RE: External fuel jugs

You're looking for Rotopax. Rotopax mounting hardware I 'think' so..I had been on their site and don't see the strapping design, but have sent them off an E mail and we'll see. Many thanks Gary Haupt

External fuel jugs

I am looking to mount a couple and so far, I haven't found what I need. Until this morning. http://i62.tinypic.com/nwesep.jpg]http://i62.tinypic.com/nwesep.jpg I have a C RV and there is really no way to mount cans that I have been able to think of. These are mounted on a guys Jeep and yes, I have sent a pm, but...who knows. I posted this on the TC Forum because many here have extra fuel with them. Does anyone know where I can find the holding rack? It fits over the rear spare tire. Many thanks Gary Haupt

The TAT....ever heard of it?

The TAT..Trans America Trail. Touted as being for motorbikes, I have been reading a couples adventures in their four year drive in the Jeep wagon. It's over on Expedition Portal.com. You'll need to register to see the pix. http://www.expeditionportal.com/forum/threads/115767-Trans-America-Trail-A-month-s-journey-in-a-96-Jeep-XJ It's not for me...my rig is way to big, but if you have a Jeep sized type thing, it might be something worth considering. http://www.transamtrail.com/ Gary Haupt

Phil...from my last drive down the road...to illustrate the room available. I'm stopped at that pull off to go to the look-see. (highly technical terms) http://i52.tinypic.com/9k1jev.jpg]http://i52.tinypic.com/9k1jev.jpg Gary Haupt

RE: LT vs ST's - Canadian Tires cries "Illegal!".

I have some sympathy here for a company that has it's guideline and refuses to ignore them, to satisfy a customer. In this case, for tires and wheels that do not not appear to meet the requirements of a particular vehicle or trailer. History has shown, over and over again, that despite any signed bit of paper releasing anyone from responsibility, in the event of a catastrophic event, lawyers will successfully petition the courts and that court will assign some % of culpability to the those that had allowed the consumer to over-ride the companies stated position.

ReneeG..it would appear that there are as many sways to spell 'that word' as can be imagined. With that in mind, I think your spelling is just fine. My apologies. Gary Haupt

RE: Need Yellowstone Information

I'd be more likely to ask you..when are you going? It is freakin busy!! Bumper to bumper on many of the roads last year in September. You have to be a very focused driver because many just toss out the anchor without checking to see if there is anyone behind. That or drive like...sooo slow..but pull off and let traffic go by? Well why would they do that, one asks. It is nice..but it is popular. Gary Haupt

Mogi Dugway video Be nice if it was spelt correctly. It is Mokie Gary Haupt

RE: Monument Valley Utah

They take 18 wheelers up and down the Mokie. I guess they just know that many RV drivers are less *comfrotable* doing the hill. All the cryin and yellin coming from the other seat. Gary Haupt that, and the wide eyes and heaving gasping sound lol (not that I did that today, or anything :o :o :o Cool ride, tho eh.... Gary Haupt

RE: Monument Valley Utah

Well ... my E450 Class C is 24 feet, so maybe we could use the Mokie Dugway if we had to and if the DW (passenger) could take it. I'm more concerned about small vehicles not being able to get around us (101 inches wide) on roads like this. Is it wide enough, or are there pullouts on it for vehicles to pass each other? :h Phil..I have driven the Dugway maybe 1/2 dozen times. There are issues..yes, it looks like there would be more, but nope. If I were driving it today and were to meet another RV or semi, I would pull over as far to the right as I could, stop, 4 ways on. Why? So that now I just let the other person figure out what they are going to do. The only time a semi has a problem is on the corners, so..if there is one on-coming stop..or back up if needs be. There are no pull-outs, as such. There is a fabulous pull off about 1/4 way down..on the inside..park and walk around the rock face. Just be careful of snakes. The deal with VOG is getting thru a wash that has that steep angle of departure and dragging the rear of yours over it and perhaps getting hung up. There are only a couple, but..you only need one, eh... Gary Haupt

RE: crossing canada

"I think they are just unaware that there could be a problem. And a couple of them have probably crossed 100 times over the years...so yeah they will be shocked. One of the guys I'm thinking of actually lost his license at one point, still crosses several times each summer to go fishing without a problem." tony...man...that is something. huh..well who knows. They may have had their records expunged? And one does have to wonder, eh? I'd be the lucky guy that drove north to Alaska without hassle, only to get tagged coming back into Canada at the Alaska/BC border. Wouldn't THAT be a deal. Gary Haupt

RE: Kayaks - Does size really matter?

I have a Folbot. A folding kayak, (Greenlander) 17ft. Stores in two bags, so they reside up top in my C. I have a wheeled cradle to move it about once constructed. Plus: has a 700lb payload. Can sit one or two..I configure as needed. I can sit up on the seatback to fish..it rolls back on hinges. It is so stable..beyond belief. When assembled, the floor struts form tines. I can and have packed 2 people and camping gear into it for a week on Lake Powell. I can mount a sail..or use a golf umbrella. No. Cons: it's a barge as far as comparing to the lithe ones. NOT for currants. It would just bend on rocks or a beach landing. It is NOT aircraft friendly. It is cumbersome to get out and back into the C. Great for doing photography from and just putzing around in. Gary Haupt

RE: crossing canada

"Don't have any DUI's and I do cross 4-5 times a year to fish..but it seems odd that a DUI from the US, which is not a felony, would be considered such when crossing. I suppose they just don't usually check or it somehow does not show up, because like I said I know several people who DO have DUI's in the US that cross many times each year without a problem." God I love these pots. Then, when the guillotine finally drops they go screaming. I guess they don't carry a spare either...never had a flat. Never check the gun...never loaded. People are just so...so..I don't know what to call it, really. I wonder how many border 'issues' are as a result of.."well, my friend said...." People need to be smarter and call the respective border services offices and ask the actual question. Or not. It does make for good tv. Gary Haupt

RE: Some un-stuck gear

If you use Lynx Levelers, you get 8¼" x 82" of traction for about $30. Granted, the Lynx are not fastened together, but it seems like they may do a pretty good job in most situations, for less $$ (and I can tie them together if I really need to). Since I have 4 sets of Lynx already, I can throw the cubes in if I go off-road. I would not have thought about those, though, without this thread. Lots of interesting products out there for situations we hope we don't encounter very often. We have to encounter them sometimes, though, to keep life interesting! Good thought..the Lynx. If a person is stuck, sometimes we don't think of the obvious. Gary Haupt

RE: Some un-stuck gear

I got my mats today..thank you Amazon.ca...thought I'd share. http://i58.tinypic.com/2dlkv2a.jpg]http://i58.tinypic.com/2dlkv2a.jpg http://i61.tinypic.com/10rtmp1.jpg]http://i61.tinypic.com/10rtmp1.jpg http://i58.tinypic.com/hwkgmu.jpg]http://i58.tinypic.com/hwkgmu.jpg They see rough and tumble enough. Certainly pack up small for storing. So..I am happy with them. Gary Haupt
