RE: Looking ideas pop up roof section

Build a box on your roof the size you want, 4 or 6 inches high, next build a roof box large enough to set our your framed opening. Now you can use waterproof canvas or clear heavy vinyl attached to both frames to weatherproof you opening. The roof could be held up with hinged swing up corner posts, or make simple scissor hinges that go over center to lock. Hope you get the idea, all the details are up to your imagination. Dave PS you'll need to lock it down for travel!

RE: BMW vs KTM vs Triumph vs Honda Adventure motorcycle

I would suggest a Suzuki DR400 or DR650 or a Kaw KLR in that disp. class. If you're alone on any unknown trail surface you need to be able to get out from under the bike and have a chance of picking it up when it's laying downhill. Most of your mishaps will occur on sloped trails or sand. You need to get on that bike and get some experience, find someone with trail experience to clue you into the methods and enjoy! All the models I suggested can be purchased for less than 5 grand and 5 yrs old. They also can run down the highway at 70 if you wish, and won't brake the bank for insurance. Dave

RE: Corrugated underbelly

RV manufacturers buy it in large rolls (36" or larger diameter) and cut to fit. Try surplus dealers in Elkhart, Ind. You might try Bontragers Surplus RV Supplies , of White Pigeon, Mich. Just north of Elkhart. Phone: 866-483-7017, Shipping wt would be low, but oversize charge. Dave

RE: “Oh Oh, I’m not going to make it” stories that ended well

1966,four first yr teachers heading home for Christmas, from Miami to NW Ohio on I75 in a 63 Nova. At that time 75 ended in Corbin, KY and restarted in Bereau KY you drove on old 25 between the cities. When we arrived in Corbin it started snowing, a wet heavy snow, 30 min later all traffic stopped due to no traction and a valley ahead. We sat there and decided to creep past stuck traffic after the snow (3-4 inches) stopped. We made it thru the valley and back up the other side only to find southbound traffic at the top parked 3 & 4 vehicles wide on a two lane Rd. We kept going for over 7 miles of stopped traffic, the jamup contained several loaded school buses, a patrol car,a couple plows and an ambulance with lights on! The Toledo Blade had a story that people were still stranded there 3 days later. We arrived in Bereau at 7:30pm, 7 hrs to go 25 est miles. Get to onramp for NB 75 and it's got South bound coming up it, we're 4th car waiting to get on when a big Buick pulling a travel trailer (20+) get stuck on the ramp. He's in the wrong place at the wrong time for behind him is a Pontiac 2 door who proceeds back up and them RAM the trailer. He does this at least 4 times until the ramp is clear, the back of the trailer is busted open with Christmas presents, pots and pans, and misc. scattered on the road. The Pontiac hood is bent into an invereted V, headlites gone, and radiator pushed back into fan. Head out the side window he zooms off thru town in a cloud of steam. We got on 75N and 7 miles north drove out of any snow! Thats my story and I'm sticking to it! Dave

RE: Traveling southbound through Atlanta on I-75 in 5th wheel

All semi-trucks not making a delivery in downtown Atlanta must use the bypass. The road conditions from all the trucks very poor if your not running 22.5 tires you could disappear! I've gone thru 9 years after 10pm and before 5am all days of the wk, try it you'll wonder why they wasted all that asphalt? Dave

RE: Coleman Mach Condensate Drain

Steele Rubber Products, Denver. Very good dense AC gaskets in my opinion. Dave
