Steel Soldiers now has a few new forums, read more about it at: New Munitions Forums!
A this thread got crazy, but i still want to post here :
awesome truck man, we got a m923a2 and out a ALASKAM pop camper in it, good luck on the build!
I attached two pics for you, views from front to back and vise-versa.
The bed situation we just changed, we got rid of the permanent table we built and inserted a temp table and then installed a king bed there which will break down to what you see in the pic.
We gutted this camper and reframed/rebuilt it to what u see, we even mad the aluminum locker doors. We installed solar for the microwave, Keurig and even the wife’s frigging curling iron..(no shit).
The creative part was building the superstructure for the camper undercarriage for lifting it into the truck and then safely being able to lock it down, so the undercarriage does double duty here
Please share with me your observations of this truck- what looked good to you, what didn't look good to you, and what concerns did you have about it? Why did you stop bidding before I did? Did you buy another vehicle instead?
Are you saying that you're shopping for a vehicle to convert into an overland expedition vehicle, or are you saying that you have converted vehicle(s) into overland expedition vehicle(s)? Please elaborate, Dirk.
I would be concerned about the challenges relating to CDL requirements, insurance requirements, and registration / license plate / trip permit requirements.
I would be willing to obtain trip permit(s) as needed. I would probably not be able to register it as a motorhome prior to bringing it home. And without registering it as a motorhome, it would require a CDL to legally operate it on public roads.
I have located a driver with a CDL so that I would be able to have it driven home without committing any crimes.
The insurance requirements are an issue that I have not even begun to figure out yet. Complicating this matter is that it will be coming home as "not a motorhome", and then we will convert it into a motorhome. I'm thinking that a cleaner solution would be for it to actually be a motorhome before even attempting to register and/or insure it, as opposed to registering and/or insuring it as something other than a motorhome, and then trying to get the registration and/or insurance changed over to a motorhome. I am trying to be careful to make statements, instead of asking questions, in order to avoid violating any forum rules regarding this subject...but I am open to any input here...
I am retired, and we would be willing to move to just about any state that facilitates the registration and insurance of this vehicle for our intended purposes.
Yeah, I'm not too worried about it- it could be something as simple as CTIS operator error. I'm sure we'll get it figured out.
