    How do you keep things from freezing while driving? Keeping the plumbing unfrozen while I'm actually camping and the furnace is running doesn't seem like that big of a deal. But longer drives in...

    That makes sense, and doesn't seem like too much of a hassle. Although we generally have enough gear piled on and around the toilet that using it is generally not possible.
