    Now thats quite a trip [:O] Off roading like that has alway's amazed me (I'm a chicken) but pulling a pup too! We went through (or should I say around) Canyonlands last year. What a beautiful area, and just thinking of that kind of boondocking sounds so quiet and peaceful. Hat's off to you and your family for taking "Weezy" on such an awesome journey.

    'Weezy" must be quite the "Deluxe Apartment in the Sky"! I want a piece of that pie [:D]

    OMG! I kept thinking they're not going there...are they? and then you went AND kept going. You are some rugged campers. I'm very impressed.

    Great job, it looks great! How does it do on tight switchbacks?

    Here's another video. Note the opposing angles the Land Cruiser and camper get to. I think this may have been the part that twisted my lock n roll hitch...

    I'm just thinking that those PUPs need that upside down bumper sticker that reads, "If you can read this, roll me over!"

    Very Cool! I think that would be a great experience.

    Since I have my wife's mini van today I wonder if I can get it on a 4WD frame and modify the camper before she gets home from work.

    I'm also wondering how much time she would give me to find another place to live.

    Awesome!!!!!!!! I can't believe those are 37's. I've got a Cherokee on 33's and your cruiser just doesn't look that big. I like those cruisers. I actually was looking at them before I bought my Suburban. I had to have 3rd row seating and either one was about all I had to choose from.
