Zombie Apocalypse spotted

Saw this one off unit today and it looks like a real go anywhere rig. RV part was from a 2003 Bigfoot B17CB. Owner said he was headed to the Baja for the winter.

It was all very cool actually. Totally a very functional unit, maybe the look doesnít suit everyone but I am good with it. Under the tarp on the rear deck was a KLR650, and the rear deck was lowered by a hydraulic tailgate lift. The fender well on the door side was rigged up with a fold down BBQ. It also had a heater that ran on diesel. And the list of mods was huge. Look at all the LED light bars, wow thatíll easily turn night to day! And no, the stone guard could not be raised...however in 10 years of owning my Bigfoot Iíve only raised the stone guard to wash under it. Great for the outback for sure.

Looks like it's packing 4 huge solar panels on the topside (if the rear one is also a panel. Wonder if one of the front ones slides forward when camped.

I only see one solar panel, on the front of the trailer. The cover on the rear doesnít have any wiring under it so Iím guessing it is not solar.

Well, we did have a question recently about mounting and hauling things on the roof of a fiberglass trailer...

My basis for 4 panels guess is the diamond pattern aluminum wrap on the edges of the 4 pieces. Wires are easy to hide.

those cab-over utility trucks, like Fusos, are not very comfortable to ride in, you're practically sitting on the engine, so they are loud and harsh riding. They mostly get used for short haul local delivery and such, I'd hate to be spending 8 hours going somewhere in one.
