This, i'm sold on an all aluminum enclosed now.
Lol. Buying an rv is ok..just dont ever rebuild one
You know they tear apart at the seams, right?
Had no fucking clue, figured they cast the trailer in one piece I was more so getting at the fact aluminum doesn't rot like would does and would be much easier to seal.
Well now you're just being silly. It CAN'T be cast in one piece, or it'd be solid
They have to do it like a chocolate Easter bunny; in 2 halves, so it's hollow inside then seal the middle seam of the 2 halves. And since it sealed with chocolate, ain't no WAY that seam will bust
Damn man! You are doing an awesome job Dylan. Makes one wonder how this thing did not just fly apart going down the road. One thing for sure is that it will be better than new once you are done!!
Thanks Steve! and.... the front drivers side over cab part DID fly off going down the road
Terminal velocity of this boat isn't very high....
Joe: "We should put an under powered drive train in it coupled to limited Suspension. This way it will be way under powered and no one in their right mind will free wheel it down Black Mountain.
Bill: "Right, we can also use the cheapest materials available since the wind shear will never be high enough to rip itself apart."
Joe: "How does industrial cardboard and over sized popsicle sticks sound?"
Bill: "Awesome! Let's cover it with the thinnest gellcoat fiberglass available and it should make it through the prescribed sales pitch of a false warrantee."
Joe: "About that warrantee language...change that one bit to- owner should inspect and reseal annually. Without said proof structural warrantee is nul and void".
You forgot the part about a 12 year warranty being granted to the original owner and is non transferable.
You nailed it my friend !
This absolutely amazing! These things are nothing more than a shabbily built shed on a truck frame. WTF ever happened to DOT specs? This is the best thread that's come thru NC4x4 in a LONG time!
Thanks RQ! You are right about how they're built. I have sheds that are much stronger for sure.
No kidding! I think the name of this RV should be the bad banana...
Saw this guy backing in yesterday evening, thought about stopping to warn him...
Makes me wonder how much flex is really happening underneath that gelcoat..
Not entirely sure but I'm sure it would out score your TJ on an RTI ramp...
