Winnebago, Mercedes Power Up All-Electric Camper Vans

With vehicle electrification happening across the industry, it’s no surprise that van and RV makers are also looking to offer a fully-electric option for travelers, and it may have many advantages over gas-powered rigs in the future.

Midland Debuts GMRS Portable Repeater System

Midland has debuted the MXR10 repeater, which should help greatly extend the range of your walkies if you tend to need long-range communication away from cellular systems. For those unfamiliar, a “repeater” is a device that receives a radio signal, greatly boosts the power, and then re-broadcasts (repeats) it, all pretty much instantaneously. It’s what amateur radio users, search and rescue teams, and professional radio broadcasters have used since the 1970s to send signals far and wide.

Warn Winch Remote Recall

Winch maker Warn has issued a recall for over 120,000 VR EVO series winch remote controls that may activate if water gets into them. To be clear, the recall is for the winches’ detachable remote controls, not the VR EVO winches themselves. 

Suzuki Debuts 5-Door Jimny that We Want but Can’t Have

American fans of Suzuki’s tough-but-tiny Suzuki Jimny 4X4 will have to continue to admire the machines from a distance, and the heartache may intensify with the introduction in India of a new 5-door variant that would seem tailor-made for “bigger car” markets like the U.S. 

Toyota Hilux GR Sport

Toyota Australia: No Hilux GR Sport Truck For You, America

The list of fun motorized toys that don’t make it to American shores is long and sad. Perhaps one of the most frustrating absences are some of the vehicles plying the Australian Outback. Now, U.S. drivers have one more missed Aussie treat to lament: the new Toyota HiLux GR Sport truck.

This Trailer Is So Light, Almost Any Vehicle Can Pull It

If you’re considering an EV or a smaller car and want to pull a trailer for camping, working, or a day at the beach, you usually have very few options. Most trailers are far too heavy to be towed by small cars. That is until the Polydrops P19 [Shorty] hit the market.
