  1. Air mattress in CR-V

    Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2008-2012) CR-V
    Hello all! I could not find exactly the answers I needed for this so I am making this post. I just acquired a 2009 CR-V EX and my husband and I want to camp sleeping in our CR-V (I take astrophotography!). I am 5'4 and he is 5'8, both pretty skinny! We want to know if it is possible at all...
  2. Roof Top Tent on a 2018 EX?

    Racks, Hitches, & Towing
    I'm looking for my next car, and the CR-V is currently at the top of the list. My question is has anyone used a Roof Top Tent like the Tepui, Yakima Skyrise, or iKamper on theirs? I see that in the "Build and Price" tool I can add roof rack cross bars. Would those be sufficient to hold a roof...

  5. Gen 1 Solo Camping Setup

    Biking, Camping, Hiking, & Kayaking
    I have been looking at a Gen 1 CRV as a possible solo camper for dispersed camping in the low Rockies. I would like to be able to sleep in the vehicle and have read the other threads in this regard. The main issue if you do not have the EX flat folding seats option seems to be cargo length. I...
  6. Took My 16 CRV camping this weekend

    Gen 4: 2012-2016 (UK 2012-2017) CR-V
    Lots of fun but sorry no pics, promised the wife I'd shut my phone off. Went up to the mountains in Helen, Ga lots of gravel and a couple streams I drove over. And yes its a FWD. Very satisfied on how my little CRV performed. I got pasted by a few Wranglers and there was a Forester driving...
  7. Tent cot on the roof?

    Biking, Camping, Hiking, & Kayaking
    I have a 2000 Honda CR-V, with a naked roof apparently (no rails) and I would love to put a double tent cot on the roof for camping. Obvious it couldn't stay up there for driving, but the views from that high would be nice. I found the Kamp-Rite tent cot and thought maybe if I put a foam tube...
  8. New CRV owner here :)

    Greetings & Introductions
    Hey everyone, my name is Ryan and I just bought a 2010 CR-V with roof rack and hitch. Before this I owned a 2000 Audi A6 wagon (just blew the tranny) and am looking forward to having something more reliable that will still give me lots of room for activities :D Living in New England I wouldn't...

    Biking, Camping, Hiking, & Kayaking
    Hitting the Road Hi! So possibly a few people have come across my previous thread regarding my sleeping platform build and other camping related changes I have made to my '99 CR-V. Well, after planning the trip since this past spring it is finally time to hit the road! Having spent about 2...

    Accessories
    Anyone have one of these? How is the quality and construction and store-ability? OEM or third party, which is best? :) Don

  12. Why does battery drain if tailgate is open when camping?

    Problems & Issues
    Reading the installation instructions for the Honda tent, it says "NOTE: Leaving the tailgate open for an extended amount of time will drain the battery". We are seriously considering to buy the tent, as camping time is just around the corner, and using the seats as additional bed space. How do...
  13. Camping

    Off The Beaten Path
    Well, its not quite wheeling the V, but camping a lot of time involves driving off the paved roads. So I am going to post in this sections. I have been on a kick about making my own camping gear lately. I made a backpacking stove last night (I'll take some photos tonight and try to post them...

  15. Winter Camping with the V

    Biking, Camping, Hiking, & Kayaking
    We took our 08 V winter camping last weekend to Findley St Park in Northern Ohio. The low ground clearance was an issue since they had around 24-30+ inches of snow on the roads and they were not plowed. Only got stuck once due to clearance issues. Plenty of room inside to take bags, tents and...

My wife and I saw this on the EOC forum. I thought it was so interesting that I would share it with you too...
  17. So-Ill Throw Down Camping (lota pix)

    Biking, Camping, Hiking, & Kayaking
    The weekend before last I took my first “real” camping trip since I purchased my CR-V at the beginning of March this year. I have taken it on easy trips, where I didn’t really have to drive anywhere that is unreachable by car. This was different. We had to drive on gravel roads for a while...

    Okay, we have a tentative camping trip planned for this fall at Starved Rock for late October (or November) but I need to know who is interested and what dates work. I'm gone the first weekend in Nov. since I'll be attending SEMA. This could be a FUN, FUN weekend for many. Colin (from Element...
  19. Illinois camping meet?

    Midwest & Heartland Owners
    Thinking about planning a small camping meet this fall for Element, CR-V and Ridgeline. Not sure of a location yet, but was thinking either eastern Illinois area or up north a bit. For those of you in the south, I love Grafton and the whole Pere Marquette area too. Any interest?
