I sorted out WTH I couldn't place any equipment in my camp! (See link below.)
I thought I had tried everything and this is what finally helped my game work again:
Go sign on the portal and go to the City to see if you crash or loaded good.
Then when this other equipment comes out of nowhere to block you, put it in the backpack and go to the city again.
Now that's clear, place the new purchase and go to city again. Still loading right or not, replace the other equipment where you had it and lock it in by going to the city again. Now with a new piece sorted in BOTH full camps, I'll give it a rest to dig. See https://prnt.sc/1x668vv
