Which RV do you plan to buy next?

We may downsize eventually to a B+ motorhome for 'mobility' reasons, parking and efficiency.

Interesting topic. We currently have our small Jayco 22BHM and a Sprinter van with a mild home conversion. Both serve completely different purposes but are working well for us at this point. However, we may consider trading both on a smaller class C, sub 27', at some point in the future.

I must confess that I am obsessed with this question as my long-suffering DW will attest. It really will be a game day call. I am currently spending time researching Northwood Manufacturing (Silver Edition Fox) and Outdoors RV (Blackstone) units. If we go big, it will likely be a fiver. If we stay in a TT, it will likely be a rear kitchen or rear living. If I get totally fed up with the crud and maintenance of box units, I may go after a Bigfoot or an Oliver, but that would also mean significant downsizing - not sure about that. B class is also in the thought mix as is C class. Pros and cons all over the place. Savings, health, and lifestyle decisions as the day approaches will help us decide. We are on a ten year plan for our next (likely last) rig.

Class C most likely.

We've had a couple of home-converted vans and a small Class B and really liked them. We're older now and need a good night's sleep, easy night access to the bathroom, and a reasonable kitchen - all things we didn't have with our vans & Class B.

It's a ways off so haven't done the research on specific brands, but a Jayco will be on 'the short list'.

We're on our third trailer, a 2011. We bought it new; it took me 5 or 6 years to get the add-ons we wanted installed and to fix some of the poor jobs Jayco did when building the trailer.

The trailer as it is now suits us and we most definitely will not be buying another one (unless there is some event which destroys our trailer).
There's lots of advice and information in forums... sometimes it is correct. For example, all of my posts are made by a political appointee who got the job as a reward for contributions to my diesel bill.

We have been living full time in our Eagle 5er for the last 6 1/2 years and we are replacing it with two new units. One is a park model trailer that will be perminatly placed in Arizona which we will be in for half of the year and the other is a 27’ Airstream travel trailer which we will travel in the other half. Both are on order and expected in early November.

We really have no complaints about our current unit. It's worked very well over the last 4 seasons. We don't really need more living space but looking forward I would like a bit more cargo and tank capacity. We want to keep it simple so not interested in added complexity such as slides. At the moment we are thinking about a 212QBW Baja but have looked at a few "SOB" as well. The DW likes the tub in the Jayco's which is something we've not really seen in the similar sized "SOB" models. Likely a couple years out as we've only got about 18 months left on the house payments and are focused on getting that out of the way as quickly as possible.
