Awesome. I'm sure there are photos on their site, but for some reason I can't get it to open from where I'm at right now.

As someone who spends a lot of time driving military vehicles, I can't see myself ever wanting to drive one as an RV. I'm assuming the DAF has some grunt that makes it more roadworthy that most military vehicles? Nevertheless, it is a cool setup they have.

Yeah, but so much niftier than a Winnebago. And I'll bet that no one hassled them about driving on the beach. And with an out-of-state tag.

That is one impressive mountain lake. Big enough to have waves and not be able to see the other side.
