Just got back from 8 days in the camper. When I first met my wife, I did backpacking and didn't even think car camping was legit but she's got me to switch sides. We camped in a tent out of the back of a Subaru for years, then bought a dilapidated pop up in 2015 and did a cool little resto job, this spring we finally saved up enough to buy this incredibly fancy (for my tastes) 20' trailer, and I bought the Chevy express 3500 lwb to tow it.

It's kinda crazy, seems like a lot of money to drop like 30+k cash into this rig when I won't even buy myself a 200$ moped, but 8 days with no cell phones, no switch or ipad, just hanging out the 5 of us coming up with adventures and getting into mischief.

Once you have 2+ kids the amount of work to take them camping increases dramatically. Tent camping with 3 kids is miserable, even the pop up was just constant work for dad. This year with the camper we did 8 days and running hot water, stove, and nice dry beds and a place to hole up and play board games was totally worth it. We've already done like 20 nights this year, and I'm sure that will only increase, I think there's definitely a bit of a camper boom right now and there will be a lot of cheap campers for sale in the next few years when everyone realizes it sucks, but our family really likes it and it's a experience that totally justifies the cost and hassle.
