Although this is an old thread, I'll toss in my 2 cents.
I'm pretty sure I'd need a trailer for mc camping. I've done a LOT of airplane camping and it looks like a mc trailer will haul about what a small airplane does.

1. Modestly priced biggest tent you can haul (no need to overspend here)
2. Air mattress (critical)
3. Propane stove (size optional)
4. Cooking/eating utensils
5. Cooler w/ ice to keep food in
6. Camp chair
7. Ground tarp (handy for lots of things)
8. Light source (lantern, flashlight, etc.)
9. Roll-up camping table (nice to have when no picnic table at site)
10. Towel, wash cloth, soap, personal toiletries
11. Enough underwear for days anticipated, extra jeans, Tshirts, etc.
12. First aid kit
13. Container of water
14. And, most importantly, whatever else you personally need to make the
experience more enjoyable!

As you may have guessed by now...I'm not into minimalist camping at my age. It's all about comfort and convenience

I've been thinking about getting one for hot coffee in the mornings but $100. just to boil some water is pretty expensive.
I would like to find out more about them before spending the $$$.
I do have a JetBoil..got it as a B-day present from my daughter. It will boil the water for coffee in about 2 minutes (I use Starbuck VIA's). Great little unit. The unit I have actually works as a french press also...just need to add coffee grounds.

I use a Jetboil for quick stops to brew coffee while at a rest stop. I also use it to boil water for freeze dried food. I haul along freeze dried meals in case I arrive late at the camp site and don't want to cook a full meal. In two minutes, it will boil my water, I add it to the freeze dried food container and while I am setting camp, the food is "cooking" and I can then eat my dinner.

I refuse to pay $3.00 for a cup of crappy coffee. Starbucks, Melita single cup filter and fresh ground coffee makes the best coffee. I do have the jeb boil french press accessory, but it makes a mess of my Jet Boil cup.

Do you want a nice campgrounds in the U.P. of Michigan?
I had the chance to work on a Wing for the owner and after putting me up in the cabin for a week and dealing with me, I told him I would tell the members of this forum about the campgrounds and keeping my promise to him I have listed him here. You can bring RVs, pop-ups and tents, the grounds are immaculate and they work very hard and keeping the place nice. They renovated the bathrooms and putting a new roof on the cabin.
It's Coyote Campgrounds near Stephenson MI, it's quiet and peaceful and they'll be having a July 4th celebration for those camping here. Sandy & Orvis Zimmerman are nice people and their son Mark. They helped me and so I am trying to help them for their kindness and generosity.

Midwing,that's how the wife and I roll!Got a five person tet and we carry about everything one could need inside our MC cargo trailer.Coleman stove,Mr.Coffee coffee maker,Fan forced electric heater,12"fan,2 canvas folding chairs,etc.We can carry enough clothing to go a week before washing.We pack for hot and cold too.We have had motorhomes,pull type campers,and pop-ups,but MC pulling a trailer HAS to be about the most economical way to travel there is! It is Sooooo cheap this way.If the weather gets too bad,or it's gonna be 105*,we will just get a room. I also stress....IF you are tent camping,and sleeping on the ground,you HAVE to try a THERMAREST LUXURY XL SLEEPING PAD. I promise...you will NOT wake-up and have sore hip or shoulder bones!!!! Well worth every penny they charge for them.


BTW,inside the trailer is a lowered place to carry a spare tire.We don't carry a spre,but we carry a FULL size Coleman Xtreme cooler that lowers into the recessed tire area,allowing it to fit inside.That works PERFECT for when camping with the bears!!!! We don't have to move our food,or tie the cooler up in a tree.People freak out when they see what all we carry.
