I started with a tent, I've owned overhead campers, tent trailers and travel trailers, currently I have a travel trailer, tent trailer and 3 tents, It all depends on where I'm going but I still love the tent, nothing feels as good to me.

There it is not buried in the snow. I prefer that hammock though.

My REI 2 person tent that cost 2x the Coleman is a much better tent though - superior construction, easier to set up, better design, and lighter.

And finally, why a tent not an RV? No roads here, this shot was taken about 15 miles from a road.

Sure, you could park your RV somewhere, drive to the trail head, park, hike 30 miles, drive back to the RV and sleep, but IMHO that's silly.
I see a hang in that group.
