Teardrop Camper with small kitchen and Bear concern

Postby nikki_mv » Wed Dec 28, 2011 11:03 am

I am considering bringing a Teardrop camper to Yosemite. They have a small kitchen in the back area, cooking and prep work as well as a fridge. This is a very small trailer but with hard sides. I am worried that any smells related to the kitchen area could attract bears to my sleeping self in this tiny tin can. I have tent camped in Yosemite several times and never had bear problems but the idea of the trailer worries me. Any thoughts?

If you pack as you do for tent camping and place all foods, trash and hygeine items in the bear box, you have nothing at all to worry about.

Here's an old thread on the topic:

Basically, with hard side trailers (not canvas pop-ups), you're ok.
