We went through this in 2013 our 27 foot no slides had done us well enough to be comfortable for a week at a time but next yr I retire and we wanted something we could stay for a month or more at a time. Moved up to a 30ft with a 14ft slide in the living room and a 6ft slide in the bedroom, you can actually both walk in the trailer without one having to sit down so the other can pass. 2 of us staying in it is comfortable still having more being inside can be interesting.

No living space in it...only way to be comfortable inside it to lay in a bed. No outside kitchen, Looking at a Rockwood ultra lite 2905ss.

we bought our largest camper this year, same year the kids stopped going with us. Worth it? Absolutely. The wife and I are enjoying every bit of our time together. Have been out 17 times since April. Would do it again in a heartbeat.

Well, I consider it a good thing that I have heard no regrets yet. Our upgrade story is very similar to many of you. We went from pop up to hybrid to TT. We have 3 adults that will be camping plus children with grandchildren on occasion. I appreciate all the input and look forward to some more.

Above all, you need to be happy with what you have. If you are not comfortable currently then I think you have probably made a choice. Do a lot of looking and see if you find one if the dealer will let you spend the night on their lot.

Lots of researching involved for this one...very little research when I bought the one I have now but I got lucky it was the right camper at the time,

Went from a camping in a tent since I was kid to 36' 5r last year. Slight upgrade.
I had to have that popcorn button like Ford did.

fortunately or unfortunately how you choose to look at it we upgraded after 4 months. A rather large hailstorm helped make the decision. Our first tt sufficed for what we needed. Our new one fits what we wanted. Advice decide what you want over need. And shop shop shop. you will find the camper that works for you and at your price level

Holy moly ... that is an "upgrade" from a 26 footer to a 34 footer.
We sold our 26' Sunline and went to a 28' Rockwood 2604WS. I wanted to stay under 30' because we do so much of our camping in state parks and federal and state WMAs. But it's just the two of us so the 2604WS is big enough to feel roomy inside, but I can still squeeze it into smaller spaces at older parks.
You need sleeping for 4 children?
