LOL I'm with you again there Supr. I actually do love camping and we did it quite often in tents. I'm not scared of creepy crawlies and a little
dirt. The shower/bathroom thing definitely was a huge turnoff though.
We bit the bullet 2 summers ago after I was tired of packing up the truck for the 1,000,000 time with tents, clothes, beach toys, coolers, chairs,
wood, etc, and purchased a trailer. I have to say (and this will probably annoy the die hard tenters), I will NEVER go back to tents! I love my
trailer and all the added ammenities that go with it. Now I just have to pack up some clothes and a bit of groceries and off we go every Friday.
No more full campsites on a long weekend, no prep lists, no soggy lunch meat floating in the cooler of half melted ice. We take up a bunch of frozen
foods, condiments, and dry goods at the beginning of summer and just have to bring fresh fruits, vegs, and things that spoil every friday. We leave a
bunch of clothes up there....'camping clothes', jackets, extra shoes and sweaters, and all our bedding...it's just so easy! Our own toilet and
shower is definitely the best part of the deal.
Our ultimate goal is a cottage, but with real estate prices right now, our trailer will do just fine
P.S. Our trailer does have a furnace and AC, I try not to use them, but sometimes, I just like to be spoiled
