One day Vintage

Since many of us on here have new or newer RVs. I was wondering how many would keep their present RVs until they are consider vintage?
At this time I would like to keep mine but we all know that depends on the DW

I'm not sure what the criteria are for being considered vintage. I think we will keep our present coach as long as it suits our needs rather than the age. Vehicles don't tend to stay with us beyond their manufacturer's warranty, but since Country Coach doesn't have a warranty, we're beyond that already!

I've never been one to trade vehicles every two to three years. I've always tried to maintain my cars/trucks to a high standard and it's paid off in reliability for years after the warranty runs out. My last new car was a '92 and had it not been for an accident, I'd still be driving it.

We paid cash for our '05 e-bay special and now that we are retired, I can't see us trading up or buying another one. We are very satisfied with our present coach and it will probably be our last. We'll keep her as long as I am able to do most of the preventive maintenance myself and it stays at a reasonable degree of reliability without putting us in the poorhouse. Bob

Our plan from the begining has been to get the one we want----take care of it and wear it out.

Here we consider vintage at 20 years, some go to 25 years old. Ours is 22 years old and what we love is IT IS PAID FOR.

I have been so pleased with our Wanderlodge that I plan to keep it until it is double vintage. It will probably outlast me.

Our trailer is 28 years old and is by far the best we have ever owned. Can't see us trading for another rig. We had a 2003 SunnyBrook Mobile Scout before the Avion, and it was not near the trailer the Avion is. Do not miss the white plastic box at all!

I suppose they do...as do the vintage cast iron frying pans they use. You are a much braver man than I. Bob
