Due to the current situation we find ourselves in as well as some family health issues we haven't gone camping at all this year.
I have had the itch and finally decided there was a way to scratch it. I brought the Aristocrat home and we did some driveway camping.
Can't call it camping without s'mores!
I've done some curbside camping in my cars. It was fun and gratifying to know what it's like to be independent of rental property and bills
Wow! Even your canopy has air conditioning!
I can't call it camping if you're getting hotel power from your house!
Reminds me of the last time I went to Tahuya, all the freaking RVs there that night were full-on glamping! I mean flatscreens, sat dishes, you name it, they had it! Me, on the other hand, had my tent, air mattress and Mac Tools cooler full of beer and ice. Luckily it has wheels, otherwise it would've been a back breaker to move.
Been a while since I've added anything to this thread. But when I saw this photo this morning I thought it was too neat not to share:
Hil & Gasaway Automotive Passenger Trailers, located in Lincoln Ill, certainly knew that an eye-catching tow vehicle would attract prospects under their show tent. The car they choose appears to be a Chrysler “Airflow Custom Imperial” four-door sedan or a limousine.
The travel trailer was first manufactured in 1929 by scientist and inventor Arthur G. Sherman’s Covered Wagon Company of Detroit, MI. The firm continued to produce trailers until WWII, when it converted its operation to construct truck cargo bodies. At the end of the war, the factory was leased to Ironrite Ironer Company, and the firm ended operations.

Interestingly, Hil & Gasaway used the name “Automotive Passenger Trailers” for its business. This was a time before passengers were prohibited from riding in trailers due to safety reasons.
I'm planning to try to rent an RV or travel trailer soon. I already tried doing camping using my SUV though. I had a Smittybilt overland tent installed before. It was an interesting and good experience to help me adjust to trying out the trailer life.
