    We have a Starcool which works really well and cools things off nicely but it does have to be plugged into shore power or it will toast the house batteries. We have a pretty big bank too.

    Still waiting for that link to the actual court case...

    In the meantime, googled "aerocontinental unimog" and found these:
    https://www.benzworld.org/threads/u1...build.2881617/

    https://expeditionportal.com/forum/t...u1300l.189414/

    From that ExPo thread, it would appear that "LeeWhay" and "Ryan" are the ones with some issue with Aerocontinental. Googling those names yields:

    I was unaware that overland consulting is a thing.

    Gives me hope that my life long dream of being a Car Camping Coach may come true after all.

    Thanks. With the dry conditions here I'm thinking we could get away with evaporative, although prior builder did not finish some/most of the wood inside, so the moisture thing concerns me.

    Montana District Courts don't have that kind of online info available publicly.

    Once the decision comes out there will be more info available in another format and I'll update this, but for now this is all I can say.

    Call them up and ask them about it -- I'm sure they will talk your ear off with their side of the story.

    Give your business to someone like Jay at OVRLND.

    I came really close to getting an OVRLND, but couldn’t pass up the GFC preorder price. Jay is a solid guy, super helpful and willing to build just about anything.

    I’d say that anyone in the market for a wedge camper should be looking into all the manufacturers. Or, if you’re not in a hurry, wait 5-10 years for the glut of wedge campers to hit the used market.
    Remind me. We'll send him a red cap and a Speedo.

    Is there a forum for the OVRLND campers.....anyone know how far out they are on builds?

    Would really like to hear more about the supposed LeeWhey and Ryan lawsuit.....it's literally the only potentially negative thing I have heard about GFC.

    Would much rather support a local Maggot business if possible.

    Montana state court? Right here. No hits on "LeeWhay" (including last name, which I found online), or on "Aerocontinental" or "Aero-continental" or "Graeme" (including last name, which I found online). If this is an active case, as you represented it was in your post # 8046, then I would expect to see something there in the active docket search.

    Montana federal court certainly will have all case info available, but I don't have my PACER login handy.

    Lots of competition in the wedge tent space now, so it's probably worth looking around a bit if you're committed to that platform. I like the idea of a GFC because it's a maggot product, first ones to execute the concept, and they're committed to manufacturing in the USA.

    That said, there are some complaints with the GFC, and there are other USA-made options with differing advantages/disadvantages. If you're gonna drop big coin on one of these things it's worth knowing how they compare.

    I've seen some of the places he goes, I'd hire conundrum as a camping coach.

    I figure you provide a bucket of beers, ice, a little grill and some food. In exchange for mostly silent judgement and disappointed head shakes. Actual feedback probably costs extra.

    The ones who do boozy sunrise yoga can be fun too but it's not very sustainable.

    Reccos on alternatives to GFC? I have found a few in my searching. Would take quite a bit to sway me from GFC though. Sounds like the hinge problems they had were fixed ASAP and if I do run into problems its less than 10 minutes from my house to their facility. Make for an easy install too.

    Super Pacific, Vagabond, and Alu-Cab for wedge style campers. I really think anyone would be happier with the OVRLND style with vertical tent walls though. So much more space with that design. The FWC Project M is the only other vertical tent design I know of.

    I probably missed some. There are so many new designs in the past couple of years.

    I tried to navigate that website and couldn't figure it out. Looks like you have to pay to search.

    Seems like you are super interested in this so it would probably be best to call them up and get their side of the story.

    Any potential customers should really do their due diligence. The overlanding world is full of horror stories so I feel strongly that you need to trust the people selling these things. For example, when I sent my 50% deposit to Jay for the OVRLND that would be delivered in 6 months, I had to completely trust that he wasn't going to fold up shop and keep the money. It happens.

    6', sandy aka a little salt in the beard, and I need to use foam blocks on certain moves. Will get tipsy and act all spiritual for sunsets but that's mostly the herb talking.

    This thing might have legs. What is Patreon?
