Current van: 2002 Ford E350 extended body camper with Colorado Camper Van pop top and Agile Offroad 4WD conversion.
Here are a couple pictures I took today (I did a quick job removing the foreground so the step would show). They look really cool, and make the rig look even higher. We are currently waiting for some faster actuators from Canada to arrive. Hopefully I'll have both mounted by the 2nd when I leave for the Lost Coast area.
Truly it is written: A rotund genius shall show us the way!
Some questions, though. (1) How is the almost invisible guidance tether attached to the white polymer landing platform? (2) For the 2nd launch attempt. some alternate guidance system was somehow activated resulting in a perfect 4-point touch-down of the shock-absorbing landing struts. Is this the Wolowitz Effect used on the Mars Rover? (3) Can it be painted to match one's SMB? (4) Is it better to have one line-exed or rhinoed? (5) Can I make one myself out of milk jugs and a glue gun, or should I wait for SMB to offer one for $40 or $120 in matching color?
