    No but I now know that Indiana is The Trailer State. I would have guessed Alabama.

    Never seen it. That hitch is pretty lightweight for a 5th wheel rig, not much tilt is allowed for either. Maybe why it never caught on. And that roof rig is not attached to the frame! I could see the trailer ripping the roof off that beetle. I'm thinking this is a photo-op.

    I've seen some pretty sharp teardrop campers for Beetles, though.

    I understand the new jeeps are much better. I had an 05 or so and it was a pile of garbage. I mean a total piece of shit and only had like 60k miles.

    That video is proof that no matter how hard you try there is nothing that will make a minivan cool.

    i was going to say i know jeeps have always had some of the worst reliability ratings but everyone i know that owned one (grand cherokees mostly it seems) almost always liked them and would often buy another. and the engineering/reliability has improved greatly even though i think chrysler is owned by fiat?

    i dont think many were great past the 7 yr mark (for those who hate car notes). i remember the interior pieces often fell apart long before the drivetrain. that shits annoying.

    Jeeps had a reputation for rusting body panels once, but they seem to have gotten past that.
