    How tall is too tall? And how long is too long for mild off road?

    Tired of sleeping on the ground. Have a little 4x6 cargo that I was going to out the stretch out to 8ft and make it a cargo camper with a kitchen in the back like a teardrop. I also have an interest in a larger cargo that I could put my motorcycle in and then use as a base camp. I ran across...

    Why do so many people build BOMBS out of their trailer projects?

    I'm researching for my next build and went through the sticky of builds and was shocked at how many people are putting propane tanks into enclosed areas without proper ventilation. :Wow1: Just a BAD idea on a Darwinian level. Hell there is a build thread where the tank is IN the galley...

    Making ICE! (home made fridge)

    I sort of walked into a deal on some 24v AC units that were on some cabinets I was interested in. Little boogers are rated 986 BTU so really not powerful enough to cool and sizable space. Well I look up the compressors and it turns out these things will run 12v as well. Its the same brand...

Rodger at 4Crawler claims you can get that size...
