Re: How do you use your SMB?

The current Quigley has been my daily driver/mobile office and basically empty inside. I have been hesitant to do anything to it knowing it was not the final platform. The new Quadvan picked up last week will be the new daily driver/mobile office and RV once done with the inside buildout.

We have been using our Truck Camper combo for long trips and plan on selling it and the Quigley once the Quadvan is done. I typically work in it between photo shoots during the day instead of coming back to the office. Great time saver.

Re: How do you use your SMB?

Three season vehicle. In the winter with its salty roads the van stays in a storage lot for Dec-March. Ares is not 4 wheel drive and we have all season tires. Prefer SUV for winter use up north.

Re: How do you use your SMB?

Does admiring it in the drive-way and dreaming about the next trip count as a use?

Re: How do you use your SMB?

In addition to all of the exploring I do in my SMB, I use it every year as the campsite registration/security office for the Boy Scout Mountain Man Rendezvous sponsored by the Las Vegas Area Council of the BSA. In the picture below I am the only one in camp. Within a few hours there were over 1700 boys and leaders camped around me. Of course they were all in tents. This three-day event is held every year in February. I will be doing it again this year for the sixth year in a row. I can always use help if someone wants to bring their rig and join me.

How do you use your SMB?

I like your flagpole and mount. Did you make that or purchase it?

I made the mount and purchased the pole. Now my ladder is on the side and is black, so I painted the mount black. I like flying the flag whenever I camp.

Re: How do you use your SMB?

It is 3:30 in the morning and I am using my van as a mobile command post for the USCG. Tonight I am working on plans to recover all the oil from a former US Navy Tug sunk in the Harbor in San Francisco.

Picture was taken from the van.
