very easy to set up.10 min by yourself after you do it once and see how it all goes together.I only got to use it a couple times because I just got it last year but seem solid if set up properly.Great investment for sure

I have a bay Westy kit in the back of my panel. Then I just use an old coleman ice box fridge and stove. All I could add for my purposes is a side tent or awning for bad weather.

I don't have any pics of my setup. Its pretty simple. I like to pack minimaly so I can spend the camp trip relaxed rather than spending most of the time packing and unpacking.

Z bed, cooler, stove, water jug, camp chairs, cookware and maybe an ez up canopy to keep the sun or rain off. I keep as much as I can in a tote so its packed and ready to go all the time. And most important, a roll of toilet paper.

I often take both rigs when I take the family camping... I like the privacy that the Westy offers when sleeping with the Woman. Wink Without reservation!!
