    I think it's a little silly to think a travel trailer is any safer than a pop-up when it comes to storing food inside. You really think a little 1/16" plastic skin is going to keep out a bear any moreso than canvas?

    [QUOTE="Toedtoes, post: 1259873, member: 102687

    Hey, maybe we can develop this "bear friendly fridge" system. Build a basic fridge box with no shelves, etc., then have a removable inside. That way you could simply grab the inside box and move it to the bear box...[/QUOTE]
    After you are finished changing the subject are you willing to admit that you were wrong?

    Settle down. When I hear back from Yellowstone, I will respond appropriately.

    As Yosemite's rules don't allow any food storage in vehicles, they are a bit different than other campgrounds.

    Our fridge is pretty useless. I would keep food in the fridge but the wife wont let me.

    It makes no difference what Yellowstone says. You have been clearly shown that which you have been denying.

    Not going to argue with you. I will respond when I hear back from Yellowstone.

    Isn't this the point of having a PUP to enjoy the amenities of a camper to make life easier. We cook and store food then I don't worry about the smells or grease that's why man made Fantstic

    Just that it is NOT worth my time using fantastic after every interior cooking. Got NO time for that. I am already too busy cleaning the grill outside.

    You are allowed to store food in the fridge of your camper in Yellowstone campgrounds. Hope that ends the debate

    What I was saying? All I saw was you two debating and the question was about food storage in fridges in Yellowstone. All due respect but your attitude on this forum sucks. Debate is fine but you seem determined to argue with anyone you disagree with.

    I wasn't talking to you. Sorry if the post got sequenced wrong. If you are going to make such a harsh comment maybe it would have been fair if you read the entire thread on the subject.

    I did. And this thread started after you argued with me about food in campers.

    No, I don’t care for your condescending tone. Big difference.

    Cook in pup is ok so you say. Too bad mice love those stinky cushions, tent screens, and vinyl.

    Its not a problem - as they do have the metal bear lockers (and at other parks where bears are a problem, including national forests). Now if they had no lockers, the bears would be tearing up your trailer and tow vehicle.

    I guess you couldn’t find an example. I went back and reviewed the entire thread and I can’t find where I directly responded to you at all.
    If I missed it show me.
