    G'day everybody,

    I couldn't find a specific Camping section so I hope its ok to post this here.

    So I've started gearing up for some light off-road trips and I'm interested to see what everybody else has regarding camping gear. What you take, how you store it etc.

    I've spend a few years camping and bush bashing around Australia. I started out with a 93 Diesel 4Runner, a tent and some very basic cooking gear and over the years evolved into a home made custom box trailer with roof tent and a 09 Hilux to pull it. (See Pic's)

    So far for the Tundra I've got the basic's.
    Tent, chairs, portable single burner stove, extra tent pegs and a tarp.
    Looking to get some sort of shade setup.

    You are off to a good start. Very good. This setup works real good for me: upload_2016-3-15_17-21-22.jpg upload_2016-3-15_17-21-51.jpg

    Family of 4. I built a trailer to support the conveniences the wife required for her to go camping including a camp stove/oven, mini Weber grill, 21 gallon water tank with a RV water pump, deep cycle battery, inverter, solar, 5 gallon propane tank, IndelB fridge, and a bunch of other random shit.

    So
    These setups are all amazing! And here I was thinking I was the only fella who built a box trailer with a roof tent.

    I love the idea of those tents but I can't get past the fact that the straps and tent material rub on the paint. Add a dirty truck and wind to the situation and I cringe.
