Why you never leave dirty dishes in the sink in Bear country.

Being that the hole runs almost up to the window, they could add a second door instead--you know, in case of fire or something!

Or use the door to store the food out back so it's easy (easier) access to any passing bears .

Scary. I was actually wondering to what extent our eggs are bear-resistant. Could a bear, say, smell food inside the fridge inside a fiberglass egg from the outside, and tear up the walls to get it?

Hi: If a bear can smell fear...whats a thin layer of fiberglass, a door lock, or a fridge/icebox door going to hide??? I have a regular rider on my bus that has a companion dog who can smell if his master is going to have a stroke... before he has one!!! And we think we're so special!!!

Daniel,

Here's a video about what a determined bear is capable of:

Bear breaks into car

Most campers won't stand up to a determined assault by any determined large creature either two or four-legged. Your trailer is only slightly more secure than the average tent in that it may take a determined creature just a little longer to get in than it would take to get into a tent.

When we were at Yellowstone and I saw where a Grizzly tore off a two inch deep, three foot piece of oak tree bark just to sharpen his/her nails, I figured my Burro door would take about 1 second to rip off.
NO FOOD IN CAMPER!!!! When in bear country.
