I tent camped my whole life before we got our first TT several years ago. Now we are seasonal. It's a different deal from having to wake up -n- p and step in the dewy grass. Or having to cook outside when it's raining. Or worrying animals will get in your stuff. It's dryer, warmer, more comfy, and homey. I will admit, however, there are times when I long for a nice crash close to the ground. There is something about a tent, a camplight, sleeping bag and the stars with no a/c, tv, or radio to drown out the crickets.
