    Who are you? The prosecutor? Is it really any of your business? If you're so curious why don't you drive to Belgrade and talk to Graeme in person instead of hiding on the internet? You could visit Yellowstone, Grand Tetons, etc. so the trip wouldn't be a total waste of time.:p

    Aren’t you hiding behind the internet right now attempting to call someone else out for being on the internet? Grow up.

    People are asking questions for possible future investments. Attempting to bully them on the internet to silence them accomplishes nothing and makes you look like a tool.

    No actually, my name is Dan. I’m contemplating one of their campers, and I’d like to know more about the accusations before I fork over some serious cash. Take the d*ck out of your mouth before replying back.

    Not meaning to bully. OK, why doesn't he PM Graeme requesting an explanation? Call someone else out for being on the internet? Now that's really a stretch.:eek: Actually, why not give Graeme a phone call asking for an explanation? Nothing like one to one dialog to clarify the situation.
    Who's the tool? I can see that you're part of the NorCal hit squad.:(

    Well I am headed to Bozeman here in a week to pick up the camper, does anybody who’s been out there have suggestions on camping near Bozeman?

    Sorry if I insulted you but really, you need your mouth washed out with soap.:p Like I said, talk to Graeme man to man instead over this pathetic forum.

    I'm in the similar position, but I redacted the last sentence of the quoted post. I sold my Flippac while it was in mint condition because there was no support, no parts (except for SwayAway torsion bar) and I didn't feel like learning how to work on boats to fix any wood/fiberglass breakage. This is going to be a long term investment for me and possibly enable me to live out of my truck and work, so it's a pretty big deal to hear actual facts and issues rather than people bitch.

    I'd start here. There are a lot of inexpensive forest campgrounds: https://www.recreation.gov/search?q=bozeman

    Depending on what time the install gets done the Walmart parking lot in Bozeman is quite nice as well,

    I haven’t camped out there, it when I drove from Bozeman to big sky there were a lot of campgrounds on the way. They all were along a river. Not sure what the snowpack looks like right now though, so they might all be closed.

    Thanks for the link. I’m going to check that out.

    Check out iOverlander or freecampsites. There’s tons of stuff out there in the National forests, or you can hit the parks if you want amenities

    A bunch of the national forest roads are gated until later in the year. I found out the hard way while looking for a few campsites the night before picking mine up.

    I have been finding a lot of the gates to be closed until end of April, was just curious if anybody stayed local after install and had a suggestion. I was thinking Hyalite reservoir but like @JLink said i'm not sure of the snowpack everywhere.

    Speaking of heaters, how does one heat the GFC (truck camper not RTT version) when all the panels are in place? I am fine with surviving in my nice sleeping bag but my sleeping companion may not like the cold as much as I ...

    My thoughts were to either make a slightly shorter panel (22-23”) to allow air circulation or route a heater hose up through a bottom corner of the back screen door. Now that I’m getting divorced it’s no longer an issue, I always use it in “bunk mode” when by myself so plenty of room for air flow.

    We were camped at Dinosaur NM last week for our first night ever in the gfc. We woke up and it was 27 degrees outside. We were in a north face dolomite 2 person sleeping bag and no other source of heat. I wore too many clothes to bed thinking I was in a ground tent, and I was actually too hot!

    I think the insulated roof and non breathable fabric really keep the heat in the tent. My gf is always cold, and this was the first camping trip she didn’t complain about being cold at night.
