I carry with me a couple of Par Electronics EndFDZ wire antennas , a 20 meter and a 40 meter. I also carry a Buddie Pole. Depends on conditions which antenna I use.
I operate either from the tail gate of the pickup or move stuff to the picnic table. I carry a 50Amp hour battery to use for my ham radio and a 65W solar panel to keep both the house battery and the radio battery charged.

I haven't as of yet operated from inside the trailer but it would be no problem to run the coax and battery power through the same port as the 120 power goes through.

Fishing and Smores. Also chess by fire light is fun, sophistication with a primal twist.

Paddling, fly-casting, drowning worms, swimming (in that order!) occasionally fishing

Reading, sleeping, cooking, eating, (not necessarily in that order!)

Like others have stated, Rving our style (glass eggs), is good for our marriage.
