  • Prayers for you and your family Eric. Much love in your treasured memories and heart, always. (((hugs)))
  • The 2 storage tubs pictured in this thread seem to be the only readily available choices.  Already have the Plano storage tubs - just a bit large to fit onto my newly installed outback platform, action packer a bit small to fit everything. Does anyo…
  • Looks great and solves several storage issues!  I'm still trying to figure out what I want to do with my spare tire - it's been traveling in the back of my expedition, but I'd like to get it outa there.    
  • New 15" wheels and Goodyear Endurance tires after upgrade to outback lifted axle.  Exactly what the Discount Tire rep recommended and you've validated here.  I asked for 50psi and drove home happy.  Had to catch them and insist on floor jacks under …
  • Meh, drop in replacement is questionable.  I've decided to go with 2 - 6v golf cart batteries.  If anyone out there installs a lithium battery in their t@b, please give details on what when how!   Response from Wfco converter installed in our t@bs:…
  • Awesomeness!!  You're gonna love your new home away from home.   I'm posting info about lithium battery on the other thread - not ready yet, dang it, going with 2- 6v golf cart batteries.  You may want to wait awhile since yours is brand new.  Betch…
  • Extra fuses for everything.  There's a complete list around here somewhere...
  • I've got the outback axle on order and will have it installed by my dealer.  After 2 years of camping, I know I want higher clearance.  Removed the spare from underneath right away, but still drag on my cement barn ramp on the way out - barely but i…
  • Thank you so much for your feedback.  Yep, not exactly trusting info sellers put out there. My first step is asking if anyone has already installed li batteries in a t@b – doesn’t look like it darn.  I've got more researching to do.  FYI, I’m no…
  • Hope it happens for you.  Love my t@b and will love it even more with a few upgrades. I'm gonna ck with nucamp to see what they think about the converter working with li.  Will let you know! 
  • Getting ready to switch to single drain.  Also installing the outback aluminum platform.  Some of the configurations look like gray water handle is pointed up, others look like they'd work, but didn't see a pic posted with platform. Are both handles…
  • Hi 4ncar. Did ya do it? Is the outback yours?  I've owned my regular t@b for about 2 years now.  And wish I'd gotten the outback to begin with.  I'm in the process of switching out the axle for the outback lifted suspension as we speak.  Also addi…
  • And here ya go, for a mere pittance ($499) you can bake a cake while boondocking http://techcrunch.com/2016/01/07/the-gosun-stove-cooks-with-just-the-power-of-the-sun/
  • beautiful blue Bella
  • elmeaux said: Honestly, I'm looking forward to less "outdoorsy" activities and more "keep Austin weird" on that trip.   McKinney Falls is perfect for exploring Austin.  You'll find plenty of what you're looking for.  Can't wait to hear y…
  • I've seen one other T@B out there each time I've camped so far.  Entire enclaves of Casitas, but they're manufactured here.  Secret's out, more and more T@B's heading to Texas.  C'mon down the winter camping is fine!  
  • elmeaux, McKinney upper falls and trails still closed from October flooding mess.  We had to wade across Onion Creek lower falls area (knee deep) to get to Homestead Trail hiking.  Pretty, but I've never camped where you can hear highway traffic so …
  • Just got home from 3 nights @McKinney Falls SP, smack dab in the middle of Austin.  This is winter camping in central Texas - 30's at night and 40's to 70's during the day.  Never can tell if you should pack parkas or tank tops!  No snow or sand her…
  • Not a fabulous photo, but a beautiful sight to me - Brought home my brand new t@b the day before Thanksgiving.  Bella sitting in my driveway in dreary drizzle.   Much to be thankful for.  Beautiful ending to 2015 with 3 short trips in December, 8 ni…
  • Picked up Bella day before Thanksgiving.  3 trips in December, winter camping in Texas is perfect, 35degrees at night.  First weekend in December outing to Lost Maples, temp in the 70's during the day! 
  • Yes, he takes up a lot of space, but just look how comfy he is!   Only 2 short trips so far, still learning how to organize.   Having a short hair dog helps.  Washable cotton comforter.  I've left him waiting in the car in cool weather, but don't th…
  • Already sent msg to PV.  I really like that they've given their hardworking employees time off for Christmas!  My guy was quick to respond with a quote  ($400).  Now I'm hesitant. Aren't there screws thru the frame?   Maybe it would be better to hav…
  • I've found a metal fab guy who can make the hose tongue storage that Pop-T@B so ingeniusly created.  Do any of you know:  Will this modification affect my factory warranty - or any after market mod?  She's just sooo new, but there are many cool impr…
  • Ratkity, thank you sooo much.  I swear I really did do a search first but obviously didn't know what I asking.  Geesh, with a tent you're always boondocking, that I know how to deal with.  Off to read the entire thread now.  Photomom, bacon and more…
  • Photomom, I may be waiting till then - if you're truly willing to make me a set when you make yours!  xocheryl
  • ohhh!  I don't sew (at all).  Is there anyone who I can pay to make these lovely window awnings for me?  I do have friends who sew, but someone who knows and loves T@bs would do it right.  Anyone??
  • Thanks leroybort for your vote of confidence! Ratkity, excellent thought, I'll have to look for that easy bacon option.  I use center cut bacon - less grease.  But inside my T@b, I simply crumbled the bacon (cooked outside the previous morning) into…
  • Thanks KyPawpaw, I'll have to look up the WagBag thing.  It's my goal to never ever poo in the T@b, #1only!  But the dump station is definitely the not.much.fun part of convenience.   Photomom, so excited for you to get your brand new T@B!  You'll p…
  • Well, I got the extended warranty anyway.  It's for 7 years from a third party provider, seems to be comprehensive, $50 deductible.  Time will tell if it's worth it or not, but I'm not a fixer myself-er.  I've gotten extended coverage for a vehicle …
