Yep and on practical terms I want to go further on the limited fuel I can carry.


Off to Seattle via Port Angeles. Too bad Olympic Hot Springs are out !

But this is stuff I'm sure you've thought about and not why you came here!

You know you've got me thinking that I can also just collect the water in those collapsible water totes. So instead or risking freezing up my dump ports I can cart them off to a gray drain when available.


For sure I plan on discussing this with any resort I do business with. There is always this option as well and many are year round.

I had a 1995 Peterbilt 377 tractor with a 425 hp Detroit engine. It weighed 18,500 lbs bobtail (no trailer) It had amazing power and would get 14 mpg without a trailer. (6 2/3 mpg with a GCVW of 80,000 lbs). And it had two 125 gallon fuel tanks.

The reason I say this is if you could find a used highway tractor with a long enough wheel base to mount a 21' trailer body, it would be pretty economical. Better yet, find a 53' drop deck flatbed trailer and you could build a log cabin on it. Then license it as an RV and not be subject to any commercial vehicle laws (abuse). That would really P them off at the weight scales.

Pretty impressive MPG for such a big rig. Do they make one in 4WD ? Might need to take a look at 4x4 F450/550 flatbed rigs.



Off to go camp...

I have a Bigfoot truck camper mounted on my Fuso. Insulated and heated basement, double pane windows, etc.

Starting to lean back to a Yetti Ice House and mounting backwards onto a Stake Bed.

For the cost of a quality used BF I can buy a brand new Ice House that will sleep 6. I can also trailer off and then have a stake bed/flat bed truck. Easy to load unload with retractable wheels and ball hitch.


Well insulated to boot !
