Well, a couple things on my list:

First, I have had a couple nights where strange, creepy people appear to be prowling around and it is a little weird when there is only a screen. I keep expecting to all of a sudden see someone standing there looking at me. I then realize it is probably a large raccoon or bigfoot and I relax but it does freak me out hearing steps and being ready to scare them before they scare me. Yes, i am weird.

Second, I hate when I camp on weeknights and people are leaving for work at 5am and the headlights shine right in my face.

Third, I hate when I am forced to zip up the ends and remember life before hybrids where the outside was not completely open to me.

These three things I hate are all completely overruled by the awesome, spectacular sounds of nature, great breeze, open feeling and gazing at the stars. I officially retract the three things I hate. I officially like everything. If I was forced to ditch sleeping bags for real bedding I would definitely second that gripe though.

Just one? A single potty break a night would be awesome!

screw the heated mattress, Someone figure out a way to heat that shelf.

Hmmm, nothing covering your legs? LOL We put a small rug on the shelf so the dogs don't scratch it as they go up and down. Also, like someone else, we have a small collapsible cube, footrest, storage box to help the smaller one up and down. But, I do miss the clear plastic "windows" like the pop unit had. When cooler days arrive, if ever, we can at least see our surroundings. I am trying to make some but it has been too hot to work out there.

Oh boy, that top bar is a killer....well, not as bad as leaving a cabinet door open by the stove and meeting up with a corner. I think it would have been better they open side ways and then only smash your forehead straight on!
