What’s The Best Way To Camp Tastefully?
We’ve been featuring off-road, overland, and off-the-road machines since Petrolicious started, and often those vehicles will be endowed with some sort of practical considerations for camping. This made us wonder: what’s the best way to “camp tastefully”—using vintage machines, of course.
I’d be less inclined to go camping regularly if I had to pile everything into an old Winnebago (as cool as they look) or ride a motorcycle into the middle of nowhere and spend the night using only a blanket and sleeping roll for comfort. Both are, perhaps, a bit too extreme for my tastes.
But towing a small teardrop trailer, or mounting a roof-top tent? Or—if I’m lucky—maybe enough room to pack a tent and a cot? That’s the type of lifestyle that seems most agreeable to me—grace, pace, and a little bit of space.
If you’re going camping with a classic, what’s the best way to do it tastefully?
