    Thanks for the pics. This is exactly what I wanted to see.

    Happy to talk you through my build process and how I decided on the way I'd build the bed, or the differences I found between the cargo and passenger versions as well.

    I'm interested in this as well. Looks as though the TC has more interior height than a minivan as well, that'd a big plus for me.

    Roomy and clearance. Need one with snow plow mounts to rationalize ownership though.

    Rent it out to action movie production companies to offset the cost of ownership.

    I almost bought a pinzgauer a few years ago just to bring it to cyclocross. It would have looked so rad.

    Then I remembered most venues were around 1h30 of driving including a lot of highway and realized how miserable it would be.

    Thanks. Now I’ll have to move. Stop posting pictures of my airport car/crashpad and its parking location.

    That was my first choice but I don't like green.

    Pinzgauer would be terrific for roadbikes and mountainbikes alike with awesome capability in all weather.
    As mentioned, the cabin comfort experienced on highway roadtrips would probably be rather brutal. LOL!

    This one is pretty close the perfect setup for a CX race announcer. A couple of speakers and you can just drive right up to where you need to be on the course.
    This is my substitute for pistol and ball. With a philosophical flourish Cato throws himself upon his sword; I quietly take to the bike.
