    Safety cage or a partition wall is nice. Even a loose tool bag or wrench can cause a lot of issues. It does not even take an accident. About 25 years ago, I had a hard braking event in my station wagon. I had a large cooler hit my seat and put me into the steering wheel.

    I too had a hard braking incident and a 5 gallon bucket of paint come forward, hit the dog house and popped open filling the front of my van with a nice tan exterior latex. Taught me to secure my $hit also.

    Going to go look at this rig tomorrow. Van life sucks and will only be used for bike hauling. Be nice to have heat,toilet,and cook stove.So tired of trying to slide out of van(air mattress) at 2 in the morning to take a wiz.Hate putting out the money but will make things more fun and will keep wifey and my mutt happy.Another benefit is not using a Porta potty with this virus crap going on.Our club is trying to figure out something with the porta potty,s as looks like we are having our 1st meet next month.

    Bought a camper this year (first one for me) to pull behind the van. Soon after was when the virus shit hit the fan. Using it this weekend for the first time. Had plans to use it a few times earlier, but that didn't happen. The happy wife thing works here, plus we can get out on both sides of the bed!

    Maybe put a little "tainted " water in the tanks before you do that. He beat me me out of first by three points last year. Maybe just the advantage I need to beat him this year ???
