Just received my new ATC ocelot a bit over a week ago. Came back from Sacramento, over pass, and then north on 395 back into Oregon.  Not too much hiway drama, but did see an 18 wheeler, with trailer pointing backwards on the west side of the interstate...  We had 2 nights at a hot springs, and my gal was super stoked with snow falling in the morning , while in hot spring.

The gmc seems to handle the the 'shell' model fine.  my goal is to keep the camper as lite as possible. i put heavier duty cooper discoverer tires on recently. next week it will go onto dolly, and into garage. planning to use 80/20 for shelving and box construction.  put a 270 deg Alu Cab awning .  thats it for now. i subbed that out by the way to Mule Exp in pdx..

Nice!  I have to say, I don't see many ATC's on the road but like FWC, a great company.
