Last year at Death Valley. At times the view was blocked, other time the wind was blocked.

Good to let the house on wheels block the sand blasting, from the wind, see they are good for something!!!!

Big rig, many passengers. Travel in style

Biggest rig ever - mind you it sleeps about 24 German tourists traveling across the US.

Here's a picture of our earlier style of camping and later, we moved up to something a bit larger.

Oh yeah, RV size definitely matters! The smaller, the better.

It's funny, when we bought our first hardside trailer in '05, I had read on another large RV forum many comments about people buying too small and trading up in just a few years. So we got a 23 footer with slideout, and I bought a heavier than necessary Equal-i-zer hitch (10K capacity) in case we also traded for a larger unit sometime. Ha! We downsized to a 17', and now again to a 16'. I do not miss the 23 footer at all.

The title of this thread makes me want to crack an Anthony Weiner joke....

We saw one of those big tour buses at the Flying Goose Camground in Fairmont, MN but it was filled with Norweegies and we camped next to a guy that was so drunk he couldn't level his truck camper. Must of had a very tolerant wife. Kids wanted to help us set up our pop up camper.

Just got back from great falls montana, and staying in a rv park for 3 days, we were the only fiberglass trailer in the park. The smallest unit there was a 24 foot trailer,boy one sure feels extra proud of our glass trailers when you amongst gaints.

Hi: All...I just looked in Mr. Websters book and the word "Camp" has several meanings from... a childrens vacation spa to... act in a banal unnatural way that is accepted as amusing, or to live away from home in conditions of discomfort or inconvenience!!!
I OTOH think that small is beautiful... in a 5.0 sort of way.

There are only two things that make me want a bigger rig - rain and leaving at least one of our two 135# dogs behind because they don't fit in our 16' Scamp. We bring 2 dogs with us on every trip. One is a 50# Staffordshire Bull Terrier, the other is a 150# Dane. On short trips one of the other two Danes can come with us as long as we don't have to leave the site. Leaving either of those two in the camper unattended would mean returning to a trashed camper. We do get odd looks when we all pile out of the Scamp (my husband is 6'5") from those in the big rigs with their Chis or Yorkies.
