Re: Alternate Roads to BRC, why aren't we making the most of them?

A couple pulled in across from us last year on Tuesday. They left Reno on Sunday and decided to take Jungo in a half ton pulling a double axle camper. They had their first flat tire within a half hour, and they continued breaking down multiple times and had to call friends for help. Jungo literally ...

Re: Seeking towing advice

Seriously, this is the most important thing and will fuck yer plans on any given Sunday. I bought a 2012 StarCraft trailer, drove it home 100 miles same day. It looked good, it towed good, and I was pleased with my purchase. Next stop is my mechanic to do a safety check. First time he's ever called ...

Re: Carport questions and comments -2016

This year I bought a replacement canopy roof for the Costco carport (Item #862391) and it was approximately 1 foot too short to fit the frame I bought about 8 years ago. . Just a heads up to those out there, this does not fit all 10x20 Costco carport frames. My fault for not field testing. You can c...

Re: What do people charge for trailers?

Really good idea. You've got sellers who will be motivated to sell over the next couple of months. They want to get rid of their toys before another year of non-use + storage fees + rainy season starts. For best deals on trailers, buy from a private party between NFL playoffs and tax day. For a Jeep...

Re: Rinsing off with an outdoor RV shower

Also, turn off your water pump / lock the outside shower when not in use.

Last thing you want to see is a ZERO fresh water on Tuesday morning cause some dickwad didn't fully close the faucet.

If you can build this configuration between two panel trucks deep inside a neighborhood that's got good windblock - you may just got it made, babe. Get 5 or 6 long stakes and pound them in.

with that double box setup, once all the potential heat issues are figured out, might want to think about an external fuel source. It would make the refueling process a lot easier.

Re: What happens if a vehicle is turned away from gate, but the tickets aren't voided?

If you have a stowaway in the back of your ambulance, or on the roof, presumably as the operator of the vehicle you know they are there. Therefore fuck the stowaway, your vehicle, and you in this scenario - GTFO. If you have a stowaway in/on your vehicle and somehow you don't know, then you're a fuc...
