I've said for years if you want to check someone's IQ out, just put them behind a steering wheel!

I was suprised to find out you didn't need a special liscense as long as it is registered as a RV for personal use.  I found out at the DMV.  I asked her to at least give me the training book.

She did, it was free, and i did not have to wait in line, or take time off work to read it.
I keep it on the bus with the manuals.

I ventured around the block and parking lots, run to store, etc. for a month or two before i ventured out on the highway. First highway test trip was to Harbor Frieght on early sunday morning when traffic was sparse.

then camping at friends houses, then eventually a 2 hour trip to campground.

just my way, I'm a slow learner so had to build my own comfort level.
It's all fun and games til someone gets hurt. ;)

Mine's mounted in the spare tire compartment. The bumper flips up on a hydraulic cylinder. I mounted it on a swivel so I could get wide dispersal.

The grenade launchers are behind the flip up headlights.  ::)



I LIKE the flip up head light idea..... Hadn't thought of that!

I considered the spare tire bay for the 50 cal but what do you do if the guy causing the problem is 3 or 4 vehicles ahead???


BruceKnee - Thanks for the vote but I have way to many skeletons in my closet to run!   ;D ;D

Oh Sorry... I was thinking "Counter Measures".... :o :o :o

I personally prefer the "Oil Slick" spray unit. Ohh.. wait!! Some of you guys already run with those.. ::) ::)
The Smoke Cloud generator works good too... Downshift and the problems behind you disappear.. 8)
