Since we graduated to the HTT I irritate my DW by telling her we RV and no longer camp, but I enjoy it just the same, especially since I can have a small serving of Hagen Daas every night before bed. I have a friend who says it isn't camping but he hasn't been out in 5 years himself. I still enjoy backpacking so no one can really give me too much grief. I'm sure there are some who believe its not camping if you're in a tent.

We live in our rig in an RV park. Sometimes when we hit the sack we ask

each other, "Are we camping?" Then we answer and say, "I love camping!" It is what it is...and we love it!

We are usually in our 34' TT with deck, firepit, shed and all the park amenities including beach, dock, golf course, and swimming pool all summer (seasonal). It doesn't feel as much like camping compared to when we tented it in the U.P. of Michigan four days and 11 nights in SC. So, I guess we do both, but I still call my RV a "camper" .

Some people have a cottage by the lake some people have a cottage in the woods other people have a cottage on the beach. I consider my fiver a cottage on wheels Yes we do sit by a campfire in the evenings and enjoy outdoors activities but I don't know if I really call that camping but it works for me. Lately we find ourselves going to RV parks with paved roads, concrete pads, manicured lawns and full hook ups with cable TV and WiFi. I consider that to be RVing not really camping.

By my standards we RV, I was raised pack up a bag get lost that's camping. But by my friends standards we not only camp but rough it.

Typical camping trip:

4 people: 2 adults 1 16yr old and 1 5yr old 2 dogs (sometimes)

we use a campsite with hookups when we can

there is a TV but no one turns it on. Its been on twice, once at the dealer once when my 5yr old was sick.

we do have smart phones and if there's signal we end up using them some, if no signal no big deal. Went to Yosemitte spent 13 days there never turned on anything but a MP3 player for the drive.

Little known secret I try to pick spots without signal don't tell the kids

we cook outside on a BBQ or fire for every meal weather permitting

We eat outside except when too buggy

It's not camping unless we have toasted marshmallows

the kids use sleeping bags in their bunks

and we try to see something outdoors and different every time we go.

we take our bikes to get around

we stay outside as much as possible.

So do we camp or RV?

I always say we are "Campering"

People 'get it' and its usually good for a laugh.

"Glamping" the wife's new camper which is a 36qbok is definitely glamorous camping. However the way I look at it, when I walk out the door I'm doing the same thing as the folks in tents....

I call the TT "camper" to differentiate it from the "motorhome". But since we are getting rid of the MH, that is not longer a concern.
We don't call it camping; we call it "going to the beach" or "going to the woods" or "going to see <insert destination here>". It's just understood we are taking our base of operations with us.
Labor day weekend, we drove our car to Myrtle Beach to give away our old TT. We stayed in a hotel near the beach. To go to the beach we had to load everything we'd need for the day into the car, find public beach access, and carry chairs and umbrella with us. Returning resulted in loads of sand in our black carpet. There was no inviting awning with chairs and cold drinks waiting for us there.
That's when we decided we needed another TT - fast!
