    Amazing ADVENTURE TRAILER - HORIZON for sale

    BobcatH - LOL... actually it was in Prescott, for a long time! Then I drove it across country by dirt road to NJ. It would not be a big deal to have it transported back though. Given how rare nice Horizon's are on the market it would probably be worth putting it on a flatbed or getting someone...

    Sportsmobile vs. XP Camper -- Why the XP Camper Won For Us

    Before I start this response, let me state that I do not own an XP Camper, I have no financial relationship with XP Camper, and I'm not posting this on behalf of anyone other than myself. That being said, I have looked in great detail at almost every camper mentioned in this thread, and imho...

    East Coasters Unite

    We're coming from the New York area. Not sure how early / fast we'll go... would be happy to potentially go in a group, especially if there are any other families going with kids.

    Looking for Michelin XZL's or alternate 20" tires

    5 years Wow... talk about the ghost of threads past... This posting was from almost 5 years ago. We wound up putting a set of the XZL 445 x 22.5's on the EcoRoamer, and have been very happy with them. They fit the standard Alcoa's and are much more readily available than I first feared...

    Alaskan Camper Build Up

    Not sure if it is too late for you, but we have been VERY happy with the Sanyo HIP 195W solar panels on the roof of the EcoRoamer - specs here. They've been extremely rugged despite several tree bashings - and the extra power per square inch (they're 195W) really helps. Hope that helps... Jay.

    Alaskan Camper Build Up

    V. Sorry Carlyle, A little late to be chiming in here, but wanted to share my sentiments of how sorry we are to hear about your camper. I'm sure it's been said before, but: thank goodness nobody was in it. I'm sure you will re-build it even better this time. As Doug Hackney calls it, we all...

    Vehicle 1st Aid Kit, what am I missing?

    My Amazon kit... You already have an excellent list going, but I thought I'd share mine as well if anyone's looking for a fast / easy way to assemble your kit. I went through the (excellent) Wilderness First Responder (WFR) course from Remote Medical in 2010. Based on that experience, I...

    C5500 TopKick 4x4 Crew Cab Build

    Congratulations on the progress you're making. It's a huge project so don't be discouraged by the times when it feels slow. If I have one biggest regret about the EcoRoamer build it is that we rushed at times. Inevitably anything in the truck that breaks our was done wrong, was done during those...

    Eco-Roamer - F650 based Expedition Vehicle

    Smelly oxidation Hi Tom, It's kind of funny. The truck took 2 years to design, and another 2 years to assemble the 1,000+ components together, but people seem to be most interested in the composting toilet and the grey water drain! Yes - it smells bad. We treat it every once in a while and...

    Eco-Roamer - F650 based Expedition Vehicle

    Hi All, Yet another LOOOOOONG silence, sorry! It's been a crazy busy, but exciting year. The EcoRoamer is fixed and running great. We took it out to BurningMan again in September, which was amazing, but other than that it's been sitting in storage. No travel plans for 2011 as we've been...
