I'm 67, and I still do both. I only have a trailer because my wife refused to tent camp with me anymore. I love to backpack, and go where most others can't. I have a friend who took his trailer on our elk hunt, and his water froze the first night. I have a wall tent with a wood stove, and it is very comfortable in cold weather. I do like the trailer better when the wind is blowing 50 mph. You miss out on so much of the adventure with a trailer. On our sheep hunt in Feb. my son-in-laws tent tore loose from the floor of the tent and blew away. As I was trying to get dressed, my sleeping bag blew away. You just don't get that kind of fun in a trailer.
