I believe if I am in whats called a campground I am camping whether I have more amenities than the people in a tent just shows I enjoy being more comfortable when I sleep or if it rains cats and dogs and I like sleeping off the ground in the cool when it is hot and humid outside is just a bonus

Yes.....and you have the bed.. No more.. getting around the steering wheel.

We like to canoe camp which involves a tent. We got very interested in an RV when we camped in Florida in May with a low of 82. We were not sleeping.. they were!

We call ourselves "campers" and say we're going "camping," but in reality we're RVers who go RVing. Every site we get has at least power, and sometimes power and water, and occasionally full service. This is pretty much the only way I can get DW to go "camping", in a RV with power. Her idea of a vacation includes airline tickets and hotel reservations. Going "camping", i.e. tent and sleeping bag, is completely out of the question for her.

I call them RV CAMPERS or RV TRAVELERS...

We fall into the RV CAMPING category... This is setting up usually OFF-ROAD up on the high end of a Natl Forest service road within a couple hundred miles of where we live. No hookups... We will stay here at least a week...

I just never got the urge to be the RV TRAVELER. We would meet up with my sister and her hubby big Montana Setup somewhere and he would be wore plum out driving those long distances pulling his whole house along with him... That can't be much fun and is surely expensive...

My small foot print trailer setup is easy on everything going down the road including me... Them big ole diesel trailers will pass us going 70MPH and of course we will most often pull right next to them at the next red light down the road...

Our love is to wake in the morning creekside somewhere watching the fish jump sitting around a bon-fire... Already done all of the traveling for days I'm interested in doing getting from Point A to Point B.

We watch HDTV everynight before going to bed just like the big money guys do... hehe... Its all about what ever you all want to do I reckon... Sometimes we feel like we may be living the 'GREEN ACRES' tv series when we have to climb a tree to make our cell phones work haha...

There is a huge array of RV camping. I think nothing of three five to ten thousand mile trips a year and we went small for that very reason.

Our first trailer trip was long and we stayed in every imaginable type of campground. We found... that we really do not need power as we seldom use the A/C and that dry camping is the best cause in our experience the scenery is best.

However our favorite campground Schoodic Woods in Acadia National Park does have power or power and water sites. Not bad with the senior discount of half price. For some there would be a downside.. Neighbors are pretty far away and its an hour to Bar Harbor. And its quiet.

I look at it this way: I have my TV Parked in my Driveway and tomorrow I'll be Driving on the Parkway with the 5er. So I guess difference Camping versus RVing does not matter much either.

Although I still equate 'camping' with throwing the Backpack on and heading to the mountains to a remote site or loading up the Canoe and spending 10 days in the Boundary waters as I have done many times previously

But yes as RVers, we always have Cold beer
