Wikipedia describes glamping as a combination of “glamor and camping with the amenities.” It is usually associated with tent style of camping and in some cases retro style RVs. My definition of glamping is more for the “average Joe.” For us, it is an RV, trailer or motorhome, with flush toilets, bath and showers, hot and cold running water, a fully functioning kitchen with at least one bedroom. Prices for this type of new home on wheels may run from $15,000 to hundred’s of thousands of dollars. Within a few minutes we were set up with all of the amenities of home, albeit smaller.
During our first trip we stayed at KOA’s. They are all different, but also have basic minimum standards. One had a beautiful pool, offered live entertainment in the evening and a pot-luck every Tuesday. The same venue had shuttle service to the honkey tonk district of Nashville. All had many amenities for outdoor games, snack bar, easy access and friendly people.
I captured some of the RVs that were in the campsites where we stayed.
