Are there any clubs in Illinois?

Does anyone have anything to say about a 2009 Red River M925?

I would love to hear your thoughts since I just bought one on a wild hair.

I am gambling that when my EUC comes in I will just drive to Indianapolis pick it up and drive home...I will call my country companies guy to get insurance - but I am sure I am missing something....to excited to see it coming though.

Show up at Haspin. If this is your first EUC item, you might have to drive your DD to the rally though.

Howdy, dlieber!

Hope you make it back in one piece from Indianapolis, but I would check the truck with a fine tooth comb as GL rarely represents the trucks as being in the actual shape they say they are...generally there are a lot of surprises!:shock: However, as the sole Unimog S owner in Springfield, I wish you well and it'll be worth seeing another MV here!:beer:

When I go back to visit family near Peoria, over the years I have discovered I have more MV's in my yard than their entire county, and probably including the surrounding counties as well. I asked my brother in Metamora, he said no clubs that he has ever heard of around there. (Oddly enough, a fellow Steel Soldier member lives literally darn-near right next door to my niece near Metamora!)

I'm down in Mt. Vernon, IL. There are several MV guys around here. Let us know how it all turns out. I just came back through Indy a week ago. Went to a rally and show over there. Big fun and lots of Diesel!

I already have a few 2.5 tons . Would consider another if the price was right , but if I got another truck it would probally be a 5 ton tractor .

I just bought my first deuce and my insurance agent of 30 years tells me that Progressive will NOT insure it at any cost, no tickets or accidents. How does anyone one on this thread that drives one insure their truck?

At the risk of taking this the wrong way search will bring up lots of threads on insurance. It is one of the most (or least, the way I look at it) popular subjects.

has anyone taken an mv to the badlands in attica indiana? most of the trails should handle at least a deuce, or a 5 ton for that matter, it is fairly centralized to most of us in illinois, and to those in indiana. would be a great place for a rally for those who dont want to go all the way to haspin.

I have been thinking out putting together a small trip out to the bad lands to see if the trails could handle the trucks, its something the indy platoon has been talking about to help even up some of the travel time for the IL crew. we are thinking maybe a late sept or early nov trip a run out there saturday morning come home saturday night. its about a two to three hour run out there for us with a couple rest and stretch stops but would be wurth the trip out there. I'll make the trip if I can get anther five ton out there for me or two deuce. In case I get stuck.

The last time I was at the Badlands they only allowed short wheelbase vehicles like Jeeps and no buggies or pickup trucks but it has been a couple years since I've been there.
