Jason,

Any chances of posting some photos of your setup and perhaps people can make some suggestions, or throw up what they think is the bits on their CT they couldn't do without.

For me its probalby the tool box. It justs seems I can put alot of stuff in their, camp oven, gas lights, tools, pegs ropes etc and get to everything pretty quick. And it doesn't take up valuable space in the trailer which we really need these days. Hmm remember the days when I could get everything into the boot of my old falcon.

Anyhiw just a suggestion.

I am always looking at ways of setting/packing up quickly especially as we have a few trips planned where we are on the move. So always on the lookout for some nifty ideas if anyone has any suggestions. Got the bunk beds one which was good.

we got to alot of free camping grounds when we go away and teh toilets at these grounds (if they have them) are just drop boxes that absolutly STINK, and one of our group has a block down at carlisle river in vic that has nothing there so i thought i would make a camp Dagnabbit's to take along. it does weight a fiar bit but it beats sqwatting and trying to take a dump, especially after a nigth on the turps.
