I voted for mulitple ownership, seeing as this is the second 5er we have owned, we used to have an ancient TT that weighed just as much as the TV.

Funny story, when we had our other 5er (89 Mallard 24 ft) we were camping and I accidently broke the Black tank dump valve, so we went to Woody's RV in Red Deer, went in there looking for a new vlave, drove out the next day with a newer (96 West Wind 26 ft) 5er!

We've been fulltime in a 5th wheel for ten years. Our current one is our second and we are in the process of buying our third one. It should be built by mid July.

Ours is the first RV we have owned. We had rented pop up tent trailers and once a Class C motor home. But my in-laws had full timed for 7 years in a 32' 5th wheel in the 70's and 80's, so we decided to follow their lead.

5er Ownership Poll

I'd like to be able to vote, but I don't fit any of the categories. As of now, I don't currently own any rv, just a cargo trailer, but am semi-seriously looking at 5er toy haulers. Would that make me a "Fisrt time 5er owner to be"?
