Mostly alone or with immediate family. We've done the group thing and it's hard, or near impossible, to relax.

Mostly alone, spur of the moment things with other campers or family. We have met people we stay in contact with by camping at the same location for a few days. Travel is definitely alone.

Usually with friends, but there are trips I take solo, better to have silence and time to think everything over once in a while.

I depends on where you want to go and camp: With a motorhome and no tow, and when out in the boondocks and with possibly no cell coverage ... you might want to be doing it with some folks for both companionship in the evenings and for backup coverage in RV emergencies!

Such as places like this where we were following our RV'ing friends out there in front of us:

I love camping with immediate family, but that could be up to 30 people or so...LOL! 90% of the time it's just Ed and I and the dogs.

My favorite way to travel is with my girl and 3 dogs. Sometimes the girl has to work so I go alone.

Once in awhile we go with a group, but they usually choose some lame RV park and it is not that rewarding. I would like to go boondocking with some close friends.

I love and like my wife. We know we are going to get along just fine. I don't have the energy to coordinate the RVing activities with others.

We are mostly alone now... usually one or two trips a year we have a friend or two meet us at a campground.

Years past, especially when the kids were younger, we did a couple summers camping with up to 3 other families. We found out quickly that the "caravan" thing just doesn't work, better to meet at a campground. We had a LOT of fun!

Now, wife and I find out of the way campgrounds and plan a touristy thing to check out, then just sit under the camper's awning and read books.

Just as much fun as years past, just in a different way.

Usually just the bride and myself. If a small group then like others said "we'll see you tonight at the final destination" and go our own way during the day.

We prefer to travel alone, on our own pace and routes.

X2, it's easier to stop and look at something interesting, get fuel, go shopping, etc..
X-3, besides, in both our families, we are the only ones with an RV, and there is only one friend with an RV, but they rarely use it.
