Has anybody here done this?

My brother just stunned me. He and his wife are on their first trip with a brand new setup. 2015 Ram 3500 Cummins & a 2015 Forest River Wildcat Maxx. it's 31 ft. His wife thinks the trailer is too small. So a little over 2 weeks into the trip, with a couple weeks still to go, and hundreds of miles from home, he up and trades his new trailer for a 2016 41+ ft. Keystone Montana. Said he had to make the wife happy.

Has anybody done something like this. Trade a brand new trailer for something else while on the 1st trip with it?

Some have more money than time? Seriously tho, if they realize the original wasn't right, make the best deal you can get on with a happy life.

No, we actually made it two years. That was after lasting 17 years with our first one. The dangers of impulse buying.

Well if he has the money and the unit didn't suit them...........why not? I wouldn't go in debt for it. We all made a mistake one time or another that the unit isn't what it thought it would be. Congratulation to your brother and his wife.

When I sold cars I had two different unrelated buyers buy cars the first week of the month and traded them in the last week of the month and buy two more cars from me.

I know I'm probably in the minority, but, I can't see the attraction to these huge rigs? When were camping I spend 8 hours inside the camper, when I'm asleep, otherwise I'm outside enjoying nature. I think the TT we have is too big for most occasions, we got it because we work kamp and live in it for 6 months. Even then, I'm outside 99% of the hours I'm awake.

What is the draw for these huge RV's ? Unless you have a raft of kiddos, I just don't get it. I've seen more huge Provos' Class A's that the folks never leave their rig. Stay for a week and you may see them outside once or twice... what's the point? May as well put a picture of exotic places in your windows at home and be really comfortable. JMHO>

I agree with you wags, I'm inside only if I'm sleeping or its raining, and sometimes if it's a light rain I'll sit under the canopy and watch the rain. For some reasons it's relaxing to us.

Guess that is why they make so many styles of RV's. Everyone has a choice of what they want. My family uses our RV as our hotel on wheels and we like to have a nice room. Others boondock and want just an upgrade from a tent. Some people work out of their's and need office space. A friend of mine has a big toy hauler to take his 4 wheelers to the mountains. It's whatever the owner wants and I for one am glad we have so many options. So you asked why and those are just a few reasons. I am sure that there is others.
