    Soft Bridal Strap For Sprinter Van?

    Do not buy a rope with hooks.... those are "tow straps" not "recovery" straps. The rule of thumb for buying recovery straps is 1.5 x your vehicle weight so it has some stretch. And use appropriately rated shackles... whether you go with the "newer" soft shackles or the standard D shackle...

    Overkill Campers

    RKS thinking a marine grade vinyl has any R value is ridiculous. Good to hear Overkill is still trucking along....

    Overkill Campers

    I also think they have a great product and they're at the top of my very short list.... I'm interested in seeing what changes they make, even though I'm more than happy to have the zarges boxes... I think they're a great redundancy option in keeping things secure and dust/moisture free. I...

    No. Use actual recovery gear that is rated for the recovery of your specific vehicle.

    Recommendations for portable solar charging system

    I've heard lithium batteries don't charge well when it's cold... I forget where I read that... you may want to look into it.

    portable ARB Twin Compressor - Help

    Wow! I never used any of their hoses actually.... I "upgraded" to a larger diameter hose that also is a better rubber and can handle cold weather better. I wonder if the larger diameter helps.... No issues here so far.... 6 yrs or so

    portable ARB Twin Compressor - Help

    Those take a pile of amps.... I have dual batteries and yet I also run the vehicle with a high output alternator. If I start it with just the 1 battery and then flip the switch for both batteries to kick on it noticeably runs smoother.... and to have the vehicle running it runs smoother yet...

    Ideas for improving cellular reception IN my truck box.. (living space)

    Sounds like you already know the answer.... Cell booster. Weboost has some good products. The truck version has an internal antenna that removes the requirement to place your phone on a cradle.

    Avoiding virus during 10-day trip

    Way more risk of being eaten by a bear than getting the 'rona while camping. Relax.... go have fun.

    Thoughts on No Boundaries

    ^ That will work if you stay on actual roads... once you hit a trail and the whole thing slams down on one side when you come down off a rock ledge... I don't have much faith in a "regular" trailer not falling apart.

    Portable A/C ???

    Looks like it has an exhaust outlet.... Around here I'd be worried about mosquitoes sneaking in around the exhaust.

    Thoughts on No Boundaries

    We don't see many (if any) actual campers touted as being off-road so I was quite excited to see one of these when they arrived here. I checked it out and was thoroughly disappointed with their build quality and their complete lack of offroad thought process. So many things that will be broken...

    ******SOLD******For Sale: Black Series Patron

    He only needs 4 people to see it and walk away from it to accrue almost his entire asking price (maybe he put it away wet and it got moldy, maybe his dog crapped in it... who knows)
