This thread is interesting in tht it shows all the different modus operandi's over the years!
These days I'm mostly in swags as love the simplicity / speed.
If it's just me, or the wife and I , or son and I for a single night , then a single queen swag.
If it's the son and I for a couple of nights, i'll give him his own Queen swag so we can get more sleep.
If its the son, wife, daughter and I then boys in one, girls in the other.
Mostly I try to avoid taking lots of cooking gear, other than camp oven or toasties on the fire, and running a 75L true dual zone fridge to cart it all.
I don't run a slide, cage, or bag - as I still want maximum tray space and always found myself disgruntled at how much space gets consumed with installation of such.
On much longer trips we deploy an RV5 with front room + two queen swags. Typically the girls and gear goes into the RV5, and the boys have a queen swag each. Lots of room for good nights sleep.
That said, the setup and take down of RV5 + front room setup and everything that goes with it, is a bit of a pain in the butt. Makes me yearn for a caravan. BUT, the rub is that 80% of my camping is to locations where you basically can't get to with a van (or i dont wnat to)... its only long trips where we base in a town. So, I don't know.
