Who can afford one?
I think the new ER Jeep is quite reasonably priced if you want one, will use it and lose the BS about being able to build it cheaper yourself.I deal with yacht builders and boat owners all the time.The ER while not quite on par with the european truck builders is a lot closer to yacht contstruction then your average Jayco.Good stuff costs and while it may be out of your reach, it may only be so because you have rationalized something cheaper as being acceptable or it is acceptable for your needs.I am hardly wealthy and am the sole breadwinner in my home but it has never prevented me from owning exactly what I wanted.I simply save for what I want, dream about it in anticipation and never look back once I own it. Everybody makes compromises in life, I have chosen not to own something unless it is absolutely the one I want, it simply means that sometimes I have nothing until then, no big deal!

It's not about the truck and it is not about the distance traveled. Get out there with whatever you have, meet people and see things. Push the envelope of your comfort zone and live.
