We'd pretty much try to stick with what we have now. Don't want anything bigger and the only extra that would be nice is a bedroom slide.

My RV DID disappear, I'm getting NOTHING for it and I'm digging down deeper and getting a newer, better RV . . . . the RV I had was a trade - I traded my 2002 Teton for it. It was equal in NADA value but far from what I wanted to live in. Now I'm shopping for a Tiffin . . . and will be MUCH happier, even with the payments.

We would stay with the same manufacturer, but move up to a DP which we plan to do in a few years anyway at retirement.

We ve talked about it and when the time comes, we ll get basically the same type rig maybe one thats a tad longer than what we have now.
We have a 29' Class C. Maybe go to the same class but a little longer.

If we lost our '07 Trek we'd search out another one just like it. After 2 1/2 years full timing in this one we'd do it all over again. Livability of a 40' in a 29' package with two slides. WooHoo!

We love our National RV. Too bad they are not around now!

We would never trade on a whim. I have made too many changes to make this one livable for our RV live style. You just can't buy that in a new one.

We never get new rig fever, However... we do get opposing slides envy every now and then.

We enjoy our Monaco Windsor, but a little longer coach with an extra slide or two would be nice.

We would look at a 42" or 45" American Eagle 2007 or newer. Really happy will our coach so far.

I'd get a Newmar All Star 4154 (bunkbeds) so the kids would have real seats for their car seats, more powerful engine and the big storage underneath.

I am happy with my Ventana with bunkbeds, though.

We spent a year looking for a floorplan that meet our current wants and needs. If we lost our RV, we would stay in the Bounder family. Engine platform and floorplan unknown at this time.
