New lightweight fast set up tent...

Post by TwinStick » Wed Dec 27, 2017 7:00 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.
Traded to 2019 ZR2, Red.

4Runner was a GREAT vehicle but could not even tow our 6x10 enclosed utility trailer comfortably, even when it was empty-ish.

It was time. Truck was still leaking BADLY every time it rained or snowed & melted. It was leaking at every single gasket (rear window, front window, all 4 doors). You could sit inside & watch it run down the inside of windshield, rear window & drip off the upper side door beams. It was molding on the inside & starting to stink. Needed new steering gearbox, shocks, new upgraded T-style steering, tires, brake lines, d/s manifold bolts that are barely recognizable due to rust-removed & replaced. Everyone around here would not even touch em once they looked at them.

So, say what you will. PW turned into a money pit. Was no longer a joy to drive. Hoping that this downsized 4x4 with lockers will fill the bill & have minimal problems, but..... As long as manufacturers keep making engineers design things that fail soon after warranty is up, we are going nowhere fast. Regardless of what you buy. :rockon:
