Frequency of camping!
« on: July 23, 2019, 03:19:19 PM »
My experience has been couple of times a year - say 3 to 4, but with tents.  Now that I am transitioning from tenting to pop(ing) up camping :), I want to do more.  But reality maybe different :(.  I understand someone who is retired or have extra time can potentially camp more often than others but hopefully this will give me some idea how often you folks are camping :).

I also understand one year you may be able to do 4 and another year either more or less.  Just pick a number that you think would best represent number of times you camped on a typical year.

Lastly, also the number of days can vary widely - it can be from 2 days to 5 or more, and folks who are out for more days may do less camping. So, it is what it is :).

Thanks all!

I don't know how to answer the question. I hung up the keys 7 years ago so it should be 0 days. However I have parked it permanently in an RV and I live in it full time. So I guess I could say 365 days. Take your pick.

We used to tent camp 6 weekends a year. When we got the pop-up, we extended those trips and would do 6 5 or 6 night trips instead. I've also used our pop up for more extensive trips, weeks at a time going down the east coast a couple times. So that counts as one trip, but it would be 3 weeks long. Now we have a TT that we go to every other weekend.

I answered 7-9 as the number of RV trips I took in the last 12 months, which is a little lower than the preceding 2 years, and a lot shorter on total days with the longest trip in the last year being about 2 weeks, and the shortest being 3 or 4 days.   Total days per year in 2017 and 2018 were right around 75 days per year in the coach total, but still averaged 7-9 total trips, they were just longer trips on average.

If you count since January, we've done probably 8 so far. But if you count July 31 to July 31, it'll be 1 lol, unless you count each destination (separate campground or RV park)as a separate camping trip, then it would probably be closer to 50 lol
