    RTT w/ Factory rails - Risks?

    The process of unfolding the tent to the side flexed the roof due to the leverage of the overhang. The tent was at the lower end of the weight spectrum.

    RTT w/ Factory rails - Risks?

    I saw a flip type small RTT on a kl with aftermarket cross bars. The factory rails flexed the roof quite a bit while unfolding with no additional weight in the tent. The tent was one of the lighter ones available.

    Second Row Seat Delete, Functional for Daily Duties?

    When I had my Cherokee I would regularly take out the rear seat bottom. It came out quickly and made carrying stuff easier. If I remember correctly it came out without tools.

    Finally beginning my build! 2015 Dodge Grand Caravan

    I like this build. While driving My Mazda5 I took a scenic route in Colorado that got rough quickly. It made it fine. I know a Caravan is much more capable.

    Single Seat Dimensions

    Maybe a little out of the box but the middle of an f150 bench seat is removable and about that narrow.

    Help; trying to build tall footed roof rack, Mercedes Westfalia

    I have had yakima tall feet and shortened them. The yakima rain gutter mounts are multiple pieces. I don't know why you could not make your own spacer with a longer bolt and make your own tall towers. If you want thule, call them, you can probably order directly from them.

    The Cherokee is back?

    Who cares that it is ugly? It is form over function vs function over form. If you want jeep to continue building Wrangler's then they have to build these. Government fuel economy regulations caused this. It needs to be aero to get good mpg. FWD/AWD platforms are comfortable for day to day use...

    The Cherokee is back?

    I don't dislike it The Liberty is the Cherokee elsewhere and stock for stock the Liberty is a much better 4x4 then the Cherokee. I own both a Cherokee 92 and a Liberty 08 and the liberty is light years ahead of the xj. If you want hardcore get a wrangler, if you want a daily that can handle bad...

    not for USA (yet): Fiat Strada compact pickup

    I prefer ugly vehicles. The uglier the better. I can't see it when I drive it, so what it looks like does not matter. I would totally get one of these as a DD. It would be a good bicycle hauler/light duty camping vehicle. Easy to drive, easy to park, a vehicle for 99% of the time.

    Need help finding a tent - Family of 5

    I would say base camp 6 from rei. We are 4 people with a dog and it has plenty of room. We have had it in high winds (60 mph) plus and horrible rain and it has been problem free. We have a piece of indoor/outdoor carpet that is cut to protect the inside floor of the tent. No tent is perfect...
