RE: Former 5th wheel owners

Did not go from a 5th wheel but did go from a TT to a PUP for many of the same reasons as you noted. For us it was just a non use issue as our kids are getting older and keep us busy running around. I missed the bathroom the most, we have a porta potty and while that's ok its just not the same has having the real McCoy with a shower. My second idea was to get an old 18-20' TT gut it and do a makeover. I'm a wood worker/welder and just enjoy working with my hands after pushing a pin all day. I still may pick one up, it not going to be a crazy leaker but something that has something left of it.

RE: switching to a pop up again

Had a Jayco PUP, then a TT now back to another Jayco PUP. Will be picking it up this week. Its a new 2012 sport 10FD. It fits the bill just fine for us. We wanted just a simple trailer with no water heater and just a fridge and heat. I liked a lot of the upgrades Jayco did this year in the select series except for the power roof, I wish you could have taken off that option. For the 3-6 nights/year that we go the PUP will work out just fine with out a lot of $ just sitting. At some point we will go back to a 5th of TT. In general I think most of the PUP's are a******shoot, most of the parts and concepts are the same. I have had good luck with Jayco service so thats the way we went a second time.

RE: 2011 Jayco j141 Value

We ended up with a Jayco 10FD, for now this will work out just fine. Looks to be an easy mod to add a biffy of some sorts.

RE: Thinking of Down Sizing from a TT

We did the deed this weekend. A new 2012 PUP is on its way. Like I said back a few pages going to miss the TT in some respects but this is going to work out much better for us now. Ended up with a new Jayco 10FD, looked at a few used PUPS and to be honest for $2,000 more we got a new one, its still way cheaper than the the TT. For $6,500 if it does not get used all that much I'm not going to really care. With any luck the kids will like it and we can just give it to them at some point.
