I thought I would share our first experience out with our new TC. We loaded up Friday afternoon and headed out to North Idaho to go out and do some trail riding. We had the camper and trailer all loaded in a little over an hour and off we went. We didn't really know where we were goingor where we were going to camp so we kind of "winged" it. Here is the pick of first driving into our camp spot...

Here is another pic (my wife got picture happy)

I didn't buy a Grill yet because I really couldn't find what I was looking for in town and everything I found was to large to fit in the compartment I want it to fit in. So after asking questions on this forum and looking around on the net for what I want and needed I found THIS. Watch the video, I think it will fit what we're looking for excatly. I bought ours on Amazon for $197.00 shipped to my door. Oh, let me get back to the subject now. Here is a pick of me reading instructions, drinking a Barley Pop to put together our cheap grill just to get by on....

Here is my son waiting for me to go riding....

And now I'm finally up and going getting the bikes ready....

This is what the camp site looked like....

We had a wonderful time with perfect weather. It was in the low 40*s at night and mid 60*s during the day. All the Fall colors are starting to come out and the air was nice and crisp. We're looking forward to our next adventure......

Just remember, this was THE BEST Truck Camping trip you've EVER been on! (Until the next one of course; and they just get better and better!)

Looks like you had it under control. Sure beats a tent, doesn't it?
