Yes i deeply respect that.

HOWEVER!!! all testing was done in an OHV park and all speed testing was done on approved dry lake beds where they do land speed records. The record is 760mph, i was a bit under that. Not by much though :P

Ok, forgiven. The diffence between the muddy area and the clean area once the camper is open is impressive.

OK, now you owe me Plineys...

 

Yes, the whole idea was that you could not that you would.....

 

I expected it to be clean. It is the same seal i use on V1. But i also thought there would be some sort of Playa dust inside the cabin. To my surprise there wasn't.

I have only been able to get one Pliny in the last couple of months. Don't leave room in your fridge waiting for them to show up.

 

That playa dust is notorious. That is why RV rentals don't rent to Burning Man participants.

I spent a week out there in 2010 covering Burning Man in my 2009 Bobcat, with some thoughtful but simple sealing and a fun ventilation system that used a hybrid wet filter system, I had pretty much no dust....and I needed a no dust environment for film based cameras. Clean up was really minimal, all in all not bad with some minor prep.

 

Nice to see these coming along, I met your engineer who is from South America in a darkroom workshop not long ago, nice guy.

Updates please! It's been four months since the last post. I am especially interested in the V2W for the bigger trucks.
