Your desire to just push buttons with weak arguments is more tiring than Tradibans. 

At least try and be original.

Whatever. I've done months in each a Subaru, Matrix, PU, and van. There is absolutely no comparison when it has been raining for 4 days or is 0F in the morning. But I suppose if you don't leave the SW and only camp when it is nice you won't appreciate the difference.

LOL @ the Taco drivers. You nailed it. They really all shirtless, flat brimmed baseball cap wearing bros giving each other high fives and smashing beer cans on their foreheads while picking fights with people for no reason.

 

It's been a long time since someone called me "bro" (as a joke,) And if I went shirtless anywhere outside, I'd probably get arrested, unless it was someplace far out in the boonies that I could drive to in my Taco, where most other folks couldn't get to unless they had a stout 4x4 and didn't mind getting it scratched up.


ps, I listen to Deadmau5

Lots of Taco haters out there.

If my home is my home 24/7, am I dirtbagging?

I don't give a shit what type of vehicle you sleep in as long as you don't have dogs that bark every time someone comes in late or gets up early for a alpine start.

  but for some reason there seems to be a large number of insecure shallow people on this site who feel the need to bash  people for choosing a van over a pickup truck or a honda civic or a prius.

It's because you're so pretentious about it.

I am surprised no one has said that owning a sprinter is aid.

You need a van to camp in bad and cold weather?  You’re an inexperienced wimp.

Camp a few nights? No. Live for months at a time? Yes. Inexperienced? Hahaha. Wimp? Whatever you say tough guy.

Depends on how dirty it is and what you mean by "bagging".

Lots of defensive van and Taco owners out there!  It's like the climbers' version of Ford vs. Ferrari.  Poor dirtbags versus rich douchebags.

If you lived in a van it would be all good bro. 

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
