Thats the beauty of this Tim, for just a day or two you only open up the clamshell and it takes 3 minutes. I wouldnt do the awning unles I was going to be someplace several days. You dont have to setup the kitchen either.

I may not add the walls when camping, but wanted to see what it looked like.

Or did you think this was too big for a day or two?

LOL! You are approaching WilderNest deployment speed. I use the park-to-beer time to index camping solutions and you are getting dangerously close to tempting me at 3 minutes. :-) I've always thought Kimberlys are pretty cool since seeing them in old Australian 4WD Monthly rags. Neat.

Best part of the KK is that there is a real floor to step out of bed onto. This alone I think makes a huge difference. Even though you step out of bed into the pickup bed of the WilderNest, having it flat, up off the mud and sand with a small rug and a little chair to put on your shoes to take a leak at 2AM is super nice.

Maybe. Until it rains. You should know this from Missouri, being stuck in a tent playing solitaire in the rain plainly stinks. You appreciate being able to stand up, maybe put up a small table and make a cup of soup or tea even if it's only a weekend.

They were in the slide out drawer under the bed. Could have put them in the big box as well. They take less room then I would have thought. If you not going to use the walls, you can just leave them at home.

Looks like a shanty town in your back yard.

Very cool camper, Ken. At this stage in my life, though, the first camper you owned is the one that I want.

That is better for small kids and kerrie would like the heat. Always warm no matter how cold outside.

Hants has a Diesel heater in his KK and I am installing a propane setup. I don't like freezing my ass of either even if I can stay warm in the sleeping bag. That Mr Buddy Heater in Moab made it nice and warm even when waking up to snow and ice

No just the flip top is fine. I but when you have it all why not use it all
and I doubt you'll ever use side walls. Unless it's hella windy or rainy. Butthen again just add one side. I still like it. But like matt Said it dose look like a shanty town when all did up. Lol
