One of the big selling points to get a camper was the fact that it is ours, our bed, our bathroom, our linens, etc. The last few hotels we stayed in were a little dirty, even though they were the better hotels, so that helped sell the idea of a camper as well. She does like the idea that at the end of the day we are in our own extended home. Plus we don't have to worry about our little dog, she is at home in the camper and we don't have to worry about staying in pet friendly hotels.
We are now retired so this is our retirement gift, mainly my retirement gift, so we can start traveling more and not have to worry about hotels.

After almost 10 yrs he wanted to trade up to a hard side which we did.
Our DD is on a Lacrosse travel team so we travel with the TT and camp nearby. We love having our own creature comforts and a comfortable place for our dogs.
My DH changed his idea of camping after I showed him how much fun and relaxing it can be. I was able to show him and our DD sites I was shown by my parents. We have camped in over 40 states. We can't wait until we retire and have more time to travel.
It has been great adventure.
