Bob and Mimi have been eco camping for several years, together and individually, using both tents and a small trailer. Mimi used her 2007 Prius for several years when she went off the visit family and to explore mountain bike trails, but has recently sold the Prius and now drives a hybrid RAV4. Bob uses his 2011 Prius when he attends mountain bike races. They both use the 2011 when they camp together.
Last fall and spring, they took an extensive trip to places warmer than Wisconsin, including Texas, Arizona, New Mexico and California. The 2011 Prius held both bikes and all camping gear, clothes, bike gear and food. Bob removed the back seat to enhance storage and build a sleeping platform.
Recently, they decided to buy a Safari Alto camper. Although they will be carrying around a bit more of a home, they want to keep things simple and as economical as possible.
