Nope, nada, no way no how!! Nine years in the Marines broke me of camping, spent way too much money on a coach to sleep on the ground!

Like Blackrock, I have a wall tent for deer and elk camping. Too much blood, and mud to get the RV dirty.

As long as your camper is < 25 ft., you should be able to get in to the more remote campgrounds. National Forests are the way to go. Since owning a trailer, first popup, then class B and now a hybrid, we have only camped once without and that was on a cot, under the stars on a one week rafting trip thru the Grand Canyon. Don't think I could enjoy myself sleeping on the ground in a tent anymore.

I just returned from a 4 day camping trip. The roads were rough and the country was remote so I did not bring an RV. I slept in the back of my truck with some good pads. There was a fair amount of wind, so I did not sleep out on a cot. Last night was at 7,200 feet were spring comes late below freezing.

As I am still involved with the Boy Scouts (after 50+ years), I still go tent camping. However, my better half told me years ago that tent camping was fun, but she really liked sleeping off the ground and having the "comfort facilities" within a few steps of the bed. So, when I do tent camp, it is no longer with my wife.

Yes and no. When alone or when just my granddaughter I’ll use the tent. Alone I’ll use the tent or sleep in my truck even slept in the dinning hall. This At the same place. Has two of both male and female indoor bathrooms along w showers. So no need for the camper for just one night. For one person.

I have 2 Eurekas (dome and backpacking), and bought a cool Coleman with a screened vestibule area. That newer Coleman got one use before we got the camper, now we'll never look back. I enjoy tent camping, but I have to haul along a big battery to power my darn CPAP now. Wife won't go with me because she's always freaking out every sound she hears in the middle of the night, thanks to her watching murder shows all the time and thinking someone is standing outside tent with a giant knife, and if it's not that, her fear of bears and knowledge that campers in sleeping bags in tents are the soft tacos of the bear world.

I do not mind, I am very adaptable. However, my missus, she is either too hot or too cold. I an rough it out but she has to be able to fart around with a thermostat or she is not happy.

Camped on tents many times since I was a Boy Scout and spend 22 years in the Army on tents or shop set. I remember one time that slept on the open to woke up with snow on my face.

I still do long whitewater river trips and out of the way desert camping.

So tents are part of the plan, if you don't feel like sleeping out under the stars.

Absolutely

Canít take an RV into the Boundary Waters. Canoe and tent all the way. I am 70 and will still backpack back into remote trout fishing. Truthfully, if I lost my wife I would ditch the travel trailer.

Absolutely,
That's my concern also. When the DW goes we must have the creature comforts. I'm also a prospector and the places that I go are in undeveloped areas and the 26 footer would never make it
That's why I have a 1976 Apache Royal hard side popup sitting in the garage for my mining time.
I still have a tent also but swore off it as it always seems to rain if I use it.
