*I* am one who said we don't cook in our RV.
There's a crap load (pun intended) of difference between an RV and a "tent with a futon", the main one being A/C and/or heat.
No recliners in a tent.
No Serta mattress on the futon in a tent.
No shower in that tent.
No running HOT and cold water in a tent.
Not on the ground dealing with bugs and other critters in our RV at night.
Rain doesn't affect us when we're camping in the RV, like it does for those in tents.
And last but not least, I can lock the door on our RV. Can't do that in a tent.
If we were stuck camping during a monsoon, I'd probably cook in our RV. We just prefer to grill outside, or snack on something warmed up in the microwave.
To each his/her own.
Our "family of choice" friends that camp often with us do not flush TP either. I've never read a rule book about camping styles. Is there such a thing?
