    2020 Ford Transit AWD

    I have been thinking of selling my 2017 148" mid roof for a all wheel drive but other than winter snows I am not sure that I really need it. Maybe wait a couple years to see if there are any issues.

    Metal frame or 3/4" plywood box?

    So true!!! I stored my TCer and my motorhome outside not under cover for years and they were in perfect shape when I sold them. From the heat of summer to the winds of fall and the snow and -40C winter to the rains of spring - never covered and used as much as I could. Many said to me that...

    Metal frame or 3/4" plywood box?

    I have built a couple trailers with wood. The first one was a 4x8 trailer with a box on it 4' high, 1/4" plywood. It was NOTHING fancy and I used it for hauling my bicycles to keep them secure and dry. It had a flat roof on it and nothing special. I stained it and used it for 6 years...

    According to the manufacturer moving limits the effectiveness and it works better for people following the one with it on. Saw the new units. I have been thinking if I would sell and buy a 4x4 version and convert that. So far the answer is no.

    Gasoline vs. Propane appliances? Which is a better way to go?

    I have had propane plumbed in on my tcer and my motor homeand it was nice. With the van build I went with a Espar furnace pulling off of the vehicle gas system for heat. A true 12v fridge without propane. A Buddy with the 1lb cylinders for emergency/portable heat and a Coleman stove using the...

    An Electric Unimog...

    I have thought about the same thing, my dream is to have a vehicle that runs without buying fuel. World travels would be a lot more affordable if all you needed was sun :) From the research I have done a big part of the equation is aerodynamics. The more aerodynamic the unit is the less power...

    Keeping your vehicle cool

    For my van I made shades for all the windows out of REFLECTIX Insulation. WOW what a difference. Then I had a roof vent put in and it really helps. If I am away from the vehicle I also use these vents in the windows made out of eavestrough covers with screen glued on the back. If I am at...
