Taking a camping car on your family summer vacation is a practical way to have a camping experience without having to drag everything around in packs. It represents a balance between roughing it - getting up close and personal with nature, sleeping in a pitched tent and making your own fires, and the fully-outfitted cabin on the campground or the huge RV. These vehicles are towed behind a car. They are more comfortable for sleeping, and they can go where there are no motels.

The focus of days and your energy is more toward recreational interests - sightseeing, hiking and fishing. There are campgrounds located near most national forests, beaches and other major attractions. Better yet, car camping is easy to do anywhere around the world. The number of travel agent camping specialists is growing annually.

Depending on the type of vehicle you choose, you can have a luxurious experience, or you can forego the modern conveniences you take for granted, like reliable hot water and air conditioning. In theory, a camping car checklist can contain a basic version of everything you have back home. In that case, you are merely relocating. But only you and your family can decide on a comfort level which makes the experience a distinct departure from normal life and boosts the meaning of the trip. There are checklists on line to help assemble the basics needed for the adventure. If you've never camped around before, why not take an overnight dry run to see if you are outfitted adequately and whether the family likes it?

The weather is not always cooperative. While you're stocking up on cooking, bedding and cleaning supplies, remember to include activities for rainy days inside the camper. Be sure and bring along your camping rocking chair on your next trip. It is so great to sit out underneath the stars and rock in your chair.

By now, it should be dawning that a camping adventure is also a nifty test of organizational skills. It's the forgotten little things you keep running to the nearest store to pick up that wear you out on a trip. So do the homework up front. When you get deeply involved in the planning, the imagination and creativity take over, and the fresh experiences you are looking for will start happening. One way to keep everything together and organized is to keep everything in one place. That way when you are ready to go on your trip you just have to go to one place and you got everything you need.
