Looking for a new travel grill..... something to take to a park or beach and camping.....small enough to move around and store easy but big enough to cook a nice steak or two while out.

So much to buy..... for now, I'm researching Foxwing Awning. Any issues out there before I pull the plug? Thanks


Sent from my iPad using OB Talk
I have been eye-balling those and the overlanding shower stalls for a while...go big or go home! I’m not sure what make folks think they are made of gold-press-latinum but P.R.I.C.E.Y.!!! I’m planning to build my own. Have welder, will try before I buy... If I had money, I’d be dangerous! Ha! I do like the stuff coming out of Australia (Darchy rtts, awnings, etc). Seems durable. I can copy-cat fab up some batwing arms and brackets, just can’t sew for crap. I contacted a tent-maker and explained what I was looking for in a custom awning skin. I’m looking to have a 180 degree bat-wing with Velcro walls to enclose it. Also a matching shower curtain for a folding shower stall I will fab up at the same time. I’m guesstimating @$300-$500 for both with under $50 in steel from the scrap yard, and will make the frames myself. If I can DIY any of my gear, I feel that much more knowledgeable if it brakes down in the field and get a certain satisfaction if it performs as well or better than retail goods. Plus if I’m spending the same money, I feel I get more for the money I spend...

Timbren bumpstops for just the rear since I'll eventually do Fox air bumps up front. Next will be some plywood once the price on baltic birch comes down (5'x5' is currently $80) or once they even get some stock. Need to settle in and rebuild my rear seat platform to integrate all the electronics underneath.

SetPower AJ50. It's a 53L 12v fridge. Can't wait to use it. Next purchase is a hub tent, or RTT.
Let me know how you like it, I'm shopping for one now.
Seems like a good fridge, based solely on the reviews. I opted for the biggest one, as I have to keep food for 4, sometimes 6.

The last thing I have bought overland related is a Noco battery-jumpstart-box-thing from the Amazon prime day sale. Monday I am dropping off my vehicle at a fabrication shop to have a winch bumper and a set of rock sliders made, so that will be my next purchase.

My fiancée picked up a Noco for me. I haven't tried it yet (thankfully).

I use an old Coleman grill for camping, but for trips to the beach I think something like this butane grill would be nice. I have a friend who lives in NYC who uses this (either on his fire escape or at a park).
