i still think the suburban gorilla from xtreme 4x4 is the ultimate tow rig. 785 horse 1300 ftlb twin turbo duramax, hummer body conversion, 16,000 pound winches and a nice trailer to haul the toy with. sucks i can't find completed pictures of it.

I dont care much for this companys paint jobs but their coaches are sweet!

Their enclosed trailers have their own drive wheels on the tongue. You can manuever them into tight places without the tow vehicle.
Why do I have the feeling those are out of my price range:tonka:

Well, not a great picture, hard to see in the background, but the best one I have. This is what I use for now.

My dream setup:
Ironhide from the new Transformers movie (lifted GMC Kodiak), gooseneck trailer with camper on the front and my Jeep on the back. Simple, effective, and can make it places a lot of the rigs posted here could never dream of.

I have always wanted a Vuck(van+truck hybrid), ya know those dually vans with back cutoff and the have a fifth wheel hitch in bed. Theyre are som many cool posibilities.



Had semi w/53' low moving van style trailer for a year, was really cool. Have 26' motor home w/454 awesome for anytrip except it costs .50 a mile 2 drive. I just got a f-350 w/ 7.3 psd, I think that will be the hauler of choice this season of playing.

I've seen plenty of people have to venture out a ways with their tow rig/trailer for recovery runs when the wheelin rig broke, plus some trailheads and campgrounds aren't exactly easy access. Or maybe I just have trouble driving anything with less than 35s so I'm coming up with every excuse I can.

I sell the Optima line at work, just sold a 42' coach and a 24' stacker trailer to a guy out in Colorado, I think these are much better than the renegade due to the all aluminum construction. These are sweet, Let me know if anyone wants me to order one

Matt












You can see more pictures of the Optima at these links.

You just won't be able to drive it in some states that have shorter length limits. Some states have 60' max. 65' in Michigan though.
