Just because you can't afford something or don't think it is worth the price tag does not mean it is "woo-woo" or that someone else can. It just means the person saying it probably has sour grapes syndrome when they scorn things they cannot have.


Very true. And, we are on a forum dedicated to "camping" with items that far exceed the price of a sleeping bag. A pretty first world problem juggling living in one house and going on vacation in another mobile abode with all the comforts some cultures can only dream of having.

Yeah, see how fast those suspension parts will break under the heavy weight of the Cybertruck going over the whoops on the trails. I would love to see the Cybertruck in a race like the Baja 1000. Althouth they would have to make a new class for it because there is not way it will complete it in the 20-25 hours other vehicles do. maybe in 40-50 hours if you can get a generator out in the desert to recharge it.

I'll bet they sell many of them, even though dealers will mark them up over MSRP. I think Jeep could do something similar with their Gladiator. I applaud the manufactures for making these models since many customers want them rather than having to make cars that the government thinks they should.

Would you like to place a bet on wether or not it will live up to those expectations? TRX is real, and will be available soon. Not holding my breath on that Tesla (and from the original artist renderings, I'd never consider it even if it does come out. It is the one truck that makes a new Chevy look good.....).

Would that be more or less useless than a Fleetwood Pride?
