X3.. Not just for filling the tank.. You would be surprised how many jams you can get yourself out of from the benevolence of others when there is a 6 pack on ice. For best results.. leave the cooler lid open, in plain sight, and within 4 feet of the problem area.

On the serious side. Just identifying and making sure your "necessary" comforts are being met will keep you pretty well squared away. If you're not going to sleep comfortably, get a new mattress, if the water pressure is low, get an oxygenectics, if your napping perch leaves your back sore, buy a gravity chair.

Once you've had a decent nap, hot shower and a good nights sleep.. the fun factor will remain premium. Your necessary comforts may vary, but if they aren't met... it's doesn't matter what you buy or build... it can suck the joy right out of it all.

Gaspeddler, I like the pic. where do you camp?......

We have a new Roo 21SS, our 7th camper......What is "new" for replacing the end queen size mattress? We went on our first "shake down" camping trip for four nights and well........the mattress's still are bad. Was toying with the idea of buying a "topper" for it.....Ideas??

Thanks,

Jim

Now that's the best answer I've seen so far! I feel the same way about my DH, especially since I would never drive the trailer myself, lol!
