I don’t know how to tow and it terrifies me. How can I learn?
You are not alone here. The number one most cited reason for not joining the fun is a fear of towing. I’ve addressed this on the podcast a few times but will say here that towing is a skill set you just have to learn. It is not dangerous. If it was Uhaul would not give everyone who walks in the door with a valid driver’s license and watches a fifteen minute video a trailer to drive away with. Their insurance companies wouldn’t let them! But you can do it! And we have lots of towing rescources in our Camping 101 section.
Do I need a travel trailer to be a Girl Camper?

Does everyone have a vintage trailer?
lots of new trailers, family trailers, old pop ups, motorhomes and vans in the girl camping movement. The one thing that many campers have in common is the desire to make whatever they are camping in feel like home. Whether it’s a pretty bedspread or a whole renovation, Girl Camper trailers tend to reflect their owners personality.
I see a lot of party themed camp outs and dress up events in some of the groups. I’m more of a hiking kind of girl. Are all of these groups party themed?
No. The majority of Girl Camping groups are women who are camping, hiking, kayaking, Dutch oven cooking, fly fishing and enjoying the outdoors. The big party-themed campouts are so much fun, but not the norm. Within groups you will see event descriptions that will tell you what kind of trip it is.
