We will have had ours three years in October. No plans to upgrade until the kids are grown, then go possibly with a rear living room floorplan.

That's what we did.

Our youngest heads to college tomorrow, I have a new rear living room 5th wheel on order.

Life is good.....

Our first camper was a Toyota Winnebago Class C. We kept it about 5 years and sold it to buy our current Jay Feather 25Z. We changed vehicles because our camping style changed when we retired. We plan to stay longer in one place when we camp. We have more room in the trailer yet it is still small enough to tow with our F-150. We will keep it until our needs change again, and there is no plan to keep it for XX period of time.

There will always be some maintenance whether brand new or twenty years old (like our Toy house). From what I can see, resale value for new RV's drops faster than rock so I cannot see buying a new one when there are plenty of used vehicles in good condition. After 3-4 years most problems will have surfaced and be fairly evident if you learn what to look for.

Tented for many years, then a Fleetwood popup for 3 years, TrailCruiser hybrid for 3 years, Jayco TT for 4 years but didn't need the BH anymore as the kids just got too old to camp with mom & dad anymore. Now we are enjoying our 2013 37' Palomino Sabre 5th wheel which we plan on keeping a long time. DD and her friends still use our 3 room tent.

We have a Jay Series 1406 pup now 4 years. Good size for the 5 of us, and I'm looking to get the Cardinal Designer Series 1406 just for the upgrade. Plans are to keep that one a long time.

Our first pop-top Coleman about 15 yrs, the first Jayco ('05) 7 years. A 20' tt, 1 season, a Layton 28 BH, seasonal 3 yrs.

The current Jayflight had better last a long time.

I have no plans on getting rid of my '98 Eagle anytime soon! It may be getting up there in age, but it looks brand new since its been stored indoors since brand new.

We bought our x23J in April. Thinking of selling it to get a bunk room. we wanted a bunk room but our explorer couldn't have pulled one but now we've bought an F150 so Im thinking about the upgrade.
