    I haven't even seen it yet, so I don't know for sure if the "item" has arrived. I just got a call that there was something delivered.

    I do have a question for you. When running your arb fridge/freezer in the back of the cab are you plugging it in straight to the 12v plug? Have you done anything to have constant power to your 12v accessory plugs. I know that you ran a plug to the bed that has constant power from the battery. Just wondering what you do when you're running your rear platform.

    Trying to decide when running my bed rack will I have the arb in the bed or the back seat. Thanks Adam.

    I haven't changed any of the in-cab 12v plugs so they turn off when the car is off. So when the fridge is in the backseat area it isn't running unless the car is on. The plug in the bed is constant power so I need to remember to unplug the fridge if the truck is turned off for a while.

    as i recall though that fridge is insulated better than a polar bear, so even with it off it stays cold for quite a while.

    Yeah, it seals up good and will keep things cold overnight easily even if it's off. The insulated travel cover that i have on mine helps too.

    Check this out...I drove my truck once last week and once this week. Had 4 people ask me where did I get my rear bumper. After telling them it's a limited design (1 of 2) they get bummed out. It gets a lot of compliments. I should just point to the sticker by the handle and walk away. :D

    Ok so here's my newest addition. More of an upgrade I guess. No more old school Mombasa tent. I got a new Tepui Autana with Annex. Stoked about it. This will fit the whole family which is awesome. Wife and I up in the tent and the 4 kids get to sleep in the annex. Got it set up on the trailer tonight, but the trailer needs some mods before it's fully functional. I'm in the process of building a new rack for the tent that will raise from 50" to 74". The lower height for transit and the taller height for camping so that I can stand upright under the tent and the annex can be at full height. It will fit well on by bedrack too when I don't need the annex. I'll have some changes to show soon since we're taking a 2 week camping trip up to Montana and I need to get the rack completed for that.

    Here's a few pics.

    Tent on the trailer is a good look. Wish I had the need for all the expo stuff you have on yours. Most camping trips last three days or less.

    You do have the need. How do think you're going to make the road trip out to Utah for the TW Moab event next year? No need for a hotel on the drive out from VA. And a full week of camping in Moab. And of course the fridge will get used.
