So, I did my first overnight camping in January, and I gotta say... I liked it. OK... so I cheated a little. The camper is already in place down on my lake lot, and it was a 50 degree day. But the night time got down to 30. My original plan was to turtle up, but I figured I would try using the bunk.
First off, I gotta say that I simply don't understand people who view it as a 'chore' or 'hassle' to use the bunks in a hybrid, even for a single night en route. It literally took me 2 minutes to deploy the bunk. flip 2 latches, drop the door, insert the shepherds pole, unfold the mattress and toss on the pillows and blankets. Took about the same to put it up in the morning.
I have an little electric forced air heater that I keep in the camper. That and the electric mattress kept it reasonably comfy. I put the heater on the shelf under the TV, blowing into the bunk and closed the curtains over the rest of the opening. Not to say it wasn't a bit chilly in the rest of the camper but not terrible. My buddy ran the propane main furnace in his, and he said it was very pleasant in his. If I do it again that cold, I will probably kick on the furnace as well.
So... was it worth it? Well, I got to ride my UTV around in the woods a bunch, met a few new people at the lake, had a few rum and cokes, and got to take this picture, so you decide...
