I finally solved a long standing irritant when driving dusty back roads. The problem was pulling into camp, opening up the door to the trailer and finding the bedding covered in fine dust. It drives me NUTS! I've tried all sorts of things to fix it and after searching online I've learned this is a common problem.
Well, I've just installed a Sy-Klone RESPA cabin pressurization unit to the roof rack and plumbed it into the cabin. The positive pressure will prevent the ingress of dust, and as it runs only when the vehicle is running (and is also switched) it won't drain my house batteries.
I haven't yet had the chance to test it on the dirt but I'm convinced this will make me a much happier camper at the end of the day :-)

I recently purchased a pair of Beyond Bungee tie downs for my pop up campers canopy, there were no existing rope to tie it down with and I had recently received one in my BattlBox Subscription. So I bought 2 more because how how amazingly easy they are to use! I’ll add the link below so you can check them out!

Needed something quick and easy for those times when we show up on site way after dark or when it's a weekend trip and the Kodiak is just too much. $75 from Walmart, delivered.

I needed a new stove to replace my 30 year old Coleman. The adaptability and compactness of the stove and pot/pan got my attention. Used it for the first time to make breakfast, didn't even go crazy with it and am happy. Easy to use, easy to clean up, easy to pack away.
