My wife and family and I have spent most of our vacation time
traveling throughout Canada.
We started from the ground up, with a small "A-frame" tent at first, then a larger canvas family tent,
then to a large "tourist" tent with partitioned rooms, then to a tent-trailer, and finally, once the
children left the nest, to our 1987 VW "Westy" camper van, "3POD".
One of the advantages in traveling with a small camper unit is
that it is easier to go
back and pick up that
perfect photo-op missed while zooming by on the highway. Also, with a smaller unit, one is able to
camp in some places that are just not accessible to a large motor home or "fifth-wheel" trailer.
