I had my popup for 12 years and when I bought the TM, it was that it would be my last camper. Time and age will tell me when I have to give it up. I just hope that when that time comes, it's just to get a different camper and not to give up camping completely. Nothing like a cool evening sitting around the warm camp fire with friends.

Sadly, I will be selling my TM much sooner than I want to. DW has had a rough year with a major health scare and she won't be able to access the bed very comfortably anymore, so we need to change to a TT with a walk-around bed.
I'm prepping the TM for her sale now and will put her on the market soon. A very hard choice to make, but a necessary one.

I am also sorry to hear that...hopefully your DW will recover well and you will both enjoy your new TT. I've enjoyed reading your posts and hope that you stick around for a while on the board.

Sorry to hear that; at least it sounds like you can still make camping trips with the new TT.

A big thanks, to all of you, for your kind words. She is well on her way to recovery. We have a trip planned for the first of the year to the Lance Factory in Lancaster, Ca. They conduct tours of their manufacturing facility, so we signed up for one. They are on my short list of replacements for my TM.

BTW, I'm not going anywhere, I plan on staying to share in the camping experiences and fun, you're all having.

Happy campin,

Tim,

We're also looking at Lance, for many of the same reasons. It seems to be a quality built trailer (relative to others). We're pretty sure we already have an interested in party in our 3124KS: our son (skidsareforkids) and his family.

I have read many excellent reports on Lance, they seem to be very rare in this area.
