So I always have the ladder on the drivers side because that puts me closer to the driver side door in case of...I don't know, quick escapes? Anyway, I'm looking at getting a trailer so I'm thinking about switching it because trailer door openings are always on the passenger side. Kind of made me wonder if I've been doing it wrong. Most of my camping is out in the woods so it doesn't really matter but when I have gone to campgrounds it's a little problematic as I pull in forwards and the tailgate is facing the road. Anyway, how do you have it setup?

Driver's side 100%. I just like being able to go from driving down the road to deploying my tent and sleeping without having to touch the other side of the truck

Passenger side. We set up our earlier RTT setup and our current camper setup to be more accessible from the passenger side of the vehicle. I make it so the truck is laid out so that if any access of any gear, equipment, or whatever is needed it is primarily accessible from the passenger side just in case you have to access stuff on the side of the road. I want to be away from traffic, not closer to it. Obviously you may not flip your tent much on the side of the road, but I have. I've cleaned it out in front of my house, and I've camped on the side of the highway on Big Sur.

I did Driver side. I have to walk around the truck about 9 times to set it up, but I wanted an awning on the passenger side so driver side made more sense for the tent opening.

I’ve actually had it on both sides. I have traction boards mounted on my bed rack on the drivers side, hilift on the passenger side. I ended up having to take the traction boards off every time just to open my tent. I was too lazy to switch everything on the rack, and eventually got an awning on the passenger side, so flipping it to that side just made more sense to me.

Driver's side. When I deploy the tent, I let the cover drape down and put up the annex room. The other side has my trasharoo.
When I get to a campsite, I like the idea of looking right out the driver's side door window as I envision fire pit location and then I can place the truck exactly where I want it as I anticipate where the ladder will drop.
