Does it get any better than Avia's rig?

I would say that AVIA shoe company has hands down the sweetest SMB design anywhere on this forum...plus the toy to tow behind.....challengers???

Re: Does it get any better than Avia's rig?

I prefer the orange Toyo van with the dark grey interior... plus the AVIA paint looks like visual throw-up to me. Still it's hard to compete with a company that uses marketing budget on toys.

I would also say the dozen matching red ones that went to Qatar beat this.. I mean if you're going to count the boat...

I'd have my nuts be bitten by rats than to have my van look like that.

Yeah but our van has an elevator (wheelchair lift), 24" adjustable drivers seat (for transfer) and you don't need feet (hand controls)
Plus cameras for the front bumper, front axle, rear axle and rear bumper mean you can see where you are going without looking out a window

And best of all we constantly have someone new behind the wheel enjoying the time of their life!

I will put McBeast up against them with our grey on grey 1985 Mastercraft pulled behind ... But we saw the Avia SMB on IH5 when we were in Ca for the BCS Championship game.

And I wouldn't trade my SMB and RockCrawler trailer for that combo, unless I could sell it and buy mine back!

That is the advantage of and SMB. It can be individualized to one's needs.
