Hi All,
We've recently purchased a Tru Blu Crow Camper and are suitably impressed with it. It has the basic electrical system in it, 2 single 12v sockets on the bed base and 1 other on the rear of the trailer near the kitchen. Can anyone recommend any further items which might be handy to have and any additional upgrades the system may need. Any thoughts on fixing lights to the camper or are we better off running portable lighting?

I run some LED lights in the inside of my tent along the support bars as they draw bugger all power. I also have a 1000w inverter running things like a toaster for the morning toast. I also run a halogen light off my inverter in the kitchen area as I like to light the place up like a stadium.

Not sure about newer tru blus but I have added a battery, a bunch of 12v outlets, latest was a led striplight inside which is brilliant, hopefully I can use it before the end of the year.....
I would add more lights to my kitchen if I used it more...

Thanks for the help! I think I'm going to add another 2 12 Volt outlets on the rear tailgate so I can run the fridge and a light in the annex over the kitchen and was thinking about a strip light with some sort of dimmer in the main tent. Thinking about a light under the bed base to light up inside the trailer and maybe another one in the front toolbox. Any ideas on where to get good quality reasonably priced strip lights?
