlight (12*6.4 = 76.8). Correct me if I'm wrong, but even in late June I didn't think you could get anywhere near 12 hours of full power from your array.

You would have to be out there every 15-30 minutes rotating the array and changing the tilt angle (Azimuth and Elevation for people who served in the military).

So you do this all day (12 hours), and then you drive 6 hours at night...When do you sleep?

Exactly. He oversimplified all his calculations and didn't account for any variables it would appear.

Either way summer sun would have helped a ton.

Tin Can Tourist at our winter park hosting a rally, great group with festive decorations and they even host a open house to look inside, we saw a 50 & 55 Spartan, early 60's Holiday Rambler, a small Scotty and a Fisher which I never heard of but all were very nice!!!!

My cousin, Deborah, owns an RV park in NM. She and her friends are fond of older, tiny campers. They regularly throw a "Trailer Trash Bash."

Hennessey makes 6x6 four wheel drive pickups in both half ton and 3/4 ton versions in Chevy/Ford and Dodge Rams.

https://robbreport.com/motors/cars/h...on-1234675042/

And in 1994, Chrysler Motors produced an experimental 3/4 ton Ram with the V-10 engine 4x4 with 6 wheel drive...called the T-Rex. However, it never went into production but sill and awesome truck. It was on display and actually ran in a hill climb at Sturgis South Dakota during the annual motorcycle rally, 1994 or 5 - don't recall
