    He's got a helluva a bomb back there.

    Checked in because I am going to be removing the rear seat in a gen4 Outback and putting in a platform to the back of the seats. I will brace it underneath and fit legs shaped to the floor to support it. Thinking about somehow using steel strapping plates and tying in to the bolts where the seat came out. I would feel a lot better having it locked down. So anyone who has tied a wood frame in to where the rear seat is or has thoughts-let me know.

    Van is setup for test outing tomorrow night. Photos to follow.

    If anyone has beta on a place/street I can get away with one-night in Dillon/Silverthorne with a stealthy van setup (arrive late, leave early, blacked-out Astro van) -- post 'em up or PM me. Hoping to have a brew or three at Dillon Dam brewery post-ski and would prefer not driving all the way back to Herman Gulch by Loveland.

    There's nothing better than sliding down snow... flying through the air.

    Had a good test-overnight in Bessie the Astro van last weekend. Stayed at Herman Gulch (two exits before Loveland off I70.) Besides for the bit of traffic noise, no-one bothered me. I was the only person in the lot in the evening.

    Setup felt pretty dialed, but it was relatively warm (~10F). I expect it to be a good bit colder when I do my SW Colorado (Monarch/Wolf/Purgatory/Silverton) and JH/Driggs trips later this season.

    Whiskey and books in the evening.


    Coffee, breakfast, and heating liners and gloves in the AM. Little Buddy Heater just out of view by the gloves/liners.


    Skins on. Started snowing ~4am by the time I finished uphill lap #2 ~7:30 there were 5 or 6 inches of fresh.


    Reflectix on windows for a bit of insulation and privacy. Table's legs are sawed off. When I lay the backseat down it matches the height, which--along with another home-built table behind the back seat--makes a full-size sleeping platform with room underneath for skis/gear.


    Pretty good conditions by the end of the day.

    I have a popup, I use Reflectix insulation for the canvas and some of the windows. Get a good mattress or futon mattress so you are insulated from underneath. I have also insulted the bottom of the camper with blue foam board. It does pretty well. I haven't camped in below 0 yet but 5-10 degrees and it does great. My biggest issue is the heater sucks a lot of juice so I am using a MR Buddy as a backup and have a small generator also. I still need to insulate the propane tank and lines. I love the popup except when you are forced to move in the middle of the night. I would love to see how others insulate theirs? It is fun to see other people's projects

    If you don't mind paying, 30-35$ at the koa on the west side of town comes with power.

    Thanks for the responses. I went with the dumont lake parking as was coming from that side. A few other sledneckers up there too but it was a great time. My wave 3 heater didn't stand a change to the negative 15F, but in the sleeping bags and extra wool blankets was perfectly comfortable. Going to add a bunch more reflectix to everything to try to get it more comfortable outside the bags.

    This was my first run in the four wheel camper. I figured if we can handle that weather, we can handle most anything Ill ever be skiing in.

    Dtimms, would love to see more photos and info all your reflectix and additional insulation. Right now I the entire canvas covered and a few pieces thrown under the mattress. I noticed the floor area was a major source of cold air. How did you insulate all that?

    Wrap the bottom of the rig in something. Plywood, foam board or even canvas wrap will keep air exchange from pulling heat through the floor.

    shredforfun, I don't know about 4wheel campers (other than they are badass!!) but I put blue foam board insulation under the floor in the open spaces of the frame. I will get you pics when I unload the camper. My camper has a wood floor frame that had 2 foot wide openings, just cut blue foam board to size and glued it in there. That helped a bunch. I will say that -15 would be pushing any popup truck camper. I have never camped that cold.

    It was my 1991 Dodge W250 4x4 Cummins. Let it go for real cheap cause I just needed it gone and the guy got a unbelievable deal considering how much $/time/parts I put into it. Now, I went to a newer F-150 w/ topper.
