    How to build your own DIY Carbon Fiber/Foam Panels for ya trailer

    (y) Good stuff! You wouldn't happen to know of a decent clear coat I can use... that can be rolled or brushed on, cures quick, and doesn't stink too bad? This will be interior and rarely exposed to sun.

    EV acceptance is peaking

    Big vehicles with long range... this is the absolute worst application of EVs. Their niche is city commuting. A big step up in battery capacity per weight and volume will be necessary before what you want is viable. Buy a gas vehicle with a big tank.

    Such limited 4x4 van choices with decent gas mileage (in the US)

    EU emissions are much higher. "...the average (model year 2010 onward) car on the road in the EU emits around 6 to 10 times the amount of NOx emitted by an average car in the U.S., while the EU standards permit emissions only about 1 to 4 times higher than the U.S. standards. But it's not a...

    DIY Composite Camper T100 Expedition Vehicle Build

    I think they didn't use any physics... :unsure: The T100 and the older pickups used a fully boxed frame which is torsionally stiff. You can hard mount campers to that with no worries. The Tacoma and Tundra have had C-channel in the back until recently. Those frames twist a lot, and so if your...

    Mid-size vs Full-size truck setup

    Surely that isn't true of the 3/4+ engines?

    Lifting jack

    The stock Toyota jack. It's mechanical/screw and has a long range. You need to put down blocks to bring the jack so it's almost touching what you want to lift.

    2006 Toyota Tundra - BaT - 76k Miles

    That's the one I like... stick is best, the power is adequate... and most people are turned off but the smaller engine and so they are cheaper.

    Northern Lite 610 for 1/2 Ton PU

    And less space in the sleeping berth. I'm not sure how all you couples are managing it, but I designed mine for NS sleeping (so both could get in an out without crawling over the other) and enough headroom for "romantic exploits"... and a taller flatbed style made the most sense. The 610...

    Mid-size vs Full-size truck setup

    I don't think driving in the city is going to be fun in any of these. Don't know the particulars, but often two vehicles makes more sense. A smallish hybrid being ideal for city use, or even EV.

    2006 Toyota Tundra - BaT - 76k Miles

    A few of the 5.7s in the 2nd gen have gone >1,000,000 miles. This guy did it in 2007 (2nd gen) with the 4.7, and is closing in on it with a 2014 with the 5.7. https://www.motor1.com/news/702983/2014-toyota-tundra-million-miles/ I don't think there is anything magic about any of them. A big V8...
