I was training this last week at a different facility than I usually stay at.  Instead of making the company pay for a hotel I decided to "camp out" in my wagon!  Anybody else like to camp in their wagon? Smile

I've always wanted to. Always keep a sleeping bag / thermal blanket in it for emergencies. I almost slept in it back in 2011, after driving for fifteen hours, but my mom would not let me pull off at a gas station in Tennessee at 2 A.M. Ended up at a $40 motel.

The company is paying for a motel? That's a no brainer......I would not be sleeping in the back of a car.

I used to sleep in my wagon (1st RMW) when I traveled from Louisville - Chapel Hill for baroque cello lessons once a month.  Did that for about 6 months. I only had money for food and gas but was so thankful to have my wagon! It does make a good single sleeper with the right setup.  My favorite is laying on your back and watching the rain hit the vista glass...lulls you right to sleep.  Lol  

But man...your company should be paying for a hotel in your case! Lawd!

My former neighbor who bought one of my wagons is currently living out of it in Wal-Mart's parking lot while Social Security keeps stalling on his disability case.... He bought it with the idea of having somewhere to stay no matter what....

Man, hopefully your old wagon had tinted windows, Don! Wink   That doesn't sound like fun, hope his disability comes through for him!  I pretty much opted for the back of the wagon instead of driving an hour each way to the hotel every day/night after a 12 hour shift.  Plus it wasn't too bad, I had a bathroom, shower, food and coffee pot 20ft away Cool

My house has a second garage with a half bath and three ton heat/air.... Could wagon or van camp in there easily if I ever had to rent my house out...

I haven't camped out of it, but I have no doubt it would be great to sleep in, because of *ahem* other things than may or may not have happened in the wagon. Two years in a row I've worked at Country Concert in Ft. Loramie, OH and last year my friend that works it with me and I decided we were going to stay out there, this year we're saying the same thing. One nice thing about these wagons too is we can tow pretty well too.

Nice! I've crashed in my wagon many times after a long night of drinking! drunken I sure wish I'd of had a wagon when I was younger and always chasing women around at music festivals and campouts;)
PS the full sized blow up mattress is a must if you like being able to walk after sleeping in the back-

for the past several years ive gone to the rolex 24 hr and to the Sebring 12 race (to watch the C7R Corvettes win) and i slept in my wagon. so much easier than a tent etc. the folks i meet up with have all the camping equipment,etc so its easy for me to be self contained,off the ground at nite,dry etc.after a few adult beverages all day its comfy enuf.just have to remember to not sit up to quick! if all else fails the front seat backs really recline along way too. ZZZZ

I,ve napped in the back of a couple of my wagons,. usually on cross country trips, but definitely need to stop for a shower before the second night,.and remembering to have something to drink is a good idea ,.montana in the summertime can get uncomfy, even at night,.

I slept in the back of my Olds when I went to the 12hrs of Sebring a few years ago. Funny thing is of the 13 wagons I've had that's the only one where the seat didn't fold down was the one I slept in lol.

Flash Gumby has a tent that attaches to the tail gate so you have a ton of extra room in there. It's pretty sweet.
