Mike, that's a great picture! Although we do have a bike rack for our bikes, we have so much other stuff back there that I worry about having a mini avalanche every time we open the back doors....guitar, ukelele, small stove, 2 folding chairs. And now our latest addition, a folding party booze cart.
We always leave the bed made...never fold it up. Took a few trips for us to decide that it was too much trouble to fold it up and make it every day. Plus, we were having a hard time accommodating our dogs when we were driving. And didn't have anyplace to lie down and hang out with the dogs. You see who runs the show here, right?!
So now, we have a big blanket that we cover the bed with during the day, and it becomes a gigantic dog bed. At night, we take that blanket off, and put ours on.
The head rests...we also use them at night to keep our pillows from falling into the deep abyss.
The little decorative pillows...we were gonna take them out and leave them at home, but sometimes, when we lounge in the back on the giant dog bed with the dogs, we'll use them for our backs.
