Another one that is really slick is the Anderson leveler. No cranking required. Just pull up or back onto it until level, tap in the chock, unhitch, then level front to back. Bada-Bing!

6#'s vs 18#'s. Smaller, cheaper, and if you have a second person watching the level as you pull up on it, it's a "once off".

Get an Anderson leveler and simplify the side to side leveling. Just set it under the low side tire and drive backwards or forward until it is level, get out and shove the wedge under it and you're finished after you block the other tire. Use the tongue jack to level front to rear.

Well glad you two are having a celebratory moment! Everytime you take it out or organize it, you'll feel joy with what you discover!

As for glamping, it works best with organizational systems and using double duty/multifunctional items. I've had mine a few years now and have had fun making it cozy and functional. Nothing more satisfying than to have someone peek inside and say "oh wow". Haha

Enjoy! Post photos and have fun!

( I said I am new at this) the screw wont line up with the hole in the front pop up part.. any tips?
I noticed this was also part of this initial post, which recently happened to us during the setup. We over extended the top and crossed the sides during setup. We had a large screw that now would not fit into the hole and was holding the side wall from closing. We eventually removed the screw to close the side and haven't put screw back yet. It was most difficult to remove and I can only imagine it not being easy to put back. I wonder how important this large screw above the water heater on the side of the unit is ?

I believe the part is designed to add stability during high wind. So i'd put it back in. If it doesn't quite fit into the side panel, adjust the camper with the front, street side stabilizer. At least that's what I have done. The miss-alignment seems to come and go for me.

As Tom said, that is the wind bolt. You'll want to put that back in place.
