XP and the White Rim trail

Recommended Posts

Agreed. Good video that captures one of the greatest drives on this earth.  Looked smoother than I remembered it.  Of some interest I was talking with Bill Swails in the remote past (CEO of Earthroamer) and he related that he tried going under that overhang just once - and damaged his roof, even with a spotter, airing down etc.. Good reason to have a lower roofline!!

Bill traversed the White Rim Trail in the original Earthroamer he built for himself. It bears little resemblance to the production XV LT's that followed, which would have no chance of making it through that trail. Even his original rig barely managed to get through due to limited overhead clearance and, as mentioned, not without damage.
