    Default Ultimate Bug Out Vehicle (BOV) - Living In A Trash Truck - Amazing

    Living In A Trash Truck - Amazing

    Low profile? Only in town. Semi tractors are used to haul compacted trash, not pickup vehicles.

    Gotta say, a very smooth installation, nice!

    To be truely low profile it needs to be a little rusty with garbage hanging out the back and leaving a trail of trash in its wake. Something like the Chameleon XLE from the SNL skit where the car is a pos on the outside but very luxurious on the inside.

    Lots of wasted space on that upper level, I'd install some cargo racks and cabinets up there along the walls front to back. Better roof access hatch too, a short railing around the top and the roof could be used as more space. They did a heck of a job on that interior though!

    Of course, for a real BOV it has too many windows, it needs gunports and a ringmount around the roof hatch on top. 360 degree night vision cameras too. Reinforced ramming bumper front and rear and an armored panel over that bike on the back.

    Default Wow, trashcar meets Ikea

    Nice job on the interior, but as Kernel said more protection on the windows and some plate to protect/hide the bike.

    Looking it over, the upper level telescopes up when stationary and comes down during travel. Look at the chrome support bars in the corners. I'm having a hard time visualizing how that loft works, though. When down it's close over the kitchen area. Fine when time to sleep, but where does it stow during the day?

    Also, is the side door obstructed when the loft is in "night" position?

    Man that is awesome. O.K. a few changes here and there, maybe.
    Wonder if the compactor is still intact. Hmmm.

    AHH, a Pop Top! Looks like the sidewalls are a bit higher than the bed and rail on the loft so if the top is in the stowed position you couldn't sleep up there but nothing other than the roof has to move. Nothing obstructed except the windows are covered up when the top is in the down position.
