    Best $200 (or less) Tool Kit for College Student?

    My rule of thumb: Only give tools I know the recipient knows how to use safely. Depending on my time and relationship, I will spend the time to quiz them and/or demonstrate its use.

    Truck Camper that Sleeps 4?

    When I bought my 8' Grandby it was set up to sleep 5: 2 on overhang, 3 on queen down; all east/west. With enough room in the back for a small fridge and one person standing (two if you're hugging). If you are handy you could remodel a 6.5' or 8' with a table/bed in the front that sits 4 and...

    Hallmark let me down

    My FWC Grandby is 45 years old; original exterior. Heard ATC is pretty responsive to customers.

    RV Refrigerators - what is the current trend?

    One doesn't need that big a system. I run a 2.0 cu.ft. NorCold compressor fridge (my biggest energy consumer) on 200W solar and 208AH GC2 batteries. Usually at 80% in morning (Trimetric 2030 reported) and 100% by 1 pm.

    Paint for bare metal trailer and frame.

    POR-15 if you want it to last. Spray painting requires special equipment. You can apply it with a brush; paint outside (outgases isocyanates) with a breeze. One of my projects has lasted 30 years of hard use. With any coating, prep is 90% of it lasting.
