    ARB Awning 2000 & Trasharoo tan - Greater Toronto Area ON

    For sale in excellent condition: 1) ARB Awning 2m (6ft) - No rips, tears or other damage. Was installed on the vehicle only during trips, probably 30-40 days total, so the bag is also in really good shape. Original stakes and guy lines included. Mounts were custom-built for my crossbars, and...

    Need recommendation for camp kitchen utensil set

    Nice example of how your kitchen bag can be used, checked it out on the website. Do you have an inventory list of everything that's in this pic? I need a moto specific version of my car kit I posted above. An organized kitchen is important because you use it 3 or more times a day. Sent from my...

    Need recommendation for camp kitchen utensil set

    Because of this thread revival I'd like to post my latest setup. I've splurged on a Camp Cover bag which serves as both chuck box and utensil roll, all in one organized ultralight (for a car camping) 18lbs kit for 4-6 people, even with mostly stainless contents. The contents of the bag are...

    Kitchen Kit/Chuck Box

    Good choice if it's vehicle-attached and not unloaded each time you want to use it. I got tired of handling even a 50lb plastic chuck box, so you may want to estimate fully-loaded weight first. Chuck boxes get used 3 or more times a day so usability comes first... IMHO. If building with...

    Meet the "Hitch Hotel"

    So nearly 2 years later, Mr. Hitch Hotel above is yet to provide any sort of data he so confidently said he would. I forgot all about it, but today this news article popped up and memories of the napkin math I did one dull day at work came flooding back[emoji16]: Gear Patrol: There's No Way...

    Easy Fridge attachment to factory cargo advice (lx470)

    You could do it with a couple of pieces of aluminum flat if you copy my construction method in my first post with that Tortuga slide....no wood or starboard needed. Just lay them flat across the top of the L shaped side pieces, then fasten with U bolts. Sent from my Nokia 7.1 using Tapatalk

    Easy Fridge attachment to factory cargo advice (lx470)

    J-bolts are what I used but I'd recommend using U bolts if you can. After a while I would notice my fridge start to shift a bit, causing some introspection on what would happen in the case of a crash or rollover (that's one reason I went away from a heavy fridge and slide). U bolts will be more...

    Easy Fridge attachment to factory cargo advice (lx470)

    Use the third row seat mounts and some hardware store U-bolts. Here's a slide I built, you could probably do the same using an adapter plate. https://www.expeditionportal.com/forum/threads/edgestar-fridge-modifications-thread.47802/page-15#post-1949532

    Roadshower vs zodi extreme

    Well you really only need to boil 1 or 2 liters and fill the rest of the bag with cold water. There's temp calculators online that tell you how much to mix so you get the perfect temp shower. Sent from my Nokia 7.1 using Tapatalk

    Roadshower vs zodi extreme

    Nemo Helio and hot water from the camp stove. It takes only a few minutes to heat up about 2 liters of water in my MSR windburner stove, then mix with cold water in the Helio. 3 gallons of nice 120F water is the result. Packs down a lot smaller than any of the options mentioned above, can also...

    Animal strikes and brush bars

    That rule applies to the first, second and fourth worlds too, as far as I'm concerned. Especially for recreational travel where you can make the choice to drive only during daylight hours unless of course there's an emergency..... A set of lights with a broad beam pattern and some self-control...

    Can the iPad really be used as an out-of-signal range, off-road GPS device?

    What I'm hoping for is some consolidation in this market that's really fragmented right now- this causes frustration for people like me that want an easy all-in-one solution, and refuse/don't have money to spend on a dedicated high end device like a Lowrance or i276cx or that new Garmin tablet...

    Can the iPad really be used as an out-of-signal range, off-road GPS device?

    I'm actually banking on that happening (Google snapping up Gaia) because after using all of these apps my ultimate fallback is still Google. It's an all in one solution - trip planning in My Maps, offline map storage and overlay of custom route or POI inside GMaps, onroad navigation, and finally...

    Kitchen Kit/Chuck Box

    My kitchen kit has evolved arguably the most out of all of my kit, including even the vehicle itself. My first setup was a pair of Really Useful Boxes, one each for pantry and kitchen along with a $20 butane stove and a cheap tool roll for all my baller Asian store utensils. Then I replaced the...
