I really prefer camping, because it allows for longer days of riding without having to do all the loading, driving, unloading before and after the ride. The trailer has a "weekender" LQ package, with a shower and toilet and fridge, and we put a king-size pillow top mattress in the gooseneck, so "camping" is pretty darned comfy. Plus, nothing can beat a good meal cooked outdoors, sitting around the campfire after a ride, etc.
Unfortunately, one of our horses was injured over the winter and is still "on the mend" so it's really cut back on our camping this year. Hoping to be back at it by this fall, but for now we're just keeping to day-rides.
