RE: Modern Food?

I find Tim Hortons and burger chains food prety decent in Canada Superstores and WM have good deli meals too. When traveling in Japan I love to eat in Convenience stores,they have fresh foods made daily and surprisingly low priced too. Enjoy

RE: Tesla Semi truck unveil & test ride set for Oct 26th !

Tesla is lightyears ahead of any other car company with EVs. Rolling coal fanboys hate Tesla.Not bad, only took 11 years to ramp up to less than 700,000 vehicles. By comparison Toyota only sold 10,000,000 vehicles last year. How many of those were Electric?

RE: Planning a dry camp oriented DIY TC build.

Fwiw Ive built similar TC using 3/4 exterior plywood for the lower part,box and half inch for sides and roof. Made ribs spaced every 4 feet from 3/4 ply about 5 inches thick,also used those in all corners. Made those slightly curved towards the top. Glued everything using PL construction adhesive,sticks like crazy and doesnt run. Used small screws to hold things in place. Glued 2" rigid foam board insulation inside. Coated exterior with Cold cure epoxy,two coats on sides 3 on top,then used Marine enamel over that. Its good for a while but needs REcoating every few years,NOT the best idea. If I was doing it again Using truck box Bedliner coating would be much BETTER imo and would last longer too. Got Espar diesel heater,easy to keep warm in winter for about galon a week. Nowadays there are Chinese copy of Espar available for much less money Seems to work ok Check YT vids for more info Btw I use two Brophy portable jacks that hook up on both sides of camper,makes loading chalenging but doable,just not on windy day :)

RE: Talk me out of my new project.

We love our 2 campers, but our sons spread around the country and taking 3 days trip with dogs in the car brings some troubles, while driving truck/camper cost lot of fuel for short visits. On other hand I drive Mercedes cars for decades and am fascinated with Sprinter vans, who with 4-cylinder diesel deliver 25 mpg. Was researching the "sport vans" conversion, but even several years old can cost 80 grands, so that is out of question. On other hand I can buy high-mileage van for less than $20k. So my thinking is that my Lance camper, turning 19 years shows outside age, it still has good interior. It's market value is pretty low. So buying Sprinter van, I can use Lance interior and slide to make new RV. I see 2 option. 1.The extended Sprinter would make sport van, where I would have to put cassette toilet and shower is out of question. Good part I can make it stealth RV with side window only on driver side. I would have to measure if transferring 6' slide is even possible. I believe anything is posible IF one has time and money Btw Pl
