If you use your own equipment, and not “renting”, but reside in a nice, self-contained unit.....is it camping or glamping?

After listening to my wife read about “glamping”.....I discovered that we may have been “glamping” since the ‘60’s! [emoticon] What say you?

If your tent is made of modern synthetics rather than animal skins.....are you “glamping”?

Where does it all end? Someone help me, I am confused! [emoticon]

We do not camp we travel. We do so in our motorhome and use it as our hotel room. We don't like NASCAR or fires creating obnoxious smoke. We dine out a lot. We like state and federal parks. Have no use for swimming pools or playgrounds. Abhor others forcing their choice of music (noise) upon us. Really don't care what your religion is and do not want to meet Jesus.

We enjoy conversations and pot lucks but do not adhere to right-wing politics and absolutely don not care if a woman has an abortion that is none of my business.

Our dogs are well kept and we pick up after them. If others were as cognizant of their children's messes it would be wonderful.

If you are carrying your own bed, bathroom, living room, and kitchen it is glamping. But I have no problem with that. [emoticon]

Well we went from a tent to a 5th wheel, but also from a weekend camper to full time. We no longer consider ourselves campers we're RVers. If having a washing machine, dishwasher, satellite dish and other amenities of a S&B's is what you call glamping, l guess we do.

We consider our 24 foot Class C motorhome as an insulated, weather-proof, heated, cooled, mobile tent that has two permanent queen beds, a refrigerator, a 3-burner stove top, an oven, a table, two sinks, a shower, a toilet, tanks for liquids, and lot of storage volume.

As such, we consider each trip in our mobile tent as a potential mini-expedition in our poor-man's expedition vehicle. We prefer taking it out to nature-based areas as opposed to areas involving around human habitation ... however we do visit both types of places. Do we camp or glamp? I don't know.

a non-camping buddy of mine used to day his idea of roughing it was a Holiday Inn with no HoliDome or one with black and white TV.

In conversation, we call it camping. Calling it anything else just turns into an unnecessary discussion of the differences. Even though I am disgusted by how spoiled all of us have become.

Thank You for your answers! But, with no apparent, absolute answers..... I guess that we’re simply RV’rs , without all the unnecessary descriptive adjectives!
