We use the RV as a "Home Base". Surprizingly, We've found that having an RV along has made a big difference with comfort zones and young mom's who've never been camping before. I was a BSA scoutmaster (and I'm still a UC here in San Antonio) so "real" out door camping is something I know quite a bit about. Be ing Prepared is what it's all about, and thats what we teach. Getting a Mom or young Dad to be comfortable out in the woods is turning into almost a "calling for us. Obviously they don't stay inside. but the toilet is always clean, and available until the comfort zone is established. Surprizingly, once they've had a chance to spend a successful night in tent, they rarely want anything to do with the motorhome (even the Mom's). Of course we almost always dry camp and I wont use the AC unless I have to for an over-heat emergency. The whole point is self sufficiency. The real surprise is how many Mom's and Dad's have never camped before, I'm from the Pac. N.W. and the Texas climate is a walk in the park compared to the rain and wind up there, I guess camping is just not a priority. Oh, and my wife and daughter want you to know we have all sizes from Daisies on up to Seniors. They run their Girl Scout troop like a Boy Scout Troop. The outing was a total success with 113 total in attendance, and we stayed at "By the River" RV park in Kerrville, it was absolutely fantastic, the kids were in water all day and for an entry level camping experiance the parents had a great time.
Spent my youth working on RV's with my Dad. I'm just coming back to them now and found my child hood was not a total waste.
