We rented a pop up. Bought a pop up. Bought a hybrid. Bought a TT. Bought truck camper. Back to TT. And on a small TT. Probably over 25 years, all used.. Had to match camper to tow vehicle and pocket book. Never lost a lot of money in trades and sales. The history just shows how our camping desires changed through the years. I enjoyed the TC but wife can't climb anymore so off it went. As I age, I don't want that 32' camper anymore. A camper can be a blessing to enhance life's experience with loved ones. Maybe a MH is next. It will be used!
I have a 02 Silverdo Duramax that I bought in 03. Back then diesel was $0.30 cheaper than gas. Now it's $0.45 more. Makes no sense. I've got a log on 98% of all full used. Unless towing heavy, a lot, I would not spend the extra today. And, I'm a big diesel fan.
