      Campers have tanks and batteries. They can usually function for atleast a few days on their own. Solar panels help, Though if you want to run the 120/240v plugs youll need to fire up a generator, 0therwise you need to use 12v stuff.

      Also, depending on the type you have, and how rough you're willing to get with it, you can actually take them on some fairly hairy terrain, truck campers anyways.
      You do not have to camp at designated spots/parks.

          Satellite tv recievers, atlest the ones we had were 12volt so could be run just on the trailers batteries. small televisions can also be obtained as 12v.
          Many other things aswell can potentially run at the lower voltage, like laptops, that typically use a transformer on the cable to step down the voltage, you need a different cable.
          ofc running all that shit is a good way to just drain your batteries if you dont have a good solar setup. A key aspect of camping in these things (without hookups) is greatly limiting your use power, water etc, if you expect to stay out for more than just a couple days.

        A ton of people who climb and go trail running use RV’s (generally vans) because they’re not camping in the trail. Cyclists as well. They campout in their RV, spend the day climbing or running or cycling (or whatever), then go back to their van. Do you think mountain climbers, trail runners, and cyclists are morbidly obese?

        Not every trip is an extreme hardcore backwoods survivalist adventure, but you can keep pretending.

      if you're at a park campsite like that then why not stay in an RV? it's not like you're roughing it even if you're in a tent, you're in a crowded and maintained campground with services and amenities. tents are objectively less comfortable than RVs. people who go to state/national park campgrounds are usually looking for a relaxing and comfortable vacation, and that's why they bring comfortable air conditioned RVs instead of tents.

        if you are at any campsite easily accessible with an RV its going to be crowded as frick and noisey, full of annoying ass children and drunk boomers so you effectively need a RV at night to drown out all the fricking banging around and shit and weird noises at night. a tent youre gonna hear every last fricking sound people make.

    You can't set up a tent in a city, but you often can park your camper, especially if it's a smaller one. It's a great way of traveling to foreign countries if you're in Europe, but want to save money on hostels and have more freedom of movement.

    If area you're in is safe, then it would also make sense to travel by a camper 95% of the way, park it and go for a 2-3 days long hike from there (since you can't drive it into a forest) and come back to your camper to get washed, change your clothes and so on.

    Camper could be your portable hotel, perfectly placed near any trails you'd like to explore by foot.

    I actually go /out for a purpose. I hunt and feed my family unlike you larpers who just go look at trees and mountains lol

    I used to be a tentgay and talked shit about RV as well. But the tent has way too many issues especially when hunting. I'm not talking about backpacking tents, but wall tents at base camp. I still use my backpacking tent which is more of a bivy if Im on some elk.

    Hunting out a tent, I found that Its very difficult to keep anything dry once wet. It's difficult to heat, wood stoves require stoking all night, propane heaters are a moist heat and doesn't last long plus you have to lug 20lb tanks with you, diesel heaters seem cool but that's another piece of gear to carry, plus diesel. Safety is also a concern, last year at elk camp, we had a grizzly walk by our tent at night, sniffing around. We had our 10mm's on us, and kept our food 100y away, but still it's not cool knowing you have 1mm of canvas between you and a grizz.

    Having to shit and/or piss outside in freezing temp is miserable as well.

    Lastly, tent plus all the gear, coolers, etc take up all the room in my truck's bed. Makes it a pain to pack and unpack camp. I'm also hauling dirt bikes,.which increases the difficulty of Tetris required to fit everything. Moving camp took forever, not what you want when you're hunting.

    So I bought a toy hauler RV. I can fit all my gear, dirt bikes, side by side, ATV whatever makes sense for my hunt. I have a heater, AC, bathroom,.shower with 100g tank. I don't need to keep my food prep 100y away, I can just cook inside. Piss inside at night, shit in a nice warm toilet. Be nice and warm in the morning, make some coffee and oats, get dressed,.go outside, hop in whatever toy I brought and hit the trail head for my hunt. It boosts morale, increases my performance in the field.

    If the spot isn't good, I just put away anything loose, put my toy(s) inside, hook up my truck and haul it to another spot.

    Problem?

          spending shitloads of money on camping gear, hunting rifles, bet he has a months income worth of camo clothing as well, probably taking weeks off work, to go hunting, yeah thats a hardcore larp and nothing wrong with it. im no stranger to hunting culture i know exactly how it is.
          and frick yes if he cared about feeding his family working overtime the same amount of hours he hunted and not spending money on all that gear would feed his family for a year.

                I was unaware that people got killed, skinned and eaten during medieval LARP gatherings. You'd think they'd be more popular.

    I'm looking for a camper to live in. I can't afford rent but I can afford a budget camper. Not for camping. Any advice?

    when I was 14 in the scouts I loved tent camping. these days I have a bad back. I would still like to be somewhat out but also able to move the next day. this is why I rent a cabin. Frick those shitbox trailers. they are poorly made landfill bait designed for poors.

    It's not camping. It's a cottage. But one you can move around if you want to or have to.

    well, originally they were for people who wanted to do long range trips. Like, you take the rv to a camp site then use it as a field base to do fishing and hunting in the surronding wildlands.

    then they became a
    >dude its totally a house you can save so much money by buying this bro trust me

    which turned into
    >lol u arent poor are you, buy the extra delux model and live like a king around all the tent peasents

    which turned into
    >goyim, sell your property to me, your friend goldberg. i will give you pennies on the dollah and then sell you this magical space age moving house which is something you deserve, its just like your favorite childhood cartoons but real. your grandchildren are complaining? just take them on a trip or two just like your parents use to do in the 60s
