Home from our maiden camping voyage..it wound up ending on a a wet and soggy note…
The best part about coming home is the hot shower and the comfy bed..
The worst part?..is the cleaning up all the stuff..and the mountain of laundry..
This time around since we had to pack up in the rain..that meant we needed to set up the trailer and get everything all dry…
We are very thankful that we are able to park the trailer in the underground parking at our condo and pop it up..we got a few strange looks..I think some people have never seen a tent trailer before?
The one bad thing about having a tent trailer is when you have to put it away wet…shove the sides in, close it up …and hope for the best..
Well..the best it wasn’t…..once we had a closer look..I noticed that the pillows, quilt, the cushions, and all the linen that was stored in one of the lower cabinets needed to be taken out….the condo is now full of all this wet stuff from the trailer…
Within a few days it will all be clean and dry…and we can load the trailer up again..
Just another ‘make-work’ project…all in the name of going camping!!
Our summer vacation is only two months away..and we have a dilemma we need to figure out..
The problem is that when the jeep and tent trailer are hitched together..we can’t open the back tailgate wide enough to let Tucker in and out..
This is okay on a short trip but on a long one it is going to be a problem..
there could be few options..
- remove the spare tire..but then what do we do with it?
- move one of the propane tanks but then securing the other one could be an issue?
- move both propane tanks closer to the trailer and move the battery up to the front
- purchase a longer receiver..but then will cables be long enough to reach?
- the tire crank is also in the way?..
When we went on vacation last year we had Tucker riding up near the front seats..he didn’t like it at all..a long drive with a dog who won’t settle down is no fun…So we know that this option will not work..
..anyone else have an idea that might work..besides leaving the dog at home??
