I think that there really isn't any (or very little) class envy going on regards Tenting vs. RV'ing. It's more to do with age. The older you get, the less you're interested in roughing it with a backpack.

Years ago, I was getting ready for another backpacking trip on the Pacific Crest Trail. Bought my food, filled up my camp stove, checked the tent in the back yard, the whole nine yards. Next morning at 5AM, got dressed in my hiking clothes, swung on the backpack and stepped on the scale. 60lbs of gear. 4 day trip over country as beautiful as you can find.

Stepped off the scale, walked into the living room, swung the backpack off, and sat in my easy chair. Backpack sat there for a week.

I've never gone on another overnight backpacking trip. I'd just had enough. You get to a certain age, and travel and camping is still interesting, but many would just rather do it in an RV of some kind. I'll stick to my RV from now on. Day packing I still do. But no overnight tenting.

Those youngsters who still tramp around the wild for days at a time are still enjoying it, and think that we're being lazy. Not so. Just disinterested in doing what I did for 15 years.

In other words, no need to apologize.

JMO.

I don't feel bad at all and I don't envy those with the really nice rigs. We have and enjoy what we have.

What makes you think you have more stuff or more money or are having more fun than the guy next to you in the tent or what ever?

I find we are all just campers having fun. I find all campers rather helpful and the fun and helpfulness is not associated with the stuff keeping the rain off their heads.

what's to appologize for? so you like your amenities. it's your lifestyle. if someone tries to put the guilt trip on you, shame on them.

You have what YOU want and what YOU can afford. My DW and I worked our butts off for many years to get to this point. Like most we started out years ago with a $200.00 used Pop up. Watch all the new motor homes pulling into the campgrounds, and would say, Yep someday that's going to be us!!

After many years of hard work, now it is!! Do I feel guilty? Hell no!
We are living the American dream IMHO.
