    1017 gathering of two

    Below is a link to Bill Caid's (Green 1017A) webpage that has the spare tire carrier build. http://www.billcaid.com/2019/Lance%20Trailer%20Build-Out%20201812-201904/Part15/Part15.html It is a very clean set-up. You pull a locking/safety pin, then you can rotate a handle 180° that disengages...

    Abenteuer & Allrad 2019!

    I went last year (2018), it was awesome. Here are some suggests from a 'first timer' there. I would say one day for the official show if you get there at the opening when it is not too crowded, and one day for the camping area, which is just as interesting as the show. I would recommend Friday...

    Build your own Fuso FG6 4x4 based camper/overlander!

    Good point. It defeats the whole purpose of the underride bar (Mansfield bar) that truck has.

    (finally) Pulling the trigger - Magirus 170D11

    Do not get the steel rim. They are over 100 pounds (45kg) each and have a 50-50 offset (backspacing). I don't know how your adapters will be made, but I don't think the rims with built-in regulators will work if you want to flip them to change the offset from front to rear. With an adapter, you...

    (finally) Pulling the trigger - Magirus 170D11

    If you end up needing wheels it sounds like Jonturgeon has a good source in Europe. His truck is an MB, and he wanted 22.5s. but it sounds like they can build to any spec? https://www.expeditionportal.com/forum/threads/mb-1120-coming-to-america.190398/page-2#post-2469359

    (finally) Pulling the trigger - Magirus 170D11

    I might be off on the measurements, but it looks like you might end up 14 feet tall (430cm) ?? Both the US and Canada are limited to 13'6" in general, and this is HIGHWAYS, not secondary roads, etc. And certainly not off-road. US CANADA So are you limiting yourself to just major highways...

    4x4 Winnebago Lesharo......Hideous Awesomeness

    It comes down to size (length). The Renault engine was mounted transverse, so unless the 'replacement engine' is mounted that way (traverse V6s are a popular 2wd swap) the shorter the better (see doghouse photo back a few posts). 210hp is 3-4 times the original HP. But I'm all for someone...

    4x4 Winnebago Lesharo......Hideous Awesomeness

    Yes, that is a pretty one. As you are probably aware the Renault engine/transmission was the weak link. The cabins are great. And a 4x4 one of these would be very cool. Hummmm, LaSharo wheelbase is 145 inches, 82 inches wide, 11th generation (2004-2008) Ford F150 SuperCab w/ 6.5' bed or Regular...

    4x4 Winnebago Lesharo......Hideous Awesomeness

    It would seem he uses 'all wheel drive' and 4x4 interchangeably? The ad is hard to understand due to grammar and spelling, so you are best to give him a call. The clearance between the doghouse and the driver's seat would seem to be a problem? On the factory units, this is all flat floor. Just...

    Choosing one of the MB trucks

    The 'A' in the model number is for Alrad, so 4x4, that does not mean the engine is a turbo. The 'A' in the engine number like OM352A means turbo. The 'F' in the model number means a firetruck, which might or might not have fast axles. More likely but certainly not a guarantee. Model designations...
