First mini-trip, looking for advice on improvements

Did my first camping trip on the bike, 4 days/nights and about 650 miles total. Had a great time despite the rain and unseasonably cold nights and was hoping to improve my luggage mounting situation for next time although in truth it really gave me no issues. I didnít pack light but I knew the weather would be crap and wanted to be able to enjoy whatever time I got stuck in camp.

I am using Nelson Rigg 3050 soft panniers, the matching duffel and a pair of 15l dry bags. My panniers are almost always on the bike and have always sat a bit of an angle but with the added 15l dry bags strapped on top it made me even more conscious of the problem. I currently have only added a cross piece from the foot peg area to the reflector on the license plate holder... anyone else running these bags on a 15+ and get them to sit level without added pannier racks?
