    TetonX Hybrid

    mine is on the back panel. They can’t do it legally, but you can mount it where you want as long as you don’t live in Cali.

    TetonX Hybrid

    Just an update on my Teton travels! I’ve been traveling the Arizona Backcountry Discovery Route for the past week with a buddy in his 4Runner. We were on our way through section 5 when a mechanical issue with my Tacoma forced us to spend a couple days in Flagstaff. Tomorrow we will resume the...

    TetonX Hybrid

    Right on, it's a great setup and you won't be disappointed. I'll do some seam sealing but yeah, for rough weather I close everything down and pack it up anyway. I've learned my lessons in high wind and major rain. Easier to take 5 minutes and close up shop than try and clean up/fix the damage...

    I did have this picture of the window. See the red circle for the leak location. Again, in that much rain, any fabric will leak at the seams unless it is welded or seam sealed really well. I'm sure it's something I can seal up! There are two windows in the walls from Arctic Tern if you are...

    TetonX Hybrid

    My Taco was quoted at 6500 for a tow rating. But, none of that really matters when you have heavy armor, big tires and a regear. I wanted to be cautious given how weak the engine is even without towing. My trailer was listed at around 3400 lbs when we picked it up. We add the 30 gallons of...

    TetonX Hybrid

    I'll post some pics at some point, this forum requires me to resize images from my phone and I'm lazy. The windows are sewn from the bottom and velcro up the sides and top. When you stitch through fabric and do not seam-seal, there is a chance of moisture to come through the thread holes. In...

    TetonX Hybrid

    We also had leaking at the fabric windows. I did expect it and when the downpour came, I waited to see what would happen. The windows leak at the bottom seams where the fabric attaches and that's just the nature of the design. Since we live in the desert and rain isn't common, we prefer the...

    TetonX Hybrid

    We received our Teton a few weeks ago and have been very happy so far! We've done a couple of local trips and spent 5 days at the Grand Canyon last weekend. I'm going out for the first "off road" trip this weekend to see how it handles in the dirt. So far, we have really loved the trailer and...

    We are still waiting for our trailer. We had expected this trailer back in January of this year initially. At this point, I'd be surprised if we have it by September....

    I don’t really update things on the internet very often, so I apologize again for missing this message. If you want to see more recent images, check out the Instagram my wife has for the truck. IG: @WanderingTuesday. She does add pics there occasionally. We are about to take off for the rest of...

    At faster highway speeds, the revs are a little high, but I like the way it’s geared, especially off road and now that we will be towing a trailer! I typically drive a little slower anyway, especially with gas at almost $6/gallon where we live.

    The rear axle combined with 35” tires did not like the weight and there was a lot of weight that extended behind the rear axle. I re-geared my 2nd Gen to 4.88’s and that has been great for off road and around town, but guzzles gas at speeds over 65.

    When the air bags were not being used, there was some slight sag in the back, but the suspension handled the weight decently well. Remember, the beds of Tacoma’s are basically plastic so we were seeing stress marks on the bed mounts from the weight of the camper, which ended up being much more...

    We are about to pick up our off road trailer in a few weeks and that’ll be our new platform. We also used a RTT over the bed for the past year and a half after we sold the Khaya. The truck liked that weight/balance much better. As for how to handle the weight, I went with OME BP 51 suspension...

    Oh Hi, sorry, apparently I have never seen @YukonHunter message. My bad. Long story short, we sold the Khaya to a Tundra owner. It was too small for our longer family trips and way, way too heavy for a built-up Tacoma. The CoG and weight balance was not good for technical terrain and I destroyed...

    TetonX Hybrid

    Ours is due any day now, we have been waiting over 18 months (originally told 14 months back then). We have been using a RTT in the meantime and we are very excited to finally have our trailer. Unfortunately, there just isn’t anything else out there that met our needs. I did look at a couple of...

    TetonX Hybrid

    Gotcha, yeah, it's gonna be about 18 months or more by the time we receive it. Which, considering the supply issues, isn't horrible. We are just really excited for it! I'll post up a ton of pictures once we receive it and will be happy to answer any questions. We are fully-loaded with all the...

    TetonX Hybrid

    Hi @hscoots, no, not yet. Some supply issues have slowed things down, as I understand it. The first batch of the new Comp model are almost finished and mine is following right behind it. Hopefully we have it in March, April at the latest! We are supposed to be living out of it this summer...

    Rivian does the Trans America Trail

    there are some good apps that locate the chargers for you. From what I saw, they were in motels quite a bit! When we run that trail, we will mostly camp.
