The search for the perfect mobile, off-grid living solution continues. Over the past year, we've already seen many such designs, from within the crisp halls of the Düsseldorf Caravan Salon, to their natural habitat at Overland Expo, to the occasional EcoTrek or Fieldsleeper International debut. Another fairly new design, the ADAK Trailer is what happens when a group of lifelong sportsmen huddled around the campfire get to talking about what's wrong with camper design. It combines ride-anywhere grit and comfy, spacious living.  Read More

The SharkStopper PSR is worn on the ankle, and produces orca-like sounds
