    Portable solar recommendations

    Yeah, as a bicyclist, I cringe when I see those cables. I can cut one of those with a hand tool in 5 seconds. Any of them. I used to have a Dobie and she saved my life from an intruder, but now rely on a fox hunting Jack Russell. Anyone coming near my stuff better not smell like a fox cause...

    Portable solar recommendations

    I have Zamp Obsidian built in on the roof and got an Acopower 120w portable suitcase to plug into the side plug when I need a bit more juice or am parked in the shade, which is often. Love the Zamp stuff but didn’t want to spend that much on a portable and wanted something lighter and thinner...

    Shrinking demand for RV Towables.

    Between hipcamp, forest service dispersed sites, BLM, etc. it's still possible to stay away from commcial campgrounds, and hotels, air bnb's and inns have become crazy expensive, so we still prefer taking our chances with trailer camping, but agree that for many people, the reality of...

    Backroads Overland Trailer

    Dealer has it listed as "starting" at $24.9K, which must be a stripped down box. Not sure how this is going to be any cheaper than anything else on the market once you tack on all those expensive options to make it comparable to the other high quality trailers out there, but that marketingeze...

    Tribe EX500

    So it seems you’re now saying Tribe does not own the factory but owns the rights to this trailer for the US market. That makes more sense than the previous claim given that the manufacturer is a bigger company and clearly has been making trailers and other products for a while and even has...

    Wombat Camper

    I saw your unit at expo East and was very impressed with the design and construction. I prefer no wood myself, and wanted a full-time bed with a little bit more space, but the Wombat was definitely tempting. Must admit the wood does give a nice feel. Kind of a ruggedized and better...

    Overland Trailer in Central America

    Oh yeah, I had just looked into Baja so far, which is entirely a free zone and does not require a TIP. They are cheap anyway. https://www.mexpro.com/mexico/rv-vehicle-import-permit.html

    Overland Trailer in Central America

    I’ve been thinking of heading down there myself. I don’t think you need to worry about importing the trailer or car since you’re just visiting, but this write up might help. https://rvlife.com/motoring-to-panama/

    Best full-size 4 season composite trailer?

    Have had air suspension in three vehicles over twelve years of driving, never had a leak or compressor fail. Not worried anbout air bags on a trailer. Auto leveling rear suspension while towing is a dream, as is the improved ride comfort, and I’m very much looking forward to using the gimmick...

    Pause overland trailer

    I never said million dollar boats. I said very expensive boats. Lots of $100K up to $500K boats in the C-Bay and they’re not even oligarchs or Russian mafia, just got their money the old fashioned way—from mom and dad. Now about those million dollar motor homes. Lots of those on the road no...

    Pause overland trailer

    There are all kinds of people driving around in million dollar motor homes. If they are enjoying their lives and have the money, why not. Same for boats. A few friends have very expensive boats that depreciate like crazy as well but they can afford it. If a $200K trailer makes you happy, and...

    Best full-size 4 season composite trailer?

    All this talk of stuck slides makes me wonder how reliable that new Tribe, er conquer/falcon/alibaba trailer’s roof lift system will be out in the field. Would be an extreme bummer to arrive at campsite and that thing is stuck down.

    You can see pricing from the Chinese manufacturer at their site and can request a shipping quote. They price them at $30K range plus shipping.

    Tribe EX500

    Man, look at all the stuff these guys make. Check out the huge ex700. If Tribe owns these guys it may be news to them.

    Tribe EX500

    I don’t know. At $65K, assuming it has less than stellar power specs and no-name components, there’s no way I’d go there with an import. For that kind of money, I want to be able to talk to the guy that built it and have a lifetime guarantee on the frame. I accept a lot of products from China...

    So you’re saying that Tribe owns these guys? https://conquerfalcon.ecer.com/

    Tribe EX500

    If they own the plant, why is the same trailer available on alibaba? That’s a bit confusing.

    Tribe EX500

    Looks like indoor and outdoor. There’s a video up on YouTube with a bit more info. I actually saw this thing on alibaba a little while ago when I was looking and moved on since I wasn’t interested in an import. Still not.
