Not that it would matter if they didn't.

Camping or RV'ing

We, like most people started out in a tent, sleeping on the ground. Now that we have moved up to a TT, I consider what we are doing is Camping/RV'ing. We do not bring a television on most occasions, and if we do it usually is when we are there for longer that a weekend. Use it to watch a dvd if we get a rainy day. Apart from sleep, we spend about 95% of our time outside of the trailer. All our food is cooked outside also either on our Weber or over an open fire. Have an oven in the TT but have never used it. No i-pad or cell phones unless we have to call out. We use our trip as rest and relaxation time. Reading, hiking, biking, etc.

I dont camp. I never did while I was in the military either (ARMY fixed wing aviation) and I dont want to now. we travel to see places, and I carry 3 flat screen TV`s and a xbox also A/C is nice in the hot summer nights. when I was a kid we went every weekend and sleep on the hard ground. I am a adult and made my mind up of no more hard beds we always have a fire and roast stuff. kids and the wife like my camping just fine thank you....lol

Your minority is mightily populated.
When we got our used 1995 Sunline, we discovered what a "travel"trailer is. Now we have our Rockwood and have used it mainly as our motel on wheels, setting up a base camp in an RV or state park and taking day trips. We kept our pop up for "camping" as in boondocking.
Now DW has become used to having her own bathroom and shower. Port-a-Johns and shared facilities have become, shall I say, "unattractive." So she suggested we put dual batteries on Rocky, up the propane to dual 30s and get a Yamaha generator so we can camp w/o hook ups. All that being accomplished, Rocky is ready to travel and camp.
We still use the pop up for remote places Rocky won't physically fit into.

If having taking an ice cream cake for my birthday with us in the camper isn't camping why did they install a freezer in my camper?

maybe they are mistaken and that they are referring to "tenting" not "camping"....

"Camped" last weekend. 98% of the time in the TT napping, watching Netflix or DVDs, playing video games, board games, sippin frosty adult beverages, just good quality time. It's the 'getting away' that's so great. No feeling guilty about not getting to the honey do lists around the house.

No 'real' camping for us. I wouldn't mind it so much, but the wife would have none of it. She tried it once to appease me, never again.

Interesting. I'm not shy when saying that I don't "camp" - I'm happy with what we do.
