Giving up tent camping

We sold our Keystone trailer in 2013 and went back to tent camping and now with purchase of our new 2016 SLX 174BH we hope to be doing alot more camping again.

We do both Tent camping and POPUP trailer camping all the time. Somtimes at the same time haha...

I always carry my tent camping gear along with us... We don't really sleep on the ground anymore... Long time ago we found the folding tent beds where you slip in a air mattress... Been using them for a long time... These fold up in a neat tote bag...

we still like to tent camp. It takes a couple of days to get to Lake Superior and trailer camp along the way.
Then stash the trailer, pack the kayaks with tent and sleeping bags and backpacking airmattresses and go kayak camping for ten days.
