A question to those of you who have had so many campers - why replace a recreational vehicle every 3 or 4 years? We've had our Coleman tent trailer for over 30 years and plan to keep our White Hawk until we are too old to use it.

Great to have this thread revived. I guess I can't count all the tents.
Three campers so far:
2001 Dutchmen Pop Up
2011 Jayco X23J
2015 Starcraft 299BHU

So which did I like best? Hmm probably the one that created my 14 year old daughter.
Quality? I would have to rate them all about the same. The pop up was the most cheaply made, but in reality had the least warranty issues.
