“We both felt that the wide steps and comparatively low bed were better than most slide ons, and certainly made it easier and softer for getting in and out in the middle of the night. We took the camper off the ute and set it up on its legs over the Easter period, which we would tend to do at any time when we were not travelling camping (different campsite very night). I was pleasantly surprised at its stability and also the ease of reversing back under it when it came time to leave.”
