A few weeks ago, while camping at Lake Mohave, I was looking around camp and noticed all the items we’ve thoughtfully accumulated over the last couple of years that are fun, efficient and space-saving.  All of which contribute to a great overall camping experience.  Truck camper travel teaches you just that, to be extremely thoughtful about each and every item you take along with you...
