    Campers For Rangers

    I asked that question at an RV show last year when standing in a monster diesel-pusher RV since it had air brakes. Salesman said nope, since it's a private coach anyone can drive one. Frankly that concept is a little scary to me. I help drive my bud's 32' unit from Pittsburgh to Charlotte...

    Campers For Rangers

    I always thought something like the 1969 Jeep CJ-5 camper with its own axle would be great for my Sport Trac. :D www.cj5camper.com

    Campers For Rangers

    The Capri Cowboy says 695 lb so even if you add the optional a/c and jacks, beer, a bit of food, other camping gear, beer, clothes, and beer, you should still be no more than 1000 lb.

    Which Transmission Fluid is best?

    Terminology

    "Hot water heater". Hot water doesn't need to be heated. What you want is a COLD water heater.

    Campers For Rangers

    Here are a couple I found at an RV show. If you like more than a tent but don't want a trailer. Double check the width in bed but both manufacturers say they will fit mid-size trucks like the Ranger. Rayzr. I was in one of these at an RV show. Not bad for the size although it's heavier...
