New TruckTrend Sportsmobile Article

Seems like SMBs get more press every year. I like it!

I started thinking of ways to score a permanent seat at the helm of a Sportsmobile. As of this writing, gold is valued at around $1730 an ounce, and with the Sportsmobile 4WD ranging from $90,000 to $120,000, I'd need to dig up at least 52 ounces of gold to buy one.

Re: New TruckTrend Sportsmobile Article

The article didn't really have much to say about the SMB's, more of an advertisement.

And I'll bet he never finds enough gold to pay for the pan.

Seems like a paid info-mercial to me.

Re: New TruckTrend Sportsmobile Article

Was it a trip report made into an article that ended up being an advertisement? Sure, and I don’t have an issue with that. They are a company.

New TruckTrend Sportsmobile Article

Most magazine articles are trying sell you a product. Some are just more direct about it than others. It was a good read though and I liked the way the storage box was laid out. Gave me some good ideas on what to do with mine.

Yeah, the storage box was nicely organized.
