Title: How often do you use your camper (Poll)
Post by: McGirr on May 21, 2014, 06:00:54 PM
Curious to know how often you use your camper, van etc per year per trip. I know this can vary but on average. This is not camping with a swag etc but using what we all have bought.

The poll is to see how often you do individual trips no matter how many nights as most people will do 2 nights to 2 week trips.

Members who are traveling around Australia can vote option 9. (Lucky People)

You can change your vote.

Only had it since October last year - have done 3 trips so far and now planning the 4th which will be the biggest. Other were 'shakedown cruises'.

In September planning to do a 5oookm trip to western vic, southern SA and then to Flinders ranges returning via Broken Hill etc.  Had the camper serviced today to make sure in good order - new bearings, brakes and cables, suspension greased.

How about an option for not nearly enough!

My grand plans were ruined when SWMBO found a job she liked! I was hoping that we might have done a bit of touring when she quit her job and I'd take my long service, perhaps I should have told her that plan! Oh well, we'll get there one day  :D

An estimate would be ok. The poll could have 100 options but its just a guide. Put down what you think would suit you best.

We have had our camper for 5 years, it has not been on more than 20 camp trips - pretty bloody poor realy.
We started off really good and were using it on average once a month, but as the kids become teenagers, everything gets in the way, the kids have weekend jobs that they need to be driven to, there are music practice and concerts.
The camper has not moved since October last year and will not move till October this year....
We reckon we have about 3 years until all the kids can look after themselves - then LOOK OUT!

Last year was just over 130 nights under canvas.
Every 2nd weekend for at least 3 days, usually 4, with a few 10 day trips thrown in.
Would be more if we can rid of this thing called work.

My apologies I should have mentioned its the separate times you use the camper. No matter how many nights you use it.

As mentioned people on the road can vote no 8.

The poll is to see how often you do individual trips.

Travelling Australia at the moment - have set-up/packed-up 43 times in the last 20 weeks, only have another 30 weeks left.
In a normal year we would camp around 10-12 times p.a.

We try and incorporate into the kids sports as well. For example when my boy plays footy at Mullumbimby, we go down Friday arvo and stay at Brunswick Heads or Byron for the weekend.

What a top idea  :cup:

SWMBO only works part time so we always thought we would make our own long weekends and just get out. But we let life get in the way too much. Maybe when the weather starts to improve I'll take a few Mondays off and we'll get out there again.

We would spend 20 plus nights under some sort of canvas a year when not doing a big trip.

Last year we would have spent over 60 nights under canvas....good year last year ;D This year has a long way to go so who knows what big trips may arise ;)

We've used our camper twice a year so far, but we never planned for more than that really.

For a simple week-end away, we use the ol floating camper, as its set-up and ready to roll and we tend to use the terra firma  camper for the time we go to Fraser, which we try for twice a year.

Because of work being season based (Lawnie), the warmer months are too friggin hard to get away on.

Title: Re: How often do you use your camper (Poll)
Post by: Coiled on May 22, 2014, 10:54:03 PM
We (or rather I) aim to get away twice a month with a view to at least getting something every 3-4 weeks at a minimum. Nothing like a Friday & Saturday night camp to feel like you have escaped the rat race.

This year we are doing well! Currently at 9 trips for the year for a total of 16 nights. We are heading away again this weekend so that will see my goal met YTD. Other than 5 nights at Easter it is all weekenders.

Post by: gclan on May 23, 2014, 09:08:39 AM
I'm feeling a little inadequate now :(

We only get away in the camper around 4 times per year, though admittedly, one of those times is usually an iconic one ie: the Kimberley, Uluru, Cape York, the Outback etc... ;D ;D ;D

Post by: Redcherokee on May 23, 2014, 09:27:49 PM
Adding up is too hard. 

When the other half retired, we decided we would go camping every second weekend (inspired by kit e kat).  Didn't quite work out, but we have done a lot of time under canvas.  Less so more recently, but a biggie coming up soon kinda balances it out.

I'm clicking 7 + because a rolling average would be about that.   Reckon there should be brownie points for challenge level - eg Simmo, Cape etc.

