Always enjoy your thread up dates. Tigers are unique and like you said an RV’s weight seems to bring on added issues. I’m glad you mentioned the rally in Gunnison. I haven't been to that one but will probably see you there. I was already looking forward to a trip this year into Colorado and that rally will be an added bonus. BTW, when I was a Tiger Owners Forum member I seem to remember a couple folks having their tire treads separating. Pretty sure one guys were BFG’s also but I can’t go and search the forum. I do remember he was an air down on trails guy. I don’t air down on my Tiger but do on my Wrangler, always. The different concideration is due to the loads on the tires. My Tiger weighs 11,000 lbs. and my Wrangler 4,500. To my date my Tiger has just over 50,000 miles, with 30,000 on current Nitto Ridge Grapplers and they still look new. Anyway, thanks for the thread and keeping it updated.

Hope to see/meet you in Gunnison. Yeah, I've never aired down the Tiger for the same reason, "weight". But, were prerunning the RimRocker trail from Montrose, Co. to Moab in about a week and I'm considering at least drop my pressure by 10 or 15 lbs to soften the ride. I won't go to crazy and monitor as I go along, but it'll be interesting to see how if changes the ride over rough roads.

I sure envy your Tiger. Some day (when I'm rich or lucky) I hope to find something similar.

Awesome rig.
Thanks! Keep looking, they're out there. Finding an older one that hasn't been loved for while is possible and can be inexpensive. The great thing is that Provan still has a great parts support for them and they are straightforward to work on. Good luck!

One of the Tiger projects I've been putting off was install new flooring.......I hate doing tiling, carpet, wood flooring, you name it, I hate it. I did it in college for my dad who own apartments and my first couple of fixer upper houses and I just got sick of it. Anyway, we've been running the T with floor mats over a bare wood floor and I finally decided to man up and put the flooring in. Had to order the darn stuff since it seems no one does nice vinyl flooring anymore. Prepped the floor. Made a template from brown paper and transferred it to the flooring. Sharp razor blade and cut the entire floor out of a single piece of vinyl (brilliant idea). Layed the glue down and layed the flooring.....kinda like fighting a giant sticky noodle.....got it in. Nice fit. Pushed the bubbles out and kinda happy with it. Just need to finish the step and we're done with this thing! (No such thing!)

Attended the 1st Rocky Mountain Overland Rally in Gunnison, Co. this week and had a great time! Met lots of fascinating Overlanders and had a fun looking over some of the rigs. The Tiger did a great job keeping us warm, dry and comfy at night and getting us and our ATC gear to the show and back home.IMG_4599.JPGIMG_4602.JPG29C058AD-1E80-440B-BD5E-5D356B36D084.jpegIMG_4615.JPG
