Over the last few years I have gone from tent camping; loved it. Upgraded to a 13' Trillium
; loved it. Now I have a 20' sticky; love it. Yes, towing the Trillium
was more expensive than taking the tent; gas milage was worse and road tolls were higher. However, I loved the fact I could pull into a campground, or more often a Walmart, when on the road and cook a meal or have a sleep with no fuss.
As I get older (60), I find I appreciate more space and creature comforts. My Trillium
had a Porta-Potti but now I have a full bathroom, including the shower I missed in the Trillium.
Yes, it costs more for gas now but the few extra dollars in cost are worth it to me for the extra features. I was able to buy my much newer sticky for $300. more than I sold my Trillium for. It has twice the space, is much newer and in much better shape.
I enjoy the 'egg' community; wonderful people. Perhaps I can park nearby and sneak into the odd campfire discussion... I'm sure I'll be welcome, as long as I don't park too close... LOL