I think I have 'lived' so much more since Charles joined the family. It is amazing.

Got the camper in march and done 1 week trip to Renmark, weekend trip to Claire valley and planed a trip Meningie and Robe for October so guessing it will balance out about 5 trips per year.
As we are new to the camper trailer lifestyle I hope as our experience grows we may increase our use.
Happy camping

From the time we bought our first camper trailer appox. 4 years ago until 2013 we were using our camper trailer every 2 weeks.
Unfortunatly we got away from  it for a bit.
Havent used it since Easter 2013.
But she will be back in use in 2 weeks as we have a trip planned.
Hopefully we will be out and about every couple weeks again after that.

We need a "haven't used it but would like to" - we bought our camper Oct 2012 and spent quite some time getting it up to our standard but having a father in hospital with broken artificial knee for several months, daughter away overseas and other family/work dramas/commitments I am sorry to say that we haven't yet used it yet.

Told my husband that if it wasn't used by this October it will be up for sale.  We are hoping to get going later this year!

Not often enough. We've had an 18 month hiatus from the camper, so the 3 weeks we've been in it for the myswag red centre trip has been a good change. It was our youngest first camping trip and he appeared to enjoy it digging in the dirt.

G'day all,

I know we all buy a CT with the best intentions of getting out often and making the most of it. Some can do this, touring Aus and living on the road, or just plenty of jaunts away for a week or so fairly regularly.

Others however manage to squeeze a trip in here and there, despite there best efforts, other stuff makes it a challenge ie; kids, school, sports work rosters and just general family commitments....

Anyway, keen to what the average is..... will run the poll for 60days.

Note; never run a poll before, so unsure if I'm doing this the correct way.

Regards,
Barrabart.

This year has been flat out. All the local dams have dried up too, so no water skiing too.

Since down grading from our 03 Aussie swag to a 01 Jayco dove in january we have been camping more often thus far this year than the previous 2-3 with the AS. prob to do with more space with the 2 young fellas and more comfortable overall, but alas the camping has been more caravan parks than to the outa the way self sufficient areas so far. Also the extra money from downgrading has helped alot as well most likley.

Like many things in life, the things we value most are, ironically, the very things we have to make the time to do.

There is an old rule I used to use when I worked (i'm retired now, but it still applies), "Make time for the things that matter to you, everything else is just noise." Getting out into the bush is important to us, so we make it happen...As the late Stephen Covey said, don't get caught up in the thick of thin things 8)

I hate to hold this particular record but I probably do. We are up to our 4th rego on the CT but it has never been on the back of the bus nor has it been out of the yard . . .  ever, in all that time!
It's up on chocks to help protect the tyres. The 2x120AH batteries get charged when I think they need it.
They were on a panel that is attached to the shed but read it's not good long term).
So the Ritek AGMs too are coming up 4 years old and never powered a toothpick. Shameful.

We bought our 3 dogs CT, 3 years ago as the third owners. Did 6 months around Oz then didn't want to go near it for a year. Now we take it mostly on beach trips twice a year but heading to Fraser in September then Tassie in December. Found some new inspiration here in My Swag and put some love in to the 12 v system this week. Can't wait.

We have had our trailer for 15 years now and use it several times a year. ;D

Best part was retiring as we get to do longer trips in it now. Just returned from a 9 week trip and loved it all. Now we are planning a couple of trips up to the High Country for a week each and we are impatiently waiting for the weather to improve.

We are obviously lucky in that we now don't have kids to worry about (although grandkids keep us at home at times). We have found that we need block out a time on our 'to do' calendar (that has now become a major part of our lives), to be able to get away. If you don't actively plan to go away we find it never seems to happen. When we were working we would usually get a 2 - 3 week trip away in the camper and then a few weekends as well, at least enough time for the camping fix.

I think the survey should ask for the number of nights you use the trailer in lieu of the number of times you use it for the people on longer trips. Just a thought.

Upgraded to a solid wall solid roof hard floor camper trailer and use it twice as often as the soft floor.
Just so much easier on set up and packing no longer spend hours hooking up the home theatre to keep SWMBO happy.
I do miss the camper trailer though
