    We’ve also found that we get a lot of sloshing with a full fresh water tank when taking S curves at speed. Do you find you have a similar issue or are we just doing it wrong?

    How big is your fresh water tank?

    Your set-up looks so much more comfortable than mine! I have a relatively small vehicle and I like to move around, so I don’t typically have any issues just staying at a pull-over. I still find it quite tricky to find good places though. Free Campsites has been my go-to, but I’m excited to try some of the others you mentioned now.

    Thank you for the boost of confidence, I’ve had my TT for a yr now and only bee to Koa, not bad but boondocking is the main reason I purchased it, a little nervous and not sure where to go. Thank you.

    Love the video! Boondocking is definitely not for everyone and takes a lot of preparation and setup. Thanks for sharing

    Hi just found your videos find them interesting especially since they are made in Canada. However, I did notice something I should warn you about. You were talking about tools you need and mentioned a bottle jack. They are good jacks but laying them on their side is bad. When that is done the fluid inside the jack gets at the seals it eats them away and causes the fluid to leak out making the jack useless especially when you need it. I know from experience. I had 2 from CT. and they both did the same thing So now I am careful and stand it up securely on its base , Just a heads up for you.

  18. Brad Harber on May 13, 2023 at 1:53 pm

    Thanks for the great information. Curious, do you haul enough wood to burn fires most nights? If not do you forage for it or??

    we definitely gotta go boondocking more often… we’ve only done it a couple times but once was after a hurricane when we had no power, so that was out of necessity… lol How cold was that water you were "bathing" in? lol God bless and stay safe.. Kevin and Kristi

  25. Chris Clements on May 13, 2023 at 2:12 pm

    I’d do it if I had 5 pitbulls & a 44 magnum. .. I’d be afraid of humans and bears equally.
