RE: Water filtration when boondocking

We have had a Berkey for several years with 4 of the black filters. It isn't just a water filter but also a purifier, big difference! You won't need replacement filters for many years as you just occasionally scrub the filters clean, unlike most other short-lived systems. It is gravity filtered, but the water runs through fairly quickly. We use it constantly for drinking and cooking at home and always take it camping with us. It sits on the counter and gets strapped in some cleats when traveling (water must be low otherwise it will slosh out on rough roads). It gets filled at the camper sink out of our FW tank. We have yet to use "pond" water, rain water, etc., but feel confident we could if we had to. 100% recommend this simple and effective system if you have a place to put it in the camper. Plus, if there is a zombie apocalypse, you know you can always have clean water. I think pricewise, it pays for itself quickly.

RE: Wood holding tank?

I'd never make a holding tank out of wood. The owner painted the interior with RedGard, a flexible, thick "paint" that is used in 2 coats on top of cement board behind the tiles in showers. It keeps water from seeping through cracks in grout through to the porous wall. Theoretically, if that layer stays 100% intact, the contraption should remain watertight. However, I think all the flexing at the joints and pipe junctions would eventually crack the RedGard.

RE: Truck camper title?

AZ doesn't care about our TC, no title, no registration, no fees. It is just cargo.

RE: Camper basically chopped in half by tree

Several years ago we were at a CG in PA and set up at the edge of a tall forest. A family with several small girls pitched their tent in the spot next to us. Rain was forecast and they decided to pack up. The next morning we saw a huge branch had crashed down on their exact tent spot. It would have done serious damage. We couldn't believe how lucky they were...

RE: What did you do to your Camper Today?

Kinda washed it and noticed that all the gray decals facing east and south have bleached to a lovely PURPLE under our relentless desert sun. West is fine as it is shaded by the house.

RE: Truck Camper Models with 3 Beds?

The bunk in the Northstar STC can hold 300 lbs. It is sturdy. It is 72" long but a little claustrophobic in height, but a young teen should be totally fine.

RE: Truck Camper Models with 3 Beds?

The Northstar 12' STC has a large bunk above a large dinette bed (bunk turns into regular cabinet storage when not a bed). My 2 teen boys spent several summers with this arrangement. This is a non-slide, side entry, dry bath, no basement camper though.
