My family and I got rid of our tent when we bought our PUP. The main problem we were having is that we could not find a tent that didn't leak every time it rained. We even bought a canopy to put over the tent because the rain entering into the tent made everyone miserable. We kept the canopy because the awning is linda small but the tent had to go. I suppose if we were hiking then we would tent camp but I enjoy the PUP too much to go back to tent camping.

In 2008 we bought a pup and the tent has not been used since then. Although DW loves the comforts of our Roo she will not let me sell the tent because she says she might want to use it someday. So it sits in our garage awaiting the day he'll freezes over and she agrees to sleep on the ground again.

We took a drive up to Sydney Saturday with the car and were having a hard time getting a hotel room as there was alot going on in the city Saturday night so I said to my wife we would have to buy a tent and camp,she said she would sooner sleep in the car.Luckily we found a room in North Sydney and didn't have to sleep in the car,but I wouldn't have minded a night in a tent,would have took me back to simpler times.

Ok here's an update: I did go tent camping this week with my brother and friend. We had a blast. Weather was great, no rain. There are some nice a simple things about tent camping, but I sure would trade in the camper. I will not regularly tent camp but occasionally it's worth
"roughing it."

My sentiments exactly! Looking back on my family "roughing it years" whilst tent camping the only negative was the ground and that was easily cured with a blow up mattress. Haven't tent camped in years, but I would "Never Say Never".
