Get one now and with a few modifications you could be ready for the Dakar rally 2009 in South America in the truck (T4) class.

Very cool, but if you're going to go that far, why not a roof mounted garbage bin converted into a hot tub.

Bet they can't be much worse than the $500 or so per tire cost on a big class A.

If you have to ask, then you're not gonna be very happy with the gas mileage either...

Maybe it's better to compare fuel & maintenance costs to rent or property taxes.
