European Camping

This past summer my wife and I made it over to Europe for the first time. We discovered that camping in Europe seems to be quite popular as most camp grounds we passed seemed full. Below are a few photos that I captured along our journey up the Rhine river and during onshore excursions. If you look very closely in one of the photos you'll even see a GMC pickup parked next to a 5th wheel.

I asked one of our tour guides about the popularity of camping and they informed me that some retired folks are full-timing in their RV's to escape the high cost of apartment rent in the large cities.

Another thing I noticed the RV's are not as large as they are here in the states. I can see why with the price of gas around $7 per gal. (approximate conversion) you wouldn't want to be towing a large RV.

Tom, thanks for sharing that.
When the Thor forum was in it's infancy, there was a influx of members joining that were from the UK. We also have some on this forum from Australia. So I guess camping is popular all over.

Brings back a memory, Frank. After 23 hours of travel time, I cleared customs at the Sydney airport and went out to the cab stand for a ride to my hotel. The driver put my luggage in the trunk and I proceeded to walk around to get in what in the U.S> is the right side front passenger seat. The taxi driver asked me "Are you going to drive, mate?" It was then I remembered that they drive on the "other" side down under. I blamed jet lag!
