    Turn key winter rig

    Not mine, but I wish it was. Nice rig located in CO Springs. If I had $29k sitting around and could quit my job and ski all winter, I'd buy this rig.

    Pick up a Honda 2000 generator jetted for altitude + a helper tank, throw on an extended hitch carrier for it and have all you'd need to boondock at areas for extended periods of time in any weather.

    Pretty good price on that rig. I wonder what the mileage is on the truck.

    Based on the text I think that price is just for the truck.

    I think you're right. I went back and looked at the ad more closely. I've been looking on craigslist a lot lately at truck campers. Between Arctic Fox and Bigfoots, I like the encapsulated look of the Bigfoots better.
    We used to have a Six Pac camper on a Chevy 1500-now we have a pop up on a Tundra- I miss the hard side camper-much better for skiing.

    Mileage says this was likely a southern summer toy. Little use. Utah life. Little to no rust I bet. Still is 20 years, but it looks pretty cherry and the electronics have been upgraded.

    FYI Bigfoot are premium units manufactured in British Columbia. The top end models are very good in winter.

    Here is what I have been up to. I completely rebuilt my four wheel camper. Thought some of you might be interested in it. Its been a project for sure! But I think it will be worth it. Looking forward to a great winter!

    Very nice camper but why was it necessary to disassemble the cabinetry in order to paint it? Or were there major modifications to the cabinets?

    So how well do these work in the winter? Do you have insulating panels that you put against the fabric walls? Does the heater crank all night long?

    There is a arctic pack that will add another layer over the canvas on the inside. Newer campers have the velcro and hooks installed from the factory to hang the pack.

    I don't have a arctic pack but have been in mine down to the low 20's with the furnace set at 55 and been fine with just a regular sleeping bag. The furnace runs, but not all night...crank it up in the morning and its nice and toasty to get dressed. I have had a little bit of condensation inside so I like to leave the top popped while the sun is out so it can dry.

    Yes, when I made the new canvas I also put a layer of Velcro for just that reason. I will make an artic pack sometime soon. After sewing the canvas myself I am confiedent I can handle that artic pack, but I might be eating my words later.

    What furnace do you have? Right now I just have a little wave 3. I do not know if I want to bit the bullet and get a better forced air, or try to supplement the wave with a mr buddy. Need to figure that out all that out. I have to figure out how to make it nice a toasty so that my wife is comfortable, if not we will have far fewer nights in it.

    Pretty sure mine is a Atwood 12,000 BTU, comes stock with a new FWC. My kids slept in their kiddie type sleeping bags when it was around 20 and the furnace at 55 and they were fine. They sleep on the rollover couch in front of the air vent to stay toasty but its pretty warm overall

    Not FWC-related, but similar...
    My folks are likely buying one of those enormous Lance 1172s with the double slide-outs. They have a Ram 3500 Dually to put it on. Anybody have any tips for slideouts in real winter weather (e.g. 2-3 foot overnight dumps)? I understand the "don't use them when it's dumping" argument, but as I understand it the layout of that camper essentially requires them to be extended to use the camper without having to climb over furniture and whatnot. They're pretty set on that model with the slides because it'll let them easily take my kids places with plenty of room.

    It doesn't seem like there's any specialty product that helps deal with snow and ice other than the various models of slide-out toppers. So it's cleaning off the topper with a roof rake and ladder? Be pretty shitty to have to wait for sunny weather to melt your refrozen ice layer in order to avoid ruining the seals on the slides.

    Am I missing anything?

If someone could make a jacket of those three things it would no doubt be the most popular and prized item in all of your closets.

    I just have the ride right airbags. I take it pretty easy. I don't even have the TBS recall My leaf springs are getting pretty flat, once those go all the way I will put in a new stiff pack. just waiting on that full frame buyback lawsuit to shake out Hope not, wouldn't be able to find any used ones after that and I like my truck.

    Ha, my wife said the same thing. it was really quite easy to take out, and makes the sanding and painting way easier. no taping etc. I have put it in with the interatoin of taking it out with things just tacked together etc. not sure how a pro would do it, but I get by.

    Very nice. I might have to do the full upgrade to something like that. Thanks for sharing the info.
