Default New Job

Hi folks,
I've been holding off posting anything, guess I didn't want to jinx it, but it's been 3 months and things look good, so here goes:

Check out my new job! www.earthroamer.com

It's been a steep learning curve, but it's a lot of fun. They're complicated vehicles that take "RV's" to a whole new level. I figured the folks on here would find them interesting, let me know if you have any questions. That's what I'm here for.
-Matt

I'd love to, but we're selling them so fast we sold our demo! There will be one at Cruise Moab though, so make sure you stop and say hi. He pulls an FJ40, and just finished the Roundup in Texas.

Thanks Uncle Ben. I'm having a good time and sold two last week, so far so good. At this price, you don't have to sell to many!

I noticed your 62 was surrounded by those things in the official member's rigs thread

Robbie and I got the cook's tour today. Very cool trucks. Maybe when the Toyota heavy duty pickups are available, they'll have more platform options?

Dyna Trucks, made by Toyota.

Matt, I tried and tried to get Bill to come to a meeting and give us a presentation back when his series was being published in one of the off road mags and all he had was the original, built on a Dodge platform (I believe he uses F450s now?). His schedule and our meeting schedule just couldn't collide. Maybe you can help out there?

Congrats on your new gig!

One of our club members just bought one.

Here he is in Katemcy unloading his 40 a few weeks ago

sorry for the big pic, it's on the right side.

Yeah, I'd love to see a Toyota platform. The current model will never be, I just don't see Toyota making a platform that will safely haul 15,000 pounds and still have 10,000 towing capacity.

Bill is pretty swamped, but if we ever have a demo truck again, (will be at least a year) we'll get one out to a meeting for everybody to poke around in.

In the meantime, make sure all the Rising Sun people at CM say hello to Vince from Minnesota, he tows a nice 40 behind his.
