So with our proceeds we ended up buying this hybrid for a song and a dance on Christmas Eve. This was a great trailer, I really really liked it. During this time we ended up having our first Daughter. She also loved using this trailer as she had her own bed and she liked camping too.



Surprise surprise we are pregnant again and my wife says to me that our hybrid is too small for a family of 4 and I am not one to argue about getting a new trailer.

So we ended up buying our dream trailer that hopefully we will keep longer than 6 months and will help our family make many memories for years to come.




Our 2015 Wildwood Heritage Glen is perfect for us, but it is a big jump from a 19ft Hybrid to a 35ft 2 slide bunkhouse trailer. All I have to say is 3 trailers in 2 years sure happened quick, but when I look back on the circumstances to how we ended up where we are at, it makes sense to me. Kind of....LOL
Now about that TV.

We were not as bad.....lol

We went from a pup tent, first kid, to a cabin style tent. Kid 2 got us into a tent trailer, all within 5 years. Kept that until the kids grew up and out of the house, we bought the Fiver. Had the tent trailer for 27 years. Toured most of the country! Let the adventures begin! Have fun in your new adventures! Make memories!

We have gone through 4 trailers in 3 years.

1. After we got it we realized it was junk and way to small. Only had it a couple of months.
2. Loved the trailer but had a gate post at a ranch run out in front of me and rip a hole down one side of the trailer. Decided to sell it due to the needed repair.
3. Bought a little smaller trailer and hated the smaller part.
4. Just bought a 5th wheel a few months ago and love it. Plan on keeping this for years to come.

WOW! I thought we were the only ones. 2 trailers & 2 Motorhomes in 4 years.

Bought a new TT in 2012 sitting on our seasonal site. In 2013 bought a hybrid for get aways.

Traded the hybrid in on a new Class C in 2014 (Sunseeker) and just traded the C in on a new Class A (Georgetown) to gear up for retirement.

We are done. Of course we said that before.

Haha, I wish I could still use the jeep for this new trailer.

I am pretty sure that if I tried to put the weight of the trailer hitch on the rear end of the jeep it would bend that unibody frame in half.
