I don't watch TV at home much. Can' imagine why I would watch it when I could be sitting around the fire with my family. A nice glass of brandy. Some fresh baked chocolate chip cookies. Smores baked over the fire. Conversation to catch up on what the kids (29 and 32) are doing.
To really appreciate the comforts that a TT or MH bring to camping, go backpacking for a few days.
The 2 reasons I love camping so much are to enjoy the outdoors and to enjoy quality time with my wife & kids. And whether it's going for hikes, a bike ride or sitting by the campfire, we love getting away from the gravitational pull of the TV. Like most families, we get too much of that when we're at home.
Everyone is different, but not having TV while we're camping works for us. But we were surprised when our RV dealership told us if we wanted to buy a new trailer without a TV, it would pretty much have to be a special order!
