    Height increase with Rhino-Rack backbone & pioneer platform? (measurement please)

    The Pioneer platform has the crossbar built into it. You can save some height if you go with the low profile non-quick release feet. My JK has a 2.5" lift on 285/70-17s and still fits through my 7ft.high garage door.

    Rhino Rack Heavy Duty Bars + Quick Release Legs + RTT?

    I'm in a similar situation with the Backbone/Platform Rack/RTT and no great way to pull the tent off quickly for the same reasons, plus it's a pain to move around and store. I have a set of Rhino Aero Bars in the garage and was thinking about getting the QR feet for those but I'm not sure the...

    2022 Ford F-150 Lightning Electric Truck

    That's what I was thinking, more lockable storage in the Frunk, leaves the bed open for larger items. The patent Ford filed for the extended range battery pack shows it as a removable battery+generator but that's all speculation at this point. My buddy has a crew cab F150 with the 6.5ft bed and...

    2022 Ford F-150 Lightning Electric Truck

    Hitch carrier? Just because Ford filed a patent for an extended battery in the bed, like a tool box, doesn't necessarily mean they're going that route nor does does it mean the bed is full. Manufacturers file all kinds of patents that never see the light of day. I get it though, might be an...

    2022 Ford F-150 Lightning Electric Truck

    Isn't it better to have a truck bed and a Frunk? How does having more storage "kinda worthless"?

    Dstock's M101A1 build... or the reality, I needed a new project!

    Thanks! Here is the link: https://www.ebay.com/itm/184768515793?ViewItem=&vxp=mtr&item=184768515793 It comes with various hoses and fittings, and to be honest I thought it was overkill and yet I ended up using all of them and added a 90 degree for the fill.

    Dstock's M101A1 build... or the reality, I needed a new project!

    Well it's been awhile since my last build update. I fixed the awning mount using some threaded tube inserts and bolted the awning to the uprights. I also added a bottom bracket to where the awning attaches just in case there is an issue with the cross piece weld. Bolting it on allows a little...

    CVT Mt. Hood - Anyone have one?

    I did go with the double rail, it wasn't so much a storage issue, but that does help as well. I just like having my bed ready to go when we hit camp. Also, with the double rail I like that you have the double points of attachment for awnings and such. We seem to encounter lots of washboard roads...

    CVT Mt. Hood - Anyone have one?

    I ended up purchasing the CVT Mt. Hood, the new design that allows your sleeping bags, pillows and the ladder to be stored inside. Absolutely love it! It bolted directly up to my RhinoRack Pioneer platform.

    Anyone removed an anti-condensation mat?

    If you camp in coastal environments at all, don't get rid of it. We get an insane amount of condensation in our CVT Mt. Shasta when we camp near the beach.

    Baja Overland Build - - “BOB” The M1102

    Harrisor - One thing to keep in mind when deciding between 12v 4pin and 12v 7pin is whether or not you plan to run electric brakes on the trailer which will require 7pin. 7pin also gives you the ability to charge your trailer battery when the vehicle's engine is running. Installing 7pin now...

    RedKB's M101A2 Adventure Trailer Build

    Nice build! Question for you, when you mounted your water tank, did you mount your water tank frame to the floor of the trailer or the frame of the trailer? I'm adding a water tank as well in the same place, and currently laying out my water tank frame design. Any other pics would be great if...

    DIY Telescoping Lift for RTT on Trailer

    Hoghead raises a couple good points. The steel you want for nesting tubing into one another is called Telescopic Tubing. If you do go with large tube outside with lift tube inside like mine, drill a small hole from underneath the trailer directly under the large tube so that any water intrusion...

    Trailer Hot Water Shower Box

    I'm actually doing the same the with a Pelican Vault 550 case I happened to have on hand. There is definitely some flex when the door is open with the heater attached, but I don't think it's going to be an issue long term. The classic 1550 is more sturdy then the Vault series. I'd be curious...
