The best feature for me is the fact it's fiberglass! No more tents, thank you. I can camp without checking first to see what the weather "might" do and then making a decision if I want to go. It no longer matters. I can be warm and dry and will stay that way.

For me it has turned out to be the closet. It holds bulky items like my small wet/dry vac. and extra boots. It also holds a set of hanging shelves for clothes and has a permanent place for my snowmobile suit and coveralls that are for emergencies. All nicely stored out of the way.

I don't know if i can pick just one thing...

Being a yukoner, I enjoy being bear proof. however now that i live on the south shore of nova scotia, you are apparently lucky to see a bear in your lifetime.

given that, I enjoy being warm and dry all the time, I like cards on the table and 'wobbly pops' at night, and the outside light...plus camp neighbor envy is always nice...

3-way fridge changed my life - house power the night before we leave, 12volt on the road, and propane in the woods. no more ice cubes floating around a cooler.

BUT I think the thing i love the most about My boler over a tent, STANDING UP. it's the little things you take for granted, like putting on a pair of jeans in the morning when you can actually stand up completely.

Hmmm...so many things, but foremost would be staying dry. Hiking in the rain is much more fun when you know a cozy dry egg awaits you.
Standing up is nice too. With the years has come morning creakiness, which shakes off more readily when you can fall out of bed into a standing position
And being turn key ready, whether it's for a quick stop on the way, or arriving to camp at night...no set up!!
I haven't completely given up my tent, but lately I thought I heard it singing that mop song. You know the one...."Don't you want me baby"

The opportunity to simply ask, "Where are we going this summer?" I am not a tent camper, so before we got the UHaul (or actually the previous Burro) , it was a question of whether or not we could afford all the hotel rooms, usually not. Now, since I am a glamper, it is a question of where the campgrounds that have electrical hookups are (and preferably quiet, clean, and near antique stores).

And having the hubby take over the cooking for a couple of weeks on his propane stove!

When I went back to tent camping a few years before getting my egg, I bought a tent I could stand up in... they are out there now, not huge and heavy, and SO much nicer. I had an airbed and standing room. Not that I want to go back to a tent, but standing up is available in tents.
