New lightweight fast set up tent...

Post by TwinStick » Wed Dec 27, 2017 6:00 pm

Just picked up one of these: http://www.cabelas.com/product/camping/ ... s?slotId=9

Looking forward to testing it out this year. Even though it has 1500mm coating on rainfly & 3000mm on the floor/tub, I am still going to coat it with some of this stuff: https://www.sunnysports.com/p-nkwtgs/ni ... adType^PLA

I used it on my last small tent & it was still rocking strong after 25 yrs. This new tent is a little bigger than the 2 person I had. Fast set up & take down too. Our 8 person is great if you are gonna be there a week or more & tons of room. So, now i am covered (no pun intended) for long stays, short stays or while using the camper if the kids show up---they can tent it. I plan on doing some solo trips as well & the small tent would be perfect.
In WNY State. 2008 Red QC PW G56. No lift yet, stock size tires. It pulls an 18' 2016 Starcraft AR One Extreme, 3500 lbs.
Load Pro 35 helper springs. 2015 A.R.E. MX Series custom cap. PCP front diff cover protector. Mag-Hytec 6 qt rear diff cover. K&N replacement air filter only. Dual grounded throttle body. Winch TPC bypass. Fab Four rear bumper. DURA BAK lined rocker protection. And a bunch of new front end stuff.

G-56 Gear ratios: 1st) 6.29:1 2nd) 3.48:1 3rd) 2.10:1 4th) 1.38:1 5th) 1.0:1 6th) 0.79:1 Rev 6.29:1 --- = 78.01613:1 Crawl Ratio
-------------------------5.94:1--------3.28:1-------1.98:1-------1.31:1-------1.0:1-------0.74:1-----5.42:1 ---- = 73.675:1
545RFE----------------3.0:1---------1.67:1--------1.0:1--------0.75:1-------0.67:1------------------3.0:1 -------=37.21:1
