The Sherpa

This is our "camper" that we made for my flatbed rig, V4. A bit different than the rest but it works for me and my family with the trips we'll be taking over the next several years (have 3 kids under the age of 2) Then we'll see! Maybe bolt it to a trailer.

Re: The Sherpa

Looks nice Chris, though the jockey box is a clearly an attempt to retain some of your manhood while knee-deep in dirty diapers. I can say that since I have a two tap jockey box.

How do you keep the little ones safely inside the bedroom?

I like the changes. Sounds like we'll be seeing you in May.

Re: The Sherpa

Thanks Claude, look forward to seeing you & Viva soon.

Yes, the Jockey box gets a good workout! I almost went with 2 but my space is limited. A 1/5 keg does good for weekend trips. I'll probably bring 2 kegs with me to the Expo, some good ol NC frosty barley pop.

Re: The Sherpa

Having seen this in person at Expo East (and hung out with the Ujoint crew) I can say that the Sherpa is an absolute beast and the ultimate overlanding platform.
