Nights Camping Poll

Everyone has high hopes for spending weeks at a time camping.
The reality many times is far less than we would like.

It would be most informative to plot the years you have owned the camper vs the number of nights camped to get some idea of actual cost per night camped.

Can't do that within the confines of the poll software here on the forum, but how about an average per year based on your total ownership of your camper.

That should even out the first year "near every weekend it did not rain" to the most recent "it has been a tough summer" one. Try not to guess so folks can actually see "real results."

Let's see where this goes.

<sigh> I missed that! I think I captured the intent of your response with my edit.

Less than 21 days a year. It would be a lot more, but work seems to get in the way.

Remember it is an average of all years camping; not last year.

See my tag line and the average is 56.5 days

We got in 16 nights since the 5er came in july 24th. May get a couple more in yet. Would have more but wife and kids schedules make it hard. Next year there should be more than double that!
Can't wait till next summer!!!!!

Holy Crap,this site has turned into a (Polling Place) how do we find time to (Camp)? Cost justification per days used would be a (Bad) investment! Oh yea we used the trailer 100 days of travel down the road this year,CRS on past years! Youroo!!

Thirty five days so far this year. Mostly 3 day weekends as I work for Uncle Sam. We hope to squeeze in three more this month and maybe 7 more in December. It's hard to assign a dollar amount to all that time spent with my wife and kids. It truly is priceless.
