We use a 12x12 EZ up and always carry a large tarp. Im never embarassed over the tarp when its poring down rain and we have a huge dry area. I just hang out side watching every one else getting soaked or sitting in trucks or cars. The tarp is also great for a wind block, we get some pretty good winds here in the sierras.
Bought a new stainless steel coffee pot for it and tried it out with a afternoon pot of decaf. Just getting ready for opening day

If staying one night camper stays on if staying two or more nights at the same camp site camper comes off. We usually leave stuff back at camp put away. If you cant afford to lose it dont leave it, and look at your suroundings to get a good feel.
I have a rear plug and love it. I have nothing haning down to hang up. I do tow all the time and have a dual plug set up on the truck. As for the full length of the truck for the 12v power no problem there charges just fine. Plus most of us have solar. When I unload I unplug when taking off tie downs and simply pull away, dont have to pull forward a little and get out to unplug from the front. Also when leaving the camper on the truck its a easy way to disconect to seperate the truck and the campers 12v systems,(I know you can put on a isolater). I do think the best enhancement would be a plugin eather or Type thing to please the old school and the new school.
