Then April of this year we sold that and purchased a 23' Coachman 5er one slide. My wife about went crazy. But now all is good.
That 19' scamp sounds very interesting. I'm guessing it was an older model?

The 19' Scamp 5er was a 2004. They still make the Scamps today. The interesting thing about Scamps are they are a molded fiberglass camper are they really hold their value and are in high demand because they are so light weight and are only made in Minnesota. My 19' Scamp 5er only weighed 1800 Lbs and are made to be pulled with small trucks so they are cheep on gas. Only problem is there's not much room. If I had been single I would've never sold mine. Scamps, Casitias, Bolers, Uhaul's are just a few of the true fiberglass campers.

We had 3 campers in 4 years: 2001 Kodiak K215 hybrid that we traded for a 2012 Grey Wolf 26BH in 2012, then in 2015 we traded the Grey Wolf in on a 2013 Keystone Passport 3220BH.

My parents had 5 campers in one year: they had a 03 34' Jayco Designer 5er and 1999 11.5 Elkhorn truck camper, sold both and bought a 07 27' Lexington class B dad hated it, they traded it in on a 2014 32' Open Range 5er and then also bought a 08 9.5' truck camper. They use the 5er for going south for the winter and the truck camper for going to northern WI and MN with the fishing boat.

4 in 3+years

Wanted to try out motor homing and got a 1996 Itasca 28' no slides when we got back from the first weekend i asked the wife what she thought of it and she said "Where are we going next weekend?" 4 months later i was off to Florida to pick up my 2nd motor home an 05 Trail-Aire 34" 2 slides, loved it but discovered the roof was rotten, too expensive to fix. My wife said it is my turn to pick so after 15 months of camping in the Trail-Aire we got an 11 Itasca 31E which 2 months ago she said "you were right the kitchen is too small". Guys did you hear that i was right. So we just picked up an 11 Georgetown 378XL with huge opposing slides that make the kitchen and living area bigger than my townhouse. Next weekend we are going on our first run to try it out before heading to Arizona in late February
