Lifestyle Change versus Trading up
This is not meant in any way to single anyone out, except me.
We went from a 5er to a MH and when I was in conversation with other campers, a few times I refereed to having "traded up."
My DW, being the wise one that she is but I will never admit it, took me aside after such a conversation and told me I should not use the term "traded up." It gives a sense of being better than someone who for whatever reason cannot have what you have. She is a wise one (sometimes)
Then I started thinking about camping in my '72 chevy sportvan 20 equipped by Travco for several years. The top popped up, slept 4 (two adults, two children) had a sink, two burner range, pull out porta-potty, and a gas furnace. Over the years I camped in tents and 5er's. Now I'm in a Winni Destination.
So one of my sayings is; "It doesn't matter what you camp in, you will have just as much fun."
So now when I mention my trade-in I refer to it as a lifestyle change.

It is what it is, and then it is what you make of it.
