I'm no psychologist, but I think it's more of the Man-Cave thing. Or even more likely, it's the fort/treehouse we always wanted as a kid. And this one has, heat, AC, television and a fridge!!

I have one better then that, 2 of the granddaughters and daughter in law slept in my fathers motor home in the driveway. The girls were pretending that they were camping.

I "camp" in mine occasionally in the shop when it's "foggy" out and I can't find my way to the house.
Guilty as charged.

My coffee would quickly have a thin layer of ice on the top but otherwise I could see it happening.

Doing it right now too! Having in the backyard means I can access my wifi and work on my laptop and pretend I'm at the lake. And during the really cold spells when I ran a Lesko heater during the night to keep it warm I liked sleeping out there and hearing the sleet/snow. It was just the cold run to the house for the bathroom that wasn't perfect ;-)

I had a 30amp rv box installed on the back porch so I could plug it in and it was the best $150 I've ever spent.

I can say ordering Pizza to the trailer would be neat. The Dog gets all excited when we bring the trailer home, wants to go.
Today it was -12 C on the way into work, we did a major cleanup yesterday getting ready for first trip just after Easter.
