    Another Road Trip; TX-NM-AZ-UT-CO, July 2019

    Heads up that right now the road from Apache Junction to Roosevelt Dam is closed due to the Woodbury fire. Hopefully that'll change by the time you get out this way.

    Rainy days and condensation

    I used to live in the PNW (eastern Washington) and even in winter used it for skiing and climbing trips without condensation issues. That was generally 2-3 people no dogs. Now if you get on thee wet side of things it becomes a whole nother bal;l game.

    Rainy days and condensation

    We have two people and four dogs in the camper and rarely have issues. One of the fans is a Maxx Air that can run even when closed so that keeps the air moving even if the other fan is just cracked a bit. Also pop up in the driveway when I get home and run the fans and let things air out if I...

    Arizona Backcountry Discovery Route ( AZBDR )

    Subscribed! Being relatively new to AZ this is on my list of things to do, or at least sections of it. Congrats on the addition! Adventuring with kids is great, they don't remember the days in front of a TV.

    1st gen Cummins/W250 and FWC Grandby revival

    I have the Isotherm Cruise 65 fridge (wish I'd gone bigger as two people quickly fill it), LED lights, furnace, fantastic fan, Max Air fan over the bed, 12 volt for phones and whatnot and the water pump. It is very rare that I turn on the inverter and plug into the 110 outlet that I have wired...

    1st gen Cummins/W250 and FWC Grandby revival

    Looks good! If you add more solar you'll probably want another battery as well. On my Grandby I have 2x100W on the roof and 2X115Ah batteries and it works well. Subscribing to follow.

    FWC Opinions wanted

    I rarely (almost never) plug in. For me 200W solar and 2 batteries is perfect. DC fridge is great, wish I had gone with a larger fridge, 60 litres is nice but it's pretty easy to fill. Second fan would be nice to have, I'll be adding my own sometime soon, probably a Max Air that can be run in...

    Rohner are great socks but somewhat difficult to find. Point 6 is has become my go to brand and I've been happy with the durability. Darn Tough and Smartwool are both great products as well and I have some of those in the collection as well.

    Which propane camping fire

    Mike at quikfire was pretty responsive, also was an address I had used. Also spoke with him a few times on the phone when I first got mine, great product except when the wind is blowing.

    Off Brand Android Tablets with GPS

    That sounds like something to watch for, thanks.

    Off Brand Android Tablets with GPS

    Maybe but I also will be more tempted to overload a quality tablet (have a Galaxy), also need to reevaluate keeping anything in the truck now since someone decided to smash in a windo last night and rummage through the cab while it was parked in the driveway :mad:

    Off Brand Android Tablets with GPS

    Has anyone used one of the cheaper, off brand tablets that can be found on Amazon for around $100 as a dedicated GPS device? This would live in the truck, run BCN and that's about it. The only time I'd connect it to WiFi would be to load new maps, SD/mSD slot would be good for map storage...

    What are you using for a coffee maker and coffee brand when camping/overlanding?

    Melitta when there is one ore two of us. If it's a larger group then I'll bring along a stove top percolator just for expediency. As for coffee I go back and forth between F* Bomb from Roast House out of Spokane and a Riverkeeper blend from Evans Brothers in Sandpoint, ID. Now that I've...

    Looking for camp table recommendations (must pack inside of my storage drawer)

    I like the Camptime Roll-a-Table The one I have doesn't have adjustable legs. Also have some plates for connecting two tables together to make a longer, integrated surface.

    Questions about Four Wheel Finch pop up – Jacks

    Off because of the weight and the risk of them snagging something when offroad. They keep the storage dolly company and neither one gets much use

    Questions about Four Wheel Finch pop up – Wind

    60 mph gusts and no issues with the top up. Ear plugs are always good to have in the camper!

    Need input on FWC options (new 2016)

    I'd go big on the fridge. I have the Isotherm Cruise 65 and reall wish that I had either the 85 or the 110. At some point in the near future I'll probably pull the 65 and put a larger one in.

    Need input on FWC options (new 2016)

    Since you're asking for opinions and remember that everyone's got one... Install solar yourself. Mine is a 2002 and didn't have solar wired but installing it was easy. Two batteries is nice, I run my fridge March-November, no issues. Having a furnace is nice, waking up on cold mornings and...

    Four Wheel Camper Considerations

    I have a Grandby on a 2008 Tundra with a 6.5 foot bed. It is a absolutely fantastic setup, for two people. When three or four go and we can't store climbing gear or other toys in the backseat it starts to get old clearing out the camper every night and moving it into the cab and then reversing...
