    We use a tarp with a screen room outside. Tons of room, and it all rolls into two bags...

    Wow, that's pretty cool BigBaron, where did you get that / who is the mfr? I don't believe I have seen anything like that.

    They are all over Korea. They are Korean-made by many different companies. Kovea has a bunch to look at. We got this one, ABCamp, because the interior height is higher than the others, and the tarp is a good 6" above the screen room, which is important when it rains or snows.

    When we go nuts, we put two or more together... This is without the screen rooms.
    We rarely stay inside the trailer, so I know this would be a great solution for a big family like Mipeacedude.
    The ONLY reason we got a bigger trailer is because the beds were too small in our 8-footer.

    Thanks, I'll check out Kovea when on a computer, their website is not coming up on my iPad. I like to see equipment from other countries. I like this design. Looks like it could take some wind.

    There is a drive-in theatre in Door County, WI. There is no place finer in all of Wisconsin to camp in the dog days of summer. Pulling into the CG at 2am after a surprise double feature with 4 confused half-sleeping little ones is probably frowned upon, but we're makin memories here.

    When we camped with 4 of the 5 kids (and an extra or two) our Pup was for us, and we'd use it to pack tents for the kids. Of course they were 15 or older.

    Now, no kids at home, just the wife and I and two pupsters (115lb malamute and a 60lb husky) and we've gone to a Suburban and a 19'TT. It's heaven and we've not even made it to a campground yet!
    Soon...10 days..
