  Ultra small high tech cot
Posted by: Reserector - 5thAugust2022, 08:30 PM - Forum: Outdoor Equipment & Activity - Replies (5)

I saw one of these on a motorcycle forum, but it was by Aerostitch and it was $200.
I researched and found a $56 knock-off.

It is fiddly and hard to assemble, but it packs to the size of a load of bread and is really comfortable.

  Boat re-power project

This is my 2006 Century 2301 center console.

The Yamaha F225 has a cracked or corroded starboard cylinder head.
I have talked to several dealers and repair shops. Consensus is 4-6 weeks before they can even look at it, and absolute best case scenario is minimum $6,000 to repair and more likely $12,000.

We decided re-powering with a used motor is the quickest route back on the water.
This is a 2008 Evinrude ETEC 225. I made a road trip to Baton Rouge to pick it up.

It rode to work with me today because I haven’t fully worked out how I’m even getting off my truck.

  Front hitch receiver
Posted by: Reserector - 8thMay2022, 04:15 PM - Forum: Gadgets, Gizmos & Kits - No Replies

I bought this Draw-Tite front receiver on ebay for a tad more than $200.

My '03 Silverado has factory tow hooks, which makes it simple to install.
Simply remove four existing bolts, align the hitch, and install with four longer bolts (included).
Without factory hooks, it needs the included Carriage bolts and plates.

I have a dirt bike carrier coming that will haul my DRZ400S when the camper is on the back.
I can also use a hitch hauler to carry my generator and a gas can for those times when we don't have shore power, but want to run the camper A/C.[Image: 568d8530a6324cd1faf677027a286093.jpg][Image: f2c67720888fa836bb5010bcfdab8716.jpg][Image: 6b27b0e625e04bde9a504f20031f0565.jpg][Image: 8e4a515d3e14c8a6fa89c4ee48674d38.jpg]
