Which rv have you enjoyed the best?

Most likely you enjoy your present rv. But, of all the rvs you have owned or used (if more than one), which one have you enjoyed the best? I started to ask which have you enjoyed the most. But, I'm sure someone would relate the word "most" to length of time.
To me, enough room and not overshooting ir (room), contributes to enjoyment. Of course, maximum room certainly would not be a downside by any means.
Not neglect, but, carefree maintenance would be another attribute of enjoyment. Who likes break-downs and blowouts?

Me & my Hun RVing for fun!

Well, just as you suspected...our present RV. Since it is the ONLY one we've ever had, it will have to be the best one so far!!!

First was a cramped old 29 ft class C. No comparison to an A with slides!

For us the one we have enjoyed the best is the one we have now. We liked our previous rigs but with all the updates and ammentity additions thru the years this has been what has made this one a great experience. What do we enjoy the most? The extra room and the ride of the Workhorse chassis along with that 8.1 married to the Allison transmission. That's a combination that's hard to beat. JMHO

Yep, current one! We have stayed briefly in small trailer, mid-size trailer, pickup camper, and worked with son's pop-up ...we like our class A diesel (only RV we have owned) best for our purposes. ...almost 9 yr & little over 60k miles.

as expected our current 5er. over the years we always traded up every 2 years. we have had this one for 6 years now. we've looked at new models and haven't found one we like as much. anything we've looked at we would have to have some customization done to get what we have now. so we figure why bother getting a new one. we'll just keep this one going.

Full time now for 4 years and have not regretted it one minute.

Current one certainly - but we often look back with fond memories to our first "RV", a 1978 Jayco Cardinal pop-up. That one got us out of a tent (off the ground), and we pulled that thing from Lake Erie to the Rio Grande in Texas. When we sold it after 6 years of use, we got $50 less than we paid for it, so we basically had equipment costs of $50, 1 tire that threw a tread going across Texas in the middle of summer and whatever minor repairs and improvements we made. If only it had had an air conditioner.....

We really enjoyed our pop-up. It provided our young family many vacations and weekends with the kids and that is much different than what we expect from our winter quarters as we use the 2012 Winnebago Journey. Comparing the two is rediculous, yet both provide or provided us with what we want them to do!

WE started 1989 in a wilderness Yukon 19' 5ver had a lot of fun
in that little trailer then in 2002 went to a prowler 26' 5ver big move
from the 19' good trailer until the leaks started could not get the roof to
stop leaking traded in 2009 for a Sidney Outback 28' 5ver small kitchen
no counter space ok trailer it was only 8700lb but pulled like it was 14000lb
I think the 15" wheels had somethig to do with it,
In 2011 traded it in for the 326MKS Cougar 5ver big kitchen which the DW
loves and the rear entertainment area is great the tv is in that area
not 15' across the like in the Outback and a lot of 5ver's
Have put 9,700 miles on it this last year love all the time we spend
in it, the best trailer we have brought and probable the last

Yea, like others have said, the present one. Years ago had a 1970's Winnebago class a. In 2002 we started renting for vacations, 2 class c's and a class a Hurricane. We ended up buying a 5'r and loved it. We are on our 3rd 5'r and this is the best one, we finally have the all in one bathroom.

This coach is my favorite. First coach was in 1978. Since then I've gained enough experience to know what I want. You'll know the coach you have is the one you want when you go to an RV show and the new coaches don't look as good as the one you have.

We've only had one 'A' and a pop up w/air while I lived in Georgia. Pulled that thing with a '79 Buick Estate Wagon...bent the frame of the car several times on old logging roads and back wood campsites, what a blast that was.

The 'A' we have now we looked for, for over a year. After two summers and over 25K miles, we feel we made the right choice. So much so, it will probably be our 'last' as well. Best features...probably the bath and a half, the reliability of the WH chassis...the house is well built also. Bob

Maybe because we were younger, but we really had some great trips in our pop-up. We had several other trailers of various sizes in the 25 years since but the pop-up and our current small class A are my favorites.
