Cory that is a awesome project, are you going to finish it out like a toterhome with all the amenities? I've toyed with similar ideas. I love that its 6x6 drive. Does it have air ride? will you be able to cruise at 70-75? Can't wait to see it in person...not mention the new buggies.

When your hope is 6mpg...ouch.

Although can't beat having everything all in one, tow rig, trailer, camper, and 6wd to wheel it right past the easy shit.

Boom trucks like that fully loaded with a set of panels will pull down about 3-4mpg, and about 6-8 mpg empty, what do you think an actual semi with a trailer pulls down?

Shit, did you ever tow anything that was heavy enough to warrant any of the diesel trucks you and your wife have owned and calculated what your actual mileage was?

first of all thanks for the compliments. Yes the inside will be pimped out . Went to Johnsons by three rivers and got EVERYTHING for cheep. taking the auto out and installing the 13 speed ,numbers say 65-70 at 1800 rpm's. Only bad thing it does not have air ride (has rubber block susp on rear ) but is pretty long . It will have to be ok. Top of roof is 13'3'', Legal but will have to pay attention
