90's model Prowler. We started out with a hand-me-down Winnie Class C. Sold the Prowler and went conventional (motels etc) until we couldn't stand it anymore. Got our 2013 Greyhawk last winter.

Good move. Don't need any "baggage".

It isn't a bad little tent. Operative word being "little". My wife and I fit pretty much shoulder to shoulder in it; forget about bringing the dog along...

I backpacked my youth away, so I thought DW would like to do it too. She said she and her family used to go camping and she loved it, we went tail-gate camping when we dated and generally had fun. "Great!" I said. So I packed everything up and off we went to the backside of Enchanted rock to endure one of the worst thunderstorms I've ever camped through. And that was after DW got severely dehydrated and had heat exhaustion (I should've started force-feeding her my water earlier). We were all dry though, so I thought "okay, that was pretty bad, but we're okay and we're dry". The raccoon made off with my breakfast too, but whatever.... Anyway, so I convinced her to try again, no way it could always be that bad... Pedernales Falls was our next stop. I was watching her like a hawk, forcing her to drink lots of water, giving her mine, taking all the weight out of her pack, she STILL got heat exhaustion. AND we had another "storm of the century" that night! We were dry, we were okay, and she felt a little better after an emergency trip to DQ in Johnson City for a cold drink and a burger.

But, needless to say, she won't go backpacking with me anymore, and she said she wouldn't go camping with me at all unless she had a cool or warm place to put her head at night with a door she could lock. So here we are! AND we are literally 100% for thunderstorms when we take the trailer out! 4 for 4 and we just got our trailer in October!

I guess I'll just have to wait until we have children to get my backpack back on! We really should have known; I was looking back and in the years we dated, we got rained on nearly every time we went camping (tailgating mostly).

Nothing, unless a U.S. Army shelter half counts...

A short 18' toyhauler. I loved it, my wife not so much. All of our other camping history is listed at the very bottom.

I was storing a friends 27' Winnebago class A in my yard. We had a tent. My friend Told me to take it for a week to W. NC. After that trip, my wife would never tent camp again.

First we tent camped, just stuffing the Expedition full, then I gathered too much stuff and bought a small utility trailer and stuffed all the tents, coolers, stoves etc. inside.

Next we bought a 2005 Viking 2407 popup pulled with 2001 Suburban

Then a 2008 Wildwood 23 BHLE pulled with 2005 Suburban

Now we have a 2012 StarCraft 297 BHS pulled with 2011 Dodge Ram 2500 Cummins
