    Roofnest Falcon versus GFC RTT

    GFC has a forum. If I find the link, i'll post it here. I highly suggest going through the issues people are having. Then deciding whether they are something you can tolerate/deal with fixing if the issue arises.

    Two Provinces - Three States - Quick Round Trip

    Next day we took off to go sight seeing. We were going to hit up Tolfino but saw it was raining on that side of the island, and decided against it. Plus it was more a tourist stop because of a beach, meh. We drove off towards Ladysmith and checked out the Antique stores for a bit, and then...

    Two Provinces - Three States - Quick Round Trip

    Randomly took five days off work with the girlfriend and we went on an unplanned road trip out west from Edmonton. I picked up a used canopy that afternoon before we took off, just in case we needed to stealth camp. I also brought out a Gazelle T4 for the nights we found a camping spot. We...

    Used RTT's - what to look for?

    Check the fabric for any mould or water damage/staining. Try out all the zippers and make sure they work, and don't pop off their tracks. Check the base fabric around the bottom where the zipper goes around to zip up the cover for fraying/signs of the zipper getting caught. The ruggedized have...

    It's running a belltech 3/6 drop (originally had a 4/6). Z71 4X4 with the 5.3L V8. I find 90% of the time I'm camping with friends or with a group and they end up in a spot where a stock truck can drive. Might as well make a simple trip more challenging 🤣

    Automhome Columbus Variant - Review

    I recently picked up an Autohome Columbus built in 2008 and the bug screens are zippered shut (minus the bottom due to flap). I sold an Autohome a couple years ago and had the velcro'd bug screens, so it must have been built a few years earlier. At the time I was told it was newer, but looks...
