Worked our way up over the years from popup, to trailer, to larger trailer, to three different 5th wheels, to class c, and now a class a gasser(Tiffin). Traded in class c and paid the difference. Both wife and I have been retired over 10 years and just enjoying life as it comes.

Paid cash for truck and trailer both. Don't want to borrow anything any more. Especially in today's economy.

This has been very interesting to hear others opinions on how they do things. It's almost 50-50 at this point of Cash vs Finance.

Thanks to everyone for sharing your opinions! Keep 'em coming!!
Don't forget to turn off the water before you head out on a trip!
