The camper literally obstructs nothing except sunlight. [emoticon]


Looks like some spectacular views! Your windshield seems to stay cleaner too.

People do see what they want to see... and I choose to not View.

...but if I did, my opinion is that I would want to see 40-45% of the Abbey Huntsman scenery and the other 55-60% of Elizabeth Hasselbeck... either way, that is 100% pretty good scenery.

FYI as a CYA, I did not have a TV in my TC nor a TV pulling my TC, is that OK?

LMKWYT,
LOL.

Like button! And more interesting than arguing about the view out of a windshield…

Just posting an example of how bad the view is from my front seat. [emoticon]

That's Big Rock Candy Mountain, about 12 miles from home.

It takes a genius to figure out that the bigger the windshield the broader the view.

Pick your poison, a Class A would be my last choice for an RV.

The view from inside a Hino is nice too. They have HUGE windshields. I always thought it was like going to an IMAX theater.

[image]

It almost looks like my Skyline Week Ender extended further than my Lance does but I'm quite sure they're the same. Maybe I'll measure them when I get back home.

One time while driving through the Ave of the Giants in CA I did feel the extended cabover cut down on my view. [emoticon]

I'd never own an extended cab or a crew cab pickup. There are not a lot of nice used campers out there for regular cab trucks, nor are there a lot of newer used regular cab pickups. LOL

Like most of you, I love my setup.

I figured some of you would like the topic. [emoticon]

I've had the privilege of meeting and talking with Abby Huntsman's late grandfather Jon Huntsman SR, the founder of the Huntsman Cancer Institute.

He was the epitome of a true gentleman.
