    110 Volt Air Compressors with Halkey-Roberts H3 Nozzles?

    I recently purchased a nice huge 14' inflatable touring standup paddle board (10-15 target PSI) and have been thinking about getting an electric air pump. Unfortunately, all the electric sup pumps are 12 volt and extremely loud and really underpowered. I was wondering if anyone had any...

    2021 Best Compact Air Conditioning Options?

    I think I found my answer for this if I have shore power available and feel like I need to do this mod in the future (luckily the incredible heat wave up here in Western Washington has passed today). I think I would just buy a little $150 LG 5000 BTU window unit like this one...

    2021 Best Compact Air Conditioning Options?

    Wow, thanks for the great write up and sharing all your experiences and observations tackling the “beat the heat” problem of mobile living and working. Airflow in a small space is definitely king for both hot or cold weather. Love my Planar diesel heater for that in the Winter. Vents moisture...

    2021 Best Compact Air Conditioning Options?

    Sorry, if my emphasis did not make sense, haha. The day time high ended up hitting 104, so over 30 degrees higher than the average high (which was already hit by 7:30am).

    2021 Best Compact Air Conditioning Options?

    Well, I recently moved on up to the islands of coastal Washington from California to escape all manner of unpleasant things and to keep my full-time moving living dream alive. As you all have seen from the news at the moment, we are are really getting cooked up here with an unprecedented...

    2022 Ford F-150 Lightning Electric Truck

    For my needs and intended usage, this is definitely on the right track but not quite ready for prime time. I am a full-timer with my rig, so between needing a much longer range equivalent for taking the weight and aerodynamics hit for a camper, I would also be planning on making liberal use of...

    The Grand Terrainer: 2017+ Ford F-250 and SpaceKap Diablo 8'

    I recently decided to upgrade my mattresses to custom cut Tochta 4” thick foam mattresses with special ordered firm/high density foam. I really enjoy a mattress that fits in my double sleeping bag sleeve and have the whole assembly sit on my Froli Nemo marine innerspring. Exped Megamats are...

    Budget Used Domestic Cargo Vans for Family Member Build?

    Good point on V8s of that vintage. Indeed, new is definitely even more spendy than I remembered. Nissans are definitely worth another look too. Indeed, Chevy Express was one of my first thoughts. You both have made good points about repair accessibility on vans. I had not thought about...

    Budget Used Domestic Cargo Vans for Family Member Build?

    I am in the process of trying to spec a budget friendly base van for a build for a family member and would appreciate any pointers/leads. We are debating a new Ford Transit Connect, Ford Transit, or a $5-10k used full size van in good condition. This is obviously a terrible time to be looking...

    Heaters: Comparative data

    If you would like to mount the portable one in a pelican case externally like I did, take a look at using these: https://www.eo2fastener.com/ I used these parts: SnapTop™ Rail Lock: With Lock Rail Length: 14" Bottom Mounting Rail Profile: High Profile Rail Length: 22" Mounting...

    Heaters: Comparative data

    Just my 5 cents, I have a planar portable heater mounted on the outside of my SpaceKap build (https://expeditionportal.com/forum/threads/the-grand-terrainer-2017-ford-f-250-and-spacekap-diablo-8.207675/) and have enjoyed it as a full-timer and this has been my first Winter (Northern Coastal...

    Starlink Antenna Vehicle Mount/Mast?

    Definitely, I had seen this beta requirement as well. I am not in the beta yet (photos a beta user posted) and would be using it only at my home base initially until they lift the stationary requirement. I am hoping that they also roll out a mobile optimized antenna by the time they fully open...

    Starlink Antenna Vehicle Mount/Mast?

    If I mount externally on retractable mast on the rear, I would store it below the roof line when driving around offroad or not. Still might just manually deploy it outside on a tripod but would be more worried about it getting jacked. It is phased array antenna, so it just needs to generally...

    Starlink Antenna Vehicle Mount/Mast?

    I thought this would be a good location to inquire about this item, since I am sure that between cellphone signal booster users, HAM radio enthusiasts, and current satellite internet customers there must already be some good options for this. I am signed up for the Starlink satellite internet...

    Need to put your details on a website, teaser pics, etc.. A lot of good options on the market nowadays. No basis to generate hype otherwise.

    Vertical Kayak/SUP Swing Hitch Rack?

    I think I would skip a second receiver since I never tow anything and I would still need a swing arm or I could not open the right rear door. Good point. I know of a shop that could probably do it for me, but I always try to avoid custom work for ease of replacement alone. Still, I agree...

    Vertical Kayak/SUP Swing Hitch Rack?

    I’m based in the San Francisco Bay Area. I’m hoping to keep it to kayaks or SUPs under 10 feet to avoid drag or clearance issues. This would be behind my truck camper: https://expeditionportal.com/forum/threads/the-grand-terrainer-2017-ford-f-250-and-spacekap-diablo-8.207675/

    Vertical Kayak/SUP Swing Hitch Rack?

    I am looking for a vertical kayak/SUP swing hitch rack that is or can be biased to the right side of the rear to not completely block my rear view camera. I plan on leaving it on full time, hence the rear view camera necessity. Does anyone know of one or anyone who does custom work?

    Looking for advice for on which full size trucks best fit my requirements.

    Wow, it sounds like you are trying to build my rig: https://expeditionportal.com/forum/threads/the-grand-terrainer-2017-ford-f-250-and-spacekap-diablo-8.207675/
