    Overkill Campers

    Curious to know whether anyone requesting a refund ever got one?

    Overkill Campers

    Man, sorry to hear that. I would consult an attorney if you don't hear something soon. If they haven't refunded your money by now it's probably because they don't have it to refund. In cases like this, the people who pound the door the loudest will get pacified first. An attorney could check...

    Gaia vs Onx

    I apologize for taking this a bit off topic. I will likely start a new thread. I contacted the developer of Scenic Maps, and got a very quick and complete answer to all my questions. I'm pretty excited to give it a try, and pretty excited just to get a reply! I sent a message to Gaia days...

    Woody2, this is very helpful, thank you. This looks promising!

    Gaia vs Onx

    Reviving this thread and hoping for some answers. I have been trying to use Gaia and really struggling. I can spend hours watching tutorials, and go out and sort of use it, then come back in a month and can't remember all the convoluted details to save my soul! I recently tried to use it on a...

    Overkill Campers

    Business 101? LOL! Ignore your detractors? What if your detractors are your paying customers, as in this case? Clueless is the word that comes to mind. Anytime someone goes after the messenger and ignores the message, you can bet the message is true. Interestingly, I was just on the O-K...

    There is nothing wrong with taking deposits. Lots of builders do that, and lots of them deliver what they promise. The cost of capitol is a real thing. If a small builder has to finance everything themselves, that cost has to be picked up by the buyer. The deposit system however depends on...

    Overkill Campers

    Products made in China are no better or no worse than the people who contract with them. If you ask them to build a world class product, and work with them to achieve that, they will. The examples are all around us. If you ask them to build a cheap knock off, they will. Most of the treachery...

    Overkill Campers

    Just another data point. At some point, I don't know when exactly, Overkill switched from using Arctic Tern Windows, which are top quality with a proven history, to some off-brand window. It says it on their website, but much of their advertising out there still states that they use Arctic...

    U.S. alternative to Seitz top hinged windows

    Are the Mekuwa windows DOT certified? Are they gas filled, or air filled?

    U.S. alternative to Seitz top hinged windows

    I think that looking at the thermal transmission numbers is probably a better measure than R value. Glass is a poor choice if insulating value is a concern. Acrylic is 4x to 5x lower thermal transmission than glass. Even one pane of acrylic will beat any glass scheme you can come up with...

    Antenna mounting center of hood?

    So I'm looking at installing a CB on a truck with a fiberglass cabover. I've read everything I can find about antenna placement, and basically the answer is: there is no good place. From a purely functional standpoint, the only ground plane available is the hood of the truck. Second best...

    Why aren't more tacoma owners up in arms about their trucks?

    I for one am thankful for the OPs effort to make this a topic of discussion. I've put a ton of money and work into my 2nd gen Tacoma to make it offroad worthy. I do believe that all the TRD OFFROAD stuff is nonsense designed for marketing to urban buyers looking for an image. There is very...

    U.S. alternative to Seitz top hinged windows

    Fair enough, but the link you posted would NOT be helpful. Dometic window division (Seitz) does not support the North American market. You will get nothing but stone walling. There is zero support for their window products here either. A truly helpful link is this one: www.ternoverland.com...
