In another thread, there is talk of taking a Tesla Semi and building out an RV on it.

Given that this site is about the CT though I'm wondering if we couldn't get even more radical. I don't see myself having the $$$ for these right away. As long as I'm dreaming though, something like the below might be a nice goal for someday.

Can you imagine a custom-built adventure truck with the Tesla Semi as the donating base?

All I can think of when I see these is that they'd get stuck in the trees ^-^

But they look so cool!

LOL, trees? What about went that sucker falls over on it's side? "HELP, I've fallen and I can't get up". Imagine the bill for that offroad recovery! :oops:

That reminds me of traveling through Baja and seeing a Concrete truck barrel laying on the side of a dirt road for years. The truck had rolled over and the concrete spilled and hardened in place. They disconnected it from the truck so they could at least recover the truck.;):LOL:

Looks like a converted garbage truck. Hope it doesn't smell like one inside. But I do like the MAN logo

I take that you, too, have watched Matt's Offroad Recovery on YouTube?

For those unfamiliar, these guys are a towing company in Utah who also do offroad recovery:
https://www.youtube.com/c/MattsOffRoadRecovery

As someone who's never been particularly interested in the off-road scene, but who does enjoy the intersection of teamwork and technical challenges, I've learned a lot from watching these folks.

They never say what the bill is on camera, but they charge by the hour for both equipment and skilled labor. So, yeah, not cheap!

Absolutely hooked on Matt's Youtube Channel. He's based out of Hurrricane, near Sandy Hollow sand dunes and Zion national park. Lots of very good info about things we want to do with our Cybertrucks. One very interesting thing about him and his Jeep. He doesn't carry a spare tire. Of course it helps to have all the help you could ever need, just a phone call away. But still interesting.

I've watched enough episodes that I'm starting to get a list of things not to do (and things to do) the next time I travel west!

For instance, I'm going to make sure I know what the normal water level of a lake is, and avoid driving on formerly-underwater ground. It seems like they go out to those lakes every weekend, and I can walk a few hundred yards with a picnic blanket to avoid a towing bill.

Also, I hadn't realized the importance of stacking rocks in offroading. I'll make sure to try that before I make a call...!

Always have a shovel. Any dry lakebed is potential for disaster. What they don't mention on the videos is the god awful smells when you break through the surface sometimes.

These are Expeditionary Vehicles. This is certainly something I would enjoy with every cell of my being. peace
