    Truck Camper steps for a northern lite camper

    When I had my truck and camper I had a set of the standard steps. I worked on those for years to keep them tight and stable. Then one day I was at an RV dealer and they had a set of Torklift steps in stock that they ordered by mistake. I bought them and put them on my truck and WOW talk about...

    ARB fridge or ???

    I bought mine from a trucking supply company. A LOT better price than camping places and many of the camping places do not carry this model. The kit is nice but honestly I don't think it is needed, I cut the wood around mine and I am happy. My blog...

    2WD or 4x4 through South America?

    I have the KO2's on my Ford Transit van and before that had them with my truck and camper. LOVE the extra traction that they give you!! As for noise I am a VERY sensitive person to any noise in the vehicle and I can say the noise is not noticeable at any speed. At higher speed you have a...

    So my son and I went on a little drive this last Saturday. When we stopped for gas my son mentioned that there was free weigh scales at the station so thought after fueling up we would get some numbers. So the numbers are with me and my son. Full fuel. Tandem inflatable Kayak. Fridge full of...
