Old age...campers that is

Seems like most of the posts here are about newer campers. I've been wondering how old some of the other campers are that are STILL being pulled around. here's mine. any older?

2000 TT 2-3000 miles yearly.

We had a 1999 triple E, and in the spring of 2010 we went to Alaska and back. In the winter of 2011 we went to Arizona and back. So if you are asking can older trailers be pulled long distances, they sure can as long as they are maintained properly!

I was just wondering if/who has older trailers on the road. It seems to me that older trailers get relegated to stationary use or even disuse.

Either way, there isn't much mention of older campers here. Mine is in great shape and I have no intention of retiring it.

We have a 2000 26ft Flagstaff TT. Don't even know the model number. Bought it 3 years ago when we sold our pop up. Dragged it down to Florida the past
2 Winters and also around Wisconsin and Minnesota for short trips. We love it. Spending another 6 weeks in Florida this coming year. Maybe longer if we have another Winter like the one we just had. Just the Wife and a Duck Toller along for the ride. I'd like something newer but can't justify the expense right now. Towing with a 2012 F-150 ecoboost.

I bought a used 2006 Wildwood LE 25 FB trailer 2 years ago, which was neglected and req a lot of TLC to get it habitable. Have made three trips to Florida and several to Oklahoma. Will be leaving in the morning for a three day stay at Glen Rose Texas for a senior golf tournament. Unfortunately my wife cannot travel due to health problems so I get away when I can when the kids can keep an eye on her.

Have a look at some of the vintage RV forums. Sure some beautiful rigs still on the road! A whole subset of the RV world/life. Our previous trailer was a 1972 Trillium still going strong and we sold it last year for what we paid for it a few years ago. Mind you, the Trilliums were all fiberglass and pretty indestructible!

2003 Coachman 25 RKS, trade up from a 1987 Layton 17. OTOH our boats are a little older. An '87 Wellcraft 190 and a '68 Chris Craft Commander 35. Commander has been to the Great Lakes, the Coachmen has been to Alaska (not since we have owned it) and the Great Lakes as well.
