    Super large blanket for RTT

    Curios how cold do you go? Would like a 1" matress topper kill 2 birds with one stone, give you insulation and and extra padding? You might find them similar price to a giant blanket.

    Rooftop tent

    5 will be tight, andi would get tired if i had to get up few times a night everytime someone needs to go restroom, someone shifting and rocking the car, taking care of kids on the ladder, ect. As your kids grow it will just get smaller. The bigger they are the harder they are to put up and put...

    Small Propane Tank Selection and Storage Dilemma

    I refill the disposable 1lb tanks, have not had a issue. They fill up to around 80% with a $5 adapter i got at walmart (said it was specifically for 1lb cans)

    Small Propane Tank Selection and Storage Dilemma

    Convenience is greater than price. I love my 5lbs tank. You can feel it getting empty, (can also buy a hose with a guage, or add a guage) I have a van so i carry it inside i like that it has a actual valve to close. I top it off before going on a big trip 4days+. Its payed itself off in a year.

    What's your campfire in fire season or no campfire areas?

    Yup, just built one out of a 50 cal. Box it was too big, nice that it will hold the hose inside. Build one with 5.56 box and its perfect. 1/2" ridgid pipe drill out some holes. Some home depot pieces and 7$ propane valve and hose. Few lava rocks

    What is the last thing you bought and plan to buy?

    Nice! sounds like a normal table height! Ajustability on uneven surfaces is cool, Especially for my black stone griddle if its not level the grease pools on a corner.

    Solar motion lights

    Was wondering if anyone uses the solar motion sensor lights around their rig or campsite? Sounds like a easy solution to place on the rig (not permanant) and or around the campsite, To spot animals and just general security. Keep ome around the cooler or bear box to turn on automatically...

    Rear hatch lift support upgrade for mounting gear.

    Sorry for the dirty van. Got the lift supports and rotopax installed last night. The new lift supports open fast and need more effort to close. Nothing to crazy. (Without the rotopax installed) Bolted the standard rotopax mount directly to the panel. (Little disappointed on the play the jug as...

    Bald Tires

    Either they cant afford it, but most likely they are not into it. Figured it out after they bought all the gear. Now they keep it to look cool. And are able to wear carhart clothing to their accounting jobs lol. Its like any other hobby... only difference is you can show it off eveyday lol...
