Had to go with "Other", as our most recent camping experience has been with one of these:

Fibreglass, yet a tent and kinda sleeping ON your vehicle rather than in it. Nocturnal trips to go potty, involving clambering down a ladder, didn't sit well with the "significant other", however, and the pooch can't climb ladders.

I looked at those online, was quite intrigued, but couldn't figure out how the corgis were going to get up there!

Barb and I started backpacking back in 1961, into the Teton back country. Since then, many good miles in the Gros Ventres, Wind Rivers, Bighorns, Yellowstone, Yosemite, Maroon Bells, etc. Also many long canoe trips through the Quetico and Boundary Waters wilderness areas, ski mountaineering in the huts above Ashcroft CO, glacier climbing on Gannet Peak, snow caving in the Absarokas, etc.

When we got too old for that sort of thing, we settled on a fiberglass egg as the next best way to see the country.

Although a tent camper back in the early 60's with my folks in the 70's became an avid back-packer and an accident in the late 70's left me with a broken hip.
This did not stop me from back-packing until the late 90's and in 05 had a total hip replacement.
Hiked and slept under the stars uless wet weather was iminent and often wondered why I carried the 7lb tent if I wasn't going to use it much but it did come in handy during a snow storm in Sept.

- Backpacked . . . . . until my legs gave out

- Kayak camped . . . . . until I got a dog

- Car Camped in a 20yr old VW Westfalia . . . . until I got the second dog, got tired of traveling in the SW with no air conditioning, spending my camping time fixing and renovating the old VW.

- Got the Honda Pilot, sold the VW, bought the Escape . . . . Me and the hounds traveling in wonderful air-conditioned splendor and camping in maintenance free luxury (need an emoticon of me in lounge chair with an iced-drink)
