I wonder if spraying on some white lithium grease would be of help where the parts slide against each other?
Can I suggest something non clothing staining instead of white grease? First up would be my std fall-back choice for such things, Maxima Motorcycle Chain Wax. I also just found a teflon bearing wax lubricant at Lowe's that I intend to test.
I used to swerve around my hallucinations, now I drive right through them.
Nice reviews. I have one suggestion. I have used Lowell light stands, that are very similar to your Coleman Lantern stand, for years. They have the flat legs and become unstable after some use. These are the light stands I buy now. http://www.calumetphoto.com/item/MF6030/ They have tubular legs and are very stable. You would have to fabricate your own bracket for the lantern, but that would be easy enough since the top of the stand is threaded. After that you'd just drill the legs for stakes and you're done. I think they are cheaper that the other stands too. They offer a volume discount so if a couple of folks ordered them together, they get even cheaper.
Those light stands look like they would make a base for a vertical ham antenna. Someone try it and let me know!
You will likely find in the end, that you need to mod your truck as much as the friends you go with, so choose them carefully. (AndrewP)

Thanks for sharing. I was about to buy one of those toilet systems. Now I can scratch that and buy the cooking station instead. Don't you just love Cabelas?
The crapper is great, it is just the tent I do not like.
You can replace the slippery guy ropes with better ones, but I think it should have came with them in the first place.
Also the bigger Cabelas shower tent I bought (still have not set it up) is so much bigger, it will be better for extended camping trips.
Yes, I really like the kitchen I bought from Cabelas.
Getting all of my gear organized in my home now and consolidated, so it will take up less room in my rig.
I also took in my old 5 lb propane tank to get certified and outfitted with a new filler outlet.
The original one they do not use anymore.
Bought a Colman adapter hose to use with the tank and my two burner propane hose so I will not have to use the throw away 1 lb canisters anymore.
Also bought two standard/queen Serta firm pillows for the roof top tent to replace the smaller ones that Autohome provides with the tent.
While the tent was comfortable, I missed a bigger pillow like I use at home.
