Default Non-Extreme, Light Disco 2 Camping/Glamping

For light overnight camping, I'm thinking that I want:
bug screens for windows and open hatch (maybe magnetic split screen to make entry/exits easy)
USB desktop fans for Summer air circulation
Some sort of pad for the rear hatch floor to lay sleeping bags on
Some sort of 5 gallon bucket toilet system for outside the vehicle
Solar bag shower
Pencil sharpener to make twigs into wood shavings for fire starting
some sort of sterno or campfire setup
sulfur bags to slap on ankles to keep ticks away
some sort of food and water containers


Without going to extreme tent/kitchen setups, what has worked best for eaaaaasy Disco 2 weekend camping for you?

I used a 99.00 folding mattress pad and a plywood support

Propane 2 burner coleman stove is a better choice for cooking

And I use Plastic tubs to store everything in

Iíve never had a good experience sleeping in a car.

Bring a small propane torch to start a fire, forget the shavings.

This is all I can offer. The propane torch tip is from Overland Bound.

No Doubt you can check this thread out https://landroverforums.com/forum/bu...-thread-94483/ it started as a prep to go to Tuktoyaktuk, Northwest Territories, but work feels I can not be way in the time frame to go. So now it is a general build for 4 to 5 day trips. I do 4 to 5 trips a year varying from 2 to 3 day trips with the local land rover group, to 3 to 7 day solo runs. I sleep in my Disco and store everything inside, when I am done it all comes out and stacks in the garage.

Thanks. I especially like that spare tire backpack storage idea. Makes a lot of sense for weekend camping gear.

No Doubt if you use it for storage just watch the weight, we used to do it with rucksacks when I was a reservist. The regt broke /cracked a few jeep (m38) spare tire mounts that way.

For a bug screen - My wife actually stumbled on these - there are various brands, this is just one example I found quickly on Amazon.

https://www.amazon.com/Kuyang-Universal-Breathable-Windshield-Passengers/dp/B07QKW52F5/ref=sr_1_2_sspa?keywords=car+window+screens&qid=1561404323&s=gateway&sr=8-2-spons&psc=1 https://www.amazon.com/Kuyang-Universal-Breathable-Windshield-Passengers/dp/B07QKW52F5/ref=sr_1_2_sspa?keywords=car+window+screens&qid=1561404323&s=gateway&sr=8-2-spons&psc=1

It goes OVER the entire door frame so you can roll the windows down.

This is my thread of what I did in my D2 for sleeping inside.

Yeah, these things are ok, but on which you will sleep? you need to buy air mattress because its easy to use and carry and will not take too much space, and you also consider to buy sleeping pads, good thing is they both are washable, I mostly take both of them along in my trip, I customized them from Nest Bedding Coupons, they are not pricey thats why I recommend you.
