    custom camper examples

    Its essentially a 10’ truck camper. 100% custom, true 4- season, and 2200# dry. As pictured we were likely around 10,500lbs

    Low Buck DIY Composting toilet

    Nope, regular tp goes right in with solids and composts fine. Family of 4, yeah, most likely 2 weeks max. And with higher frequency use things would have less time to actually compost. Ive considered a second bucket when on the road full time, to allow the mix to actually compost. Id feel...

    The new 7.3 - how is it

    The 6.2 is a bit rowdy as well, if you happen to lop off the rear muffler. :D Yep, I had to do it. The over axle exhaust pipe was in the way of the air bags! ;)

    Paint or other coating options

    Yep, last spring. It has seen two summer and one winter of use so far. So not a long track record just yet. Though "all" I did was retrofit the rear AC unit, plug an old (now unused) vent hole, and repaint. There wasn't any "sealing" work done whatsoever. Im hardly the first to use it...

    The new 7.3 - how is it

    Every engine has a "sweet spot" with regards to efficiency. Beyond that it's a matter of how much torque is required to maintain your speed, and how much fuel is required to produce that torque. That's why we have silly XX-speed trucks with multiple overdrive transmissions these days.... It...

    external key storage

    I like the idea, but you'd never get that open in snow country in the winter without a MAP or Propane torch ;)

    Paint or other coating options

    Yep, as well as Raptor. I chose to use both for a few reasons. The bed is done entirely in Raptor. As I recall, it has limited colors available, and was cheaper by volume. I needed black, so the decision was easy. I could have used all Monstaliner, but I really wanted first hand experience...

    Low Buck DIY Composting toilet

    Peat is only needed when you dump the bucket and restart. You might be able to stretch the process by adding a bit occasionally, but we have yet to see the need or benefit. Ours takes about two gallons of peat to start. I break the large bale of peat down into gallon zip-locks. I carry 2-3 of...

    The new 7.3 - how is it

    Dealer might not be willing to. Either set yourself up to do it or find a Ford buddy that knows their way around Forscan. Its not difficult, but you do need to know what you are doing.

    Low Buck DIY Composting toilet

    I've held judgement for this toilet for long enough. I serviced it today in preparation for a trip we leave on tomorrow, so I figured Id better take some photos and do a quick write up... Ill run down the basics, but please let me know if you have questions. The basics... 5-gallon bucket for...

    The highest load rated 18" I could find at LesSchwab Not terribly thrilled about the looks, but they are hardly the ugliest of the offerings :ROFLMAO: They are 18x9 Raceline Defenders, as I recall. Wrapped in 35" Toyo AT2's

    Idacamper2.0 Color change, please let me know your thoughts.

    Nothing to report. As in... no news is good news. Stuff seems bomb proof. If I ever decide to wash it, Im sure it would look as good as new :ROFLMAO:

    Id consult the MFG' max load rating of the both the front and rear axle and use those figures as your guidelines. Then work down the line to carry the load that is within those margins as safely as you can, focusing primarily on suspension and tires. Though Id assume the Tundra desnt have a...

    Is an F250 6.2 V8 Gas Reliable Enough?

    140k on ours now. I routinely wring its neck on our steep Idaho grades. 5500 RPM & pinned to the floor doesn't seem to bother it. Coming from a diesel, I'm (still) adjusting to the high RPM it's designed for. But it is a work horse, and never complains, only asks for more fuel.
