    Yeah, I totally get it if it works better, makes sense. And for lots of bikes. I just wasn't on board to save a few bucks. I'm a cheapskate but I'm also work/free time-losing averse.

    Probably not a concern, but soft sided campers are not allowed in some of the campgrounds in bear country. I know GTNP and Yellowstone campgrounds specifically.
