Thanks guys! The basic info is in my signature. The thumbnail pick in my Avatar is it. I will post some pics sometime tomorrow. For some reason I cant upload them from my phone. I am out in the shop trying to finish up an exterior tv upgrade where I increased the size and went to a smart TV with 3D. If you click on my user ID, there is a little bigger picture of it that you can see.

Ok, here are some pics of my Rig. These were taken yesterday when I went to Walmart to top off with cheap (relative to truckstops in my area) diesel fuel.

Thanks Brotha! I just looked at all of your pics and yours is Badazz too! I love the Hiding from the HOA picture. I have mine inside the shop I built. All of the neighbors call in on me from time to time and they swear that I operate a commercial business out of my shop behind my house. I work downtown 30 miles from home. Codes comes out every 6 months to see if there are any new toys.

Nice truck conversion! I like that rear slide too. Consider coming over to Kansas in Oct. for the HDT Rally . It's a great gathering of heavy duty campers. We need more Truck Conversions tho.

That shop is pretty neat too. We need some outside pics of that. And some inside pics of the t/c. Thank you!

yeah we have since found great storage (less then 2 miles from the house),
20x50 private bay (individual roll up door) - each bay has its own dedicated 50a connection along w/ several additional 20a circuits.

the lot is secure/gated and has a wash bay & dump tank on site.

Id love to have ours in our own garage on our own lot, closer to the house - but until we locate more land w/ a house that aint happening.

screw the <current> HOA - i was on the board for 6 yrs...the present board has no leg to stand on as far as deed enforcement - they dont wanna to enforce anything so theyve opened the door for law suits based on the grounds of "selective enforcement" - i had to get off that board, was too afraid someone would sue and id get dragged into it personally.

Looks like you have a lot of fun ahead of you. The exterior TV is the bomb!

Have you had any issues with being over-length with towing the hummer - with the rig being 47', and most states either at 65' max for motorhomes it doesn't leave much room for tow vehicle length. Anyone else out there finding DOT issues with overall length?

does the tv fold UP so you can use some of the storage when the set is stowed ?

The tv folds back up. You push the bottom of the tv toward the truck and it goes up flat and locks. Then you slide the whole unit in and it locks. It only takes up about 8" of the very yop of the locker. It has a shelf below the screen to protect it from anything bouncing up from the bottom. I will post detailed pics when I finish the wiring.

No. I don't stop at weigh stations and I keep hauling azz and looking straight ahead. I have a 27' flatbed dovetail that I pull a 91 suburban conerted rockcrawler and a rhino on. That puts me at about 75'. If I put the boat behind it, I am almost 100'.
