Well Steve, Done my duty to the outside in a big way. Now when mama is along it's a little different. Still have to make her coffee to get her out of bed in the morning either way. My bones don't get up off the ground as easy as they use to. I still like a good tent........well........

I really liked the Jayco Baja. It sleeps uop to 7. It has bigger tires and will go more places than a standard pu, but is made of particle boards held together by staples like the rest

A major reason I bought this one was I could stock the fridge and get to almost all the storage cupboards while the top was still down. I also liked the front storage box

It was nice when the kids were younger as Sarah would sit at the kitchen table doing her homework inside

This is great guys, thanks. I too was bummed to read that cheeseman doesn't sleep in a bear grylls lean-to at night either. :sad:

This info is good. I have an ARB fridge so that is done. We might not always camp in Colorado so I think the A/C is still on the table as is the heat. The indoor can is a HUGE winner for my gals... probably gotta stay on the list.

We just spent a week in a 20'+ Roo hard sided (with bed flip outs) camping. It was really nice to be able to live a little "inside" the trailer verses my current setup that allows you to live "around" the trailer.

The search is on... time to start looking at a few.

as your kids get older, the ARB fridge may not cut it. If you can afford it, I would get one with a fridge. Even in my current Kimberley, I have a fridge and then one in the truck

Agreed on the 2nd fridge, but why dedicate it to the camper? here Drew http://boulder.craigslist.org/app/3189851917.html
