I mainly base camp. Use dirt bikes, mountain bikes, and hiking boots for back country exploring. After years and years with a truck mounted camper, having everything tied to the truck gets a bit annoying. IIRC, had a Wildernest on and off for about 10 years now. So I know the plus and minuses of that style camper. Doing less exploring with the truck now, and more with other means. Really only use the truck to get to the trailheads, and slightly off the beaten path.Ya trade off between maneuverability with the truck mount vs the luxury of hardwalls and more room.
With my Wildernest if you leave the back open, it likes to attract bugs of all sorts...even the occasional humming bird. Do have a separate screen door for it, but never use it. Just have to remember to keep the back closed up...which I never do...So how are people handling bugs with their setups? Tailgate down, upper door up to get in or out (or just upper door up and crawling over the TG). I can see mosquito's being a nuisance anytime the whole setup is opened.
We were just discussing this in a future owner's thread.So how are people handling bugs with their setups? Tailgate down, upper door up to get in or out (or just upper door up and crawling over the TG). I can see mosquito's being a nuisance anytime the whole setup is opened.
Good to know. I've been wondering about how well those work. Do any bugs seem less impacted by it?Just get a thermacell turn it on 20-30 mins before you go to bed and voila zero bugs. I've been doing this in the mtns of BC arou d lakes with my drifter now for the past cpl of trips. I'd love to have a mesh room but that is another thing to carry and setup and remember.
