What's the backstory on the single cab with the ARB bull bar? AEV build or Icelandic truck?

ETA: Never mind, I see now that it is your old '06 that you sold to your buddy.

Cheers

I don't just sell Jeeps, I own them, I modify them, I wheel them, and I occasionally break them and have to repair them.

The difference between the stock truck and the AEV truck is amazing. I know that you said that you want a dedicated camper (permanently fixed) but there is a company in The Netherlands that makes an 11 foot camper, among others, that could work well for your build. Or at least you could use it on your truck now while you are building your dedicated camper. It is rugged and unique in design which is beneficial if you wanted to, say, ship your truck/camper to Australia and drive all over the outback as a "promotional trip" now that Australia is importing full size Ram trucks and could be a legitimate market for AEV Ram accessories. (Since it was my idea I would expect an invite on an Australia trip, by the way). At the very least, it might give you some ideas on floorpan and finishes.

I am planning one for a Unimog - Similar to the pictures but a U1550L OM366LA

http://blissmobil.com/en/products/11ft

"With a net weight of 2000 kg and a length of 3350 mm, the 11 foot unit is the basic and compact global traveller for 2 people. The standard model features a water capacity of 175L (475L highbed model) and 3 solar panels with a combined capacity of 0.78 kW. Add the 24V battery pack with a capacity of 400 Ah/more than 10 kW, the 40-litre capacity freezer, air conditioning and numerous additional comfort and travel features and you can leave civilisation behind for 30 days without a problem."

The other option I am looking at is an Adak adventure trailer sans trailer and mounted directly on the back of the truck. Either the Bivouac or the Outpost may work. Depends on how much overhang you want. When compared to the Bliss Mobil this has the benefit of possibly mounting lower because you can have cutouts for the wheels, it is much less expensive, and it is made in the United States. This would be more similar to the GXV Turtle than an Earthroamer.

Or if you wanted to be different and hardcore you could put something like the Conqueror UEV 490 on the back. This would be more for your 2500 Regular cab than your new 3500

Years ago,I had a handshake deal with a guy who was selling his Conqueror trailer here in GA. It was around christmas time and back then there were only 5 or so in the states. He ended up selling it to someone else on christmas day and I had agreed to get it from him the day after. Im still butt hurt about that, it was no UEV490 though.

All the new ones coming out of AUS are sick. I really hope the US market takes a long hard look at the AUS market and starts designing nicer trailers. Even that ADAK looks like shit to me, it just doesnt look like it will hold up to the design intent. Ive heard that Kimberly is trying to get a US distributor though, which would be huge.
