    Sorry, all I know is it was on the travel channel. I bet GXV would know.
    Travel Channel - "Tricked Out Trailers". It was just on.

    I know, I came in from outside and caught the last shot of the rig. I was so bummed about missing it.

    Very nice rig, good chassis choice. Can I ask what the overall height is?
    Thanks,
    Mark.

    Mark,

    Thanks for the compliments. It is about 12' 4" to the top of the A/C cover. We just say 13' so we are safe.

    Thanks again,

    amazing truck! Just a thought after looking through this thread. You should add some nice aux. driving lights in the spot where the original headlights used to be. Maybe another pair of those Hella lights like you have on the roof (cause it looks like you might need more lights ).

    Good work. Subscribed!

    Thx! It is already "in the works". The factory omitted the cradle and the wiring harness behind the "Orphan Annie" blank out plates. After discussion with the dealer, they agreed to supply what is needed to install lights in the factory locations. Of course, they will be for "off-road use only". wink-wink

    As it turns out, the 20" Rigid LED bar in conjunction with the high beams makes for a great driving light. I have to be very judicious about the use of the LED bar as it is so effective.

    Thanks again!

    Have you ran into anything where the height was giving you any trouble? My rig is 11'6" to the top which is why I'm asking, I went through a lot of work to build it as roomy and low as possible, hopefully it's low enough!

    Thanks,
    Mark.

    Not yet. Our previous rig (Sportsmobile) was +/- 10' 3" and so I was always aware of height while driving it. I know that it wouldn't be too much trouble to find some low hanging trees but in terms of bridges and or wires, no problems so far. The height is a trade-off for interior headroom. For us, I'll take the headroom and will just be aware of the height limitations as they present themselves.

    Pretty much my take on that subject too.
    Thanks again.
