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

How long does everyone keep or plan to keep their campers before getting new one?

If there is another thread with this subject, I apologize.

Thanks,

Kim

I had my 23b for six years...never had a problem. I hope to keep this one a lot longer.

We had our 23B for 3 years - outgrew it. Had our Sierra 315BHT for 6 years - starting to have quality issues. Hope to keep the next one longer!

I've had my current camper for 9 1/2 years. I have a new 5th wheel on order.

We had our last 5er 11 years. I hope to keep this just as long or longer.

We've had our 32 bhds for less than year and love it, but wondering how long our teenage boys (16 & 14) will want to camp with us. I guess they really have no choice since we can't leave them at home by themselves! We also have a 6 year old daughter who loves camping & will no doubt have friends come along at some point. If we were to decide to downsize today, then my first choice would by Jayco's 26RKS with bunks. That is an awesome layout, but missing the outdoor kitchen that we love.

Don't know if this is "Jayco specific" or not, but we have a Coleman pop-up we bought brand new in '82! We still have it and it still looks good and most of the stuff (A/C) still works. But Father Time caught up with me and my wife and I bought a X23B.

I plan on "passing" the Coleman to my son who has a new baby. A lot of memeories was made with the ol pop-up!

We don't get rid of things quickly, we also traded in my wife's 2001 Chrysler 300m, that we also bought new back then as well.

Had my first for 8 years. It was 2 years old when I bought it. Got tired of arriving at the cground where it was stored only to find this or that broken or not working. Every vacation started poorly, waiting for a repair man, or trips to Lowes. Had it this past July, went across the street from the campground and bought a Jayco 32TSBH. We only have one child still at home, but the older ones often like to come and bring the grand kids. Got room for everyone now.

Our first was a Jayco 232 (hybrid with 3 bunks) that I loved. We had it for about 2.5 years. Ended up trading it in when we found out my wife was carrying twins - children 5&6 for us, so it was time for a bunk house and something a little bigger.

Then we got a 32BHDS that we loved and would have held on to for a long, long time. Unfortunately, it was stolen from a storage lot. I won't go into the details, but there is a long thread here about it off anyone is interested. All I will say is GAP insurance makes sense, if you finance a RV.

We were going to replace it with another 32 BHDS, but then saw the 32TSBH, which is perfect for us as the bigger bunkhouse sleeps all 6 kids easily. You loose the outdoor kitchen / rear storage, but the BH is absolutely huge. Will hopefully have this TT until enough kids grow up and move out to allow me to get an F350 TV and a 5'er like the new Seismic. Right now we need a TV that can carry all 8 of us.
