Other than Burning Man, there has never been a time when I wanted to use an RV. I live for tent camping. I love backcountry camping, festival camping, campground camping, etc. My gf & I do huge road trips all the time & basically live out of a Prius & a small tent. In fact, the only times I've ever rented RVs were for the playa
But I still feel a bit "guilty" about it. Probably because I've heard so many people rant against them and have internalized some of it.
Maybe I will have to let that go with next year's temple burn. =P

Some can afford it so why not? Worrying about how to fix some one else's experience to fit yours is so far removed from what this event is about.

As far as I can tell, that whole stretch was "wall of rvs" camp. I'd say if you are going to register a theme camp, you should do something with it, rather than walling up a compound.

Token wrote:A few points on why I won't go to TTITD without my travel trailer:
1. I get to use my own bathroom.
2. Refrigerator, freezer and microwave.
3. AC when I want/need it.
4. Vast noise reduction compared with any tent/carport/dome thingy.
5. Camp is set up in ~ ten minutes.
I did the tent stuff for four years and the trailer for six. Not going back to tent.
The CO wrote:My gripe is with camps that register in order to get the prime real estate, and then create the RV compound with little or no camp, theme, or interaction with their neighbors or other citizens on the street frontage.
