What are you. I am more of a traveller than a Camper. I prefer to be on the move all the time. If I want to be camping it would be with out hook ups and for a few days only,Hook ups would be used only when I had to stay in one place for a resonable long time. I consider a Rver to be one who has a RV but stays at hook ups only.

What type are you?

We're happy to dry camp at a national park "primitive" site and use our trailer as a home-base with heat and indoor plumbing, and can stay put for days until our grey or black holding tanks fill. We've hauled off to places with full hookups and used our trailer like a hotel room with a kitchenette and microwave while we go sightseeing. What we don't tend to do is stay put for weeks at a time, though we may find ourselves ding just that now and then when we retire.

We boondock, roughing it, we go to an area we want to really explore, set up home base then go everywhere exploring an area thoroughly, we are self contained in our tiny trailer.

Haven't figured that out yet. We're relatively new to RVing and still discovering different things. So far ...

We've traveled over 8000 miles picking up the only two travel trailers we've owned. All of this in the course of one year. The adventure and experience of trying something new was fun. On the other hand we spent a couple of days in an RV resort near Yuma and hated it. Boring. We also set up camp (boondocked) a few times in Anza Borrego State Park and had a great time. I especially liked sitting by a campfire at night and reading a book under a Coleman lantern. The daily hikes were great too. The only other outings were for a weekend at a County park and Santee Lakes, which is a campground run by a local water district. The County park was nothing special but strangely enough Santee Lakes was fun. I enjoyed watching the families have so much fun.

As long as I'm out, it's all good. I'll be just as happy hauling the camper, or sleeping under the stars (mosquito's are much less bother in the camper). Hookup's, or not. Getting out is what it's all about.

Not so much a RVer, seldom full hook-ups here. Dry camping mostly, like public campgrounds, nat'l forest, parks, state parks and wal-marts while traveling or some free site if possible.
Free & Low Cost Campgrounds

Much like Peter stated, "We're happy to dry camp at a national park "primitive" site and use our trailer as a home-base with heat and indoor plumbing, and can stay put for days until our grey or black holding tanks fill. We've hauled off to places with full hookups and used our trailer like a hotel room with a kitchenette and microwave while we go sightseeing.

Seldom with full hookups, happy with electric & water. Wanting to do more in place camping now that we are retired. But with grandkids in other places, we have yet to much of it.

We are planning to do it all. Our first trip was to a place with full hookups (Scottsdale for Cactus League games - Yes, again this Feb. or March ).

We are boondocking in a Forrest Service campground for all of next week.

The future, this spring, will be a ramble across the country SW - SE - DC - Home? It will be a combination of dry camping and an occasional RV park stop to empty tanks, wash cloths and recharge.

That describes me exactly, too! Kindred spirits, perhaps?

I just spent a few days near you in Grand Prairie, Alberta, a short time ago, towards the end of July. Beautiful area, weather was nice and cool-well, for me, at least, although most locals were complaining of the heat.

For us, our EggCamper is a portable aptment. Instead of going sightseeing and heading home the same day, we can sleep over at our destination and spend the full weekend away. Also we can go away for a week or two, not worry about our dogs, not worry about bed bugs in hotel rooms, the high cost of hotel rooms, or eating out every meal. In short it's our "Eggscape capsule", we can go where we want, when we want at an affordable price .

A little of everything but primarily for my work/hobby of Chuck Wagon cooking.

we use our bigfoot for all types of camping and traveling.. When we are home we are constantly coming up with reasons to go use it. Whether it be for dry camping, full hookups, ralleys, family reunions or going to motocross races
