We thought we'd have our Flagstaff Classic for years.....well "years" turned out to be exactly ONE year. You don't know how you're going to "feel" in it 'til you actually live in it. There were only the two of us, but it always felt a little tight. So we took our financial bath and traded up. Trading up also meant a heftier TV, but that's another story....

wife and I are contemplating this right now on our year old Salem. Original plan was to keep it 5 years then trade up. nothing major wrong (now that the running gear issues have been fixed), but a few small things that add up to having us yearning for a model with a few higher end features and a tad more storage... I am a cheap sob tho so we may stick it out...

Trading up

Started with a tent, then a pickup camper then trailer then a 5th wheel, then another travel trailer, then a Class C, then a 5th wheel, then a Class A, then another 5th wheel, and finally our 25 foot Cadet SC 226RBDS. 😪😰😱😍

I'm glad they don't make a "Class D"

Trading up

Had a tent for a week... A 20' TT for 11 months... A 24' TT for 16 months... Now a 31' TT for 3 weeks. I guess you could say we change our minds often... Hahaha. Get what you need but don't sacrifice on what you want either. Don't settle for any other reason than because you have found the camper that is right for you.

yep, we traded in our 27' Shasta Revere after a few trips due to it was too small, though we thought it would work but on one trip it rained the entire weekend and that was the deciding factor. While at the CG, i was on my phone looking for a bigger one with slides, we came home sunday and bought the new one that following monday.
