Houses on wheels, being vehicles, at the same time possess all attributes of houses, though mobile. Ordinary houses are located on the ground. RVs also need, parking on the ground to ensure proper rest and accommodation of their owners. Campsites and campsites are used for temporary accommodation of motor homes on their territory.
Campsites are the territories of complex tourist destination. There are no real estate and capital buildings in the campgrounds. Located on natural sites, usually near natural or historical attractions, campsites are focused on providing services of outdoor activities or educational-in the case of a close cultural environment.
Mobile homes, like caravans, are organized for seasonal residence or recreation in nature, in environmentally friendly conditions. Their owners do not solve the issues of land acquisition and prefer to pay seasonal rent for the use of areas in the campgrounds.
During your vacation, you can change many campsites. In the latter case, it looks like a journey. Therefore, from the caravan, you can get a double impression. On the one hand, attached to a tractor-trailer, migrating from one temporary Parking lot to another, the caravan is a means of travel. On the other, standing in one place in a campsite all season (often more than one), covered with protective aprons, awnings, caravan-akin to bungalows or mobile homes.
The relationship of RVs and campgrounds is the most temporary. Motorhomes are purposefully purchased for road trips rather than for long-term camping. For the motorhome, camping is often just a place to spend the night and perform household services (draining, pouring water, cleaning the toilet). This transit need for Parking has given rise to a form of proposals for tourist transport, referred to as campsites (Stellplatz, German).
In comparison with campsites, campsites are only Parking lots with a zone for the implementation of consumer services of motor homes (often paid for with coins or tokens, machines). They can be located both in the natural area and in the city. Campsites can be paid (much cheaper than camping) and free. The advantage over campsites is often their closer location to natural or cultural attractions. Stop at campsites, as a rule, only motorhomes, and cars with caravans.
The camping area can be functionally divided into parts. The main thing is the accommodation area, which is divided into sections of the main part of the territory. Regular customers staying there throughout the season, together with their caravans, make up the most equipped part of the camp. Other sites, passing from guest to guest, are free for any kind of Parking: with a tent, motorhome or caravan. Sometimes the policy of camping is to set aside separate areas for motor homes.
An important part of the camping infrastructure is a household area, which can be of different size of equipment but must provide a sanitary minimum. The household area may include a sauna, bath and kitchen. And sometimes there can only be toilets, washbasins and showers, and hot water on tokens.
