Nice camper! I like the rear entertainment area. I remember when we got our first camper in 2020…wow, the things we had to either buy or buy to leave in the camper! This may sound odd, but two words - “ice maker.”

Congrats!

I hope you have a blast chasing sunsets and sunrises. :)

I live in a 213 RB full time.
When I travel I pull either a small Toy Hauler or a Teardrop.

So nothing heavy. (which makes the Powerboost a magic machine no matter where I am)

But YES! On the ICE Machine.
I make about a gallon bag of ice at a time.

If you’re at a campground with electricity, take a small electric heater for those chilly nights to conserve your propane. Electric is included… propane is extra. Use the propane for a … wait for it… blackstone!

Looks like a good candidate for the Ford Accessory Trailer TPMS+Cam (I love mine, no more add-on displays in the truck!).

Happy glamping! ;)

It's funny seeing the non-toy hauler layouts of campers that share layouts/chassis. Like "Who puts a couch in front of the ramp door?"

Helps with humidity too, but I don't think he even needs a campground, just some gas in the tank and proper cabling!

to expand on this piece of advice, you can buy a thermostatically controled outlet to run the electric heater off of.

Most certainly, as have many others.

Here's my post about it within a thread exhausting the topic. My particular installation addresses some specific 'tweaks' to make it '5th-wheel friendly' which you can ignore, but everything you need to know about implementing the 'Superduty' Trailer TPMS+cam accessory is in that thread.

HINT 1: First verify that your 2021 PB has the 360-degree cam package with the 'aux' cam button which will show a blue screen without the trailer cam attached; and that your IPC display has the menu item "Towing > Trailer Tire Info > Trailer with Tire Pressure Monitor Capability Not Detected" .

The former is needed for the trailer cam display, the latter is needed for the trailer TPMS configuration and display. If you don't have those there may be a FORScan solution described in the thread, but I didn't need to pursue that.

HINT 2: The 2021+ model year Superduty accessory trailer TPMS+cam package is 100% compatible with the 2021+ model year F150 as long as the F150 hsa the requisite TPMS and cam support mentioned in Hint 1.
