Which style of RVing do you prefer?

  • Alone - immediate family)?
  • In a group of friends or RV club?
  • A mix of both?

Sometimes alone, most times with wife. We socialize spur of the moment, but do not travel with groups, but sometimes meet up with others at time-place. We are a 4x4 truck camper so often go where many RV's cannot as easily reach, and camp in smaller sites or boon-dock.

Mix of both.

I love camping alone
I also like to camp in small groups of friends and family.

I prefer to travel with friends. I have quite a few friends with rvs. Two other couples in particular like to travel south in the winter with me. My other friends like to camp in summer closer to home. The more the merrier I say. I have never been the "my camper only sleeps two" type. We have in the past, used my rv for travelling to gigs for our music. It wouldn't be unusual to have eight or nine people travelling in the rv. Of course, they cant all sleep in there, but at least six did. I often have a full house camping. I like it that way.

We prefer to travel alone, on our own pace and routes.

Camping or traveling around the world, we prefer to be by ourselves and not subject to a group decision as to
"what's next, where to...?"

Mixed. Even when we travel with a larger group we don't necessarily travel or stop together. Only thing set is the final destination.

If I know the group that is great. If I do not I camp with just the family or solo. I have thin tolerance for loud drunk people late at night

My wife and I have a friend that constantly wants to travel with us. He wants to leave together, sightsee together, stop for gas, everything. My problem with him is that he does not get up until 9 or 10, spends a couple of hours getting ready to leave and then takes 45 minutes to get gas.
My wife and I wake up before 6 on our days off, take our time eating and packing up and gone by 7:00. Our gas stops are always under 15 minutes. It is easy to see that this would never work out.
