A total waste of money for the rich to splurge on for street cred.

A guy with a $300 deer rifle and some ammo and clear line of sight can stop it with little effort. I can think of about 20 ways to stop with the simple household equipment or parts and tools.

Fire, road spikes, chainsaw, rocks, and so forth.

Perfect transportation for the end of times isn't a vehicle at all.

The horse will serve you much better than that over priced piece of crap. Not to mention you'll easily save 300 grand even if you bought a small herd.

300 grand could be spent on things you might actually need.

The FLIR camera and " military grade emp protection device " are interesting but hardly worth that kind of money. As the gentleman above has stated, easy to stop that thing. Which means you'll be sitting there watching the bad guys on your FLIR camera as they swarm over this over priced toy and that's when the person(s) inside will realize they dropped over a quarter mil on a coffin with wheels.

I stand by the horse. For more reasons than I have time to explain. Just one thing. No one is getting very far in vehicles post shtf. At the start of it I suspect most roads will be gridlocked. But even the roads that aren't will be dangerous. That thing will draw all kinds of attention I assure you. Folks in rural areas where roads may be utilized will be keeping an eye out for trouble. Maybe most would just let you cruise on through but then again, maybe not.

Fuel. That thing has over a thousand ponies and it's likely pretty damn heavy. Throw in a few folks, their gear, water, food and maybe a few Jerry cans of fuel so your likely not even gonna squeeze 10 mpg out of it. If your not stopped and killed or forced to walk you might go a few hundred miles on the fuel you have. What's the plan when you run out of fuel?

If you must travel your best bet is to not be seen. The best way to do that is overland. I don't care what kind of capability that thing has, it's not getting far through the woods without a trail at least.

If you still want a versatile capable vehicle you can get or build your own for much less that will get you just as far as this hyped up luxury gimmick

I consider this more of a toy rather than an end of the world bug out vehicle but I'd be willing to bet I'd get just as far, if not farther than that thing with it. At a tiny fraction of the cost.

Is one that does not use fuel, and can be used to cut fuel.

I live in a wooded area so sunny spots change throughout the day. With your setup I could just move the whole deal to a different spot as needed.

A $350,000 Jeep Wrangler?
While that 800 horsepower is spinning the tires into chocolate donuts and burying itself my neighbor’s rusted Subaru Brat will cruise by with his kid’s in the back shooting at the zombies.

A friend in SC told me it took him 8 hours to get from Charleston to Columbia during a hurricane evacuation. Some ran out of fuel that weren't prepared and service stations along the way ran out of fuel. That's without bad guys trying to steal or kill.

So a BOV might be only for one day's use unless one can get out early. The best plan if one is serious is to get out and learn to live on the land now before disaster strikes.

I am going to bug in as I don't think anyone is going to get far from home in a vehicle and I fear that what I don't anticipate could cost me my life at the worst or squash all my plans at the least.

Ole Festus from the days of GunSmoke would agree with you 110% on that. His mule was named Ruth even though there were a few of them used over the years of that great western show.

No special diets like horses require. They'll eat anything. Won't get you there as fast as a horse but, I'd almost bet the distance they can cover will outdo that horse at the end of the day.

As for my current BOV, I've got a '95 F150, 2wd, 302 V8, 35 gallons of fuel on board (get me between 600-700 miles on a trip) with a Gem Top Canopy on that back. In the back is where all the goodies are. Two single bunks (Might take one out or make it a bunkbed on one side so I can put in some cabinets on the passenger side to have a surface for cooking, maybe a hand pump sink, 12v/110v cooler under the cabinet, big ole Marine battery, have a battery isolator under my hood to charge the main battery and the marine battery. Have a Fantastic Fan that fits in the roof vent on top to circulate some air.

I'd love to find a small RV type A/C unit I could put on the roof but, it's have to be low enough that my jon boat can still go on the racks up there. Still pondering at least one solar panel.

Got one of those black shower bags that you fill with water and hang out in the sun so you can have a warm shower sometime. Hand it from my awning or a nearby tree.

I want to get an actual roll up awning but, right now, this past weekend I picked up a blue tarp setup complete with tent poles. I've going to put grommet holes in it so I can fasten one side to the top of my canopy. Might have to put some on the outside corners for the tent poles if they're not already on there.

Bench seat in front makes for another bed.

Got a bunch of those sun deflectors you put up in your front window to keep the sun out. I put snaps in them and have the make part of the snaps mounted above and below the windows in the canopy.

Gonna put a motorcycle rack on the front bumper, hopefully I can find one with a 2" receiver so I can carry it on the back as well.

ICOM 706 HF/VHF radio for listening and talking to other folks out there. Police scanner, CB radio as well.

It's definitely a stealth rig so I can park it just about anywhere and nobody will know I'm in there unless I put the tarps out.

I'd love to find a high top rook like what's on some of the camper style cargo vans and mount that on the roof of my canopy but, that will interfere with my boat and whatever else I out up there.

It's a work in progress and if I ever upgrade to a newer truck, all this stuff will go right on it as well.

Thinking about mounting some wooden cabinets over the passenger side above the stove/sink are for additional storage, maybe like pots and pans, dry food, etc.

I've got a few small trailers and I've though about converting a 4'x8' trailer I have into a box trailer. Aluminum frame, using 4'x8' coroplast signs from election signs you can get for free. Might make that a double layer for more stability.

It keeps me busy and when I need to pull over and take a nap, I just gotta find a rest stop or a parking lot and park away from all the traffic.

Oh not at all. If I was a millionaire I'd have one. It's cool.

Even then though I'd not use it after the world ends. It's not going far under those circumstances.

The old Stanley Steamer has a niche here. I've seen those run on coal or charcoal, as well as the more usual kerosene. The truck versions were pretty simple to service, and, being steam, were not demanding of expensive high strength alloys.

If I could afford one ... I'd get an Earth Roamer. I used to deliver supplies to their manufacturing plant in Colorado. Awesome on the inside and the outside.

I'd post pictures but since I started using Brave instead of Google or Firefox, I lost the ability to post pictures.
