Once again the leaves have changed color, the wind is blowing them off in a hurry… fall is well on its way now and winter is lurking once again. BUT if you are a camper, don’t despair, after all there is nothing better than camping in a Helsport Dome, Pasvick, Varanger or Finnmark tent, all of which can accommodate a wood stove. These lavuu tents will keep you all cozy and warm! Be it fall or winter these tents are so easy to set up, add a stove setup and there is no need to feel cold or miserable camping in the winter.
The Gstove is fantastic for this application, allowing one to cook all your meals with ease. Now with the oven and additional pipe cooking space, there is no shortage of cooking space! Make a lasagna, apple pie or quiche, these are all doable on the Gstove, no need to be a culinary expert! Add a couple reindeer skins for insulation under your sleeping bag and you are all set for a wonderful fall/winter camping experience!
Far too few people balk at the idea of winter camping for fear of the cold but really if you have the right gear it is an incredible experience. Try it this winter you may soon become addicted to the beauty and ease of winter camping!
The first weekend “real use” of the scout trailer and we have to say we are both impressed with this trailer! It tracks extremely well, so well in fact that fully loaded we had to keep looking back to see it was still there, we really did not feel this trailer at all, which makes for really easy driving and we had her loaded!
We put a Snomaster 42s in one of the back sliders with a battery pack behind it for all the lights and the fridge. On the slider next to the fridge we made a custom box to sit on the slider so we could pack her to the hilt 🙂
We also designed a little table top that sits on the wheel well for additional cooking space, which was tremendous!
We had a sundogx on the top of the scout and a 270 awning which both served their purpose more than adequately!
Below are our setups, a scout trailer with a sundogx and 270 awning and a F150 with a big sky and a 270 awning, lots of mods to both setups. More on the mods as we prepare for our trip in September around Labrador and Newfoundland.
