Re: -> A Huge Tail Gate and Departure Angle

Thats definately cool. Too much additional investment for me personally. Plus it leaves my vehicle out in the weather and no place to lock up my tools and ish.

Have considered raising the roof but idk, thats alot of trouble.

On the brighter side I think I have finally settled on a floor plan for my 15' living area. Now, if I could just come up with some more money

Re: -> A Huge Tail Gate and Departure Angle


I would hesitate to make the bus any lower in the back. Sooner or later, you would probably scrape it -- hard.

As always, I'm all for raising the roof.

thats what I would do if it were me. It would be alot easier to raise the roof than lower the floor, IMO
