(Season 6 premiere)
Camping Trip was the 111th overall episode and the Season 5 finale of Sanford and Son. Also the 23rd episode of Season Five, it first aired on NBC-TV on March 19, 1976.
Lamont brings Fred along on a camping trip to have some solitude and quality time together. Fred is no friend of nature and does nothing but complain...when the truck won't start they are stranded and begin to reminisce about old times.
Hoping to "bond" with son Lamont (Demond Wilson) before his marriage, Fred (Redd Foxx) talks Lamont into embarking upon a camping trip. Things go from bad to worse as the truck breaks down in the tall timbers, and Fred and Lamont are stranded, without food, in a snowstorm. Although not readily apparent, this is a "clip" show, comprised of flashbacks to earlier episodes. "Camping Trip" was the final installment of Sanford and Son's fifth season.
