Three Eagle Scouts, tons of tent camping as a Scout Leader in some rely beautiful places that you have to hike into. Too old and crunchy to sleep on the ground now, so we go Airstreaming with most of the comforts of home. Usually don't bother with TV antenna, however. Can live without that.

When I'm sleeping in my Airstream is that camping?

Anyway, I camp because it makes the best memories with my family. There is nothing else like it. No chores or work to do around the house, no kid goes off with an iPad. Even cooking is a family activity when we camp.

We also multiday backpack and are now getting into canoe tripping, although we have just done day trips.

Not sure the fate of Airstreaming when the kids grow up. I think at that point we'd like to travel Europe.

That's wonderful. I hope you both have many more happy, healthy years together in your Airstream. There is something peaceful and relaxing being in the Airstream. So great to have all you need and want within easy reach - we continuously marvel at how we do everything and more in our Airstream that we do in our home - and taking care of the Airstream takes only minutes vs hours and hours! We enjoy 'playing' and having the extra time to relax and just hang out with each other. When I'm in the Airstream I'm so filled with gratitude that it's ours! Enjoy! We cherish every day in the Airstream.

6 yrs full time, kids, grandkids, great grandkids in NY TN Id Az, got old need a place to get health care, sold 43' MH and bought 30' AS and then a house in Fl. Gutted the AS and referb'd it. Made plans for a trip to NY and Tn, but Dr said my wife wouldn't make it without neck surgery so tomorrow it happens but we plan to do Nashville for Thanksgiving. If everything goes well it will truly be a giving of thanks with family.

While there can be no wrong answer to the question...

I question one response about RVs being cheaper than motels. I'm too lazy to do the math. Considering the cost of the RV,hitch, propane, insurance, maintenance, tow vehicle etc. , I am thinking that there is point at which it makes financial sense to have an RV. If you camp once a yearÖIt does not.

Sorry if I hijacked so I will answer the question. I used to backpack into the wilderness, to go back in time a few thousand years. ( playing caveman ). The same reason I made campsites all over my property, within walking distance of A HOUSE. Campgrounds DON'T do that for me personally.

A few posts offered beautiful photos of lakes and nature. Not many campgrounds offer views like that.

Financial sense never comes into play in our camp. The time we get to get away and enjoy the awesome country of ours and meet new folks and explore new things is priceless. Doesn't matter if it's in a tent or a million dollar MH. We only have so much time on this earth and I'm gonna making the most of it. Already wasted too much time not camping and I can't get that time back.

You don't need an Airstream or camping for I don't consider an Airstream camping, but it is very enjoyable to get away from the burden of home ownership. If it wasn't for the Airstream, my only relaxation would be working...........sad isn't it?
