    LabRak awning mounts - new

    Picked these brackets up from the guy I bought my Hannibal awning from, but didn't end up using them. Designed to mount most awnings to your Thule or Yakima load bars. They would need either the companion LabRak mounting brackets, or I thought about using some small u-bolts instead. While these...

    New 50qt. ARB Fridge Freezer for Sale

    philndz, FWIW, I think you did the right thing, and more importantly, you did it without any attitude, just posting facts. I guess it could be debated that it should have been done privately with PMs. I had a jerry can for sale here once, I had a firm commitment to buy it from a member here for...

    Matthewp's Off-Road Camper Design (Recommendations and Critiques Requested!).

    I really like the concept, and love that people have the skills and time to build their own trailers (that leaves me out). I do wonder about your access into the cabin. Looks like the bottom on the door opening will be about three feet off the ground. Depending on your height (more importnaly...

    NAS Defender 110 for sale

    It's only title washing if the entire point of reregistering the vehicle in a different state was to clear the title, which IMO is fraudulent. In many states, a rebuilt vehicle is issued a clean title. The clean title stays with the vehicle through subsequent sales, and many sellers don't...

    what happened to Sierra4x4 trailer tread.

    When I stopped by Sierra4x4 in May of this year and talked to Chris, he mentioned that there was another building (on the same street) that he was looking at (I think his existing lease was about to be up). Don't know if this is what happened or not, or if they've even moved. Herb

    Adding battery monitor to teardrop

    I don't know why there aren't more solar controllers that include battery monitoring capabilities like this. Seems like a natural marriage of two highly inter-related functions. Herb
