After the article about the generator we bought to use with Cocoon, our travel trailer, several people have asked: “How loud is it?” To give you some feel for the sound the generator makes, I made some rudimentary measurements with a sound pressure level meter.
We need to run Cocoon’s air conditioner on sweltering humid hot summer nights to get a restful night’s sleep. After a lot of research, we bought a generator that can power the Airxcel Mach-3+ when boondocking.
We had a choice between two air conditioner models for our Casita travel trailer. This article describes our analysis of how each of the units fits us. Spoiler alert, it depends; neither unit dominates the other for all needs and preferences.
The Gobi rack we ordered earlier this year was installed today. It increases the cargo space in Campbell so we can carry all of the safety and off-road gear we need.
Do you struggle with carrying enough water in your off-road vehicle? Also, with keeping the weight low and near the center?
Some necessary gear we carry is only used occasionally or even rarely. We put that part of our kit on the roof of Campbell to free up precious interior space. Weather-sealed bins ratchet strapped to the cargo rack hold the gear.
