If you may take a look at this page:
1) First pic: all items we are taking over the floor
2) All camping gear, before packing
3) All camping gear, packed
4) The gray bag contains all camping gear less the stove and emergency kit, the side bags (green) contains the clotting, stove, computer, ipod, sandals, etc., the cooler contains ice and food for the day and the tank bag all miscellaneous.
the silver bag goes on top of the trunk, weights only 11pounds (tent, two sleeping bags, 2 air pads plus small items).
We go for trips like Alaska (21 days) with that setup. The tent is a 3 person tent.
Every 2 or 3 nights on the camping and then we have one night in a motel, normally better then Super 8, but not a luxurious one.
In my opinion, to do camping with the wife you will need the right gear. If you have it, you both will be a happy campers
