How many have campers have you owned?

Just thinking back to my younger years. I have owned several campers since I have been old enough to go out on my own. Here's the list of the campers I can remember (not sure they are in order):

1. An old "High Low" Camper. It was given to me by my aunt and uncle.

2. Had a "small truck" pick up camper. I think it was a palomino. It had canvis sides that cranked up. Hauled it around on a 87' Nissan pick up. It got a bit scary going over 55mph

3. full size pick up camper (I dont remember the brand) but it was a late 70's model

4. Bought a 35' Mallard (early 90's model) Kept it on a seasonal lot for a few years. Towed it just a few times. NO SWAY control or tosion bars for it. Towed straight as an arrow

5. Our first Jayco. It was a 99' 242FK. Liked it, lived in it for 4 months while in between homes

6. Found our we were pregnet last spring which was just an excuse for me to use to convince my wife to let me buy a camper with a slide out and bunks. Bought our 97' 314BH and plan on keeping it for awhile.

I feel like I may be missing some, but if you care to take a trip down memory lane, feel free to share what you've had in the past

'97 Jayco Eagle 314BHS

'03 Tahoe LT 5.3L

We've had 4 since 1991.

1) '72 Jayco 12ft pop-up. Bought used in Oct of 1991. We had this for one full season. I essentially rebuilt it, and I knew nothing about camping trailers at the time.

2) '93 Jayco 1208 pop-up. Bought new in Feb 1993, kept it for 10 years.

3) '03 Jayco Kiwi 17a hybrid trailer. Bought new in Feb 2003, kept it for 10 years.

4) '13 Jayco Jay Feather X20E hybrid. Current trailer, bought new in May 2013. Hope to keep this one 10+ years also.

Well my list is a little shorter...

1. Bought our first camper 11 months ago. A 2014 264BHS. We made 6 camping excursions last season and one already in 2015.

I have a feeling our list will grow. We are looking and may get a different camper in 2016. We love our current camper but would like a slide (which I originally didn't want).

Interesting post. Here goes.
1. 1994 StarCraft pop-up which we sold to purchase
2. 1998 Coleman Bayside popup which we traded for
3. 1998 Jayco 263 5th wheel which we sold and ordered a
4. 2011 Jayco 365 BHS which was destroyed in a tornado so we took the insurance check and ordered another
5. 2012 Jayco 365 BHS which we loved until we saw and traded for our current
6. 2014 Jayco 375 BHFS.

What's next is anyone's guess, but for the forseeable future, we love everything about our 375.

First camper was a backpack. 40 years ago we would go up into the mountains and backpack into some place and come out when we ran out of supplies. When I met my wife I told her I loved camping and soon after we were married I discovered that she didn't know what I meant when I said I loved camping. Next came an actual tent with a floor, what an upgrade. First camper with wheels was a 19 footer with air conditioning........that's when everything changed. That was about 30 years ago. Next camper was a 30 foot Prowler which we used for a number of years. Next was a Rockwood V front kitchen, very nice camper. And then the one we own today.
