Got a hijack going on now.... LOL

Transfer case and front axel from the JY is cheap. $20k is what the conversion companies here in Colorado are marking up their 4x4 vans. The work is being done by $15hr shade tree, so called mechanics. If I put an axel under my van I could start it off at $35k and sell at $30 and still make $20k on my 2010.

My only point on this thread was; If you have a $140k of your parents money burning a hole in your pocket, there are a TON of options out there at that price range.

Again, I was just adding my opinion as an option for the OP.

I rented a Tiger RV from this place in Denver a year or so ago to try it out. The smallest model they make now is the Bengal (10' 6" ht) and the price is well over $140,000 with the typical options. They are pretty hard to find used because there just aren't many of them on the road.

They are really a different beast to a Class B. They are much closer in size to a Class C RV. I thought the one I rented was huge and too big for me. It was very marginal in a single parking spot. It was built pretty well but the one I rented was a pretty poor driving vehicle on any road that wasn't blacktop. I remember being on a moderately rough Forest Service road and getting passed by a Toyota RAV4 SUV because I could only stand to go about 20 mph because of the bouncing and rattling. It is a very stiff, heavy duty, full size pickup with a lot of weight on it. I quickly decided that I needed a true Class B to tour the country.
