    Any cheapo welder reviews/experience?

    I started with a Northern tool 110V flux core welder and just stepped up to a 220V MIG from Yeswelder based on a recommendation from a welding instructor. They also sell a TIG/Stick/Plasma cutter machine that I'm looking at.

    Truck Camper that Sleeps 4?

    You might look at Scout truck campers. They offer a Rooftop tent option that allows you to access it from the inside. The camper is made from composite materials and so is lighter than a lot of other options. We are considering going that route and would have the kid sleep in the rooftop tent.

    Chevy 2500 HD Sags to One Side with Camper

    You can look into airbags. They're pretty easy to install, I put a set on my 2008 Silverado 3500. Might decrease your rear articulation some but on the other hand you probably aren't rock crawling so it probably won't make a huge difference.

    3/4 Ton GM Steering/Suspension Refresh

    I had used tie rod sleeves previously on my 3500. With road grime and salt the sleeve essentially fused themselves to the tie rods. I now run Kryptonite tie rod. I went ahead and did the whole kit. Cranking up the torsion bars can give a harsher ride and be hard on ball joints. For lifting it a...

    Official Test Results: Five Ways to Heat a Tent

    I met a guy at Expo East a few years ago that was running one of those diesle heaters (not sure what brand) in his homemade trailer. He said that it worked great to heat it up but he would run a CO2 detector. His had a separate diesel tank and so he had to get creative with the tank location so...

    two person sleeping bag

    We just zip 2 regular sleeping bags together which is about queen size. We're both warm sleepers though so we tend to end up on top of the sleeping bags and just have a sheet on. For pillows we have Klymit Luxe pillows which I find quite comfy and you can inflate to your desired firmness. Costco...

    Foldable/Inflatable Boats?

    We have a Sea Eagle inflatable kayak and also a SUP. They work well and have had them for a couple of years. Sea Eagle will have sales from time to time and that is when we picked up ours for a decent price. I have also heard good things about Advanced Elements.

    2019 Colorado ZR2

    I thought cussing was required when working on a vehicle. Those look nice. My Silverado has the shock mounts on the bottom also. Not sure why that is where GM puts those.

    2019 Colorado ZR2

    We still have the trailer. I need to fix some tears in the canvas though. It is nice but sometimes I think that a decent tent is an easier set-up.

    hitch bike rack wobble

    Does your bike rack have a mechanism to fold up or down? We have some wobble from the hitch on our bike carrier but most of it comes from the mechanism that allows it to fold. We have the Swagman Semi 2.0.

    Easy-up alternative.

    We have a Gazelle Gazebo that we really like. Packed up its still fairly long but the set-up is fast and staked out its pretty solid.
