I had my first, a Forest River, 2001 for about 10 years. Traded it in in 2012 for my present TT. It served us well, but now we have 4 grandchildren, and all my girls and their husbands enjoy camping with us. Even with all my room, it can still get crowded!

2012 Jayco 32 TSBH
Stored in Myrtle Beach/Surfside SC
2006 Tundra DC with tow package
No TV since Tundra can't do it

My wife and I bought a used 1969 Terry in 2001(? I think) We did a lot of work on to rehabilitate it. We traded it in early 2004 for a new 2004 Jayco JayFlight 29BHS. The 29BHS was a bit of a compromise so we could pull it with our 1999 Dodge Ram long box club cab tow rating. We really wanted the 32BHS which had a full slide rather than a couch slide and had enough room in the master bedroom to change. The sad thing is after a few long white knuckle trips over the passes with our Dodge 1500 we decided to trade the Dodge in for a 3500 Silverado long box crew cab. The 2004 JayFlight BHS saw well over 50,000 miles of use and a lot of memories with our daughter and my son. We traded it in this year for a 2014 Greyhawk 31FS. Some of the the reasons we traded it in was the JayFlight would have needed a new roof and many other repairs. In addition, I had some injuries that have left me with some disabilities which made the trailer truck combination harder to do. Finally DW and I just had twins. That sealed it 3 kids and occasionally her mother made the truck impossible to use. We found traveling with two newborns and having to stop all the time would have been untenable for us. With the Greyhawk when we are stuck in traffic DW can feed and change the twins without stopping. No screaming kids! Also our 8 year old can watch TV while I drive!

Old setup:
2004 Chevrolet Silverado 3500 LT with a 2004 Jayco JayFlight 29BHS
2014 Greyhawk 31FS with a 2007 Tahoe toad
New setup:
2014 Thor Palazzo 33.3 with a 2007 Tahoe toad

We are looking to buy an X23b, no used ones for sale in Cali! I think people keep them forever, now looking at a new one. Just hated to spend that much.
