    Do you like using a fridge more than using coolers?

    We use our fridge all of the time. In fact, we have the reusable ice packs we use for the drinks in the cooler. I have enough of them that we put half of them in the cooler and the other half are in the pups freezer section so we can rotate them in and out of the cooler.

    Highwall vs Not Highwall

    We have a Flagstaff highwall and love it. We use a F150 Supercrew with a tow package to pull it. I think it takes less time to set up than a standard pup, just because you don't need to set up the kitchen. No cabinets to raise.
