OK, let me be the first to try to talk you out of it. If you have the 10K for the purchase, go for it! You could build just about anything on the back of that machine. It would go almost anywhere and it would have the ultimate "cool" factor to boot. Hope this helps.

Not their actual product, have seen several of the rigs, I know them through ECORS racing, and love his vans,

Many great reviews on expedition portal, they have their own 4x4 van section

$10K sounds like a bargain --- you could make that back in one wet, snowy season just pulling million-dollar mega-liners out of the slush!

Ya tango, I definitely considered that fact. The only thing that keeps me from jumping on the deuce idea is I'd like to have something that can blend in a little bit as I'm traveling and that's absolutely impossible in one of those. I think the deuce might have to wait til a bit later in life.

I also might get into building tiny homes for others and it would be nice to have a more "conventional" (yet extremely versatile) bus as a showpiece to help sell the deal.

Looks like we have landed similar vehicles. I won't be toy hauling with mine, just family touring

Very nice. I haven't actually made the purchase yet, still searching. A few more popped up in the last few days, hopefully I'll get a chance to check them out next week, otherwise it might have to wait until after new years. I really like the look of your bus with the square windows as opposed to the rounded ones. Gives it that limo bus look. Pics of inside?

This could be a really cool project. Love the look of the 4x4 shuttle bus. At one time, I thought about converting mine to 4x4 but realized that I would need even longer ramps to load my Cobra.
