Good advice.

Recently, someone on here told me to always buy your second camper first. Good advice, and I wish we had followed it, but we are very happy now.

But why didn't anyone tell my husband to buy his 3rd tow vehicle first?

Yesterday, he came home with a 2010 Ford Super Duty F-250 SRW Lariat diesel.
It sure is nice, but no more trucks until the kids are out of high school. And they haven't even started yet.

Sad thing is that we are in the same boat!!! Except we started with a pop up, into a good sized travel trailer and now into our SV 305 all in a year! Also, started out with a 5.3 chevy, stepped into the 5.7 Hemi and now into the 5.9 Cummins! Bigger is always better!

I think a lot of us do that. 3 campers in 5 years - Roo, Travel Trailer and now Fifth Wheel. About the same for tow vehicles - 5.3L Yukon XL, 6.2L Yukon XL Denali and now 2500HD Diesel! I think it should be buy your third camper first !

I bought a TV first, then bought the camper. Only to figure out that I needed a diesel TV to pull that much weight comfortably, so bought another TV(diesel), then figured out we wanted another camper(just slightly bigger than the first one). All in 11 months! LOL! I feel your pain!

We started with a bumper pull travel trailer pulled by a Ford Expedition. When we traded that TT in for our first fifth wheel...we didn't even own a pickup. Fortunately we ordered from the factory so we had six weeks to get a pickup lined up.

It's funny how addictive these things are - but, so enjoyable and so relaxing (and FUN!!!) - even after 12 years of RVing.

It's too bad that he didn't get a 1 ton with dual rear wheels because I'm predicting that he is not done buying TV's!
