    Anyone know about Port-Lite campers

    The website says "made in Maine" but the phone area code is for Atlanta, Georgia. 1350 lbs sounds way too light for what they say is in the camper. Color me sceptical...

    120V plug's

    I use standard household receptacles from Home Depot. Good quality and low price. Mount them in standard outlet boxes, just like at home. White 15A outlet

    Lance 815 Refrigerator upgrade...

    I had similar experiences with the original fridge in a Lance 845. I replaced it with a NovaKool unit 3 years ago and have been very happy with it. It is similar to a Vitrifigo. The extra space is really nice and it regulates temperature far better than the old unit did. I think you will...

    Parks requiring RVIA?

    I have never had anybody look at my RVIA tag in the 15 years I've had an official RV. Before that I used a truck with topper. Never had an issue with that, either.

    Let's discuss the on board water storage setups.

    For a shower head in my Lance camper I use a kitchen sprayer. Very low flow and you get to spray exactly where you need it, very little waste. The squeeze handle means no flow unless you want it. Home Depot version...

    Barn Door for JK factory hardtops

    Just a suggestion - make another bag to hold the faucet and drain hose that then fits inside the sink when it goes into its bag. That way everything for the sink is in one place.

    Just ordered. My new 2018 Jeep JLU Rubicon!!!!

    That may be due to the tires more than anything else. I remember when I switched from BFG All Terrains to Mud Terrains on my TJ a few years back the wandering increased a LOT. I bet if you put some good road tires on it would steer much better, but then it wouldn't be much good off-road anymore.

    2018 JL prices

    That comes out to $42,253.15 according to the inflation calculator someone posted earlier. Your wages would come out to $12.29 today. You paid a lot for that Golden Eagle in terms of hours worked - 3,438.46 hours!

    Adventure Tool Company's 4wd Provan Tiger Build

    I think you should be running a 4L80e with that much weight. RV builders usually start with a too-small drivetrain to save money, and then when they are finished with their build, it is overweight. And then this sort of thing happens, long after their 1 year warranty is run out. Notice that...

    Freshwater in water heater -available?

    "Just curious if this is "Salesman" talk/euphemism that has been adopted by owners?" Yes it is. That 6 gallons is weight you have to carry, but it really can't be used. The drain dumps it into the dirty bottom of the compartment and then out onto your shoes. Some mfgrs claim X gallons of...

    Car Insurance with Truck Campers

    I insure the truck as a standard truck. Any modifications to it + the camper I self-insure. Pay the money into your savings account instead of the insurance company. You will come out way ahead in the long run.

    Give a Dreamer Advice

    Not a problem at 70MPH because it likely won't ever get there. Many years ago I bought a well-used and abused 1976 CJ5 with the 258 straight 6 and a 3 speed. It was terrifying to drive at 55. It would have needed a very long and steep hill to hit 70. It didn't climb well because that 1st...

    What did you do to your Expo Jeep today?

    I bought my 99 TJ new, and it has solid lug nuts. Maybe they were part of the 30" tire & wheel option that it has. I doubt that the dealer would have put aftermarket or replacement lug nuts on the factory wheels.
