I am 30, wife and 4 yr old son and almost 1 yr old daughter. Tow a 2012 jayco swift slx 184bh with a 2006 toyota sienna ce minivan. Stock tow package on the van, added a reese hidden hitch, brake controller and a mid size transmission cooler. Fully loaded we approach the 3500 tow limit and the vans gas mileage is down from 26 to about 13. Tows it very well through althougj some airbags or helper springs in the rear would help.

I'm 64, tow a 2011 Keystone Springdale 26.6 RLSS weight of 7700 lbs
loaded and tow vehicle is 2004 Ford F350 4 DR/4X4 longbed diesel.
Truck is way overkill for the trailer, but I already had it and it's paid for.

TT: 1998 Starcraft Leisure Star 33SKS 33' with 13' 6" super slide, fully optioned, I have rebuilt, remodeled and repaired 90% of it LOL have yet to get new graphics for it, as for now it's lovingly referred to as "The FEMA Express" thanks to my friends. Someday I will post lots of pics of it and everything I have done to it. Dry & empty curb weight of 7800#

TV: 1996 Dodge Ram 3500 6x6 dually, Cummins P-pumped 24 valve turbo diesel with pump & engine mods, injectors, bigger turbo, exhaust brake, electric fans, 5 speed manual trans, 4.10 gears, 12 ply 33.5" commercial tires on 19.5" rims, Reese Pilot brake box, Kenwood double din DVD/NAV unit, 1,000 watt and 400 watt power inverters, Leer cap, and much more...pleasure to tow with! Curb weight approx 8,400#

Best part is the entire rig is paid for and heavily modified / built/ rebuilt by myself!

48, wife is 47 we have an old 77 wilderness which at the moment is a useable rolling project that we got 2 months ago and have been doing small projects on it on my days off, plan to repaint the whole thing someday but did some cleaning and painting to get it "not so ugly" painted the tongue and bumper after this pic, used to have avacado green all the way around it.

installed an ac unit yesterday under the fridge where the previous owner had removed the furnace

at least now it doesnt have the long black tar spill down the side anymore from previous owner

50 yrs old this November. ...Hold the applause...

I'm a returning RV'er having lived fulltime in a 1983 31' Bluebird Wanderlodge for some time. I was in my early thirties when I had that rig. A lot of time has past since then.

I recently (today) finalized purchase of a 2012 Artic Fox TT. I am looking forward to picking it up. Gonna be in it fulltime for the foreseeable future.

Cheers...
