We are on our third fifth wheel

We have had two truck campers, one popup and a small bumper pull but those were ALL used for DH hunting trips - no way I was going to stay in any of those even at home in the driveway !

First one had one slide out, second one we went to fiberglass exterior with two slides and fireplace - now we have three slides, fireplace, slide toppers, electric awning and level up system !

Can't wait till we upgrade the next time - have seen some with six slides now ....oh my !!!

Yes it is still camping 😃

we have done everything from sleeping in tipi for rendezvousing , wall tents and wedge tents to motorhome, 2 fifth wheels, TT, 3 pop ups, after back surgery sleeping in a bed feels much better than sleeping on the round. still love to cook over the open fire, but when it is raining love the stove inside dry,,, done the outhouse in the frost prefer dry bottom and warm in the restroom, had a friend that said roughing it was camping with a black and white tv.... may be getting a little older maybe a little wiser, but being comfy is a little nicer, but what ever time with family making memories and teaching the grandkids about the outdoors and respect for nature is all worth it no matter what your camping in.....enjoy have fun make memories.

I find it funny, a good friend of mine calls it wussy camping (Well, a more colorful version of the word, wussy.) but when we were nearby camping and the storms blew in they had no problem knocking on the door and taking the couch that was offered earlier.

I've slept on the ground with a minimal mat, in tents, in nice tents with nice sleeping bags and have paid my dues. I'm in the woods, cook my dinner outside on a fire and admire nature. When I'm ready to shut off and go to sleep, I do it in my king bed in my camper with climate control. Though once or twice I've fallen asleep in the leather easy chair, don't judge me.

My wife and I were avid backpackers for over 25 years, 2 person tent, setting up flys out of nylon tarps when it was raining so we could cook over a backpack stove the size of a coffee can. Hiked and average of 8 to 13 miles per day, changing camps almost every day. Dirty, no showers, same clothes for 16 days. Most times didn't see anyone for a week at a time. Truely built a team mentality (she carried the food, I carried the stove and fuel). In our youth, it was a dream. After 55, our old bones just couldn't sleep on the ground anymore, let alone let us get up off the ground!
What we do now in our TT is camping, but in a different paradigm. Is it for everyone to do? NO, but neither is the extreme backpacking we did earlier on in our years.
Is the experience the same? NO it's a different experience. We used to swim in cold mountain streams, now it's in a "cement pond" (to quote J D Clampett).
My point is, things are not the same, and tent camping is not equivelent to RV camping, but it's still the essence of being out.
