I began "camping" in my teens as a way to eat and sleep while I was doing OTHER STUFF, like hunting or fishing. Just as I have always seen my boat(s) as an extension of my tackle box.
Now that I am pushing 80, I see "camping" as a way to eat and sleep while doing OTHER STUFF.
I go to Zion to see the rocks and birds.....to the gulf for the water and marshes.....to Wyoming to fish.....etc.
I don't go to any of them to sit in front of my RV and wave at the neighbors. That's the reason we don't run rope lights around the rig, hang cutsie lights from the awnings, or lay an 8 x 12 rug in front of the door.
Wife is the same way. She wants to go to Quincy for the car show, see the "world's largest ball of string", stop and get catfish and dance at some east TX honky-tonk.
In sum......we want to see and do "stuff". Our rv is for sleeping and eating.
