Yay or nay.
Yay! We paid our "dues" by camping in a tent for 20+ years. Just because we have a TT and the guy next to us has a tent doesn't mean we're not experiencing the same thing. So I have a comfortable bed, a toilet (and I DID have one in my tent, BTW), water, heat and/or A/C, television, stereo, etc. I'm still in the same campground as the tenters. I'm still walking the same trails, experiencing the same glimpse of nature, sitting next to a campfire, just like everyone else in the campground.
On the other hand, I've seen RV'er's who park in a concrete parking lot devoid of trees, who never come out of their unit except to hook it up. They wouldn't even THINK about a campfire, lest it pollute their airspace. IMHO, they're not camping.
