    Service/Utility box trailer project

    Thule parts and service

    Does anyone here know how to get parts or service from Thule? I have a cargo box that needs a new latch. Just a simple part. I located their website, and sent them an email inquiring about the part. They didn't even have the courtesy to reply. But I still need a latch. JP

It was buried in a...

    I was surfing the CL ads last night and spotted this. The title on the ad is "Lite weight camper," with no indication of what it is. So it's kind of flying under the radar of people looking for a FWC. JP

    SRW conversion

    I hesitate to ask such a seemingly ignorant question here, but what is the purpose of converting a DRW truck to SRW? I love my dual rears for their stability and weight carrying ability, but there must be some advantage to SRW when it comes to expedition vehicles. Please educate me...
