Ours is a 1994 Tioga. We have only had her for about two years and plan to keep her for as long as we can. She only has 38000 miles on her and we put 12,000 of them on in two years. When we go full time or a bit more part time we may upgrade to an A.

We purchased our 2007 with intentions of keeping it 10 years. It is our 1st DP and our 2nd RV. When we bought our 1st, we also had intentions of keeping it 10 years. Time will tell.

What is "value"?

in 2012, we bought a 32', 1993 MH with 45.5K actual miles. We had never imagined owning such a "large" (to us) vehicle, but found it amazingly easy to drive, and it provides more of what we now need than a small camper towable behind my small SUV would have been. We've considered trading, but always end up saying, "no, this is good."

We bought our new-to-us 2005 Newmar Mountain Aire three weeks ago it was our first ever RV and have been full timers for three weeks. Still "new" and no plan to sell in the next ten years.

At 21 years ours has probably already hit bottom for resale. But, it has the floorplan we like and even with 80K miles, it's still pristine in and out. As long as it stays that way, we have no plan to change.

If we start travelling outside the East coast again, we might re-consider and look for something heavier with a better ride quality.

Mine is 22 years young and we have no plans on replacing it. We paid cash for it 5 years ago, it tows great, the inside is almost perfect and we haven't had any major problems with it.
LIFE IS GOOD!!!

Our Bounder is 3 years old; has 17,500 miles on the ODO. Can't say how long we will keep it, but we have had zero regrets with the rig.

I plan on being buried in it, I'm 68 so I hope I have some good years left. Don't know where I'll find a plot 45' long and 9' wide though!

I bought my 97 Adventurer in 2003 and kept it for 12 years. I wanted something bigger in the chassis and some more room so we just got our new Itasca. Planning on keeping this one for another 8 to 10 years then see what comes along next. The way my wife likes this one though I may have it forever.

We have a 96 36 ft Bounder that we purchased last fall. I plan to keep this as a stepping stone until we are ready to full time ( hopefully sooner than later). I'm considering full timing in this one , we shall see
