I have this knife. It was my Dad's, and he won it for swimming across the lake at summer camp in the 1940s. By today's standards, it's a crappy knife. Still, it was enough for an adolescent kid to use and keep for their entire life, passing it on to his son a generation later. I love this knife because it's handy and because of the significance imparted to it through its decades of use. Maybe you have something in your life that you've used and loved for long enough that your relationship with. The object transcends everyday utility and has achieved a level of sentimentality. In my mind, fond memories lead to longevity. We need more of that in the products we consume and ultimately discard.
I founded the All Good Equipment Company a short time ago. I've been interested in small, efficient spaces and cozy ones for as long as I can remember. I built the first prototype in my garage, which was an outlet for creativity and working on things I'm passionate about. I'm an Industrial Designer by trade, so you can bet this product will differ from other trailer products.
DURABILITY: Our trailers are built to last for generations. We use the highest quality components and materials. The construction is solid but light. Also, our trailers are straightforward. We stick to the basics to ensure the design remains timeless, regardless of changing trends and relentless technological advances.
SENTIMENT: To achieve some level of sentiment, I figure a product must be enjoyable. Our trailer is designed to have an intuitive, practical function coupled with timeless aesthetics. The trailer is meant to support your adventure rather than consume your attention. The goal was to make something versatile and easy to live with, whether out in the wild or parked in your driveway.
Zephyr was founded in a garage nearly 30 years ago to give the street rod industry the best metal finishing products.
Early on, they learned that there was a considerable demand for superior metal polish due to the phenomenal growth of the Heavy Duty truck industry. Although several products were available, none provided the "mirror shine" that truckers were looking for. Pro 40 "Perfection" Metal Polish was created to fill this demand, giving truckers the beautiful mirror shine and simplicity of application they had been looking for.
The outstanding quality of Pro 40 "Perfection" Metal Polish served as the foundation for Zephyr's initial word-of-mouth growth. Later when they established their own line of buffing wheels and metal polishing compound bars and accessories. Based purely on each trucker's devotion to these high-performing items, they continue to grow by word of mouth from one trucker to the next. Today, they have developed into the gold standard for polishing products in the heavy-duty transportation sector as their client base and dealer network continue to expand. In addition to the Heavy Duty vehicle sector, Zephyr is currently the most well-known and reputable brand name in the RV, marine, automotive, vintage trailer, and other businesses.
Their clients are like relatives. They appreciate each and every one of them very much. They've never forgotten that they owe it to all of their devoted customers and dealers to not just offer the greatest metal finishing. Check out their exhibitor booth at the CampNation Expo!
What if you didn’t have to plumb a toilet and black water tank into your next build but still had all of the convenience and cleanliness of a standard flush toilet? The Laveo portable electric toilet is waterless, odorless, chemical-free, low-maintenance, and compact.
When done, users push the flush button as they would with a traditional toilet. However, instead of requiring water, extensive plumbing, or expensive chemicals, the proprietary Laveo double-layered barrier bag automatically encloses urine and stool in a spill-resistant, odorless way. The dispenser automatically brings in new, clean barrier bag material for the next flush. Every time you flush, the barrier material lining the bowl is collapsed and twisted, essentially sealing the waste and compressing it into the bottom of the container. This patented process of sealing the waste in the barrier material ensures that there is nothing to see or smell. The Laveo™ by Dry Flush is an innovative and practical way to add a highly sanitary toilet to campsites, trailers, vans, and RVs without messy hook-ups.
We Welcome Laveo to the CampNation Expo!
In 2012 we started producing events for camping enthusiasts. Catering to the vintage trailering community with themed rallies like Trailerfest and Glamperfest. With up to 300 vintage trailers at each outing, live bands, and family fun, these get-togethers always sell out. We are still hosting several rallies each year on the west coast. www.trailerfestrally.com
In 2015 the interest in vintage trailers was growing. There was a demand for an event to teach people how to correctly restore their trailers. We developed the Boot Camp Learning Experience. Boot Camp was a weekend of workshops are presented by professionals willing to share their craft. Each year Boot Camp sold out but due to the format, the workshops were only available to 150 participants a year. Boot Camp had to expand to be accessible to more people. CampNation EXPO was conceived.
We camp in a van, vintage trailers, and a Capri cab-over camper. Many of our friends also have several camping options, from roughing it in tents to 4x4 overlanders and luxury diesel pushers. It became evident that the nation of campers spans various “ways to get there.” We even noticed van and RV restorers attending Boot Camp since many of the same principles apply. Camping is the common thread that these outdoor enthusiasts have in common. Sharing information about the gear and best practices of RVing, and camping is what being a member of CampNation is all about, no matter how you roll.
Camping Expo USA® is an experience for camping and road trip travel enthusiasts to camp and connect with hundreds of fellow outdoor lovers.
