I've noticed the same advice being given and I just shake my head. We're campers, trying to get out and enjoy nature once in a while. If we wanted all the comforts of home, we wouldn't leave home. To us, being packed into some RV "resort" on a concrete pad, without a tree in sight, isn't what camping is all about - that's why we almost exclusively camp at state parks here in Florida. I guess if your regular home is a run-down single-wide trailer or a ramshackle little house, a nice RV with "all the comforts of home" might actually be better than home, and not looked upon as "camping."
