How long does everyone keep their campers before selling or trading in for new?

Bought a beater popup in 2010. Frame broke this June. Bought a 26bh two weeks later. Though we were planning on a Tt next spring. We will Lilly have this one until we are done paying for our 1500 in 2017 and our we might buy a dually diesel and get a 5er then.

Cruizin, we have 4 kids, all in their 20's now. Just bought a 2011 x23j, have taken it out a few times down to Cape Cod. At least 2 of the 4 try and get time off from work to join us. They have lots of fond memories of camping, first in a tent, then to a popup that we traveled all over New England, upstate New York and eastern Canada with. As they grew, every couple of years we would fly out to a destination and rent a 30' RV from Cruise America and visit the National Parks in that area. We dragged those kids all over the western U.S. One of our last trips was to be to Alaska, my wife and I, for our 25th anniversary. We figured we'd be going alone as the kids were older and could be left home alone, once the kids found out, no such luck. ALL FOUR insisted on going! It would not have been the same without them. They are all 2 yrs apart and because of the long trips in tight quarters they have become their own best friends. We are often complimented by others on how close they are. It has been a blessing. So keep on camping, you are never to old to be a kid!

We bought our first Coleman in 89, it was an 83 Sun Valley. A new Coleman Sequoia in 93. A new 97 230SL left over in 98. Our 2010 24FBS is an 18 month old used 3 time trailer bought in 2011. When we built in 99 we had a building erected to house trailers, keeps them looking new.

Had our last trailer, a 15 ft 1971 Sprite Musketeer for 8 years. Sold it when my daughters out grew sleeping together on a folded down table. Hope to keep the x213 until the girls leave for university in another 8-10 years. Then I'll trade it for something smaller.

Thats a great trailer and floor plan. We traded in our 2011 x23J in January for a whitehawk 28dsbh. We realized after 1 season, that we needed more room. Where did you buy it?

We started with a 1969 Terry that we fixed up. We traded it in after 3 years because we got tired of not having a grey tank. We then got a JayFlight 29BHS. It served us well until our twins were born and we traded it in after 9 years for a Greyhawk 31FS.

We all went to the trailer show in 1991 to look around. (I was about ready to graduate from high school). This 1992 model was special ordered from the dealer at the show price. Its been sitting along time and we are about to start rebuilding the brake system tongue to wheels and new tires. After we get it safe for the road again we will start looking at what eldse needs attention before going on a trip.
