Here, here!

We had the Interstate first, our foundling, black lab mix Miss Lily second.

It was the first home with us she ever knew, and we couldn't conceive of travel without her.

We love her dearly and clean up after her without a second thought.

Different strokes for different folks.

Your rig will get dirty, ya know, and will get scratched, rock-dinged, etc.

All indications of it's intended purpose.

It's meant to be enjoyed, so get out there!

Your lab will love you (more) for it.

Central vac??

Saw a Honda commercial this am for a van-of-some-sort, with a small central vac housed in the driver's side door.

Now that is a spot where a small system such as this could go.....probably a removable receptacle in there.

We store a lot of odd things in Doug's door pocket, such as disposable gloves for dumping, as it is a good-sized pocket with a door.......

We love having an Interstate that is more a luxury camper van, without the extra seats, second television, bells and whistles of various sorts.

However!, this might be a really great, space-efficient option!!

Found these yesterday at Walmart, for the bargain price of $1.99 each, I believe.

They are suction-cup holders for Christmas Wreaths, also perfect for extra hangers in the bathroom, which is where we put ours. The suction cups are strong and sturdy, and the hook rotates to lay flat if preferred.

Could also use these on your exterior, to hold a water hose off the ground.

Saw one of these in use when camping with friends a couple of months ago. Much higher heat than what we have with the propane burners, and perfect for cooking outside.

Had to have it. Ordered it from amazon today.

Small, very compact, highly efficient, cute little carrying case.....and inexpensive. What's not to love.

Oh, fer cute!

A mountain shop like REI will also have very small compact one-burner stoves designed for backpackers.

I have seen those in catalogs, really liked the looks and performance of this one. The little butane tank it runs off of also lasts a long time.

And, it has that cute and compact carry case.

I have the perfect place to stash it.

We found one of these at a marina store during this last trip, and it is amazing.

About the size of a large highlighter/magic marker, with a magnetic swivel clip and, seriously folks, you could land a plane with this item.

Have one permanently ensconced in a pen slot in the cab commander by the door (next to the multi-tool) and have just purchased another for our work-in-progress bug-out bag.

Takes 3 AAA batteries, under $10.

Thanks for the tip. This light has great reviews on Amazon. I just ordered six of them so that I will have some stocking stuffers for the boys. They are $8.75 on Amazon Prime with free shipping.

Great!

We love indoctrinating our grands with handy, useful, non-electronic gadgets. The boys already have their own mini multi-tools and good pocket knives.
