    nice rig, congrats. What made you decide to go with RV versus towable? We have been going back and forth on trying to decide for about a year.

    I don't have room at my place either, luckily a good friend has room at their place.

    The main reason we decided on this is I would have likely had to upgrade my truck to a one ton to be able to pull a trailer that could hold the buggy/jeep. It will also be nice for my wife to use areas of the RV while driving. We also considered a smaller 5th wheel and then double pull with the buggy/jeep behind it. Each has pros and cons.

    Not quite done yet but thought I would throw in a little before/after of bike. The new wind screen is bigger than original to help with wind and has additional piece that is adjustable, one pic it is down the other is all the way up. Apparently during freezing temps the bank sensor failed. Had tested bike while waiting on new fairing and it was working but after getting fairing and few other things done had no power to fuel pump. Bank sensor is under front fairing so it all had to come back off to access. Should have it back to street ready by this weekend.

    Say "customized trailer" here and we immediately go to 4x4 camping trailer. Each hobby/trade has their own "trailer" type:

    It isn't as comfortable as Mike's new RV looks to be, but we picked up our own version of wilderness comfort this week. First use was out at Pawnee Buttes and it served us well.

    Had a couple actual campfires this past week:


    it's a bit of a story that started last Sept when my mother passed, but we ended up with a camper rental we never used, and the rental company was kind enough to give us a credit for later use this winter before the spring/summer business picked up. So we took a week to head south to kodachrome basin SP (UT), but stopped along the way for a couple nights near grand junction, CO. Skied at powderhorn out near GJ and then brian head down in southwest UT. As many of you probably know, my wife and I are pretty simple tent campers etc, so the rpod camper is a small adventure in itself...even though it was 20F most nights, enjoyed a warm night's sleep and hot coffee without being layered up with down puffy etc...pretty luxurious. A pic of jen skiing overlooking the utah desert, and a pic of evening sunset and camper.



    After two days in Colo, we spent 4 days in Kodachrome/Grand Staircase Escalante area. A few years ago we drove all of Cottonwood Rd, but there is a lot more to explore... Did a bit of dirt road exploring along Hole in the Rock and a bit of Skutumpha Rd in the Tacoma and some good slot canyon hiking... out near Hole in the Rock:


    Slot canyon near Hole in the rock:


    Jen nearing the top of the slot where it gets pretty tight:


    Hiking a cool slot in Staircase area with ice in the bottom off Skutumpha Rd:


    Some scenery of Kodachrome Basin:


    And a nice sunset:


    Back to Montana work for another month or so....
