As to gizmos... I'm still trying to figure out if we want/need an inside table!
After the second time of hauling the table & pedestal we made for it to be portable we've decided we just don't like using it with a u-shape dinette w/flip up tables.

What we can't live w/out is this Very glad we got the inverter & transfer switch.

Everyone I've spoken with who has it, likes the box's extra space and its' rock protecting qualities.

Now, as I continue to pack for the upcoming trip, will try and heed the wise words spoken by many--"less is more"! Peace~

Yes, the box protects from rocks but unfortunately we never take off the box to see what it protected!

An Escape is minimalist as far as trailers go, so I guess we can load them up as much as possible with every conceivable option.. And still make a reasonable claim of minimalist.

I just bought a yeti cooler and while reading the two manuals I was thinking what directions do you need for a cooler?

Like, I wanted a collapsable expensive ladder to attach a tarp to my camper in the rainy season.
What I needed and got was a 25 cent cup hook, screwed into the end of the broom handle. And it works fine putting up the tarp!
Go figure....
