Why do you THINK your kids would even ask that?
As for folks in big rigs not "camping", it's what they want and enjoy. Why should they have to conform to your definition.
Many people in big rigs are full-timing. They aren't camping, they are living their lives. Others are sightseeing - they aren't communing with nature, they are going to museums and wineries and casinos and spending time with families. Maybe some of that takes them to a campground. Maybe they want to see the Grand Canyon or Yellowstone while sleeping in their own bed and not giving up creature comforts.
Why must people knock others in order to be happy with what they have?
My aunt just bought a brand new huge trailer. They are buying recliners for it. They goes camping with their adult kids, grandkids and great grandkid - She and her husband are in their 80s. She is out of state visiting her older brother - using her trailer as a cottage on his property. Should I condemn her for not "camping" appropriately just because I do it differently? Or should I be happy to see her enjoying her trailer as she sees fit?
This post is about people in big rigs looking down at popup owners - but some of these posts are just as bad.[/QUOTE
I realize this is a super old reply, but I noticed your Trail Life icon. We are a part of TX-226. We are heading out for a family campout in just a few hours.It's just a human's fallen nature, to (among other things) try and make ourselves feel better by comparing ourselves to each other. We all do it in some form or another, myself included. Ever drive by a homeless person and have that quick second thought looking down your nose at them or to a coworker comparing what kind of car you drive, thinking your better off or better at managing your money etc.
I have heard of campgrounds not allowing pups and I have never encountered it but I am sure that the BIG RVers and 5th wheelers look down their nose at us and tent campers.
We are breed unto ourselves.
So just remember those poor people are sitting in or driving a giant gas sucking bus type vehicle that cost about the same as a modest home. They don't know the joys of our PUP life.
I started to pack a couple Hobo Freight level tarps in the TT, just for these folks. I tossed a tarp over some car camper's stuff while they were still out backpacking. We were just nursing the fire. They gave me leftover bacon in the AM, knowing their cooler was done for the day, and I had a Fridge. Brilliant ladies to say the least. And, I enjoy free meat.I did walk by a family tenting during a pouring rainstorm...
From my research it used to be called "Door County Camping Retreat" but got new owners 5 or 10 years ago and they renamed it.I’m not familiar with that one (been a while!) - I know it’s hard as heck to book up there! Next time you are over this way, I know a guy that would probably offer up his driveway and make dinner & drinks lol…. Good ol’ Wisconsin hospitality…. tell you what man….
My brother just bought a used 2010 $50k 5th wheel and get this he actually got a 30 year loan. In answer to your question, no they are not paid off and they likely will be trading it in before the loan is even paid off. I honestly can't wrap my head around why take such a huge loan on a toy you may use about six times in a season unless your retired and your using it nearly full time.how in the ******* do people afford all of these today? are they actually paid off???!!
