    Transit AWD vs Express AWD vs Transit Quigley: which one for me?

    A Quigly would be money wasted for where you say you go. You don't like your Express. I'm going to go with... The Transit AWD with a bit higher roof would cover all your bases. Choose the best engine for you and don't look back.

    Ursa Minor or RTT

    Really enjoy that the Ursa sits low for less wind resistance and is so fast and easy to put up and take down. Just a couple minutes in each direction. Best to you in finding your perfect solution.

    Does a 12 x 15 tent Need a Camping AC?

    If your Bride wants AC. Get her AC. A comfortable wife makes for a better trip. Just the opinion of some old married guy.

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

    French press and a can of Chock Full O Nuts. Not real swank or impressive but a good fast cup in the morning is what I'm after.

    Let's talk frying pans

    Need a frying pan. Been using cast iron for years but open to new ideas. Prefer a pan that is no stick but not teflon. I'm ham fisted and use metal utensils. Edited to add... Easy clean up would be a godsend too. Let fly with what works for you.

    Things just got good around here

    WARNING Long boring story ahead. Personally I wouldn't waste the time. Yesterday I picked up my van from Area 63 Productions who turned my Express Van into a camper. Due to another issue that caused serious bone weakness. I broke my spine in six places picking up my dog. Sadly the other...

    1988 sportsmobile / quigley for trade

    Well OP, If you haven't traded for the Speedster or the Suburban... You just may be misguided enough for this. 2002 Harley Davidson FatBoy with less than 10K miles. (Seriously dude. Grab the Porsche. Even if it is a repo. You ain't gonna have that level of fun in anything else.)

    1988 sportsmobile / quigley for trade

    What's the big deal? OP does not want cash nor is he running an under table auction which is why price is required. Sometimes trading is more fun than selling. I am interested to see what the OP finally takes. Since he is open to anything. Offer up whatever you want. Cars, trucks, boats, land...

    You must learn to do mechanics on your van. Have any "Car Guy" friends? Keep the van as light as possible. Heavy vans sink in sand, dirt, mud and break. Sounds like an amazing adventure. I hope you will post pictures of your van. We may see something that could save you money, time and wasted...

    New Jeep Pick Up to be unveiled...The Gladiator

    Well in one idiots opinion... Looks long and not that attractive visually and that will be OK as long as it does the towing and hauling of the big 3's 1/2 ton pick ups. If not I really don't see the point.
