Power Practical Luminoodle Review

Innovative Salt Lake City-based Power Practical has quickly made a reputation for making high quality and innovative products! Having great products like the Power Pot XL, the USB Practical Meter, and USB battery packs means getting and conserving power on the go couldn't be easier.

ShiftPod Festival Tents

The SHIFTPOD is a lightweight shelter system that is designed for easy transportation and weather resistance in all kinds of environments and conditions. A note of caution needs to be applied here…a lot of people are going to ask about your Moon tent and whether or not you got it from NASA lol.

Grand Trunk Hammock

“Goods For The Road”, that is the moto for Grand Trunk, and it totally makes sense.

Their products ARE the goods! We had the chance to test out our new Hammock “Skeeter Beeter Pro” camo hammock on a camping trip a few weeks ago. We love trying out new goods… Reason for Camo? Why not blend in with the campsite instead of being an eye sore!

EcoXGear Wireless Speakers

Both the ECOXBT and the ECOCARBON and in fact many of the other products from EcoXGear are waterproof. We also tested and BUS JUNKIES approved the ultra compact ECOPEBBLE. Not water-resistant, but completely waterproof. You can literally dunk this in water until it is fully submerged.

We recently partnered up with the good folks over at SoloStove who manufacture a well-designed piece of kit we had to try! When they sent us this unit we decided to put the SoloStove to the ultimate test for Bus campers…. making the morning coffee.

SunJack Solar Panels

We realize that driving a vintage vehicle in the modern era can offer a variety of technical challenges for even the most savvy techie. How do you keep your smartphones and electronics at full power when you probably don’t even have a cigarette lighter to adapt your gadgets to?

RUMPL Sleeping Blanket Review

They called it the Rumpl and touted it as the “world’s best blanket,” a modern blanket inspired by active lifestyles and made from the same stuff as your favorite high-end sleeping bag or puffy jacket. It totally rocks for camping in the BUS!

Let’s find out more.


Blazecut Fire Suppression System


FIRE! One of the worst nightmares for a vintage VW owner to think about, and hopefully not have to experience. Always, when in doubt replace your old, worn, crusty or questionable fuel lines or your investment could be the next victim of engine fire.
