Camped for 25 years in a pop-up. Mice took care of that one year, so went to a used conversion van for a few years. Started looking at RoadTreks, next thing I know, I'm the owner of a 10 year old 22 ft. Conquest Class C. Had that a couple years, upgraded to a 2011 Sunseeker 2300. The 2300 is perfect for the dry camping I do in NY State Parks, with boat in tow. Now that I just retired, will venture out a couple times a year cross country, wanted a little more "breathing room" in a unit, so just upgraded to a 2013bSunseeker 2860. I can still use it though for my NY State parks dry camping, which is the majority of the camping that I do.

We went from a 33 1/2 ft to a 34 1/2 ft. still with a 3/4 ton TV. Should have done the buy your 2nd trailer 1st though as we would have never changed from our current unit and will keep this till we are done as I am not interested in any more financing for the rest of our years. If I can't pay cash we won't have it anymore.

Started out tenting, wife has arthritis and was getting too hard on her plus too much work setting up. In 2010, bought a brand new Palomino 12 foot pop upin the spring, after using it for or six times, traded up to a Wildwood 17 foot hybrid. Funny thing mentioned about the newlywed story, but the bunk ends on the hybrid show everything pretty much in the same way when lights are on. This fall, upgraded again to a Wildwood 29BHBS with two slides. Plan on keeping this one for a long time now. Putting it on a seasonal site for now as I cannot pull it with my 4 cylinder Tacoma.

Like other here started out Tent camping in the early 70's. Graduated to a Coleman pop-up, then to a 34' 5th wheel, then a 32' Class C, and now the current Class A Georgetown. I think this will be the last and all of them have been fun and carry many good memories.

We started out in a 1995 24 foot Terry 5th wheel borrowed from my parents with a 1998 F150. Moved to a 2005 32 foot Dutchman Denali 5th wheel with a 2002 F250 diesel. Now we have a 2012 36 foot Crusader 320RLT with a 2012 F250 6.2L gas. In retrospect, I think our next upgrade (10 years from now) will be a down grade of sorts. I would like to go back to a unit in the 32 foot range and upgrade the tow vehicle back to a diesel. I plan on spending a lot more time on the road when I retire and feel this combo will be ideal for it.

Neither the wife nor I camped as children so we have started a new tradition for our family! All of our upgrades have been due to the growing size and quantity of our children. Here's what we have had so far:

Honda Odyssey and Jayco 1206
Gmc Yukon XL and Coachmen Catalina 26bh
Toyota Sequoia and Coachmen Catalina 28dds

OMG! Tenting, pop up, 19 ft toyhauler, 28 ft toyhauler with slide, 38 ft two bedroom destination TT with huge slide, 18ft microlite TT, 28 ft Jayco 5th Wheel with slide (very nice model and quality) graduating to our custom ordered Work and Play 34fk and new Diesel truck...we realized that there were some things we could sacrifice (like slide outs) to have the peace of mind of quality and durability!

I have always moved up over the years but I actually moved down last year. I went from a 26 ft toy hauler trailer to the Grey Wolf 19RR. My loaded 19RR weighs about the same as my previous trailer did unloaded. I am very happy with my switch and haven't looked back. The trailer is so much easier to park at my house and has all the room and ameneties I need. I have drove 3/4 ton Dodge diesels for a number of years and don't plan to change that antime in the near future.
