It's been a while. In the meantime one of the biggest changes we've made is to continue with the idea of making this trailer more convenient for camping "non-rustic". (We have the Shasta Compact for rustic camping)
We removed the gas stove and used the area to install a microwave. We also purchased a new Coleman gas stove with grill/griddle and lock it in place with a simple bungie cord while traveling. The gas line has been capped off so we can still use the gas light if needed and of course we also still have 12 volt/converter availability.
This has made our trailer very convenient when camping anywhere where electric is available;)
