And TT's for many years before that.
Forgot to add: all the MH's were bought new except the first Type B Okanagan and it was a factory/salesmans demo bought at a county fair.

First PU - almost twenty years (a 1967 Cox!)
Second TT - three years (a warranty nightmare)
First MH - three and-a-half great years and counting!

We tend to keep ours a while:
1972 Viking p'up - until 1977
1976 30' Kountry Aire 5er until 1993
1996 Shadow Cruiser pickup camper(getting back into it with a new wife and checking out if she liked that kind of life style)
1992 19' pre owned Realite TT (way too small, but fun)
2001 27' pre owned Sunline TT
2006 33' pre owned Glendale Titanium 5er 3 slide
2014 38' Montana High Country 4 slide (almost too long for the North East USA campgrounds)

While we have not had anything more then a couple very minor warranty problems with the Montana, I'm still not sure the build quality is there in this (kinda) light weight version of that popular name. We may start thinking of moving up in the next year or so and will probably stay with 5ers but we have seen some really nice class C units lately

how long have owned RV

We purchased our 1994 Monaco Dynasty 30', 230hp Cummins, 3060 six speed Allison new. We now have 140,000 miles on it, and have been to every state, Canada Providences, Alaska. We usually travel three months in the winter, and mostly move around the Southwest . It is always kept in a heated shop, plug in, and maintained by me. Being from northern Idaho we are always glad to leave after Xmas. I will be 80 this year, but still feel like I am much younger. Safe travels Larry & Judy

Just purchased our current moho last year. Owned previous rigs from 1 year to 10+ years. Currently own Dodge van we bought new in 1999, and Ranger pickup I bought more than 10 years ago. By the way, our current motor home I will keep indefinitely barring some catastrophe.

Don't buy a RV if you are only going to be able to use it when you find time off from work. People's lives are so busy now a days, that short 3-4 actual days off are now called your vacation. Maybe you can sneak in a few weekends here or there. If you only foresee 10 days a season to RV, maybe a used unit now, till a later date where you get more time off.

I get 6 weeks of vacation which are all used for RVing trips. Yesterday just reserved 22 days to Northeast PA. and VT. for Aug. Plan a 2 week trip to Southern Ohio in June and something else for July. Usually get out 50-60 nights. Always looking forward to that perfect campsite sitting back in my chair enjoying the nature of a state park.

With a new RV, if you see after a season or two you want something different, flipping to another one will $$$ cost ya.
