1993 Kwik Kamp motorcycle trailer. Just gave that one to my daughter.
1977 Triple E Surfside, had it for 3 years.
1978 Biggar, my forever trailer.

Life would be a million times better if there were Pinatas strategically placed throughout the day.

I purchased my Escape 17 in April, 2011, but in the 2 1/4 years I've towed it 36,500 miles around the US and Canada.

In a fairly short time, couple of years - I have had (in order but overlapping) a 76 Trillium 13. 2010 Scamp 16. 75 Boler 13, 99 Scamp 13 & currently a 2008 Casita 17. Loved them all & wouldn't hesitate to buy any of them again. However must say that the Casita seems to fit our needs best for now but I am still adjusting to the concept of pulling something so big around!
Just wish I had a bigger yard so I could keep a fleet!

30 + years. 1981 Burro, parents bought new in 1981 gave it to me about 2 years later and I have had it ever since. It's part of the family.

Just a bare 19 years. My wife saw it in a used trailer yard, bought it and came home to tell me to go and tow it home. We've since repainted it, Replaced the axle, added a screen door, redone the interior with a permanent bed and two-person dinette, added exterior hatches to access the old seat areas, it's been to the western provinces several times and attended quite a few Boleramas east and west.
We often keep a small sign in the door window that just says. "NO it's NOT".

I've had my UH since 2005. Didn't camp so much the first 3 years, but been using it regularly since then.

So true, over the years I have used truck campers and motorhomes and have to say the current trailer which I have had for 6 years has worked out the best so far. Lots of great memories with it. Is it my forever trailer or the trailer I would own if I won the Lotto tomorrow? Nope not by a long shot but I love it just the same.

We took delivery of our 13' Scamp on December 15 2005.
I have no idea how many miles it's been towed, but it's a bunch. This year it's been towed about 7,000 miles and slept in about 120 nights so far. This year is a bit lower in miles and usage than the last two years.
The first 4 years it was out some place every month for at least a couple nights and 2 to 3 weeks in the summer.
Now that were among the retired set our short trips are usually around 10 days and the long ones close to a 100 days. The SW is great in the winter.

My other RV is a 45 lb backpack. Typical camp.
Byron & Anne enjoying the everyday Saturday thing.

We bought our Compact Jr in 2004 and it may soon be passed on to my son. We bought our Bigfoot in 2009 and plan to keep it until age keeps us from camping.

Had ours for 3 days..yippee!

We had a 2006 Scamp 16ft side dinette in 2009 with front bunks. It was immaculate and we put aluminum wheels and radials on it. Sold it for $8,300 (shouldn't have)...then we got a teardrop...nice but putting up a side tent, cooking out back, getting dressed, etc was kind of a pain.

We just picked up a 2011 13ft Scamp front bunk that was used 10 times. Its like I am a kid at Christmas time...just bought aluminum wheels and radials, waxed it , polished the aluminum belly band, got stainless acron nuts for the door shines better than new.
