Thanks, Jack. Great idea. We have only driven our 32 in the driveway so far. We're thinking that it may be a bit tricky backing up!

Our 4-Runner seems to do OK, but we've only driven in our driveway so far.

RE: Have you considered the new quad axle 32 ft Escape with dual rooftop A/C and a kitchen slideout?

Great jumpin' catfish! I quit. I'm done. No way I can Photoshop match that amazing image.

I know the image is probably a fake or concept, so no comments about my gullibility, OK?

It seems to me that an 8 wheel rubber swing arm suspended (no actual cross axles) would be a good solution to back-country, Big RV, excursions as it could "walk" over rough terrain.

I may just build a deck to test the concept, our three axle car hauler turned out ok so a four shouldn't be a problem, it did "scuff" the tires on tight turns. I can foresee a possible hydroplaning problem if the tires a too lightly loaded.

As to whether or not it would be legal and license-able in Alberta is still mystery.
I remember the days of the Big Rigs having to chain up an axle to cross the border, that made them safer for sure; you folks in lotusland sure do elect em don't ya? BTW I'm sure some of you will think trains are better for transporting oil than pipelines too, till one drails in your backyard that is.

I would probably buy the 32 as a Full Timer if one were available.
