    Okay, here's a new product on the market that might be useful for many overlanders, particularly those with limited space but like to stay clean - the Shower Toga. Simply put, it's like a bag with two open ends - on both ends is a drawcord. I won't go into full details here, but check out their...

    2015 Renegade Trailhawk

    Anyone have one of these yet? I ordered one, but won't have it for about 3-4 months. I loved driving the Limited, but preferred the styles and option of the Trailhawk. If you have one, have you done any mods to it?

    A unique grill

    Last week I went to the Washington State Fair and found this rather unique grill - it's called the Grill It! I liked the demo so much I plunked down my $ (and I'm not really an impulse buyer). It's a lightweight, round grill (about 13" across, and 1 1/2" tall) that fits over a burner (home...

    Stacking pots

    I found these stacking pots at the Mother Earth News Fair last weekend. Seem like a great space saver if you like pots with fixed handles.

    Getting ready to start my trailer build, but want to do it in 4130 chromoly steel. Anyone know of a supplier that can provide 2"x2"x.095 tubing? I can't seem to find anything online (lots of 1.5x2, but I need/want 2x2). Will be checking with some more local companies tomorrow.
