Other than the rooftop carrier, I can identify with every word of this post! We had a huge G30 van when the the kids were growing up, so plenty of room to pack inside, but still had to be done in an organized fashion, since we had 4, sometimes 5 kids. BUT, the biggest problem was needing the potty several times a night. I have nearly peed myself so many times, and actually did once. And falling back to sleep ... forget it! I spent every camping trip completely sleep deprived. A bathroom in our pup is the BEST thing ever!! Well, that and air conditioning. Both give me the good night's sleep I need and make my camping experience a million times better!
