Messy camper clean camper?

I am just curious about how everyone keeps their camper when camping? We camp with a big group and it's fun to see how the different campers and sites are kept.

I voted first. I picked the kids one. We used to keep our motorhome really clean when our daughter was younger. Now that all the kids are at that a 5-10 years old (about 6-8 kids on a trip) range they seem to leave a mess behind everywhere they go. We try to put everything away as they go through, but it becomes more work than it's worth. We just pick up before we go to sleep at night.

Its a subjective thing. Its just the DW and myself. To me our camper looks cluttered, to her it looks fine. I've learned just to roll with it.

We like to keep it picked up, a place for everything and everything in its place. However when the grandkids are with us all rules go out the window and we survive.

My Wife goes overboard. I dare not leave anything messed up. I can, however, make reasonable messes in the coach basement. If it gets too bad and she happens to look, then out comes the vacuums, scrub water, etc....

It was tough getting used to that.

I voted 'Fairly picked up'. DW and I have a difference of opinion on this. I hang my jacket up in the closet, hers is put over one of the dinette chairs, etc. I do dust and vacuum once a week. I like the dishes put away instead of just left in the drying rack.

While we are camping we are usually in a constant state of organized chaos.

2 dogs, 3 kids and however many additional friends the kids brought with. We just try to make sure everything is wiped down, swept up and put away when we leave on Sunday.
