Dual Sighting in Las Vegas


VegasFlyer

Recommended Posts

We saw two very impressive late model 780's running together in the Northwest part of Las Vegas yesterday.

 

One truck was white and the other was silver. Both were tandem with full beds with a RZR on each bed and both pulling a toyhauler.

 

Do we have some folks in the Vegas area who might be keeping a low profile?

Formulating the correctly rated and priced tow vehicle is a mathematical exercise.
Many come to the class 8 decision. It makes so much sense viewed lots of ways.

I also have met many HDT'ers that knew nothing of our groups.

When we can, we sure tell them.

There are probably hundreds, if not thousands, of HDTers running around out there that have no knowledge of Escapees, the forum, or that there are Rallies. I constantly run into others who don't have a clue we all exist and talk to each other.

I find it had to believe that anyone could not know that WE exist. After all we are all such charming, friendly folks. :D

That makes total sense. We were just hoping that by chance, there might be a couple local lurkers in the area......lol

I believe that would have been myself, and my buddy/neighbor. There is actually three 780's in our group and soon to be 4.

Mine: D16, iShift

Agree, very nice rigs. We ran into another HDTer in Crossville after the ECR. He was also unaware of this forum and the rallies, so gave him the link. Outside of the horse people are there other forums out there devoted to HDTs and RVing?

 

Thanks SuiteSuccess.

This is the first site I came across in regards to HDT/RV's. I came across it while trying to find a 780 for a friend. And honestly, I dont even know how or what brought me here! The web is an endless rabbit hole of information :P

Send your friends the links for here. There are several rallys every year as well, 1 west coast, east coast, and middle which is in Kansas this fall.

None of them are computer savvy,,, Nor care to attend rallys.. We already struggle to go camping once a month or so.. and that is just to get away and ride (offroad/RZR's)

What RZR's are you guys putting on the bed of your rigs? We have a 730 that we pull our 45' weekend warrior with that houses our sand car in our 17' garage. So we were thinking about buying a rzr xp turbo 1000 for back up and want to transport it on the rear of the truck. Have you have any problems with LEO's?

We run either an XP1k or XPT (2 seaters) on the back of the trucks. I know we are over limit in width, but I have been told as long as we're within our mirrors, most LEO wont bother you. We keep it under the speed limit and dont drive like idiots, which helps. I am not sure about Cali... I am sure in Glamis they may hassle you. I know at Dumont we have never been bothered.

Who did the bed for you and friend #1?

Friend #1 owns a welding shop here in town. He built his bed and I painted it. Him and I built my bed. We even built 30gal fuel tanks for the toys that fit under the bed between the frame rails

I dont have any of his, but mine is almost 3" wider, his has aluminum diamond plate, mine is steel with grey bed liner coating

There are several for sale...... ;)

I think the problem with most of my friends is that they don't take traveling serious enough to make the jump. They are also too busy making the progression from small to large that they cant see how much easier and cheaper it would be to skip the middle steps.

That's pretty brave putting a XP1K back there. I have wanted to do that myself, but too chicken to do so. They're right at 121" long (with paddles). I routinely carry my General back there, which is 118", though. It doesn't look as long since the bed adds an extra 6" or so.

 

Great looking trucks!

 

 

 

Thanks BMZ! My buddy has been doing it for 4/5 years now, and I've been doing it for 1.5 years. Never had an issues, but we also dont drive like idiots... :P

 

I'm headed to Phoenix this weekend to pick up a 2012 780 for a friend... I'll try and get pics as he repaints it and starts building a bed.
