Currently have the rig in the signature. But getting there was fun...17' Starcraft pop up, 18' Prowler TT, 21' Coachman TT, 27' Champion Class A, 34' Pace Arrow Class A, 31' Minnie Winnie class C and the current Avion 36.5' 5er and F350. But whay started it all was a borrowed tent. Camping was in our blood, mine from camping on the river bank with my Dad, no tent, just a cot and the stars. My wife's folks strted her out with a trip in a borrowed Serro Scotty when she was a youngster.

The first unit was a 1980 Viking pop-up pulled by a 1975 Monte Carlo. After several pop-ups, the married with children unit is an '04 Rockwood 8298SS pulled by an '05 GMC 2500HD crew cab. I guess I'm a grown-up now.

Started camping as a teen in 1971 - 13' Shasta
Bought my own truck in 78 and slept in the back inside a topper. Cooked on a coleman stove on the tailgate.
'81 downsized to a LUV PU and bought a small slide in topper - same arrangement.
'83 bought an S-10 and a '67 15'Kit
'86 traded for a 20' Komfort 20'Lite Bunkhouse (had two kids by then and needed the space)
'89 bought a new TV - an Astro Mini Van
'98 kids were almost gone got rid of bunks and traded for a '99 Trail Lite 21' with a rear corner bed.
'99 bought a new Tahoe
'05 bought a 22H Arctic Fox TL was falling apart and starting to leak again. Wanted a bigger bed and a sofa - got both along with a bigger bath etc etc etc.

Hi, Travelaire Genesis GW270 since last year.
I can certainly vouch for Travelaire 5th wheels.
Last year we did several shorter trips and one of 10,000k, about 6,000 miles, and this year did a 3 month 23,000k, about 14,000 miles cross Canada trip and had no problems at all.

26' Salem Sport Toy Hauler. Prior to that I pulled a Leesure Lite tent trailer with my Gold Wing. I have been camping on and off sense I was a young child.

We tow a 2004 Skyline Nomad 180LT, and the TV is a 1999 Chevy Tahoe. This is our first TT and we love it! Unfortunately hubby's work schedule this year (he works for WA St Dept of Trans)did not allow us to get out like we'd hoped. My goal next year is at least twice a month. We're keeping our fingers crossed!

I've had a few pop-ups since 1975. 1998 went to a Wilderness 28' 5er. Then a Newmar Kountry Star 30-RKCL. At present we have a Kountry Star 35-LKSA.

First time I pulled an RV I was 15 on a learners permit, it was a 25 foot Blazon RV with a ford LYD country squire wagon. I started camping at 5 years old. I moved out from home at 18, and tented for many years. At 23 years old I got my first RV, a 26 foot Starcraft Travel trailer. I currently pull a 32 foot Holiday Rambler twin slide. I am looking at toy haulers now. So in short I have been pulling RV's for over 27 years.
