I'd be interested in going. I was going to try MOab with my 450x but...if I can go where it's warmer.


And if anyone is looking for a cheap bicycle type compter for their bikek check this one out: knock-off?

Is that able to maintain freeway speeds? What is stopping like with the extra weight?

Looks `good`.

Did this ever happen? Newbie green here and was looking for directions/hand holding. Not in the gay type though.

Trackhead, are you sure you don't own a KLR?

It sure seems to be in your blood.

I would have to see the total bill on your camper conversion
before I declare you an Honorary KLRista.

Has to be under $20. Any milk crate use on the interior? Bonus points.

I'll be on a cruise then.

It's gotta be warmer in the islands.

The net extra weight is less than 300lbs, so stopping is entirely a non-issue, nor does it affect handling.

It goes 55mph without too much difficulty, but I didn't buy it to cruise down I-15, nor would I want to. I bought it to putz down dirt roads with my wife and little kid on the way.

I look at it like owning a good dirt bike, you buy a dirt bike for how it performs on dirt, not on slab. Same thing here.

Hey trackhead, I think that 'family camper' is shit hot!! When your 90, drooling and have to have your ass wiped, you'll be able to remember the things you DID, and have a smile on your face. Your wife and kid will too!
Right on.

Right on!. Looking forward to "trip reports" with it. At one time i had considered a pretty decked out samurai. I have a small spot in my heart for them. Not big but still think they are neat.

The trax version would make you more of a 'trackhead'. Anyway, cool conversion and the black paint helped the looks!

Samurai $1300
Camper materials $500
New suspension $550
Lower transfer case gears $500
Camper interior projected cost $200
_______________________________
$3050 total.

If it breaks down, rolls, or any other mishap, I'll just light a match and walk away without a tear.

Those dudes who spend upwards of $100,000 on fancy Sportsmobiles and Jeep conversions hardly take them off road, and spend all their time waxing them to make them look pretty for the internet. That won't be the case for me, and I'll go to all the same places, just like you on your KLR.

My motorhome has a milk crate, and I'll be sure to incorporate one into this design.

The proper attitude on it being disposable, the right price,
right paint, no pride, gentlemen, I believe we have a closet KLRista!

For a couple hundred more you could have the real thing, but not
be able to haul the whole family.

Look how envious the flatbed bike rider is.

May need to involve Harcus for this project.
