So what have you done to make your camper/tent home, your home? Some probably dont care as much as others, but for those that are particular, how do you make your campsite or rig as "homey" as possible?
We had a camper bus so we decorated the inside with a bright red and white tablecloth and curtains. Inside were 4 sleeping compartments. So each one had our sleeping bags and pillows on them. That was about all the room we had in there. But my favorite thing was sitting in the bunk while Dad was driving. I was so peaceful when he was driving. It was a home away from home.
We have redecorated our camper to make it like a cabin... green and tan checkered curtains.. painted tan walls... and we have hung deer pictures and a big picture of a brittney spaniel and a grouse... since its just me and my wife I have taken out the dinnette and put in a recliner... where the understorage was from the dinette to the outside I put in a intable with the back open to the wall so I still have the outside storage going in to the intable... it works great...
I think that decorating your camper does help it feel more "homey". I think when I was younger I brought less on a camping trip. But now I am older and I would like more comforts with me. I like having my pillows, extra food, and extra clothes. When I was camping with my Dad I always ran out of things first. I had two brothers and no sisters so they couldn't share the clothes.:comfort_:
I don't have a camper, so I actually try to make my tent feel like home!
I use vanilla plug in air fresheners at home, and I have a vanilla body spray that I spray on the sleeping bags before I toss them in the drier as we are getting ready to leave to freshen them up before we take them camping. When we get there, and roll the sleeping bags out, it smells like home!!!
