What if the paint peels?

Don't be too quick to blame the paint. If properly applied, a quality exterior paint should hold up for at least four years.

How to pamper a camper

The secret is to travel light. Sleeping bags are more efficient than blankets for bedding. They're warmer, more compact, make up faster, and are easier to stow. Don't use rigid suitcases for clothing. They rob space and clutter the aisles. Coach closets keep clothes wrinkle-free. Carry a duffel bag for soiled clothing.
