    Thanks. This time of year, I'm really only out for the weekend, and I figured if it's anything but snow, I can put them inside while I'm on the road. The nice thing about the racks is that it will be...

    The only thing really prone to wear in the roof raising mechanism is the gear on the crank handle. These are...

    Do you have a ladder? I'm planning to modify some Yakima FatCats to attach to my camper's ladder. Will post up pics whenever I get it done.

    I've probably averaged 15 nights per winter in my old camper, which only had canvas sides. The heater was a beast, and I stayed warm down to -20. You could feel cold radiating from the sides/windows,...
