I am so sad to hear about Ed dying. When I met him ,back in the 80's, he and Jereen were still racing long distance on horses. I believe what he really invented was the wonderful "Adventurewagon" It has a permanent raised top that is aerodynamicly designed to avoid the problem with wind that the Westphalia is famous for. It has a wooden interior,like a boat. It can sit at a trailhead with the refrigerator running for over a week. I could go on and on about the differences. I have beendriving mine for 26 years and hope to drive it forever. Once two of us lived in it for a year traveling throughout the US. It was on that trip that I learned that people did long distance trails. He will be missedMarmot
