Thanks, that's what I'm interested in knowing, which company will be providing advanced life support services.

Medical Service Provider

Does anyone know who is going to provide advanced life support services this year? CrowdRx has no mention of BM their page anymore. Thanks.

Custom Camp Flag

For those of you with custom camp flags, where did you get yours? I couldn't find any mention of custom camp flags in ePlaya. A G---le search yielded a few possibilities but a known source would be preferred. PM would be great to avoid any decommodification indiscretions. Thanks.

Re: Box truck shade structure ideas

I built a shade structure last year for a similar sized truck as the OP's. My shade was anything but airplane portable though. I used fence rail to build a 'box' around the truck and planned to cover the top, front and one side with shade cloth (I was worried about the wind load on 30' long tarps; d...

Re: RV Shade Structure

I'm building a shade structure for my box truck 'camper' this year. Unlike an RV, there is nothing but aluminum skin and it gets really hot inside once the sun comes up. I'm building my 10' x 30' x 11' structure with fence top rail and shade cloth to mitigate wind load. The top and the south side wi...

Re: BM Transport - Buying a truck?

So, my friends and I had an idea: A few of us have pretty darn good credit - and we could BUY a USED cargo van or a small box truck with an auto loan. If we buy it in the next three weeks, we should be able to get it "permanently" plated and insured by the time the playa opens. Anyone hav...

A medium duty tarp might be OK until, well, it isn't. I bought a super heavy duty from tarpsupply.com for my monkey hut when I built it last year. I didn't want to take the chance that my tarp would shred in high winds.

We didn’t remove last year’s tape and most of it has deteriorated and lost its adhesion. When we pull the old tape off, the adhesive ...

I built a 14' x 24' MH last year using 24' ribs to 'garage' a Ford E250 van. The van is ~7' tall and easily fit inside. Remember, MH ribs don't form a perfect circle, they kind of flatten at the top. You may be able to get away with 24' ribs with the ends 15' apart. I needed an overall height greate...

Re: Box Truck Camping Tips..

I wanted to go with a fold up bed but there's a door into the cab from the box and the distance from the top of the door to the top of the box is too small to handle the bed when it's folded up. I did go with a raised bed platform for extra space though.
