What is FGRV to you?

Is it a "travel trailer" or a "camper"? What is the difference? To me the difference is - are you traveling/exploring in your FGRV (your're moving to the next night stop/campground daily or every few days) or camping (staying on the same campground for a week or more)? I'm traveling, what do you do?

We have done both in the past, and will continue to mix it up!

We don't travel as much as I would like to,but when we do we take the RV
On the other hand,we do go camping ,a lot,and for that we take the camper

I guess for us it kind of depends on how I load it,traveling calls for different kinds of cloths( dress up,good stuff) as well as different style of cooking( more like cooking at home in my kitchen) When camping we do ALL of our cooking outside and wear sloppy, outside type cloths or swimsuits to kayak in

Happy Camping or RVing to all

I have always thought of them as, and called them, travel trailers. Campers to me are the the things you put on a truck bed. But in the area where I now live (OK), most folks refer to just about any RV as a camper. Sorta like some parts of the country where any soft drink is a 'coke'.

I've wondered about that.
So, when you want a Coke, what do you ask for?

Our Scamp13 is a Travel Trailer. It's size makes it ideal for the purpose of travel. As trailers get larger they become less suited to actual travel and more suited to staying in one place for longer periods after the chore of towing it there.
I have a friend who has a huge fifthwheel and a diesel truck he does longer term destination vacations with it, but has never done any touring(tourist) travel with it. It is just too large.

See, here's the thing about little fibreglass trailers: they're versatile.
We've travelled as well as done the snowbird thing in our little 13. Heck, there are people living in 13's. (In that case they would be "trailer houses." )

and a little rum :-P

RV= Recreational Vehicle..it encompasses ALL types. RV dealerships, motor vehicle depts (Along with other gubmint agencies) and, unfortunately, Home Owner Associations generally use this term as generic.

Camper (Or truck camper) = That thing in your truck bed that you can take out and sit somewhere..or not, depending on your preferences.
Pop up Trailer = that hybrid canvas thing with beds and stuff that sits on a trailer frame.
Travel Trailer, or Trailer Coach = That crunchy sided thing with beds and stuff that sit on a trailer frame. (Includes Teardrops) Can sometimes be a hard sided Pop Up, like an Aliner, or not, depending on where you are.

ARE WE GETTING CONFUSED YET?

Motor Home (Or Motor Coach) = That big box that sits on, and is permanently attached to a motor driven chassis. Motorhomes have their OWN categories.. Class A and B, B+, C and "other" depending on someones imagination. Buses are Class As'. Some class Bs (Van conversions) are simply motor vehicles, depending on how they are titled..a "Ford" VS a "Carefree" etc.

No wonder DMV employees (And former RV Dealership Title Clerks like me) are grumpy.

They are ALL RVs. Just RVs.
