    Modified 2011 Lexus LX570 (200 series) - Los Angeles

    Nice rig, but you’re asking about $25,000 too much. I can qualify that if requested. On edit: I joined EP in 2007 but I almost never post so I guess I’m still a new member.

    I spent $200 on a Kermit Chair. But, the Kermit chair fits in my saddlebag. It doesn't look like that Bigfoot thing would work for moto-camping. I bet it's nice, though.

    What is your opinion on the Yamaha 1200 Dual-Sport?

    Starting with a used KLR or DR650 is a good call. Head over to for EVERYTHING dual-sport.

    Tent Recommendations

    I didn't see anyone mention Springbar or Kodiak Canvas. Unless I'm backpacking or motorcycle camping (neither of which I do much of anymore) I don't think I'd ever go back to synthetic tents. I'm EXTREMELY happy with my Kodiak 10x10 Deluxe. But, for a smaller more packable tent like OP is...

    Kodiak Truck Bed Tent: Opinions?

    I agree that Kodiak Canvas makes a quality product. I looked that tent but ended up with their 10x10 ground tent. We base camp and go off on day-trips so a truck tent would mean breaking camp everyday. Not ideal for us. However, if we were to overland I would definitely consider the KC Truck...

    Camping gear?

    Some of the cheaper gear is absolutely worth buying. Go to Walmart. The vast majority of their camping gear is great for the average car-camper. Stay away from their tents, though. For a quality tent on a budget you might want to look at Alps Mountaineering. Here is a suggestion: Put together...

    Roof top tent $800 good deal?

    Considering it has been over a year since that add was placed, I'm not surprised you were "a little late!" :cool:

    Camper "tent" for pickup or trailer.

    No too sure how well I like the tent thing, but those stairs up to the tailgate are awesome!!! If anyone knows where to get something like that, please share.

    Traditional Tent vs Canvas Tent INFO PLEASE

    I'm not sure about 60MPH mountain top winds but if you're planning on camping in those conditions you aren't looking at $400 tents. I can say that My Kodiak Canvas 10x10 stood up quite nicely in 30+ desert winds unlike the REI Base Camp 4 pictured below (user review on REI website):
