A two man pup tent,and a light blanket, strapped to the rear seat. Next time I'm taking an air mattress though. I think I'm getting old.

Been looking at tents (to replace my aging Coleman dome tent) for a couple months. I want a tent that I can STAND UP in! I hate trying to put on my gear while lying on my back and having to crawl out! I have my "I-lean" trailer, so space is not much of an issue. REI "Hobitat 6", Sierra Designs "Wu Hu 6" and Eureka "suite V6" are on the short list.

I use an air mattress (full size if with the wife, single when alone) and some cheaper sleeping bag(s). Also looking to upgrade to decent down sleeping bags.

Been tinkering with making some alcohol stoves for water heating and light cooking too.

This is true, and I have found that if I'm not familiar with the spot I'll be camping, a tent is better. That said, if conditions are perfect, they are very comfy and will keep you nice and dry in bad weather. Go get one Pauly, they are fun! Just don't ditch the tent.

Drag out the 35 foot hotel room on wheels. Find a campground with full hooks. On the bike we find a Comfort Inn or something. Uncle Sam broke me of tent camping...

Roughing it for us is a Red Roof Inn. Flips likes the Hampton and Comfort Inn's as her lower form of staying somewhere away from.
