Hi everybody !

First of all, please excuse my poor english..!

I'm a 50 year old photographer actually living in Switzerland. I plan a several years trip in the US, Canada, Yukon, Alaska, Island... It's already a good start, isn't it..?

For this trip, I will definitly acquire a Extended Body 4x4 Diesel Sportsmobile, probably with a voyager top and EB51 or EB50 floor plan. I just register on the forum to learn much usefull information there. I saw a lot of really nice vehicles in galleries..!

Hope you could help me when I will (certainely) have questions...

Best regards from Switzerland !

Re: Hi everybody !

Welcome, hope you enjoy the trip in and around the US. The classified section might help you find a good diesel vehicle. Good luck on your purchase.

Are you planning any off road adventures?

Thanks to all for your help proposal. I will prepare a post with project specifications of my ideal vehicle to read your comments and advices... Some of you certainly have large experience with SMB and I still have a lot to discover.
