I have ridden in the element before, a friend of mine had one. If I recall, you could actually remove the mats and stuff, and hose the inside out. dont know if I would do that , but I think it was possible.

Have not had to HOSE it out...but pretty easy to wipe down with wet cloth. Not as bouncy/and has loads more creature-comforts than my previous CJ Jeep.
Doesn't have the 'jeep cachet'... but we're having fun!

I was reading all the welcomes for Bludog. I know that you are full timers. Most of us are full time at the job or at home, or both. I respect the ones that go to work, and the ones that stay home. We are tired of work, and need to go camping. After a long winter, camping on a cool lake hits the spot like nothing else. The sounds of green trees, and the wind blowing in them. Give me some of that quick.

Well said Grace!
We worked 7am-8pm for decades. Camping was mad, crazy dashes over long weekends, fighting traffic to veg-out someplace spectacular.
Two things gradually changed: kids grew up (into their own rat-races). And last several years have been frustrated with corporate moves, downsizing and off-shoring. (Grumble, grumble). Were being asked to please turn-off the lights as our last act for one company after another.

Soooo at 50...decided to take a break from that lifestyle: blow-the-funk-off. Had great fun plotting our escape!

Selling the house/expensive commuter-beheamoth autos, gave us some financial wiggle-room to explore at a slower pace. Only been at this 15 months...sure has opened our eyes.
Ooooppps sorry so long-winded!

I think that is fantastic you can do that--I am sure you had to make some lifestyle changes, which many people are not willing to do. More power to you and enjoy-life is too short!!

Well it's an enviable lifestyle change. For me when I was young going camping was relaxing. My Dad went because he loved fishing and being in the water. Being outdoors, and away from your house, and all it cares, is just right. Now, as an adult, I live in the city, and so we go to Sandy Bottom. It's those surroundings that I long for.

We do need to go full time camping. But, most of have our little responsibilities staring us right in the face. They give us the gusto to feed them, and work to put roof over the head. They have such cute faces too. But our time of resting is coming very soon. Spring, and then summer are coming fast.
