Tom... did this last year with Bill and we had 2 Sprinters in the group. They did really well and Bill took the time to explain the Sprinter 4x system in detail.

as Bill says ... "Good Shit." heres a few pictures from the weekend and a little video from after the class. Theres was still sunlight and i decided i wasn't gonna air up till it got dark.









Agreed on all points. I had a blast, learned a ton, met great people and got stuck more than anyone else in the group. I pretty much verified what I knew all along. The driver in my case is less capable than the vehicle. The class narrowed that gap quite a bit though. I would recommend this course without reservations.

Amazing that Bill allowed vehicles with only 1HP to attend.

Cool to know.

I know enough that a Sprinter 170 EB (the 24' long one) 4x4 dually (3500) might well struggle with the long overhang.... any thoughts about that?

planning on buying a Sprinter 170 EB (the 24' long one) 4x4 dually (3500) in the future.

and i assume they were 144 4x4 Sprinters? (the shortest ones) that did the course last year?

thanks

John
