Any fool can be uncomfortable while camping or you can go with luxury. While in your unit do you have a CAMPFIRE in the evening? I have done the tent, pup, slide in truck camper, 5er and now have a 3001 which is our summer home and a second trailer for traveling and will be used as our winter home in a warmer climate. DW and I full time and still consider what we do as camping. We have our nightly fires and enjoy a drink of 2 while entertaining guests around the fire.

Hiked a part of the Appalachian Trail in my youth. Scenic but not comfortable. Those days are long over. My motorhome is my beachfront, mountain, event site vacation home. You may call as you wish but I sure love not digging my own toilet.

Just the mere fact that we're all communicating via this digital forum about what we do while some of us are doing it is actually ironic and funny, considering what camping once was (and still is for some) compared with what it is today.

DW and I took a motorcycle trip to Canada with a small tent and things packed on. On the way through Duluth it was in the low 40's, by the time we got into Canada it started to rain lightly, it did not stop for 2 days. It was miserable with no where to get out of rain so our last night we got a hotel room with a hot tub. A couple years later we bought our first PU camper and haven't looked back since. I have no problems towing my "home" around and calling it camping.

I grew up in the wilderness of Virginia. Slept out in the woods many-a-nights under the stars. Sometime took a tent and built a campfire and cooked fish from the river. Later, dug my own catholes while "camping" in the Marines. Many more nights in 1/2 of a "Shelter Half" (occupied by another Marine with the other half). Many months "camping" in Iraq. Now that I am retired and can afford more luxuries, I don't mind a bit that I can tow my camper with toilet, bed, fridge, heat, a/c, tv, etc. and enjoy the outdoors with my wife and two kids. One day, I would like to show the kiddos what camping is like in a tent with a campfire, but for now, they love the 5th wheel and all they fun we have hiking, traveling, Jellystone, etc. Oh, yeah, the DW thinks that anything else, besides the TT/5er, is too uncomfortable to be enjoyable.

As long as I'm having fun, it just doesn't matter. I'm getting excited for our 2nd year with our camper.
