    Large Solar array on a Bus

    We are getting the vehicles off to Burning Man coming from Canada through my town since we are on I-5 south of the border. Here is one I saw this morning - pretty good approach for fitting as much solar as possible on the roof of a bus - still allows ventilation and storage under it too.

    Why can't someone offer this!

    Was looking for J8 photos for a post and found this: Why can't someone offer this? I love the troopy look with the raised top and big sliding window. The extra length would make the Jeep so much more useful.

    Interesting Promaster "box" truck

    Thought this could be a cool option for a stealth expo rig - build a box inside the back and roll / tilt up the sides as canopies when camped - could also allow covered storage for bikes or a small side-by-side UTV even in the very back area - the cab over is a sleeping birth and it already has...

    Galvanizing a Tow Bar Receiver?

    I have a rusty tow bar receiver and was wondering if having it hot dip galvanized is a good idea? The powder coating and paint seems to not last that long with the road spray and such. Any issue with this idea? There is a local place that does parts with a 100 lb minimum charge...

    Interesting Pop-up Trailer on the back of a truck - from NW Mogfest 2015

    Saw this and thought someone might be interested - was at NW Mogfest 2015 in Sheridan OR and was pulling a Jeep LJ with Unimog 406 axles under it. Looks like the axles on the camper are from a 5 ton military or perhaps a MRAP - 10 bolt wheels with military beadlocks.

    new 2015 ford transit full size van

    Just got a call from my local ford dealer that they have 2 in stock. Pricing looks decent - about $30k to start but the high top adds about $5k and the 3.2L diesel adds another $6K - so it goes up quickly... The shortest version of the Ford has a 130 inch wheelbase vs 144 inches for the...

    New Action Camper Design?

    Just happened to check the Action Camper website (showing it to a friend) and noticed a new "redesigned" version that is going to be the production version? It sure looks better to me - the pop-up is larger and goes straight up - and the spare tire is moved to the floor instead of over...
