Camping setups, Mitsu specific? Let's see em!
« on: July 26, 2018, 10:07:41 AM »
Seems like all the TLC's, Jeeps, Xterrras and Tacomas get their fair share of exposure when it comes to how folks set them up. Why not Mitsus?

Let's see your setup, whether its RTT, ground tent or bivy sack. Maybe you sleep in the rig, maybe you don't. How do you carry all that stuff? I've changed mine up drastically over the years, but am back to Shorty camping, which has its own set of challenges. I'll start a new post with pics of mine, but I'd like to see yours too!

I kick it lagom style:









Every bit of the bed assembly (frame, platform. mattress, bedding, etc) added up is under 50lbs total, the platform doubles as recovery ladders and it puts nothing on the roof so the CoG and cdA are not negatively affected. 

Not a ton of vertical room but very comfortable for two full sized adults.

I have a plywood platform that works well, but you do need to be awake when you roll yourself out the side door, that is a long way down.
But the different thing I have done, screen windows,





These were made from hardware store parts.

The screen windows are creative!

I attacked that problem with these:

And I keep them stored in one of these:

So they pack about the size of a burrito, just slightly less delicious.
