    If you can't afford a Type II, this tent is the next best alternative for experiencing the 0-60 time and crash test rating of the real deal.

      Not to mention the heating and air conditioning. Plus the stability in high winds.

      Twice the power of the original.

    In fact it could be more awesome: Westfalia Camper Camping Tent. "Yo dawg, we heard you like camping, so we made your van with a tent on it into a tent with a tent on it so you can camp while you camp in a Camper camping tent."

      Yeah, where's the pop-up part?

    I see it's also available in red and yellow, but I'm still going to have to hold out for a 21-window version with safari windows.

    I just accepted a new job driving a Water Tender (a semi-tanker that supports the helicopters fighting wild-land fires), and since I'll be in the middle of nowhere with some time while loading/unloading I was thinking of getting one of those Smarty-Ass-Phones so I can Post/Read what's going on here on the rare occasion when I can get a signal. I've got a "free" upgrade with Verizon, and while I'm an Apple-Guy, I've heard the iPhone gets horrible reception even though its got every app in the world. GPS would be super handy, but do any (all?) of them work without a signal? My gut instinct is to wait and see what the Hot-Shots use, but that means I'll be mostly incommunicado for at least the next two weeks, maybe three. I leave early Mon. morning, and there's a chance that I'll be back into a Town this coming Thurs. but I'll have to find an open node for my lap-top to work. Any thoughts? (assuming we're not all looting after the Rapture).

      The GPS will still work in most cases, but may take time to start up if it can't pull AGPS data over the network. You'll also be limited getting position data laid over whatever map data the has cached, unless there's an app somewhere that holds local copies of road maps (which there could very well be, but I've never looked for one). No idea what Verizon's data coverage is like, though you can bet it'll be a lot spotter than voice.

      i recommend the best HTC/google (android) phone you can get through verizon.. i'm not too familiar with what they offer (i'm on a sprint business plan) but i love my HTC. and (to me) android is a lot better than iOS or any windows mobile (i haven't messed with WP7.. but from past experience, i stay away from windows mobile)

        Agreed. The Android phones offer equivalent functionality to the iPhone at generally better prices. I use Google Maps for Navi – unless you're indoors your GPS "coverage" is likely to be better than your data coverage. When that happens, the phone knows where it is but can't access the mapping data to provide direction. You need both for navigation.
        I'm on Sprint. Better pricing compared to Verizon but data coverage not quite as robust. That said, I'm rarely without a signal even in the rural midwest.

          I did just look, and there's an app for Android called CoPilot that uses pre-installed map and routing data to do GPS navigation, so you don't need a data connection. Verizon does charge an arm and a leg for data though – one of the reasons I jumped ship to Sprint earlier this year.

    For those that didn't see it on facebook, earlier this week I was stopped at a light behind a Porsche 356. The next day I saw an Aston Mrtin DB7, and then this morning I passed an (admittedly less exotic) P1800ES. I'm starting to think I should get a bunch of cheap HD camcorders, mount them in my car, and make a photoblog out of the weird/awesome stuff that I see on my daily commute…

    It looks like an inflatable van. Bring an inflatable date.

    Is it a decoy to make the squares think an army of dirty hippies is massing?
