One person Dusty, but I prefer a larger tent two or three person, mainly because I'm 6'4 and like a bit of extra room should it rain. No trailer. I was looking at one in Wally World today for $49 with a waterproof cover and fly. I think I'll keep it simple.

I've been collecting all ideas from this forum for camping on a long trip with the wing. So far I have my GPS (Garmin Street Pilot c550)

I ordered a custom fit SheepSkin cover for the wing,,,,,,,

Just finished ordering a tent, (Eureka Timberline 4 person 2 door)

Now I need a sleeping bag and some sort of mattress. I want to keep it lite and not bulky. What do you guys use?

I bought several of these butane torches, one of which lives in my bike's tool kit, along with some solder, electrical tape, a tiny multimeter, and spare wire, for impromptu on-the-road electrical fixes. It's more than capable of soldering wire (in fact, I often use it in the garage when I don't feel like hauling out my soldering gun & extension cords for a quick fix), it's refillable, adjustable, and hot enough to light pretty well anything on fire (or at least melt it).
The butain lighter is a great ideal. Much better than matches! I'm big in being prepaired,

If you can afford to lay out a grand Honda makes a 2kw generator that weighs maybe 30 pounds. They are very quiet. I am in the process of building a trailer right now. I am a money miser and I like to save on motel bills and I invest my savings into camping equipment. I also carry a small microwave and a portable oven. I also have one of the 12 volt trucker refigerators, but I still have to buy ice daily. If rain is not in the forcast I have a hammock with a cover and mosquito net, but if rain is in the forcast I take time to set up the tent.

If you are going to camp take a trailer and camp in style. I started off with a two man tent tied to the rack and ended up with a Kyham / Annex and 2 x canopies. Include the double inflatable mattress, double duvet, 4 x pillows and with everything else you have a full trailer but a heck of a comfortable night's sleep.

We are the same, why rough it when you can camp in luxury. We do.

I'm not really a camper. So when I do "camp" while on a riding trip, It's just to get a few hrs of shut eye so I can hit the road again in the morning. So, I just lay a foam camping pad beside by bike, on the pavement of a truck stop parking lot and sleep in my Cabala's Snowy Range snowmobile suite. I do carry a cheap Kmart tent and a Walmart sleeping bag with me just in case I decided to hang out in a campground. But I don't use them unless I have to. I just hate pitching a tent and getting a bunch of camping gear out for a few hrs of sleep. If it's raining I sometimes sleep in the trucker's lounge at a truck stop (They've never tried, but I have a CDL so I think it would be pretty hard for them to kick me out. lol)

When I sleep in a parking lot, I choose a place that is well lit, but where I can lay down between my bike and an unmovable object (like a fence) without the light shining directly in my face. And a spot that is as far away from foot and car traffic as I can get, but still lit well.

Not recommending that anyone else do this...just sayin'. No flaming please...just sayin'.
