    Fuuuuck....this thread makes me want to up and sell the sooby and the Westy and buy an F250 and get a camper....decisions decisions....

    And the below, not mine, but sick as hell

    Be careful about buying snowboard goggles for skiing. Snowboard goggles come in right eye and left eye (for goofy-footers) dominant models. This can make it hard to see correctly when skiing because you are facing straight down the hill, not sideways.

    Just out of curiosity, are you hauling it with the jeep? How's that working out for you?

    Nice!

    I'm down for Montana all of January and February. It would be sweet to do a weekend at Lost Trail. They are super chill there. Bonfires, booze, no worries. I'll be driving to Baker, Whistler, Powder King, then Haines in the end of Feb. if anyone wants to caravan.

    Also open to other ski bum RV gatherings...
    I've got the key to the highway... I'm gonna leave here runnin', walkin's far too slow

    This my setup. Still not well winterized, but can be used in winter, at least a California winter. A junkyard heater is a great idea, but I need to figure out where to put it, and the tank.

    Nice! Did you get my e-mail regarding that water tank? It's really nice to be able to store a bunch of water and do dishes. I can also show you a ceap 12v water pump for the sink as well.

    Also, I tried to clean up the stereo electric the best I could that morning. The PO really didn't know what he was doing.

    I'm down for a pirate land yacht (RRRRRVVVVV) summit.

    If you drove this, you'd be home right now!

    You can easily rig an outside propane tank, and install a cheap (read used) RV heater with a thermostat and just vent it outside with some minimal cutting. Do you have power inside? The blower and ignition needs juice.

    Check that there are no cracks in the heat exchanger, or else the exhaust will mix with the warm air being circulated in your RV. If you have any doubts, buy a carbon monoxide detector to warn you when are about to die.

    Here is my rig. Forced air furnace, stove, oven, sink and water tank (for summer only), twin propane tanks, two RV batteries, and three solar panels. My brother repainted it for me a few years ago, and interior is in great shape. Engine, tranny and power steering leak like sieves, but I'll probably re-do the drivetrain next summer.

    Summer shot.



    Can get 20 mpg (Imp.) if I drive in the slow lane. Scary as hell in strong cross winds, though.

    Glad to hear it! And yes, it DEFINITELY needs a disco ball.

    I have been day dreaming about one of these bad boys from outfitter rv in colorado. Fully winterized, insulated canvas maintains 60+ degrees inside at 15 degrees outside, heated tanks, shower, queen plus bunk:


    Also, for those looking for heating solutions, you owe it to yourself to check these out:

    Olympian Wave Catalytic Safety Heaters

    Designed specifically for RVs, Olympian Wave Catalytic Safety Heaters are safe, efficient and dependable.
    Self-generating piezo starter lasts for 20,000 starts. 100% safety shut-off valve prevents non-ignition fuel discharge. Adjustable heat settings. No flame, no flue or chimney, no fan or blower and no noise. Wave Heaters can be used inside an RV as a portable unit (with leg stands) or permanently mounted. Wave Heaters can also be used outdoors as portable units (with optional leg stands, LP cylinder, regulator and hose assembly, all sold separately). Safe for operation at altitudes up to 12,000 feet.

    Some great rigs here! Love the aesthetic that's halfway between Rainbow Family and scary abductor van.

    Yep, and it was appreciated along with the solar suggestion. Solar and getting the keg setup back online are probably the next two projects when the budget recovers from the suspension parts. And maybe someday redoing the ceiling... Blue cubes should be good enough for water this winter.

    Land pirates makes me think we need dual side-mounted M60s.

    Sounds like you're doing it in style! Is Maddog happy to see her back in the hood?

    Just had the solar panel delivered yesterday. Hopefully I can get it all rigged up over the next weekend or two.

    There are several variations of that type heat available, but the problem with them for deep winter use is the moisture they release. With a vented heater there is much less moisture build up and therefore less condensation which can be a real problem with winter Rving.

    2000 Four Wheel Hawk on 1998 F-150 X-cab 4x4. Bought 'em nearly 6 years ago. Furnace, 3-way fridge, stove, arctic liner + Honda EU1000 generator to recharge cabin battery. Kept us toasty down to -15F. Mfr claims good to -40F. Use = ca. 50% trailhead, 30% lift ski area parking lot, 10% NF campground, 10% other.
