Need 20 more inches

My wife says the RB is becoming to small and to find an EB. So if anyone knows of a nice EB coming up for sale let me know not picky 2008 or newer, Diesel with a decent floor plan below $100,000,fixed or pop top. Wife was looking at the Earthromer site and that is making me feel very uneasy!!

One way to add a bit of space is to put Flarespace bumpouts in the rear window holes. You can then put an elevated transverse bed in the rear.

Just take the rear doors off, then get those things truckers put on the back of their semis for wind resistance, seal the back and Boom. Done.

Now that is a plan!! I was thinking about just building a box out of plywood and putting a comp roof, Cedar wall shingles on the sides and sealing with 15 tubes of caulking. However because I am too cheap the Aluminess swing arms on the bumper would have to be modified to fold around to the sides!
