I have the same problem. Except, I like to go camping & my husband hates it. I have 2 TT sitting in the yard. Have never camped with them, except in the yard. I am in my 70's, so its too late for me. I enjoy just looking at them & dreaming.

Tent camped with wife from the time we met (age 20 and 21). When we started a family we continued tent camping. We gave it up for a few years when the third baby came along, mainly because one of the toddlers wandered away while we were taking care of the others and tending to camp duties. It was just to tough to manage. We tent camped again when the kids became more responsible.

When the kids were all grown up we resumed tent camping and vacationing around the Country. Earlier this year we tent camped a lot in the Southwest visiting Big Bend Carlsbad Caverns, Guadalupe, White Sands, Grand Canyon, Zion, and many State Parks. What we found was that our age made it too tough to continue tent camping.

We got the house paid off and basically shifted our previous mortgage payments to an RV....... and we retired and are spending our kids inheritance. RV'ing is so easy and you really can't have an appreciation for it unless you tent camped for many years. We are hoping to hit the NW US and CA next year.

I suggest you do your maiden voyage without her. As a new to you used motorhome, its almost guaranteed you will have some issues to attend to, and if she is not in the correct spirit to laugh those off, you may never get her in there again!

Imagine no hot water, no heat or air, busted black tank......that kind of stuff

If you pre-test it for a few days, you can really shine with all the knowledge you have gained on it before she gets in it.

Doing the first trip without her is a good idea, though I'd amend it some.
We often see advice here to 'camp' in your driveway a couple of nights to test things before you take it out on the road. Perhaps YOU should camp in the driveway a couple of nights to make sure everything is working before subjecting your wife broken things, when she's not sure she's going to like it anyway. HER first few nights in the RV need to be as problem free as you can make them.

The first time you take the family out do your best to find a family friendly campground. Something with a neat playground for your 1 year old. If you can find something with a wading pool.

IMO most family campgrounds will have friendly outgoing folks to talk to. With a 1 year old it will be easy to meet people.

Get out and make a point of talking to campers around you. Something about a group sitting around and enjoying the outside as a group. Say hello to everyone, you will be amazed at how many will say hello in return.

And take the baby with you. It'll give your wife a nice break, and it'll give you an idea of whether it's going to be a lot of work.
