GLAMPING – Shorthand for glamorous camping; luxury camping. – Urban Dictionary.com
“I ain’t sleepin’ in no tent! For real, I’m goin’glamping!”
We started camping more than a year ago and a statement were hear from many people is that we are ‘glamping’. Initially I thought, sure, the trailer is nice, spacious and has many awesome amenities. Of course, it’s a trailer as long as a city apartment, indeed it’s got many comforts; running water, flush toilet, shower, hot water, microwave, air conditioning, TV and a fireplace. We love the fireplace in the winter! Okay the fireplace is electric, but the fake flames are pretty convincing.
But are we glamping?
With a little research, I found we are not glamping, we are RV’ing, glamping is a whole other world. For more information, check out this website who’s author states “it’s high time for an official, designated glamping weekend. And who else to decree it but the woman (moi) who pioneered the concept?”.

Equally as interesting is a link to an Airstream Restoration Project. Not technically detailed but has great pictures and information on the restoration and ultimate birth of a glamp star.
