  1. Greetings & Introductions
    Hello Honda Element forum. Many camping trips this summer.
  2. Bikin', Campin', Hikin', and Kayakin'
    I just finished making a great module, camping platform for the back of my 2004 Element and wanted to share it with kindred souls. See my YouTube videos at It's not too hard to do it yourself. Hope this helps you on your adventures! Enjoy. If you want measurements let me know.

    Went on a month long camping trip with my uncle and his dog in my 2006 FWD 5-speed Element! We took both rear seats out and loaded it up with gear and had plenty of room for a huge comfy bed for the dog, Lupe. After we got back my odometer sat right at 158,000 miles and the car still feels like...
  4. Do-It-Yourself / Mods
    Hello fellow Element-Lovers! We just uploaded a slideshow of our modifications and travels 12,000 miles around the USA in our Honda Element mini-camper that we made. We thought we'd share here, in case it inspired someone else to do the same. We slept mostly on the side of the road or in...

    Hello, Thought I would share a couple images of the DAC Mid Sized truck tent on my Element. The DAC fit guide indicates that this is the tent to use for the Honda Element but I did see a thread here where someone used the "Explorer 2" tent. Not sure, but I think that is a different tent...
  6. Do-It-Yourself / Mods
    I have been working on a platform bed for my E. This was actually a project I "started" last year, and by "started", I mean I thought a great deal about actually doing it one day. Well now that the warm weather has finally hit the great northeast, I felt a little motivation to recreate some of...

    I just totaled my '05 Element. It broke my heart, but if I was in a compact car I would be dead. I am unemployed, FT student (and old) and can't afford it, but just got myself into a 6 year loan for a 2010 Tango Red Pearl LX AT because I can't imagine life without my E. Now I have to find a...
  8. Racks, Hitches & Towing
    Thanks to all who've providing invaluable insight into the Element's towing performance. I read everything I could find before my wife and I bought a teardrop trailer a few months ago. We'd been towing this 1000 pound "little guy" to local campsites recently with absolutely no issue whatsoever...

    We started with an idea and ended up in places we never dreamed. We made connections with amazing people, shared precious moments with family and friends, and explored each day until the moon came down. We lived the van life in our Honda Element ecamper and counted the miles with no specific...
  10. Bikin', Campin', Hikin', and Kayakin'
    getting ready to take the ladies 2011 out to SD. We were planning on camping for some of the week in the E. I was wanting to know what the Element is considered at a camp sight? RV? What would, say a KOA, charge for an overnight stay? I have read about boondocking and was looking into this...

    My German Shorthaired Pointer (Enzo) and I brought out some blankets, pillows, and munchies to the garage, loaded them up in the beloved E, and set off for our shortest adventure yet... (Insert dramatic pause here.) I opened the garage door, pulled out, closed the garage door and parked at the...

    I am looking into buying either a cabana or a tent attachment for my E. I'm not sure which one I want or what brand to get. I know there are a ton of different things out there and I was just wondering if I could get some advice from you guys! :grin:
  13. Trailers, Campers and Teardrops… oh my!
    Thought it was about time to share the custom trailer that I built for scratch about a year ago specifically for traveling with the element. We normally sleep in the the E or in the roof tent that I also made and do a lot of traveling racing bikes so I made a trailer to support all of the...
  14. Interior
    Hey guys, I have been reading up about taking out the front passenger seat and how that messes up the airbags and stuff. I don't really care about that to much. I'm going to be trying to live in my element, at least during the cold months out of the year so I am planning to take out that front...

    I love my transforming Hillbilly Hummer! Just one more reason for me to really appreciate my girl, Ellie............MY TENT! FINALLY GOT TO SEE WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE! After a looooong wait. (Over a year!!) :grin:

    My wife and I have had our 2006 E for about 2 months, and are wanting to take it camping at the beach. I never realized how difficult it is to track down rules and regulations for where and when you can camp, besides at campgrounds. Does anybody have experience with camping at or on the beach...
  17. Trailers, Campers and Teardrops… oh my!
    I absolutely love my Honda Element. I have always had Honda's since i could drive, and they have never let me down. Camping is my hobby so last year I decided to buy a camper so that I didn't have to sleep on the ground in a tent anymore, so I bought a Little Guy......best choice ever!!! It is...

    I created a new photo album here with a few pics from our trip to the North Coast of CA over the weekend. We towed our trailer (a 1990 Starcraft popup camper) to Gualala with the Element and had a great time, although it was timed right before the huge earthquake/tsunami in Japan. It's...
  19. Trading Post
    We are picking up the new 4Runner tomorrow-- Have some mixed emotions.... mostly excited, but the 4Runner forum isn't nearly as cool as you guys have been.... and I will miss "Freedom". Anyway- I have a used cabana tent and poles for sale. Costs around $250 new.... The tent's zippers and main...
