“Yeti” the Power Wagon

2018 Ram Power Wagon

Objective

We’re former owners of a second gen Nissan Xterra. We compromised our way into a Power Wagon in late 2018. While the Power Wagon spends its’ nine-to-five working construction and hauling trailers (unlike the Xterra which spent its’ weekdays being fanned in the garage and eating grapes) — our objective for a rig remains unwavering.

Utilize the Power Wagon to put us in the remote, awe-inspiring places, with people (and pets!) we love, doing the things that make the weekday grind worth it.
