than what's the back seat for?
Melinda, some of us sometimes have to transport more human beings than we care to admit... ;)
This is why I needed two back rows of seats - plus trunk space - on this trans-US trip (already in our sixth state in 7 days... :)

Bonus was the HUD, of course... :D

that's really taking the whole fitting in with the locals a little far, isn't it?

Mine is for moving 2 little humans around ;)

Not groceries though. Not ever! Those bags get wet from the cold/frozen items and you won't want that on the seat.

If I didn't have the kids, that back seat would just be an empty space always.

Well here's your 'Heads Up Display'! (ref: the toilet area in an RV is called the Head) Love the high tech SDRS (Sliding Door Restraint System) I see it is the Coachman model. Will you be driving 4 in hand or 8 in hand Wells Fargo style?

Hahaha! You've actually explored this even deeper than me... I did not even remember this pic...

Lo siento, señor, en Inglés por favor? o_O

Aaaah, mea culpa, I forgot you may not be steeped in the lore of the Wild West. You have reserved the "Coachman" model according to the brochure. I was wondering if you be driving a team of 4 horses (4 in hand) now affectionately called a 4 banger by ICE standards

Or will you be driving an 8 horse team (8 in hand) which is a modified V8

Might as well select the V8 in one orgasmic climax in the celebration of the death of the oil industry. I betcha that thing gets 5 mpg!
We'll see what awaits us...! Since we're likely to drive 5k miles in total, I'd rather try to get 10 mpg!!! I'm on a budget with this party of 6!! :eek:
