Not everyone is a happy camper. Cold showers and port-a-potties aren't everyone's idea of a day in paradise.
Enter 'glamping', a hybrid of glamour and camping with amenities that aren't typical of camping's discomforts. It's become the travel trend of providing affordable escape and adventure without getting too much dirt under anyone's fingernails.
Now glampers have a destination in Mount Dora. Every year, Renningers Antique Market, opens its rolling hills to everything from fanciful retro campers to mac-daddy modern RVs. March 19 and 20, Glampers can partake in traditional camping activities like camp fires, smores, live music and activities, plus meander about Renningers Vintage RV and Hot Road show and shop the antique market for obscure treasures.
Enthusiasts of recreational vehicles can tour vintage RVs and take home bragging rights for the Annual Best Vintage RV. There are also contests for Best Vendor Display and Best Campsite.
Glamping spaces are $15 for 30 amp per night or $20 for 50 AMP per night. Spaces to sell vintage RVs are available for $10. For camping or vendor registration : 352- 383-8393
