- The origin of RV travel
The world's first motor home was invented in 1931. It is said that it originated from a love story: the fiancé of the German female painter Friedel Edelmann is called Alister Deslevs, a famous local skier. rod maker. Because of the nature of Alister's work, which requires constant business trips, the two people who love each other get together less often. So Friedel thought of a way to build a movable house, so that she could accompany him on business trips and paint at any time. The fiancé soon realized her wish and built a "trailer" with three beds and a liftable roof. This invention also gave birth to the Telford RV company in Germany that specializes in the production of RVs.
In the early 1970s, with the rapid economic development in Europe, automobiles became the standard equipment for middle-class families, and statutory festivals were widely implemented. Families driving RVs to camping sites began to enter the families of ordinary people on a large scale. By the beginning of the 21st century, outdoor camping has become a very mature industry in Europe. The number of charging camps in various countries has increased rapidly in a short period of time. Under the competition, camping services are no longer limited to basic facilities such as RV spaces and tent camps, but also include entertainment facilities such as swimming pools, mini golf, children's playgrounds, restaurants and bars.

In Europe, camping is as social as skiing. Get close to nature in a relaxed state, whether it is with lovers, relatives, friends or strangers, everyone will let go of their guards and talk about everything.

And the quiet nature makes the distance between strangers unconsciously shortened a lot. Especially when it comes to cooking, neighbors can see each other what they cook and what wine they drink. Although there is a stove in the kitchen of the caravan, many people are used to bringing a small gas stove by themselves, setting up a stall on the grass, and chatting while cooking. When they are very interested in chatting, they simply invite each other to have a meal together.
- "Exquisite camping" or "ecological camping"?
Compared with the exquisite camping that is popular in some places, such as high-value food, high-quality stereos, retro kerosene lamps, and Hermes tents and open-air projectors...Europe advocates the "no trace principle" and the staff will urge Campers are responsible for the natural environment and become sustainable and environmentally friendly travelers. At the end of the trip, take all the trash that was generated, like it was never there.
Very similarly, a new trend called "ecological camping" has emerged in Europe, and camping agencies in various countries are committed to sustainable tourism management. More than 230 campsites in Germany, Italy, Austria and Switzerland have been officially awarded the eco-camp seal.
