The 1980 Glendale was purchased by my parents in 1990. They owned it until 2003, when they bought a 5'ver, and sold it to me and my wife. We had two kids at the time.
Since that time, our family has grown (to 4 kids now). We wanted something a little larger to accomodate travelling, and not having to make and pack up sleeping arrangements every stop. The bunk house should serve us well for this purpose.
We have sold the 1980 to my sister and B-I-L, so it will stay in the family! It is a great trailer, in excellent shape, always cared for and winter stored. We're happy that they're getting it.
I can also attest that as much as I like our new Jayco - they certainly don't build them quite as stout as the old one! The Glendale was a Canadian manufacturer - also made Golden Falcon and Titanium trailers. Unfortunately, they have fallen vicitm to the economic climate of the recent past, and are now out of business.
