The Weekend Vehicle
The weekend traveler vehicle is really taking shape as of late. Now during the winter is a good time to really dial it in before our cycling events start back up; which will be soon as the 24 Hours in the Old Pueblo is soon approaching. I have recently built a bed in the back of the van that fits Laura and I nicely at a size of 4' x 6'3" and now just received on Friday an awning system manufactured by Rhino-Racks out of Australia. We have been looking around for an awning system that mounts directly to the Yakima roof rack system and Rhino-Racks has it dialed in. Only took about 15 minutes to get it all together and mount right on the crossbars of the rack system. No drilling, screwing, bolting or mangling of the van itself. This awning is 8' x 6'5" and I also ordered the extension that makes it even larger or acts as a wall. Now if the snow stops I can go over to Moab soon and try it out.
