GREAT WHITE BUFFALO (2016 carli cummins build)

We do a walk through of the Keystone Carbon 364 Toy Hauler (38' 3 slides). This is pretty significant for us because we have been looking into a new rig for awhile. There have been a few issues that have been adding up with our 2015 Keystone Cougar 313 ril and we thought our stay in our home town of Simi Valley would be a great time to take a look at new rigs.

Here's a list of the issues we are having with our current rig.

1. Separate office space.

2. on board generator.

3. Fresh water capacity.

4. Good storage area for our bikes.

5. A place for quests to stay when visiting.

6.Being able to easily walk around the bed.

There are a few others things that we have considered also, this is just a walk through. When RVing full-time smaller problems often seem as larger ones, so we figured we should address them as soon as possible. Also buying your first rig is extremely stressful and you can never find everything you want. Hope you enjoy the video!
 
In this video we do a 6 Month recap of living in our RV full-time. There were highs and lows, many highlights and we learnt a lot. Stay tuned to see.

6 month update! We give a recap from our first 6 months of living in a RV full-time. There were highs and lows and memories made.

We break the video into 3 categories.

3. Highlights.

2. Lessons learned.

1. Expectations vs reality.

Make sure you stick around till the end. Hope you enjoy the video, let us know your thoughts down in the comments!



 
We drove all the way across the country for a wedding! Dang we clean up nice, we are ready for wedding festivities. Congratulations Matt and Natalie!

The following day we install some Air Lift airbags that are much needed. We hope the the bags level the truck, as well as help with chucking. The install is quite simple, especially when you have a garage like my dad's! Hope you enjoy this video, have you installed air bags?

We head to the Colorado River with friends for a long hot weekend. This is a family trip that our friends do every year and we happen to keep getting invited! While we were there the temperatures were ranging from 100-120 degrees! It's safe to say that we had to get a little creative considering that our trailer only has one A/C unit. This video has so much fun packed in, boating, volleyball, swimming and much more.

Also stick around till the very end, we save a Prius! From a sand pit, our friends took a wrong turn at night. We ended up going on a rescue mission! Hope you enjoy the video! Off Road friends should appreciate the Prius rescue.... It was super simple!

 
We are having more fun on the water. Jet skiing, paddle boarding and picking up floating river trash! Pirate Cove Resort is pretty amazing they have everything you could ask for. If you hang around till the end of this video you can see the amazing sunsets the area has to offer. We also give a quick resort summary/ review! Our thoughts on the place, let us know if you have any questions! Hope you enjoy the video!



 
We got a new rig! We are so excited, it took us a while to make a decision and we finally pulled the trigger, but we did it! Swapping rigs can be quite overwhelming, it's fairly similar to moving in a sticks and bricks but EVERYTHING eventually needs to find it's exact location!

With this video we are trying to show you our feelings that came with our process. From getting rid of our original trailer and the memories. To the excitement, hard work, and joy!

Please let us know your thoughts, have you switched rigs before?

Well we got a new trailer and it's very large. Our first shake down trip didn't go quite as planned, we had many problems. We don't let that get us down, in Big Bear California for the weekend with friends. We do some boondocking near Big Bear.

While we are in the area we head over to the Alpine Zoo! They help rehab injured animals and give homes to orphaned one's. 90% of the animals brought in are released back into their natural habitats.

We also take some time to visit with a good friend that moved into the area many years ago. He bought a house and has been living his dream, fishing, hunting and snowboarding. Hope you enjoy the video, let us know your thoughts on the new rig and the problems that we encounter.

 
In this video we show you how we converted our standard toy hauler ramp door into a patio/porch. Many of these ramp's come like this from the factory but our 2017 Keystone Carbon did not have that option. So we decided to add it ourselves. We are by no means professionals, this is just a simple way we converted our toy hauler ramp into a patio. Now we have a dual purpose ramp, we can load up our toys and then set it into patio mode. Make sure you use hardware strong enough for you exact trailer and configuration. Linked below is what we used. Feel free to purchase from our Amazon link, just know that we will get a commission for your purchase. Hope this helps!

 
After having issues with our 5th wheel contacting our trailer we starting looking into all options. The Andersen Ultimate Connection kept catching our eye, this hitch is lighter and stronger than ever! Weighing in at 35 lbs it makes the removal process simple and helps with our payload.

