This really falls into the 'why didnt I think of this sooner categories'. Mesh tarp from Harbor Freight (30 bucks), light clips from Amazon (10 bucks), some tent stakes and done. Here's the quick video...

We went to the Tampa RV show earlier this week and focused on the 'more aluminum' products....my first stop was Intech to see the Terra Oasis. Here is the footage of the walkthrough - https://youtu.be/VJ0MuJl3Je0

I also asked about Scott Tuttle. He's still there....they're designing a fifth wheel....and i was told he opened a restaurant!

I had an opportunity to walkthrough both the 2015 game changer and the 2816 game changer pro this week at the 2022 tampa rv show. These are fricken amazing.

A Small privately owned campground on Lake Pierce. Excellent if you like fishing or kayaking on a lake. Very quiet. Cabins for your non-rv'ing friends. Super nice owners. 30 minutes from Disney stuff.

Our video tour and review, including an interview with the owners - https://youtu.be/RX6jkP2zRpM

This is our second (of three available in FLA) camping trip to a COE designed campsite, St Lucie South Campground, in Stuart FL. The only thing missing is lots of shade.

Here's our little wacky video, along with a bike ride tour through the campgrounds. Also our first trip since bringing home the 21rbs.

Happy Camping!

Well....we ALMOST bought an Airstream, but instead, traveled north (our second 1000+ mile trip since Oct) for another LL. Here's the trip!

Livin Lite General Discussion / Lift kit dilemma
June 11, 2021, 12:20:19 PM
I recently picked up a 2016 21rbs, and the seller was nice enough to have the original tires replaced before went to pick it up, so I ordered Carlisle Radial Trail HD 205/75R-14's, same size as the originals, had them shipped to his house, and he had them installed locally.  Problem is, there is now much less room between the tire and the wheel well. Some big bumps will certainly make those tires rub. (it's fine on smooth road). It was suggested I can install a simple lift kit.

Not so simple....

I reached out to Dexter this morning with my axle model # 3792525, and they came back with the following:
"Your axle is a #10 Torflex with side mount hangers, but they have 3" high brackets. We cannot put lift kits on axles with 3" brackets. Even if you put regular brackets on it, the lift kit will only lift 2.63". Less than you have now."

So...any thought on what my options are?

Inspired by the colors of easter, my lovely chef-y wife put together this crazy dish using (of all things) Fruity Pebbles! Hope you all have a happy, healthy and safe holiday!

Edye and I went to check out a relatively new campground here in FLA. Cabana Club. This is not rustic camping, this is amenity camping. Imagine a giant pool with a slide. A bar. Kareoke night. A gym. Fancy fancy fancy. Us, with our teeny 16tbs, surrounded by giant Class As, 5th wheels, etc. I think we were the smallest TT that weekend, and it was comical seeing our rig in a 'premium pull through' site.

We were there to support a 'paws for love' tour...some friends raising awareness about therapy dogs. So....I did my best to capture most of grounds.

Here's the vid - https://youtu.be/ubq-1RkSDiM

Camping cooking / Happy Passover !
March 26, 2021, 04:02:34 PM
Tomorrow is passover, which is a jewish holiday. To honor that, I asked my wife to make something my mother (rest her soul) used to make for me when I was a kid. You don't have to be Jewish to try it, or eat it....it was super tasty, and brought back some great childhood memories!

And of course, my mom didn't have an Omnia Oven, so we put the camping spin on the dish.

We always cook outside. We recently stumbled upon this Omnia oven and have gone crazy cooking new dishes while camping. Check out the playlist of what we've done so far.

I know I can't stop camping. I am loving having the TT, filming our little trips, etc. We froze our asses off this past weekend. Yay for furnace!

Livin Lite General Discussion / Window leaks
November 12, 2020, 12:57:07 PM
A good tropical storm (ETA) came through here last night (and still raining as I post)....it appears one of my windows is leaking, saturating a brand new mattress.  My first inclination is from the window seals, but I really won't be able to do a full investigation until this weekend.

What should I be looking for? (window or otherwise)

Sorry I could not figure out how to put all these pics inside the post.

Best,

Has anyone ever sourced these little table inserts that (I guess) used to come with the sofa? (see attachment)
#18
Even before we bought David's 16tbs, I was thinking of ways to make this into a king bed. I've changed my thought a bit since we do not want to remove cabinets....considering installing a height adjustable pedestal between the two beds (with a nice table), which would

1) allow us to have a table between the two beds, and
2) I can lower, and put a custom size mattress between them

thus making what we're calling the 'dog bridge' (our two small dogs sleep in bed with my wife). I'm aware scootching down to get out of bed will be more difficult. I would have to install the pedestal base in the floor, drilling holes for bolts. I think there's room there, not piercing anything like a water tank

Thoughts?

Here is the footage from the trip we made from FLA up to CT to meet David and purchase his TT, and back down to our home. Hope you like it !
