We are Heading out for our next leg, 5000 miles est. East coast to Midwest to Colorado to Montana-(Canada if we have time) will hit the Overland Expo in Colorado on Aug 26-28 Loveland. We plan to meet up with our 6X6 buddies in their MANN TGS 33.540 ...we will shoot some pictures, as I pull him out of ditches...
Let's see some other rigs out there.
Here are some interior pix.. and the bed I'm sleeping on for the next 2 months. ;)

Happy Trails builders.

Interesting and unique layout. Looks like a professional interior designer did it. Did ya'll do a slide out?

IF you dont like the light coming in around the ends of the blinds you can cap them even give them a ledge to zero out on . Looks great ?47E0E242-EACD-4949-A768-47F299F1B18C.png

We thought the side guides take up to much window—or we would have build them.
we leave the blinds up most of the time, the windows at 7 feet already have a lot of privacy..

no trailer this trip,
I will flat tow my Ford side by side....

A highly overpaid Southern Brunette professional interior decorator/plumber/Tiler did it.
I couldn’t pay the bill, so I married her.

Have you seen the blinds like were talking about but have another bar on the bottom that lets the light in but filters out the glares and some heat and gives you a little privacy .

Im real lucky on not having to travel very far . ive got the sweetest spot off in the middle of 300 acres with this tree that must be 400 yrs old its so huge and i park under the edge of it and have a little bonfire and at night you can almost touch the stars and its 10 miles round trip so i save alot of money on fuel and theres a big creek we go catch a few fish for the night grillin ! And all the pictures are in my build thread thought you already saw them cause you commented on them .

And thats as close as anyone gets to my super secret camping spot !! Not nair a soul will be parked beside me when i wake up nor will i even be able to see another soul from that spot ! No one to hear the screaming or complain and if you need to run thru the jungle naked at 3am have at it ! And the cattle are like attack dogs on steroids if you dont belong there ! And yes that mudhole in the picture is where the naked mud wrestling World Championships occur usally about sundown on any givin saturday night so you understand the need for discretion and secrecy !
