Re: SMB Sightings

Yep, that looks like him. If you have a chance to meet up, you won't believe how nice that thing is in person. It's about the nicest interior I've ever seen.

$90K + your own van, and it too can be yours....

Re: SMB Sightings

Claude is not selling his van. Moorehead Design Labs is using his as an example of what they can build - for $90K.

Claude built his at their shop, with some help from them, but mostly he built it himself.

Re: SMB Sightings

was able to meet up with claude this morning. very nice guy, and really enjoyed chattin with him over b-fast, just wish i could have had a little more time for shootin the breeze. stupid jobs n'stuff rig is very nice! its not often i park next to anyone and look smaller definitely something for me to aspire too. love seeing different setups, especially the homebuilt varity. he did a great job with his buildout. i would have guessed it was a smb build by the quality and fit.

again, thanks for taking the time to send me a pm claude! wish we could have connected a bit sooner and we coulda camped together last weekend. kinda funny we ended up in damn near the same area all last weekend, lol. really is a small world at times. hope your travels are problem free

Re: SMB Sightings

Oups, sorry about telling that Idaho is a nice place...

Here is the picture of your van next to VivaLaVida. Sorry for the bad picture, it's made with an iPhone...





Sure, I'll let you know when I'll come back in the area...

Re: SMB Sightings

Anybody know the owner of the Van on the right? Spotted @ Park City, UT Ford Dealer Service on Sunday, June 1st. Mines on the left : ) They had some awesome gutter brackets for their awning I'd like to ask them about.
