We avoid cold but have been trapped for a couple of weeks at 20F or so.

Camped this past weekend at Curry Hammock State Park near Marathon, FL. Late afternoon temp was over 100 degrees, it didn't stop us but slowed us down. Thank goodness for the comfort of A/C and Reflectix in the windows.
Camped last winter at Ochlockonee State Park in N. Florida with a low of 26 degrees. We had no heat, just piled on more layers of clothes. Pipes in the campground bath-house froze. Purchased a small electric heater after that trip!
DH and I both agree our comfort level is much greater in the Scamp with high/low extreme temps than we would have been in a tent !

We have never had a too-warm day for camping, although it gets up a bit over 30C (86 F) for a few weeks in the summer (and last weekend) up here in the Great White North. As long as it warms up to a reasonably nice day in the daytime, say 10C (50F) then we don't mind going below freezing at night since we have a furnace. Many spring and fall days have temps well below freezing at night, but nice in the daytime. Once the temperature barely gets above freezing in the daytime, we call it a season until next spring.

More important for me is rain. I don't like camping in the rain, and will often wimp out if the forecast is for rainy days.

I'm with Rick. I don't have much fun when it rains hours/days on end. I've camped when it hit 105 degrees at night and down below freezing (unhook the hose bib!), but those were DRY temps. I find it hard to have a roaring campfire when it's raining and even if I can get the fire going who wants to sit around it?

Even though I never get to go camping, it's easy to add a small heater and you can always add more clothes but you can only take off so many clothes.

"but you can only take off so many clothes..." ...before you get arrested. Well, unless the CG is empty or I suppose if you stay in the trailer. I've had a couple of those empty-CG experiences this hot summer. Kinda liberating...

I'm not much for camping below 35 or 40 degrees, and if it's going to freeze I'm staying home. Above 90 degrees is discouraging, but with the AC it's do-able. I've camped when the high was over 110*, mostly because it was necessary to get to or from someplace else where it was cooler.

Over 100 I don't like but I still go and I have camped down to -20 F. I don't think any thing stops me.

Hot and humid 90 gets to me (no ac) but is livable if there's a tree for shade, and a cooler night. Dont' want it much below 50, well maybe 45 if there's some hot buttered rummmmm nearby. Or hot chocolate with cinnamon schnapps

Since I only use my trailer for going to events of interest to me, the weather is not really an issue - unless it interferes with the event itself. Never done any COLD weather camping but really, really, really hot weather makes sleeping impossible unless I can plug in and run the A/C. (Wish I had brought a generator for running the A/C when I was at Bonneville in August! When it only "cooled down" to about 95*F at night - not good at all!)
