When we tent camped, we pretty much had the comfort of home minus the television and bathroom. Even when we towed a small trailer behind my husbands Road King, people were surprised at our camp site. The only reason for the T.T. is because of my health.

I think of glamping as having all of the modern convenience of a motel room except it is in a big tent, like a real bed. I don't look at our T.T. as glamping. Now the OP SIL 5er would be considered as extravagant. Even if I had the money for something like that, I would not have all that fancy stuff.

There is camping and there's RVing. 2 different activities.

I always figured I had attained glamping status once we had hot running water. Our old pop up was still camping when we were heating water on the gas stove or electric kettle.

No such thing as Glamping.

Either you are camping (no amenities) or you are RVing (full amenities).

Agreed. RVing is not glamping.
I moved from basic tent camping to glamping to RVing. When I was glamping I moved up to a tall two room tent, Camp chairs and wine chest in the front, bedroom in the back, both rooms had rugs, battery operated chandelier, blowup queen size bed with side tables, Solar generator operated my lights and fans . Even had my port a potty in a small privacy tent set up just a few feet away.
It was a whole different dimension of space and comfort from basic tent camping.

In my opinion, The more connections you have to your camper the closer you are to glamping. Cable TV, Wi-Fi in the park, even a full-time sewer connection add to make your camping experience more glamorous.
