How was the washboarding into Trona?


Trona itself is all paved. Trona Falls...Jeep road. Pinnacles was a slow driving in an RV/trailer road.

Sorry, I meant Trona Pinnacles - "slow driving in an RV/trailer road".


There is something special about camping in an RV.

Wow Gary, thanks for sharing! Lots of places we still need to see that didn't know existed!
Your camper is the BOMB! Never seen a lifted 4x4 traditional Class C.
Factory conversion or "home" improvement project?

That right there, may be the key for me in the future. Who wouldn't want a 4wd C with a lift kit?

So..if you can just crawl and be patient, you shall be rewarded. If not...you'll not be happy.

There is a shop just north of you...in Kamloops BC, Sportsman Light Truck..they have FB of course. They will convert what you bring to them. That is who did mine. Great guys and with your peso being worth 1.30 CDN,kind of takes the bite out of the ticket.

If you carry a compressor deflating the tires helps a lot.
