Maybe it's me but......It's just weird

When I think that I will be having company that doesn't have camping gear. I put a foam mattress in the back of the van. That way people can go to bed and wake up whenever they want to. It's weird to have company in a 20 footer. Too close for comfort.

We have a pop up tent for the grands and i sleep in the hammock next to them. You could also request that they bring and be responsible for their own linens. We have a blow up mattress that will fit on a sofa but in reality it is just too big and we took it out. Many campgrouns have cabins or park models that visitors can rent.

So when is this..."old enough to know better" supposed to kick in?

I am in the "guest room" camp.
Small tent, Therm-a-Rest pads, and a couple of sleeping bags. That way we can use them if we want to camp up a more rugged road than we want to take the Airstream up.
An added benefit is that you are being hospitable with out encouraging long stay guests.

Guess we are too welcoming. We got our 28' specifically so we would have enough room for others to join us. So far the kids and grandkids and some cousins have "slept over". We carry extra pillows, extra sheets, extra blankets. It can be a little cramped, but the more the merrier!

We have a 23' and our guest of 4 weeks just left this past week. We asked him to bring a sleeping bag but he forgot. Luckily, I had an extra comforter and pillow and he seemed just fine with that arrangement. He didn't have many complaints about sleeping on the couch. I should add, however, that he can sleep anywhere and at anytime. ;-)

I totally agree.
I heard it said more times than I can recall:
We can have 6 over for dinner, etc but, only sleep 2~!
