Who cares? Our first camper (soon to be replaced by a new Jayco) is a $4000 1998 22 foot long ugly camper. One of the first trips we took with it was to Florida. We hadn't planned ahead, only had the camper for 3 months. The only place we could find was a $130/night rv RESORT in Florida. We were surrounded by super expensive 5ers and class A's.


The only reason we got the spot was because it was too big for a class A or 5er. The only reason we could own a trailer and afford to go to Florida so young was because we had a cheap trailer.


I really don't care what any of them think. We had an amazing time visiting friends and family in Florida in February. That camper has served us very well for 4 years, allowing my bride and I (and eventually our daughter) to have lots of experiences that we otherwise never would have.


Enjoy your small camper and make the most out of it =)!

What's nicer about a smaller, pull behind type camper is that you have your vehicle with you to head out and explore other areas outside of the campground. Sure, the big rigs tow a vehicle as well, but we smaller owners don't have the expense of that!

^^^ That's the right way to think about it.

+1, but I do like to walk around and look at all the different rigs in a park. Since I shopped for 2 years for my trailer, I have a pretty good idea what they cost. So when DW says things like "why didn't we get one like that?" I can respond with "well, because that one is 2x or 3x the price of ours! If we bought that one we couldn't afford to use it!"
