Re: Renting a SMB in May?
I would highly recommend attending the Overland Expo next weekend in Tucson. There will be 10 - 20 Sportsmobiles there. At least 6 of them will be 2008 or newer. I am going this year, and I attended last year.
I was able to see, tour, crawl around, talk to owners, talk to Sportsmobile West owner, Alan Feld, and drive a SMB both on and off road. After I left the Expo, I ordered my Sportsmobile and knew exactly what I wanted and why.
I don't think there is a better place to get the "lay of the land" then at the expo.
