Started with a 1961 Aloha single axle that I believe was 13'. Next we went to a 2006 Weekend Warrior 26' bumper pull double axle toyhauler. Just last year we upgraded to a 2009 Fuzion 40' triple slide, garage model, triple axle toyhauler. Great times in every one of them.

Our fifth wheel trailer

Our fifth wheel trailer is a 2005 Keystone Outback Sidney 28FRLS model which has a rear entry door and rear picture window with two single swivel chairs. And in the living room, it has one slide for the sofa and dinette. We added a Fifth Airborne Sidwinder air ride pin box for a better ride on rough roads. We tow with a 2004 GMC 4x4 short bed Ext. cab 2500 with the 8.1 liter v8 gass engine which gets about 9 mpg. I am very pleased with it because it really gets the job done!

Smile Happy Campers

We have been camping since 1970. Started with a 13ft. Arrow, no toilet, ice box, hand water pump and a step down area in the center that was the only place my 6'2" husband could stand straight. The dog decided that was her place to lay so we had to move on. We now own our 6th trailer a 2000 32' Starcraft that we ordered new. We love it and find Starcraft to be an excelent trailer. We previously bought only good used units. We have been blessed to travel the U.S. and Canada all these years because we could afford the RVing lifestyle.. It was a great experience for our children and later for their young buddies that we took with us. One boy from a family with very little means joined us many times traveling from coast to coast. As a grown up he joined the Air Force and later told us it was because of us he was able to join in conversation with others about so many places in the country . That was so nice to to hear because it expanded his knowledge. Keep on camping!

My first fifth-wheel was in 1987, and haven't stopped pulling a fifth-wheel since. Fifth-wheels have improved over the years, and I still can't wait every year for Quartzsite to start up...Benn going there since 1987....

Just picked up our 3rd travel trailer in life. Got a fair deal on a 2001 Fleetwood Prowler 29 footer.
I'm really looking forward to making it ours with some custom work and getting out there this spring.

Glad to be here, my first post. I have a 2007 Jayco 29BHS and tow it with a 2009 Dodge Ram Crew Cab, short bed, with the 5.7 liter Hemi engine, 3.92 rear end. I used to tow it with a 2004 Chevy Trailblazer with the 5.3 liter motor and the extended body. I bought the camper based on the max I could tow with the Blazer. The pickup is much much better! We are actually looking to upgrade trailers now. I have my eye in the Salem by forest river Hemisphere 312qbud. Happy towing!

I camped with my parents, starting in about 1962 or so, when I was 4 or 5 years old. I continued to tent camp until 1990, when a friend gave me a well used but serviceable Six Pack cab-over camper. I used that unit until 1994 when we purchased a '94 Fleetwood Terry 22u. We sold that trailer in 2002 and picked up a used tent trailer in '04. We used the tent trailer a couple of times, but we missed having a hard sided trailer. So in 2006, we purchased a Fun Finder X189-FBR. We put a lot of miles on that little trailer and camped in it often - often enough that we decided we needed something bigger. With that in mind, last October we purchased a Dutchmen 277RLS. We've already had it to Texas and back (we live in southern California) and are looking forward to our next long trip. We pull this trailer with a Dodge Cummins 2500 4x4.

I started camping with my parents in the 70's. Camped in the back of a couple of trucks from 77-83. I bought my first TT in '83 - a '66 Kit 15' towed with an S-10 PU - learned the rear end gear lesson the hard way. Traded the Kit for a 20' Komfort Lite in '86. Changed tow vehicles to an Astro Mini Van in '89. Changed TTs to a 21' Trail Lite (aka the leaky tiki) in 98. Traded the Astro for a Tahoe in '99. Traded the Trail Lite for the Arctic Fox 22H in '05 and traded the Tahoe for a 2500HD in '07. Looking forward to doing more camp touring as we get closer to retirement - only 15 yrs to go.

Started camping as a Cub Scout, then as a Boy Scout.
Later dad bought a Pop Up. When I was in my teens, I did the tent camping bit.
Later, after marriage, we did a little tent camping, but DW didn't care for it.
Back in '03 we bought our first travel trailer. We are now on our third and are enjoying every minute of traveling and camping.
