We got out of camping for the past five years because of other things going on in our life until this year when we bought our popup camper which we love so it gave us a vantage point to make some observations about the changes we noticed and, the recent postings about the possible death of popup campers and the greater proliferation of TT's. We ust spent three days, weekdays, at Straits State Park on the Mackinac Straits in the Upper Peninsula. About half of the campers were TT's, and mostly large trailers, at least 23 feet and larger. The campsites were clearly designed back in the CCC days for tents and it was interesting watching people try to maneuver those beasts into their spots, wives shouting instructions to their husbands about turning this way or that way. Of the remaining campers they were pretty much evenly split between tents and popups. That was certainly not the case five years ago when popups and tents were in the majority. But what I noticed the most was the quiet. About 9 p.m. everything was quiet. Instead of people sitting around campfires and making noise they were buttoned up inside their portable houses. I have had many camping experiences ruined by late night revelers so I didn't mind, and, truth be told w,e being senior citizens, were buttoned up as well. Not very scientific but camping has changed for sure.
