    Completely normal and I'm very envious. I sadly have to keep my pup in offsite storage. However it is only a mile from Home Depot so I get my excuse to visit the camper and plan mods for it. ;)

    I was going to say that no, this is not normal, and in fact an abomination and a complete disgrace, but then I realized that I missed a very important word in your question.
    Yes, this is perfectly normal. :D

    Very normal. You can enhance the driveway camping by closing your eyes and putting on your favourite nature cd like this . . . ;)

    Seems perfectly normal to me. I thought I was the only one.

    If I could, then I would. Unfortunately the PUP has to live an hour or so from our house due to not being allowed to park it here. As soon as I bought it the first thing I wanted to do was bring it home, pop it up, and go through everything. So for us, "Camp Driveway" is actually "Camp Aunt's Backyard".

    I worked split open/close shifts at a job for a while and also happened to have a campable van at the time. Spent plenty of afternoons in there at the back of a parking lot under a tree that year.

    Sounds completely normal to me. I bought ours last June, and I don't think I folded it a single time until late August for our first trip. 3 months of cleaning, fixing, and modding. I'd spend most nights after work tinkering inside, and usually ended up relaxing inside until the GF got off work. On weekends, I'd bring the cat out too. She loves sitting and watching the birds through the screening. It's definitely great to have the space and ability to park it in the backyard when not in use. I wouldn't have gotten a camper if I couldn't keep it on site.

    During the summer, with the awning open, it's almost like having a gazebo in our backyard. Complete with cold beverages in the fridge.

    I even pulled some CAT5e to the garage and installed a second router there for a better WiFi signal to the pup.

    Ours stays set up at home and I'm in it often. We live on 8 wooded, very private acres out in the boonies. It's kind of like camping anyway. The only thing missing is a body of water to fish. When we moved to Florida, I was afraid of alligators so refused to consider any property on the three rivers we live near. Kicking myself for that decision now.

    I'm also the only female in my household, so it's nice to have a space to get away from the 3 grown men I live with. Even all my grandchildren are boys so far ...

    Absolutely normal. My only regret is that by now, my family knows where I am when I’ve “gone missing”
