That’s a great question. Car-camping, to me, is about kicking back and having as much fun as you can. RVs have all the amenities, but those folks end up spending a good amount of time inside, watching TV. But the folks with tents—a different story! They’re outside, sitting around campfires, toasting marshmallows, having a fine time.
Car-camping is even more fun with the right equipment. These choice items define the luxury of not having to carry all your gear on your back.
