    Off road hitch

    I have seen complete hitches (vehicle and trailer side) that allow for more articulation. Does anybody make a hitch for just the vehicle side so you don't have to change the hitch on the trailer?

    In vehicle Navigation system

    I just got a new car. We will take road trips in it but not necessarily "overlanding". It has a nav system built into it. Is there any advantage to using this as compared to an app on my smart phone? The car is a 2019 Camry XLE. I had a Nav stem in my 2011 Acadia Denali that offered me less...

I have can take a generator for comfy camping if wanted, why would somebody choose a one over the other?

    Wood vs Steel

    I see allot of people with wood slides outs, cabinetry and drawers. Why do people favor wood over steel? Wood seems so much heavier and thicker than steel would have to be.
