I went truck camper camping with my folks when I was 10 in 1968, but didn't start RV'ing on my own dime until 1999.

Plus I don't have to clean the slobber off the CAC and radiator. I don't have to lift the bed or unbolt a hatch to lube the e-brake or change the air filter either.
Other than that and cleaning the radiator/CAC there isn't much difference other than cost to the manufacturer.
Had to change belt and was a major job. Rear radi blows to much dirt on the toad,just like a sand blaster.
