This is why Aliens don't visit our planet
Stopped by Boulder Offroad today & lined up my lifted 2WD Roadtrek 210 up next to a customer's lifted 4X4 Roadtrek 190, don't think I should have done this...
That's a Dana 60 axle under the front of the 190 & 8-9 inches of lift vs my 4 inch lift.
That is pretty cool. I bet that's an expensive conversion!
Yeah, I'm waiting on a quote....
You know you're going to do it, sooner or later...
Not sure if they do GM's
Both rigs in that photo are Chevys.
I don't believe there was a conclusion regarding whether he did or did not have a WD hitch. What was obvious is the sway control was either nonexistent or ineffective.
I'm in talks with another shop that does independent front suspension 4WD conversions, don't think I want my 210 up that high. Cheaper too
you better go ahead and get that higher profile roof while you're at it too.
Well, I think I'm going in another direction if I decide to do the conversion, 8-9 inches of lift is a more than I want. The other option is like a Silverado/Sierra, independent front suspension with coils, on the fly 4WD mechanical shifting (electronically controlled transfer case), 4wd high & Low, a bit more than 3 inches of lift. If I go with a new set of wheels that have less offset i can go up from a 265 tire to a 285 and get and additional 1/2 - 1 inch of lift.
That story, or a version of it has been circulating for at least 8 years that I know of. Interestingly enough, it's always been a female driver!
Not trying to bring any RP into the thread.
I've heard other stores like that and male drivers were also involved. Saw one other news article so it must have happened at least twice.
I think the first time I heard that story was from my Dad, probably 45-50 years ago. In that version, a guy from West Virginia bought a new Cadillac, got on the highway, set the cruise control, and closed his eyes for a nap.
I have read it several times over the years involving different vehicles too.
Considering how some people think and act, it could happen!
It was in the newspaper here several years ago involving a rental RV and two elderly couples visiting Alaska for the first time...
One nice ending to the story has always been that only minor injuries were involved.
Another popular story here is about an eagle swooping down and carrying away a small dog (various breeds), and the husband silently cheering as his wife grieves her loss.
Yeah, it could happen!
I think you got this backward - I'd be cheering if the eagle took the (ex) wife and left me the dog.
I understand this is an R V thread , but here is a pretty cool older trailer .
Trailers are RV's.
