L.L. Bean Launches Bootmobile
Look out, Wienermobiles and Bookmobiles. L.L. Bean is out to kick some mobile butt. Built on an F-250 Super Duty regular cab diesel, the Bootmobile is 13 feet tall and looks like it would fit the Statue of Liberty. It has cameras for top and rear views. The laces, made of 12-strand mooring rope, can be used as tow straps and are capable of handling more than 100,000 pounds. That's well within the Super Duty's capability. The boot will tour the U.S. this year.
