May 2010 Photo Contest.

Hi, I want to make this contest some-what diiferent. For this contest you will need to post two or more pictures. These need to be your pictures, taken by you, and of your trailers/motorhomes etc. The theme of the May 2010 Photo Contest is: "What a difference there is between my first [or previous] camper and the one I own now." [my wife will kill me if she sees this, so please don't tell her] Obviously my pictures don't count, but will give you an idea of what I'm looking for.

Note; This little truck bed camper trailer was used for two trips to Canada and all through the western states; It slept two adults and two dogs. [Black Lab Mix & an over sized pure bred Collie]

Here you go...the first picture isn't exactly a "camper", but it's what we camped in for years before getting our first Airstream! So I guess our first real "camper" was Maxwell....we jumped right past the truck camper & pop-up phases - straight to an Airstream!

Hey, at least they are all round...

We currently travel and camp in quiet, relaxed, comfort.

Back in the 70's camping was a different story. Thrilling at times but mostly noisy, windy, cold, wet, uncomfortable. What were we thinking?!?

We got 10 feet more trailer!

Oh this is fun! We did lots of tent camping until we moved to western Canada. That was too scary, cold, and wet in the Rockies. Our first trailer was a 13 foot 1973 Boler (which we still have). Then we got a 14 foot 1975 Surfside (with a QUEEN bed!). Now we have a 23 foot 2008 Airstream International CCD. The bed on the Airstream is as "cozy" as the one in our Boler. Egg-shaped trailers rule!

Thumbs up

Talk about upward mobility! Now this contest is starting to move.

Anyone go in the opposite direction? New/big to old/small?

Another former pop-up owner. We camped and traveled for 17 years in this trailer. Tons of memories and great times.

The Airstream does take up a lot more room in the driveway...

Sorry if this comes off as rude, but for those of us who would never have anything but an Airstream, we are now unable to be in this contest.

All in the life of one tow vehicle

After never RVing in my life, I bought a used 2003 Four Winds so that I could bow hunt a little more comfortably. I branched out and started camping at the state parks in the summer so often that I decided to invest in something a little larger and more excessive, since the decade of the 2000s was the age of excess, and at the time bigger was better.

That trailer was a brand new 2007 Keystone Laredo ordered from the factory just the way I wanted it. It's one of only two vehicles that I ever bought new (vs. used) and I was planning to keep it for many, many years. Well, after only one year I came back from a morning of deer hunting to find just a frame. The cause will never be known, but four months later I received a Dometic fridge recall notice.

I had always loved Airstream but couldn't really afford Airstream. The combination of a really great deal and a nice insurance check made the dream come true, although bittersweet.

So that's my progression, and it happened all in the lifespan of a single tow vehicle (2000 Excursion diesel).
