I am using an old 96 Class C. Been fulltiming almost 2 years now and have driven the beast over 20000kms so far.



Nice looking ride.

Nice looking ride.

Thanks. She's got 207000kms on her now. Haven't had a problem mechanically yet but 3 exhaust manifold bolts snapped off in the head. Sounds like a can full of marbles when it's cold. Pretty basic inside but everything works. take care.

I'm also a New Guy with an Old Camper:

I have an older fifth wheel ('99 - so not terribly old) and the paint is pretty oxidized. I tried waxing, made no noticeable change. I'm to the point now where I may look to re-paint the white portions by hand - starting on some out of the way spots on the body to see how well it works. I'm also considering removing the decals all together - they're faded and beginning to peel.


Well, I'm no longer a new guy with an old camper - I'm now a new guy with a NEW camper. We went out to do some research on the new Cougar High Country, and walked away a few hours later having traded in the '99 Terry on a 296BHS. Nice light 5er. I can pull it with my GMC Sierra 1500 with no problems. Went out 2 days after picking it up for a weekend and it is a dream come true! I miss the old Terry, she was good to us, but sometimes, you just gotta upgrade! biggrin.gif

Don't fool youself into thinking it will stop here though. It's OK to fool your wife, but not yourself.

I can relate! We walked into Camping World in 2004 to buy toilet paper and came out with a brand new Class A. You gotta be really careful when you go to places that sell RV's.
