Western Pacific Airstream Restoration

In 1962, the Western Pacific Railroad Company custom-built ten 40’ Airstream trailers, at which time they were used as living quarters for the railroad’s Foreman. These trailers were a model unlike anything that had been built before, as they combined two 20’ trailers in the middle, and were full-size at both ends without the usual sloping end piece. Comfortable from every angle and vantage point. Continue reading

Jero Shelter

A yurt is a portable, round tent traditionally covered with skins or felt and used as a dwelling by nomads in Central Asia. German designer Uula Jero, intrigued by the circular shape of the yurt, decided to create a modern yurt and the Jero Shelter is the result. Unlike traditional yurts which are very heavy and weigh around 500 kg / 1,102 lb (many of which have a wooden structure), the Jero Yurt weighs only 110 kg (242 lb), and can fit into a car or even be towed by bike. The most appealing element of the Jero Yort is its traditional shape. Its circular design defines an ancient way of living and the layout of the interior has a distinct and historic charm.

How many of us wish we had another pair of hands? I do. Often. Whether I am carrying too many groceries or all of the kid’s stuff, I frequently just need an extra hook. The Qlipter was designed by Mina Yoo, a Seattle entrepreneur who invented the gadget after she became a mom. And it is such a helpful invention- the Qlipter is a combination of a carabiner and a hook and can support up to 50 pounds! You can use it for everything- when camping outdoors you can hang stuff on a tree, when you’re travelling it can attach your luggage, and of course, with the kids, it can attach to your stroller and carry the endless quantities of equipment we seem to accumulate.

HC1 Travel Trailer

It is my dream to one day take my family on a long trailer trip and when I saw the HC1 Travel Trailer I got all excited again. Unlike most trailers, the design of the HC1 is especially light (1100 Lbs. dry weight) which means that it can be towed with a standard vehicle! Another outstanding feature of the HC1 is that its internal configuration is modular- you can take out the interior if you want to use it as a hauler (to carry a kayak or motorcycle) or pack it full of features- a bed the size of your choice, a kitchenette, toilet, storage etc. Continue reading
