If you consider yourself a highly enthusiastic camper, then you must have a habit of imagining yourself deep in the forests, setting up the camp and cooking raw meat over an open fire for a week or so. Well, the feeling of living alone or with a group of campers in the jungle is truly an amazing one.

You have imagined the way you are going to spend your camping trip, but there are some alternative choices as well. In this article, we are going to discuss the pros and cons of the most popular camping choices and what makes them so popular.

The alternative chosen by a camper depends entirely up to his/her style, gear/equipment owned and the experience of camping.

RV Camping

PROS

The full form of RV is Recreational Vehicle, and RV camping is probably the easiest way of camping. Unlike normal cars, RVs are quite spacious, and people often call them ‘hotel on wheels’ because they are equipped with a wide range of luxurious items that one would find in a hotel.

The facility such as making food in kitchen, bathing under the shower and watching TV make RVs a popular choice for the campers.

It also protects the camper at the time when a wild animal has gone berserk or the weather conditions are undesirable. RV campers always have an edge over other campers in terms of comfort and luxury.

People can camp with all the belongings, which is an extremely important thing because many campers have told stories how had not been able to gather all their possessions.

The chances of leaving anything behind becomes nil when a person is camping along with his/her RV. Moreover, the bad weather won’t be able to damage the belongings.

CONS

There are certain drawbacks with RVs that, they are quite expensive, so everybody can’t afford them. Moreover, they won’t let you take the feeling of the nature to that extent, which you would have received in the absence of the RV.

Going for a camping trip in an RV is considered as playing safe. Camping is about taking risks, so if you are going in a highly advanced automobile, then you won’t be able to enjoy the wilderness of the forest.

Backpacking

PROS

This can provide you with one of the most adventurous and thrilling experiences as a camper, but it depends upon your ideas how wild do you want to take it.

You have the option of going deeper into the woods and spending the night in the remote area of the jungle, though the jungle is itself a remote area, but you can find a place where nobody could think of spending a night. Backpacking allows you to get closer to the nature. The main motive of backpacking is to explore the raw and wild nature at your own speed.

There are no rules and regulations, so you can pace up your trip according to your own comfort. You need to make sure that you have the right gear and enough supplies to get you going for the time till you are in the woods.​

CONS

People get trapped in a sticky situation in the wake of seeing the raw and wild nature, so you have to be careful while trying something new. Don’t do anything at the cost of your life, as it would be totally insignificant.

Backpacking involves all the stuff packed in a bag and put on the back, so you have to make sure that your bag only contains the important things and no extras.
