Glamping Goes to a New Level With Sunshades from Doty Hill Desgins

When I bought my T@b, I thought it was pretty difficult to improve upon the already adorable little trailer. Then, I discovered window awnings. And, although I liked the idea of window awnings, I had difficulty finding a fabric that I liked. Last year, I found a clearance on a camping tarp with a pattern that I loved and that matched my little turquoise T@b, perfectly. I scarfed up several of these tarps, as I discovered that they were no longer being produced. Then, in one of the greatest coups of my adult life, I conned my mother into sewing both window awnings and a custom sunshade for my T@b out of the tarps....

Little Guy Max Review: A Good Start

  • August 27, 2017

Disclaimer: My apologies for the photo quality. I did not get any great photos or video. I took some video, but it really stunk, to be honest. The sunlight was just too bright and I forgot my neutral density filters. I pulled some photos from the video for illustrative purposes. I highly recommend watching one of the many walk-throughs available online for more accurate photos. If you missed it, I recently created a spec comparison document for the Max and 400. When Little Guy introduced their new Max travel trailer, I will admit, I was aghast. I thought it was a direct rip-off of the T@b 400 and that...

Crashing uCamp and Thoughts on the New T@b 400

What do you on a humid, overcast Sunday afternoon in July? You crash the inaugural Ucamp event in Sugarcreek, Ohio, of course! After catching Nathan Brown’s photo of his  T@b set up at Winklepleck Grove, I decided I might try to swing by and say, “Hello” to the early arrivals and meet some of my online acquaintances. I swung by Akron, picked my nephew and his girlfriend, and away the three of us, and Rocky, proceeded towards Sugarcreek. As we approached the grove, I noticed that several T@bs were already parked and set up and more arrived in the short time were were at the campground. ...

Camground Review: Rosy Lane

Location Summary Overview Taylor Canyon is one of my favorite places to camp. It has a rugged beauty with towering cliffs and a river with mountain snowmelt running through it. I usually camp at Onemile Campground, which has electric connections and good cell service, but they had no empty sites, so my sister-in-law, Nina and I decided to find a spot at one of the other many campgrounds in Taylor Canyon. Taylor Canyon is a popular area and although there are some walk-up sites, we knew we would have limited options as mid-July is the height of the wildflower season in Crested...
