We were driving somewhere over the weekend and one of my boys was asking about auto insurance, etc. Anyway the conversation moved to RV insurance and as we were talking I said that if anything ever happened to our RV that we would most likely move to a different type.
Little background first: Our twin boys are almost 18 and will be heading off to college soon, and right now we have a bunkhouse.
Anyway, as I was saying that their mom and I would most likely get a motorhome or some variation like that he commented that it made him sad to think that he is becoming an adult and will miss all of the trips and the camping and all of those things we have done together as a family. It was pretty sad really.. But at least I know that we have done something right for our boys to lament the fact that their lives will be moving on soon.
Camping has been a very large part of our family dynamic since those boys were very young. We have so many memories over the years, we've hashed out many a problem together roasting marshmellow's over the campfire.
We've taught them cards, dominoes, horseshoes and more at many different campgrounds. Fishing, and the list goes on.
Will my wife and I still RV after our boys leave home.. You betcha... We've even lightly chatted about retirement and traveling the country in a motorhome. But we will always cherish the memories of camping with our kids forever.

When I die, I want to go peacefully like my grandfather did–in his sleep. Not yelling and screaming like the passengers in his car.
