Donna, that is so true. We sold our 24 foot wild cat last fall. We hauled stuff out of that thing for days! It was absolutely rediculous! So to find a casita, and keep our stuff under control maybe a bit of a challenge! We promised each other we would never put that much stuff in the camper again.

i learned many years ago when our boys were young to pack lightly but wisely. since we were tenting it at that time, less truly was more.

those skills have been perfected over the years, and although our trailer does not look crowded, and our car is not overflowing with "stuff", it is rare that i cannot produce whatever the neighbours have forgotten.

and there is nothing i love more than seeing those amazed faces when they see the size of the trailer that i bring it out from!!!

Hi: Donna D... We must be abnormal then, because after 4 seasons with our 5.0 we still have some empty storage bins!!! I'm not sure there's a next size up, big enough, for some people tho.

We have some empty spaces, too. It's hard not to want to fill them, but as former backpackers, we learned how to truly get by with less "stuff."

It's true, we do tend to grow into whatever space is available. That's why I've stopped buying larger pants.

Theresa, same here. Long distance backpacking years ago taught me how to pack efficiently in tiny spaces.

And I also have everything I need... it's amazing how thinking the use of each item through means you not only don't take anything you don't need... but you always have everything you do need. Without clutter!
