Definitely yes. I'd love a 13 foot Bigfoot. Or a Lil Snoozy. Or an Escape. Once I no longer have a garage limitation I may start seriously looking at other trailers. Though ideally it would still pull with a relatively small vehicle.

I have to keep them separated, and Compact Jr keeps pouting that I'm not spending enough time with her. But... I just cannot break up with Fiber Stream. We share so much history.
Umm....wow... Dude, that is hot. I almost forgot about the fibreglass.

If someone has found the right thing for them, or making a new-to-them trailer "right" (customization, repair...) is not worth the effort for any gained features, then it doesn't make sense to change, but I would always be open to change that has net benefit to me. We get attached to our things, but they're just things!

A trend I see is that the people most interested in any kind of thing (car, trailer, computer...) have a lot of them, either sequentially or simultaneously - it's not that they don't like the ones they have, it's just that getting a different one gives them another opportunity to explore possibilities. The "had the same one and only one for decades" enthusiast seems to be the exception.

That sounds pretentious to me... but if that's your priority, I say go for it!
Personally, I would rather have a "sleeper": only I know what it really is. Someone asked me why I - a car enthusiast - was driving a tan station wagon; I explained that the chassis under it was the same as the red hatchback of the same model, and that from behind the wheel the colour and the shape of the back didn't matter. I want a car for me, not for those looking at me.

Information is good. Lack of information is not so good, but misinformation is much worse. Check facts, and apply common sense liberally.

Admittedly, I'm new at this. I/we let our eyes rove until we found what we thought was the perfect unit for us. Don't want to make the bed? Use the side dinette. More storage than we know what to do with. (We were backpackers in a former life.) Two roof vents, heat, air, 3 way frig and back flow preventers in all drains - stuff will end up on the roof before it pools in the shower pan. Window that tilt out so we can leave them open in the rain. Ask me in a year or two, but I'm not looking.

I'm with Brian, years of minimalist camping has left me in awe of my new Scamp, it's a great tent. The only concern is that I can't go where I used to and am confined to camp grounds, but age is catching up and one must adapt as best as one can.

I too come from a background of backpacking, ski touring, and canoeing. Even though I enjoy the luxury of my Escape, I still enjoy these other activities, spending a bunch of nights in the backcountry each year. I am still quite young at 55, but hope to keep doing some of these activities for many years to come.

I do not really lust over any other trailer, with perhaps an exception of Bigfoot. The problem is though that they are just too darn heavy for my liking, as I want to still with a smaller engine vehicle useful for more than just trailering.

Agreed, Im a man as well and I still look. I am totally happy with my ParkLiner for 1 person I still have 2 big cabinats with nothing in them lol. I have 20 years till I can think about early retirement and if by some scary chance I settle down (where is the cabana boy website ) I think I will be more then comfortable...lived in a 27 foot sailboat for several years so it was not much larger then my ParkLiner is.

At retirement I would love a ParkLiner 18, my vision lol. Same layout as the 15, but across from the galley is another galley with a fridge/freezer and some more kitchen storage and the side dinette is bumped 3 feet forward. Remove the smaller fridge and add a stove/oven. Would be perfect...plenty of room for cooking (counter top wise) a slightly longer tongue so plenty of room to mount a gas can for a generator, and on the backside a rear deck about 2 feet wide thats planned for storeing outside stuff (chairs, chocks, hoses, power cords, generator, etc) And obviosly the axle is back a little further for the additional load.

one could dream lol...Im sure if I waved enough money at Chandler he might consider it lol.
