I've owned 4 total.

1992 Dutchmen 22BH bought new, sold 2011.
2003 Mallard 27H bought well used in 2011, sold 2016.
2013 Jayco Eagle 316RKDS, hoping it's the ideal keeper!

Also inherited my grandparents 1991 trailer, the brand name escapes me. It stays out in NM with my brother and he or I use it every now and then.

When I was a kid, the parents bought a 14 ft Rolite (hard side, folded up like a card house) they have long been bankrupt.

When I was about 15 they upgraded to a 17 ft Rolite to get a bathroom (yes the bath folded up too) - this was the first trailer I towed - on a learners permit.

When I turned 18 I bought a short body dodge van (the type with the motor between the driver and passenger seat.) and built out the back into a camper (just a bed behind the 2nd seat really) - I took that thing on a TON of Boy Scout Campouts and Summer camps as an Assistant Scoutmaster.

When I turned 20 I upgraded to a full sized blue Ford Van - the first year they had the motor out front. I had it sent to a 3rd party OEM to cut the roof off and put a canvas sided popup. Built out the back myself with a kitchen down one side and a bed down the other. It was a single bed initially. But I dated and won my DW using this van and after we married I fixed the bed so it slid out into a double. We honeymooned in that van (friends thought we were crazy to go camping up the BlueRidge Parkway on our honeymoon). We fixed a place for our first child to sleep next to the bed.
THIS was my favorite of all time. Very basic and home made but lots of memories and we could go anywhere.
But the kid grew up - and then there was #2 - and the transmission also went - so I switched to a Ford Explorer and we went to large tent camping for the next 20 years.

Once the kids went off to College, we splurged on a 19.5 ft Sunline (also now bankrupt).
We loved that trailer also - it was just big enough for the two of us and we had many great weekends and summer vacations.

Now I've retired and we're planning to spend more time on the road. We also need a few more "creature comforts" in our "old age". So we moved up to the Eagle HT 26.5 RLS.

Don't remember the brand name of those.

Had a 1978 24 ft Holiday ramblette.
Then a 1988 24 ft terry resort.
Neither suited me so I sold them and now I have a
2015 jayflight 23 RB
23RB wasn't big enough so I bought a 2016 sunset trail 250rb with a slide.
They didn't offer me anything for trade so I put the 23RB up for sale. No luck selling it. Traded it in to a different dealer for a 2012 3001W Windjammer to leave in Florida. I also forgot about the 1971 Dodge Travco I still have that the tornado destroyed.

Some brand of canned ham
Some brand of park model
