    Welcome to SS, northstar alberta.

    And those Tatras look positively beastly; real nice.

    It's got to be that both front axles are steerable, that right?

    No it has only the front steer axles. I believe only the 10X12 and 12X12 has the option of rear steer axles???

    I think northstar is correct-but I bet if you wanted it Tatra could put rear steer on an 8x8. Just a question of $$$.

    Rusty Loads,

    What is the turning circle of your Tatra 8x8? What sort of mpg are you getting out of it?

    Hey now...I did a 10,000 km trip and drove it a little faster than it likes..AKA..95-100 kph at times...It really likes 85 kph. With that said I'm getting roughly 6 US miles per gallon. For an almost 40,000 lb. vehicle (including camperised Zeppelin container/ shelter) I don't think it's that bad. As long as I drive it once every 15 years I'll be able to afford fuel lol.
    Turning circle..I have to check the spec. Lets put it this way for now...in Moab I had do some 3 point turns on the switchbacks. Nerve-wracking going down...not so bad climbing.
