    Do you actually use or need a pass thru window from camper to pickup?

    Friends were touring France years ago, they had stopped for the night in an aire. They were sleeping in the back when woken up by someone trying to break into the back door. They both got up quietly and one sneaked through to get into the drivers seat and away down the road. They would have...

    How do you secure your trailer at home?

    I really don't get those Trimax type locks. What is to stop the thief just unbolting the wheel and putting the spare one on ?

    Bent aluminum tent pole

    I had some alloy boat sprayhood poles given to me and I wanted to use them to make a cover for my boat. I used a pipe bender to carefully straighten them out. Worked ok, just do very little at a time.

    Sailmaker here. Also make boat covers, mend horse rugs and do leather work. I have a Durcopp and a Singer industrial machines and a Jones and Singer domestic machines. I think you will find that seam tape will not stick to Ultrasil or any coated material like that.
