Sportsmobile didn't make this list

But I'm not sure that's all bad:

http://www.examiner.com/slideshow/the-w ... n-vehicles


-------
Fresno's 1st 2012 Ford van.

RB E350 6.8L V-10 4WD w/Front Air Lockers
PH Top, Kyocera solar with Zamp portable unit

(If we'd bought the winch, we'd make a fortune pulling cars out of the snow.)

Re: Sportsmobile didn't make this list

It looks more like a list of the world's BIGGEST and most decadent overland adventure vehicles.

I'd say many of these vehicles will be squeezed out of plenty of wonderful adventure roads that are just too tight for them.

Obscene is the word that comes to mind, with a couple of exceptions. I like the Earthcruiser. They've sold at least one in their U.S. expansion.

Re: Sportsmobile didn't make this list

I couldn't have said it any better. They're like Diesel pusher motorhomes for the desert. I don't quite see the point.

Re: Sportsmobile didn't make this list

Most of those vehicles could not have followed us on some of our journeys let along fit into some of the campsites when been in without braking off tree limbs...
