Sometimes I think that two is too many. Enjoy all the family getting together, but I pick camp grounds with cabins. I may cook for 21+ people, but just the better half and me in the trailer.

Have a friend with a huge 5er that says it will seat 12 but only sleeps 2 and that applies to all family members including his daughter and grand children. Says he rents them a motel that is close.

That's why it's called the "Great Outdoors"...looking to get away from rubbing elbows!

I guess I'm on the other end of the spectrum. I love my family and friends and encourage them to come along whenever we go. Will have 10 next weekend and looking forward to it.

So true!! That's why our 32 footer only sleeps TWO. We will let someone occasionally sleep on our couch for a night or two. But I enjoy the privacy, and not having to crawl over bodies or fight for the bathroom makes me a much happier camper.

We've told our kids (all grown) our new RV only sleeps two.

I'm all about camping with friends or family but they gotta bring their own "housing".

I've found that those not having to pay for something really aren't as careful about damaging it.

I've already informed my sons this RV *WILL NOT BE LOANED OUT!!*

I watched an extended family this weekend; man, wife, 3 young boys, grandmother, grandfather and one other grandchild with autism.

The young wife (occasional help from her husband)did *all* the cooking....I mean three full meals a day, and they were camping in a pop up, while grandmother and grandfather along with the autistic child (he was a real handful...lots of screaming...about 5 years old) were camping in a 5er.

Yesterday I saw the young mother trek up to the 5er and come back with 2 dozen eggs. She told me the occupants of the 5er were all still asleep, she had to wake them to get the eggs.

Sure 'nuff, they came stragglin' down about the time breakfast was ready.

Newp, that ain't happenin' in our campsite. Sure, come on, let's go camping, but bring your own camper.

And.....

I'm bettin at the end of the trip all the "extras" head on home while the owner of the RV spends two hours unloading it and cleaning it up.

With just me and DH after 4 nights on the lake, we spent a whole hour unloading and cleaning our TT.

Of course we wipe down the shower, wipe out the fridge, sinks, etc. and mop/dust mop the floors, scrub the porcelain throne, add chemicals to tank, etc.

I don't even wanna think about the clean up and how long it'd take with a dozen folks, with kids, in it for 4 days.
