Tent camping is not even in the same ballpark as RVing. It takes a special kind of person to stay in a tent. Modern RVs are now pretty much just like small homes on wheels. Tents now days are pretty much just like well tents. Living in a tent is not unlike hanging a sheet over a tree and calling it home.
One of the obvious problems with camping in a tent is how impervious it is to inclement weather. Tents leak. Some more than others, but water will always find its way into a tent. You may not get soaked. Your air mattress may not even float off the floor. But following any good stiff rain all your stuff will definitely have that damp musty feel.
Another challenge to tent camping is finding a place for all your stuff. Unlike a RV you really don’t have any closets or cabinets to store things in. Other than a Tenter’s cell phone which you will most likely find hanging out of the electrical hookup box, the rest of a Tent Camper’s stuff can only be kept in 3 places. The places are: the tent, a pile on the picnic table or just to keep things in the car. Your tent will only hold so much. The table is exposed to the weather. So that leaves your vehicle as your primary source to keep your valuables.
This leads me to my next subject. Tent campers tend to be a noisy bunch. I can’t blame them personally, it comes with the territory. Due to the lack of insulation in the construction of most tents, noise tends to travel outside the walls of a tent. In other words, what happens in a tent doesn’t necessarily stay in a tent. Also remember what I said about Tenter’s keeping most of their stuff in their vehicles? So if you have ever camped next to a Tent Camper you will agree that the sound of car doors slamming 24 hours a day can become extremely annoying.
