    1973 Sears Clamshell rebuild

    Sweet build! Glad you saved the vintage trailer. Being it now looks presentable, I'd doubt you would have a problem unloading it when the time comes.

    DIY Wedge Camper - GFC Replica

    Ripcord, how do you like the 2085 hinges at the front? Do they space out the 8020 rails a little bit to accommodate for the bulb seal?

    DIY Wedge Camper - GFC Replica

    This certainly isn't a 100% copy of anything. Wedge style pop up tents have been around since the 1920s, there is no IP in Rips design. I applaud Rip's willingness to share the cut files. Although if you are not building his exact camper, they will only be a reference and will need to be...

    2006 Honda Element

    The Elements with the ecamper sure have a little cult following. I've always been intrigued with that conversion. Bought an EX when they were new to the market MY2003. Great vehicle.

    XLS vs. Limited (01-02). Does is matter? Or should I scrap it and hold out for 03+ ?

    Yeah, Amazon warehouse is only 40 miles away. This came in one day. Lots of times thou, order in the morning arrives in the afternoon. Taking it on a 600 mile trip this weekend should have a better idea how it works.
