We'll see, but remember, a vagina around your dick is not considered riding gear.

Absolutely nothing like a Vegas run unless you plan on just hanging out in camp by yourself once you get there, because everyone will be out riding dirt all day. The only similarity is that you'll be on a bike.

I've decided on the WR. I spent today doing some basic maintenance and looking things over. Last thing will be to put new handle bars on, and I'll be ready to rock.

I also did a test fit with the camper.



Yup, I'm gonna be comfy.

Sweet rig, take it easy going uphill towing with that thing. I had an 09, towing a rhino on a small trailer, coming out of the salton sea, and it kicked a rod at about 70mph uphill.

Love the setup though, hate the 3.8l mini van motor

Suppose if I had the minivan motor I'd be concerned. This is a '12. And it has already been "tested".



This was after the 3100 mile break in drive with 400 miles of that off road. I've only towed a couple thousand miles with it thus far, but I'm pretty certain the Jeep will be just fine.

Yeah, we're pretty happy with it. It's a Fleetwood Evolution E1. They actually don't make them any longer and this one is an '05. I think Jayco and one other manufacturer still make the "off road" version like this one. It basically is a regular pop up with a spring over. The real benefit in at least the Fleetwood ones is that they are a fully boxed frame.

We were looking long and hard on how to do family camping with the dog(s) and little guy. The Jeep can handle all the passengers, but no room for gear. I thought about a roof rack and/or a roof top tent, but those cost a mint and you are still sleeping in a tent and the economy would hurt the refrigerator shape of the Jeep pretty bad.

I debated on fabricating my own "adventure trailer" with a roof top tent or buying one, but the adventure trailers out there very quickly end up costing more than we paid for this guy and don't have provision for a bike(s) and I just don't have the time to actually build one.

Having a heater, fridge, water supply (including hot), grille, and stove already there, and it was pretty simple, especially with that tray up front and what the used ones are going for.

There are bigger ones out there in the E2 and E3, that handle more bikes up front but they start getting bigger than I want to tow behind the Jeep. For our needs right now, this one is perfect.
