Like the OP, I'm shopping for a canopy that is capable of being left up for a few days, rain or shine. I am surprised at how many I see that state that they are not meant to be left up in the rain. Ummm, isn't that the point?
I'm looking for a portable & flexible solution in the campsite. I've...
Nice van. I can see that you have a ton of hours in the work.
I find the unrequested business advice you are getting rather funny. You are being very polite about it, but hope you are not taking any of it too seriously. My guess is you don't have much interest in appealing to "the masses" or...
Something a little different
2006 Ford 350 Super Duty Lariat

I was not impressed with the set of Michelin AT2's I had on my Tacoma.
They wore like iron due to the hard compound. But that compound made the winter performance suffer, big time. They did ok in the deep stuff (when new), but could not get decent bite on hardpack or ice. As they aged & lost...
I've been looking at similar trailers. Big concern I have is the tongue weight/overall weight ratio with a load on the platform.
What is your experience? How much tongue weight do you end up with when you have a couple bikes on the platform? What does your trailer weigh overall?
I learned nothing about the truck from those morons.
I did learn KBB must have no editorial review process before publishing something. Something I will consider when reading/watching anything from them in the future.
And they want to be a credible source? HA!
Doesn't the bedliner stuff stink when applied in the interior?
The only experience I have was a long time ago. Did some brush on liner to the bed of a pickup. Wasn't bad when it was open, but when I put a topper on it (at least a year after application), it would stink really bad after warming...
When I talked to SAW about a rebuild they were less than enthusiastic. Sounds like they would do it, but don't want to.
I feel the same way, I could do it (I know it's not that hard). I just don't want to.
Who rebuilds SAW's? I'm willing to pay someone else to rebuild mine. They show signs of leaking. They have been under there through a few MN winters, and look really nasty on the outside.
I'm not sure I want to deal with it myself.
What is known about when those doors were available on Flippacs?
It seems they would be sooo much easier to use than climbing over the tailgate & ducking under the rear window on the current ones.
Yep. Standard Yakima "Toploader". Use 'em on my Leer & they work well.
If you can wait & watch for used rack parts, you'll save a lot of $$ from the retail prices. IMO.
Call Alcan directly, tell them exactly how you use your truck, loads, ride height, etc. They will build what you need & ship it to your door. May not be the least expensive option, but it's the one with the fewest compromises.
