Convenience. I can hitch/unhitch the car in the time Mrs. Goofy is inside registering. With a dolly you have to make it to the campsite, drop the car, drop the dolly, wheel it out of the way, then get into the site. Triple, quadruple the time.

OK. I can see that. Makes some sense. Although I don't see why you still couldn't drop the car while Mrs. G is registering. Then it would just be the dolly to deal with at the camp site.

There's a gizmo you can buy which monitors the usage and cuts off the fridge if the voltage gets too low.

Interesting. I might have to look into that.

Here's a pic; you can get it for about $80 at WalMart:

Yep. That's the one I've got. We carry along extra bottled water. The 1 liter and 1/2 liter bottles will fit into small spaces all around the van. Then we keep the cooler filled with water bottles. Several good things come of this:
-drinking water is a whole lot healthier than drinking the sodas I'd otherwise buy.
-Keeping the cooler full of bottled water adds a bunch of thermal mass. Get those cool, and they'll help keep everything else cool when you need to unplug the cooler
-There's plenty of water available in case of emergency, and bottles to refill if needed.
