Re: Expo East 2014 Asheville NC

Pretty crazy when you think about the collective $$$ value of all the rigs that were there that weekend, both on display and attending. Probably more than most high-end vintage auto shows! I mean, what's an Earthroamer new? $300k+++,and three of them parked in a row. $1 million right there, more or less.

Great pics, thanks. Was bummed that I wasn't able to come. Hopefully next year.

Re: Expo East 2014 Asheville NC

It was a great contrast to see mid 6 figure rigs and then couples sleeping in the back of their 4runners. Everyone being like minded is what made it so much fun. Sucks we didn't get to meet.

Likewise Eric, you're definitely our brother from a different mother (and father)!

Re: Expo East 2014 Asheville NC

Earthroamer's display rig was $525k if I remember right. It was unbelievable, but a brand new tricked out F550 crew cab, etc. etc. I'm sure you could see better pics of it than I could take on their website. Still, yes, some unbelievable money floating around there. SMB's Fuso that I saw and toured is about to be for sale as well, somewhere north of $200k.

It boggles my mind that people will throw down that kind of cash on an adventure rig ($500k).

Re: Expo East 2014 Asheville NC

Glad to meet you in person and thanks for hanging out with us!

That lone SMB in the bushes belongs to a guy named Chris, we've done a bunch of work on it. Bumpers, vents, engine work, etc. Really nice rig! He's out of Ft Bragg.
