    Tired of all the misinformation on #vanlife?

    $4 grand is not bad I think when i looked it was the same old dealer game . the one they had in AWD also had many other options and was 12 thousand more then a base van in two wheel drive . I think the Transit will prove most useful in the snow ,you can give it a good workout , but your not...

    This is good advice ,but there are two new vans that come with AWD or 4x4 . but you need pretty deep pockets .

    Mercedes sprinters

    You should go to Down to Mob videos ,they beat the hell out of one . But it did the job . Don't think I would do that to a 150 K van

    New van, new adventures

    Thank you ,I guess I will put on a new set of KO2s and a front coil over kit. And explore the limits. I am thinking length and width will keep me out of most places i should not go .As far as shifting ,most if not all vehicles have to be stopped to go into or out of low range . My 2019 F250...

    New van, new adventures

    Nice Van ,I am wondering how many times you have actually needed the 4 wheel drive ? I have purchased a 170 dually and wondering how off road it can go . It is not a 4X4 though .

    In regards to duallies: why can't you just get thinner tires to increase the gap

    I am glad to have found this conversation . Having just purchased a Sprinter dually . What about in a situation where you would normally air down ?Just more tires to air back up ? Or would the sidewalls rub if you aired down ? From my experience with dump trucks and tractors ,its impotent to...

    Tired of all the misinformation on #vanlife?

    They say a build is not complete until you have used it for a year and taken out all the things you do not need . I sort of got lucky as the camper i have been building out ,i needed to use before it was completed. After just spending 12 nights in it I realize the cabinets and cupboards i was...

    2008 Dodge sprinter last build

    Hi I have just picked up a 2008 3500 dodge sprinter high top. It was a fire rescue truck ,and only has 40,000 miles on it . My plan is to do a camper build . My question is ,it has twin rear wheels and tires . Will this be OK for light off road ? Or should i be going to single rear wheels ? Is...

    Truck Utility SpaceKap to Camper Conversion

    That looks like a neat set up . I had mine on a wooden pallet on the ground .Had my son come over with a loader and lift it up ,then we rolled it on pipes into the truck . I do not have the front overhang ,so it seems a little back end heavy

    Truck Utility SpaceKap to Camper Conversion

    I have been asking other SpaceKap owners what is the height of there camper. No one has replied ? I finally got my camper on the truck today . It measures 119 inches ,just under 10 feet .When I upgrade my tires it will probably put me at the 10 foot mark !

    Hard-sided wedge style pop-up camper shell currently in development/testing in the mountains of Wyoming

    I agree with others ,if you could make it a flat pack kit at a reasonable price .You would open up a huge market .The shipping would be so much easier ,not sure about cheaper though .Great looking camper by the way .

    Spacekap Diablo on 2015 F350 Build - Climbing Guide Rig

    That looks like a nice set up . I am running pretty much the same truck ,only 2019 in a 250 . My cap is very built out ,just finishing it up . Started off shorter in height and no cab overhang . Have fun with it . Could you tell me how tall your set up is ? ground to tallest point .