With this installation I filmed as much detail as I could while also getting the job done. This hitch helps solve the problem short bed truck owners face, the base pushes the hitching point back 4 inches. Then when you install the coupler depending on your setup and configuration you can gain another 4 inches. We gained 8 inches of clearance, and that has been enough for us. Towing has been great! Let us know your thoughts!

 
We go through our process to finding a free camping. We have been doing this for many years, so for us this seems like a simple thing but we realize there is a lot of information out there. From selecting your state and region. To different land use, apps, and websites that can help you along the way. The point of this video is so that you can learn the process, learn the rules of the land you are camping on and also learn potential hazards/dangers that you could run into. Like driving a 38 foot Toy hauler down a dirt road! Hopefully this brings a good amount of value to you. Thanks for watching!

 
Come along as we explore a few different areas along the 395 HWY in California. Rv living allows us the freedom to travel where ever our hearts, by simply following the weather and maintaining a strong cellular signal.

While camping north of Bishop California we head into town to explore there small shops and grab some coffee. The following day we wake up pretty early to make the trek north up the 395 to Ruby Lake Trail Head. The hike ends up being a perfect day hike in an extremely beautiful area. On our drive back to camp/home we decide to hitch up and head south back to Fossil Falls for the night. They have a small campsite that is VERY primitive, but only $6 a night.

We have driven past Fossil Falls a number of times and never bothered to stop. Last Thanksgiving weekend we decided to stop on the way home and wish we had done so much sooner. It is a very cool area.

I totally agree, It's a pretty cool area, you can also camp behind on the lake bed.
 
This video is action packed! RV Living at it's finest, boondocking with friends, beautiful California desert and Prerunning. There's a little bit of everything in this one. We even break our truck! This video is about our journey to meet up with friends at their annual desert trip, Desert Palooza 2019. This event has been going strong for 15 years, out in Jawbone Canyon CA.

Along with all of that we show your one of our tips for fueling up with a large rig, give a few more details on our Grill that so many people keep asking about and of course we take you along for the ride while we go desert prerunning. Hope you enjoy the video!

 
Here we have a little how to video! I am by no means a mechanic, Ill show you my process for the "preform maintenance" light on my 2016 RAM 2500 Cummins turbo diesel. In my opinion it's a fairly simple job, with the research and information provided you can do this service yourself. Saving you a large sum of money, between $350.00-750.00. This project took me roughly 35 minutes and that's with filming. The filter costs $54.00 (linked below), please let me know in the comments if you have any questions!

 
Well we left our trailer behind! This video is slightly different, as we take a weekend trip with out our trailer. Headed up to Sequoia National Forest and the Trail of 100 Giants. My parents have had a cabin up in Wofford Heights California for quite a while now and we decided it would make for a great get away. What do you do to get out of your trailer? Do you feel the need to change it up?

The Trail of 100 Giants is an absolutely amazing place. There is a small parking lot and in November it was quite busy. For a $5.00 fee you can park, use the toilets and walk the well maintained paved path.

 
If you like BBQ and RVing this might be your video! We team up with The BBQ HQ in Simi Valley California as their brand ambassadors. We show you their showroom that is open to the public and a quick unboxing of our new GMG Davy Crockett smoker. This might be the perfect smoker for RV Life or just tailgating. It runs on very low power and it's super portable (see specs on there site). If you have any questions about our local shop BBQ HQ or Green Mountain Grills please let me know!

 
TRUCK UPDATE!!!
In this video we are sharing some knowledge. If you like to tow your 5th wheel or travel trailer and still off-road, prerun, or 4x4, this might be helpful! We install Daystar airbag cradles, this cool system allows your truck or SUV to have full suspension travel and still tow heavy loads. We had previously ripped out one of our airbags due to the airbag limiting our droop travel. Now that issue is solved and we can still tow heavy loads. If you have any questiong please let us know!

 
WHO THOUGHT PICKING UP TRASH COULD BE SO MUCH FUN!

We are in Barstow California for the annual desert clean up and prerunning! this is an amazing event where overlanders, campers and outdoor enthusiasts get together and clean a local desert. It's a great event, the desert community gets together with many sponsors. They provide, all the cleaning supplies, dumpsters, t-shirts and event a huge raffle. We went out with the toy hauler, filled the truck with trash and watched some trucks jump. Hopefully this catches on!
