How Often Do You Tend To Repurchase/Replace Your RV?

Strictly for discussion sake, how often do most RVers purchase/repalce their existing RVs? Is there a certain point in years where you can no longer get a decent trade in/sell price for your RV? Ours is a 2014 Rockwood and I am always looking at the newer offerings. We kept our previous RV too long and had to make so many repairs/updates it was finally time to cut our losses and part with The Quack Shack.
Let The Discussion Begin.
Be nice and have a great RV day.

Great question ...looking forward to wise counsel here.


DH & I purchased 2013 MicroLite with the intention of 10 yrs use & then move on to the next (keeping an eye out & no one is producing the TT / 5th wheel with the major must haves in order to trade yet... except Lance & it is way too much $$$$).

Seeing all the problems that people are having with the new RVs and things I can't fix, I am happy with our 2012 and can hold off upgrading.

I'll trade when it's paid off. I think I'll be 128 that year.

2012 Lexi 283ts here. Set up for two of us, numerous mods. Have had no problems with it in 6 years, and as long as it still preforms we plan on keeping it.
Paid for so only regular cost is maintaince and insurance. Would hate to get into payments again, so we're keeping it.
Besides, we like it, and it would be easier and cheaper to modify or replace any minor issues we may have.

We had a 2014 tt 27 ft. When purchased new it was what we could use comfortably, wife, son, and myself. And dog,,,. But within 4 years my son grew 2 feet, I'm talking about in length, he always had 2 feet LOL. Well he couldn't sleep on the fold out love seat anymore, ( not a trifold). We picked up a new 2018 rockwood 5er. Trifold sofa is great in size. Son sleeping well again)). And wife and I love our own bedroom being upstairs at the opposite end of 5er, it puts about 27 feet between us and the son. He can play on his ps4 all night and we dont hear it.
So I guess the answer is 4 years

Our early 2006 Roo 23SS hybrid sits quietly and snug under her winter cover. 14 seasons and no need or desire to change campers. Nor have we found a floor plan we like better. Tentage is a mandatory item for our camping and while the new permanently fixed tentage is certainly nicer it's not a reason to change.
