I do a lot of my grilling when we go away for the weekend. My wife and
I are a bit to old for the rigours of camping so we tow a caravan.
These are popular in Europe but I've never heard of them being used in
the US. I know motorhomes are popular with you guys but I was
wondering you use caravans or maybe call them something else.

They form the backbone of the recreational vehicle industry here. More
trailers are towed than motor homes driven.

In American, we don't cook outdoors. It is a bad practice because dirt can
get on the food and smoke from the burning wood will destroy it. Not to
mention the bugs. OOOOHHHH, icky.

They are called trailers here and they are quite popular, probably more so
than RVs ( motor homes)

Heh heh! My grandmother had a gas stove in the kitchen for cooking and a
kerosene stove outdoors for canning and melting down the beeswax.

You forgot "Pickup Campers" that fit into the back of a truck, or a
"Fifth Wheeler" style of camper.

These sound a bit like what we'd call "Trailer tents".

Thanks for the responses, guys. Like I was saying, getting away for a
few days gives me a chance to relax and take some time over cooking;
usually I make some burgers and maybe some chicken or ribs with a nice
marinade. I also find that a really hot fire is one of the best way s
of cooking a medium or rare steak.

To whom, and to what message, are you responding to? Adding a bit of the
text to which you are replying (as I did above) would be of help by making
your post less confusing.

We have a very popular category of RV called tent trailers. This is a link
to just one manufacturer, and it shows a range of towed camping trailers
(including tent trailers) and motor homes.

Here's another link to the type of pickup truck campers to which John B was
referring :

Attribution, as you also did, is also important. IMHO
