When I first bought my popup, I didn't think I would use the stove inside for hardly anything. Now.....well, I make good use of it. Most of the time where I camp, there are no picnic tables so outdoor cooking would include a table, a stove, extra propane, etc. Then I would have to haul all of the utensils and cookware from the camper to the cooking area. Then when done having to return it all and put away the stove, wipe down the table, etc. As a result, I have slowly started cooking more and more inside. I find it VERY convenient. As to the heater, with lows in the 20's to 40's, I love my heater!! I LOVE having coffee in a nice warm area while waiting for everyone else to wake up. My sink and I have a love/hate relationship. I love it when it is hooked up via a hose (but this is rare). I like it when you have to pump it for brushing teeth. When not hooked up to a hose, I hate it for washing hands as you have to pump it while trying to rinse your hands. Mostly we use it to hold the dishpan while we do dishes and then a good hand washing before throwing out the water. As to space to cook/prep. I use the table extensively and have found little niches for most other things. I have a cutting board I put over the sink if I need additional counter space. Like gladecreekwy, I live in WY just a little further away from bear central (Yellowstone). I would agree, a clean camp goes a LONG way for not having issues with wildlife. As for smells, they will smell your bacon whether you cook it inside or outside. Personally, I usually cook it outside (to avoid splatter issues). However, when it was in the 30's with the wind howling, you bet I cooked it (carefully) inside! I think a lot of where you cook has to do with your environment (temperatures and weather) and what you enjoy. Personally, I don't enjoy dirt in my food (carried by the wind). AC - while I had it - was nice - when electrical hookups were available (maybe 1 time in 10). However, when my AC quit working, I took it out. It was too large, not property mounted, causing the roof to sag, water to pool and the roof to leak. I have replaced it with a vent with a fan and only miss it about 1 trip in 20. Refrigerator - Love it on electricity. However, again, that is rare. Mostly I keep drinks in it and food that will be eaten that day or that doesn't require consistent colder temps. I use an indoor/outdoor thermometer to watch the temps-it is close to freezing in the morning and close to 45-50 in the afternoon sun of the summer.
