I use an RTV to hunt in south texas - I like to get into the brush and corn senderos - friend of mine is making one of these for me. No hydrolics - very lightweight and easy to remove in off season - he is making mine where it does not take up any of my bed space - it goes up to 14 feet and very stable. Can't wait to use mine - second one is a video of it in action

That thing would be rockin' with my 280 lbs in it but that is awesome and looks like it could work great for the unfat folks.

I seen some that guys used in their jeeps and pickups back in the 90's down in Mexico. They were 15'-20' towers. They had someone drive while one guys sat in the top. They had to guy them back to the front bumper and back bumper in 4 places. They did have a pucker factor up that high for sure.

How do you remove it? Does it take more than one person?

takes two people to lift it out - it is very lightweight but very stable - I weigh 190 and went up in it and no rocking or moving - now in a high wind it would be a no go - but you don't have to lift it all the way up - it is slick deal

yeah this is not for driving while up - just pull up in a sendero, raise it, and see over the brush
