The Tiger Adventure Vehicle

Isn’t it a beauty?

The Breakdown

The expected, final cost is $170,000. This includes funds to cover some additional medical expenses. Yes, I dream big! As the old saying goes: “Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you’ll land among the stars.” I’m aiming for my moon! Want to help me hit it?

The immediate need (within 1 week) is $15,000 for the down payment. I need this amount within a week. The remainder of approximately $145,000 will be due in mid-April when this vehicle is finished. Also, I am looking for $10,000 additional funds for medical bills and other expenses related to my cancer.

The Description

Welcome to my dream! If you’ve clicked this far, you are at least interested in what I want to do. So, I will introduce you…(cue brass bands and confetti)….”And now, the star of the show, the one and only, Bengal Tiger!”

This beautiful beast is a Tiger Adventure Vehicle, specifically the Bengal model. It is built on a Ford F-350 4×4 diesel chassis. It can tackle the mud, climb the rocks, and grip the snow. Together, this dependable beast of burden and I want to conquer the world. The Tiger is manufactured by Provan Industries, LLC in West Columbia, South Carolina. Check out their website here.
