We moved up from a 8ft mini PU slide-in to our current 1986 29.5' Monitor which is more or less a Holiday Rambler in disguise. It is nothing fancy by any measure but is very functional. Got it for a song but did have to do a significant amount of welding to the frame crossmembers. I guess this is somewhat expected on an older TT.

We all love the TT - especially the kids!

Like most we started with a tent trailer when we were first married but actually never did any camping with the kids, which was too bad. When 1st retired we bought a well used 21' 5'er which we used for 4 years or so and did quite a bit of travelling. Today we have the new TT in sig and although our trips this year will be limited, next year we hope to go to Newfoundland.

Happy camping.
I have much to say why my reputation should be rescued from the load of false accusation and calumny which has been heaped upon it.
