I started out with a 2004 36' Weekend Warrior 5th wheel toyhauler.

Then went to a 2006 40' Skyline Rampage 387 and a Fleetwood Scorpion S1 toyhauler.

Then bought and designed a 2008 Peterbilt 387 to be converted into a Motorcoach.

Currently own a Fuzion 399 toyhauler.

LMAO! This is great.
Tent camped for years. During that time (about 2000) I bought a '96 Damon 32' 5ver from a friend to LIVE in. I took a pay cut and was working my way into a new better job that pays so much better now, and he bought a house and couldn't afford both payments so I took the camper payments over, and I lived in his back yard. LOL! NO truck to pull it anywhere, so I still tent camped!

I bought a house in about 2007 or so, and had the 5ver towed to the RV pad there at my new house where it sat for a year since I had no way to tow it.

Sold it about 2008 and bought a 8x10 motorcycle box trailer and added a bed, A/C, and lights to it to camp in (2008 or so). Worked great, for the bike and as a camper, and my friends had converted bigger box trailers to campers, MINUS the bathroom facilities. We always stayed where there were bath houses.

About 2010 a couple friends got toyhaulers as upgrades. Then in 2011 a couple more did too.
Then in 2012 I LUCKED into a sweet deal on my current 2007 Salem LE 27' Toyhauler. Deal was so sweet, I couldn't pass on it even though it was too much for my truck then. Towed it home looking for blue lights, knowing I stole it! Towed slow and easy for that year and a half. AND never farther than 200 miles and all in the flat land of Florida. Most trips were only 100 miles. Upgraded to a 2500 Dodge recently and I am waiting to tow it for the first time soon.

So 2 actual campers - still have 1
a box trailer - still have and used at Sturgis 2013 bike rally this year.
NUMEROUS tents! One big enough I parked my bike in the front 1/2!

Bob and sometimes - Nina - a Staffordshire Terrier/a SPOILED pit and her kitty Spaz
2006 Dodge SLT 2500 4x4 Cummins Quad Cab w/AT and 3.73
2007 Salem Sport LE 26FBSRV (TH) w/ my Victory Motorcycle in it or a EZ GO Shuttle cart.

2003 - We bought our Sunline TR-280 and used it for visiting the boys while they were in college.
2014 - We plan to downsize to a smaller, lighter unit...looking seriously at the Minnie Winnie 2201DS. I should be in my 70's before we need the next one....should be interesting to see what changes occur in the RV industry by then!!!

Yep...add the 2201DS to the list. We pick it up this coming week...so it will be camper #5. Since we're in our 60's, we'll have to see how many more there will be as I wouldn't mind being one of those 80 year old guys still out there haulin' and campin'!!

I've had 4. The first was a small cargo trailer I camped in, basically a step up above "tent camping"
