We use ours with the idea its not a house on wheels but as a shelter (with benefits) when the weather wants to disagree with us

Today was 68* in middle Tn. After putzing around this morning doing odds and ends outside, we had lunch and I had a big slice of Keylime pie. Went out to the driveway, unlocked the TT and took a nap.

That's how our Swift was used today.
Retirement is good and it makes life great!

As Jaywalker said,we use ours for sleeping and the toilet. We cook,sit,play,eat and entertain outside. The food is in the fridge and the beverages are in the cooler outside(within easy reach). Beer is always better when it is ICE COLD.

We will use ours (as soon as we get it) just like we currently use our B. We are not campers. We don't go to National Forest Service locations to boondock, nor do we go to RV camp grounds, and throw out an anchor for a week at a time.

We boondock at college football weekends, and we use it to travel. We will use camp grounds to park for a day or more, depending on what there is we want to see at the place we happen to be.

We also use it house the dog while we're at the game, etc.

Plus we use it as an escape pod in case of hurricane damage, etc.

We use our's as a cruiser. We used to travel by water, then by land to get to water and launch and now by land to see the areas of this wonderful Country that aren't near water. It's an adventure and our trailer is the facility and shelter to travel and enjoy the blessings we have.

Since it is a teardrop it is only good for sleeping or sitting up in bed to watch a dvd when it is late. Even if it is raining and cold I find something to do outside. Basically the easiest tent to set up and off the ground.

Ours is parked at our land at the lake in the county south of us. We use it as a weekend home. Hope one day to build there. So it is our home away from home, 30 miles away.

We use ours as a mobile hotel room. It's nice to visit places and have some amenities. We probably spend more time outside, meals are 50/50.
