    Huge Price Reduction on the Jackery Explorer 2000 PRO Portable Power Station,

    I bought a refurbished Jackery Explorer 1000 direct from Jackery for $500 (email their customer service department) ; it could be worth seeing if they have any refurbs available for this model. My main complaint with the unit is the meager 12v output of 10Amps in addition to the slippery car...

    GM fullsize AWD Van Info thread

    Perhaps check the manual, thinking the tow/haul button restricts use of overdrive. So if you are on the interstate or flat/downhill highway, you could decide to kick out of tow/haul if you want to take advantage of higher gearing/higher speeds. I usually stay in drive on most highways, unless on...

    Anyone done a Cargo Trailer to Cold Weather Toy Hauler conversion?

    This looks like a great deal and fully loaded per the O.P.'s want list. Might be worth checking out the freight charges for the 2k miles home. The seven foot width seems much more reasonable than 8'-6" width in the first post; I couldn't imaging towing anything max width on some of the forest...

    ITTOG's Truck Camper Build (was 6' x 12' Trailer Conversion)

    I like the red stripe, thinking it would be great if reflective. Perhaps add some brake/running lights too. I got rear ended on the highway last year. More visibility is good, considering the bear graphic is dark.

    Motorbike Overlanding vs 4 Wheels...

    I rented a truck in Punta Arenas to visit Torres del Paine, El Chaltén etc. I brought my backpack gear for camping, yet ended up enjoying the wind/rain blocking cab of the truck for sleeping/chilling (I must be getting soft). I also rented a motorcycle in Santiago and did a 1000 mile loop out to...

    An incident worth talking about. Kinetic Recovery Accident.

    I don't see this as an equipment failure; we all know that anything made can be destroyed with force. The actions of the tow vehicle were destructive and dangerous...period. The inaction of the O.P. almost got him killed. O.P. had his whole crew up the road to help him get unstuck, but he put...

    Heating a small trailer

    Here is a video featuring the Webasco heater...the author is skilled in voicing the heater's sound...haha. My gal and I turn the cooler off when we sleep; guessing we could just shut off the heater too. But when the heaters are starting up or running when it's super cold out the fan is pretty...

    Heating a small trailer

    I'd be all for a diesel parking heater, but I heard one in operation at the snow resort parking lot and it made a heck of a racket. I've been watching YT vids and they confirm that there is significant fan and fuel pump noise. The catalytic heaters, such as the Olympic are silent. Do you have...

    Heating a small trailer

    Here's what I use in my van; 3000 BTU clone of Coleman Blackcat Although flameless, it will catch you on fire with contact, so placing a small cage to keep bedding and such away from heat element is advised.

    Show your Thumper!!

    Thinking you've got a spot in the shop to park the KLR, but the T7 will be a fun new ride. My KLR is parked in a container with a couple other bikes gathering dust; I should prep and sell them too. Good memories from a trip through Baja. Front sprocket oil seal spun loose as I rode into La Paz...

    The transfer case can be rebuilt, as the cases are hard to find.

    2020 Ford F250 on 37s - Expedition Truck Camper Build!

    How are you securing the bikes for long trips? I have mine inside the van, but looking at the camper/truck option and wanting a secure/protected way to store them.

    2019 Sprinter 4x4 Diesel Fully Built - $75k

    What is the height from floor to bottom of bed framing and depth of garage under bed? Could two bicycles fit in garage with a bit of modification?

    Perhaps cross reference the Bilstein/Fox numbers for length and connector type. See my part numbers for a three inch lift front/rear.

    Luggage for a sports bike tour

    Rok Straps will be good for a 30 liter duffle bag on the back. Maybe some heat protection needed for your muffler if rubbing. Add a tank bag or a backpack and be good. No bungees on a bike ever, as they will take your eyeball out; don't ask me how I know...
