    New 270 Awning available.

    Alia176. First, let me say thanks for putting together the list and maintaining it. I just wish you would have started this thread before I bought my Rhino Batwing a couple of years ago. I had no idea there were that many available. (Google and I don't have a good working relationship.) The...

    Fridge with digital temperature control?

    I have an ARB 50qt Series 1, chest type. It has a digital display. I did test the accuracy when I first got it, thermometer in a glass of water. I was within a degree or two. It will do better than 40-degree below ambient. I kept ice cream sandwiches frozen for my daughters volleyball team...

    How do you manage trash?

    I would blame Bigfoot's pet raccoons. Many years ago, a couple of newbie campers in our group thought that weighing down the bag with the marshmallows in it with the silverware would keep it from being carried off. The neighboring campsite thought the cans of Mountain Dew would be safe outside...

    Drawer Slide Recomendation

    Thanks for the info. I got the idea from a van build I read about a while ago. Makes some sense in concept. Apparently it doesn't quite translate to the real world well.

    Drawer Slide Recomendation

    Strongly recommend one locking and one not. Trying to hold down both lock releases and pull the slide doesn't work. Trust me. Have a set of 5' Accurides in the back of my truck for almost 4 years now. Have an ARB 50qt bolted on the end. No issues. Still work well. Kind of a high-jack of...

    Transporting a kayak question

    I've been up and down the I-80 / I-76 corridor too many times to count over the years. That said, I have always wanted to try canoe / kayak from Boulder to Omaha on the South Platte. Might go stir crazy by the end, but it would provide a unique perspective of the area. I figure it is around...

    Transporting a kayak question

    Calicamper, thanks for the advice. I do plan on having 2 on the bow. Last night's test fit showed that the straps I have aren't quite long enough to reach the driver's side loop.

    Transporting a kayak question

    NOPEC, if you have ever driven across western Nebraska and eastern Colorado, you would understand why I want to drive 84. :) I will look into a cover.

    Transporting a kayak question

    Hey all, I have a new (to me) kayak. It is a Current Designs, Whistler, 14'-6". I need to move it. It has to last 590 miles at 84 mph on my roof. I have the Yakima j-hook mounts. I have the bow lines going down to hooks on the side of the hood. Stern line to the receiver. (And yes, I will have...

    1986 toyota 1 ton 4x4 build

    There are a lot of people building tear drop trailers out of foam and fiberglass. Check out www.tnttt.com "Teardrops n Tiny Travel Trailers". You can learn a lot about fiberglassing from that crew.

    Speedphreak, thanks for the ideas. I am surprised none of the parts websites had these.

    Front License Plate mount

    They tried changing the law about 4-5 years ago. Shot down. People are a little stuck in te heir ways here. There are some who believe change is good. Just for everybody else.

    Front License Plate mount

    NatersXJ6, I like the idea of upside down. I will have to look at that. ericsvs, I have been trying to come up with some good excuses too. But with my luck , I will get the officer who spilt the coffee in his lap and dropped a donut while catching up to me. (No, I don’t disrespect cops. I...
