Spendy, but this makes me daydream about selling everything and hitting the road for a couple of years. :cool:

I saw that one, pretty cool. Not sure I could pull the trigger on that of course it all depends on how rich you are.

Wow. that's pretty ugly if you ask me. Selling everything and hitting the road, that I understand. Doing it in that thing, not a chance.

Yeah, cool factor is there, comfort... not so much.

Can you say Earthromer?:thumb: Even Sportsmobile! :D

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, right? I would take a nice FJ40 over a 100 series any day.

This thread (http://forum.ih8mud.com/fj45-owners-club/245935-j45-german-buschtaxi-treffen-08-a.html) has some nicely done examples of 45 series campers.

The day we sell the 40 and trailer is the day I chop up a 100 series and do something similar to this.

This is in my top 3 list of builds before moving on to green pastures.:thumb:

Martin. I think you misunderstand me. I love the 40series. That link has some excellent examples of well built campers. But some plywood box on top and a couple foam pads doesn't do it for me especially not for $35000. Here's my set up. Cost about that. pic from this sat.

I know what you mean. ;)

I like the idea of a 45 camper. Not specifically that (hugely) overpriced BC rig. If I were seriously going to roadtrip, I would want to build it myself anyway starting with a nice, rust-free troopie of some sort.

4/4/2009 San Rafael Swell. Site for the CM09 overnight. Went there to escape the snow and mountains. Snowed 8" and was fricking freezing. Gave the furnace in the camper a good workout.

after actually spending over a week in a similar vehicle I can honestly say I did not find it to be the most ideal set up. Below the vehicle we rented in AU.

Details? when did you take that trip? What parts of Aus did you see? :cool:

Right now, my setup is a 40, a tent and sleeping bag, so a 70 series camp-mobile looks pretty posh in comparison. :)

We were there spring of 2007. During CM07 actually. If you search I think I posted a thread of the trip. But we rented that rig out of Alice Springs for a week. Did the normal stuff. Also ran one down the Gold Coast. In hind sight I wish I would have got the 105 series with the roof top tent.
