You have my sympathy. Wet stuff is one of the reasons I don't camp in the Pacific NorthWET during the cold, wet winter months. It's hard to dry out stuff on the lawn when it's a swimming pool!

It dried pretty easily, but, dang---the leaves kept falling and blowing all over!

Dan,

See that Honda Element in the picture? Although still my first love, it was retired as tow vehicle and replaced with Honda Ridgeline truck. We pack the back of that truck FULL!

hehe actually Doug I only wonder about the gas issue and the parking issues of living in the city with a big truck.....

My little city and tow friendly gas saving wagon handled all my wet gear nicely with plenty of room to spare on Sunday. Acually the only wet gear I had to deal with was the outside rug - it needed a bath when it got home - not sure if that was due to the rain or too much wine and other beverages spilled on it on Friday and Saturday night! The awning and party tent where dry by the time I put them away - everything that was under the tent and inside the trailer stayed nice and dry.

When I first read this post I couldn't figure out the exact problem.

For those of us who travel continuously, without drying options, the solution is simple. We don't carry all the outdoor stuff that gets wet. Everything just have to have a place inside the trailer or inside the tow vehicle.

Well maybe part of the issue is having a 13'er. It's so small for 2 people, the screen room and stuff become more important. Need a 16 or 17!

That's all said with tongue in cheek, though. I know it's more a matter of camping style. Some folks just enjoy having that extra outdoor stuff, some don't, and that's ok either way. My style generally involves many miles and frequent moves with short stays, so I avoid items that require external setup. For multiple day stays in one location, those items can be a nice enhancement.

Long Trips

I know it's more a matter of camping style. Some folks just enjoy having that extra outdoor stuff, some don't....

In 2-300 days of camping this year we end up with both long and short stays; we will stay a day, a week or a month depending on... We figure that on average we'll drive 30 miles a day, normally driving 150 miles every 5 days or so. We try to have a 10 minute setup routine, outside stuff amounts to two chairs and a little table.

We had lunch with budding RVers yesterday and the wife asked me how we carry four season clothing when we're gone 10-11 months. We don't, we layer. Looking at her earings I told her that when traveling you have to choose which earings to take, Ginny normally takes 5 pair, she's uping it to 6 this year for 11 months.

We have the rule that if you don't use it it doesn't come next year. Of course that means that the last couple weeks Ginny is wearing things that have not seen the light of day for the previous 11 months. Her goal when packing is to fill the space given to her, mine is to have easy access to my stuff.


We do not store anything in the trailer like coolers, generators or screen rooms. We try to keep it really simple. We do try to create more storage space in our trailer than a typical trailer because of the way we travel and the time we're gone.
