+1 on that. You could probably go on vacation for cheaper than camping, but for me and my situation (4 kids & 2 dogs) the camper is cheaper per trip if I consider that we typicaly rent a house not a hotel room. There is the upfront cost of the camper but having our own beds where ever we go is priceless. I don't like bed bugs!
Camping is more work, set up, clean up, repairs etc... but we are enjoying it!
