They realized very quickly after purchasing the trailer that it's a real pain to hook up, to drive and to take down many country roads. The fuel cost is astronomical and they've only been able to take it a couple hundred miles from their home. They also have to be very selective when choosing a campground since many national parks don't have spaces for an RV that large. I was talking to her one day about how I was thinking of upgrading to a larger trailer when my husband and I get older and she said, "Don't do it!"
Why do most campers choose a larger RV? Many times it's because the smaller campers are very difficult to find. I searched for three years for the Sunflower and had to have it shipped to me from Florida. Also, after talking to other campers, I think a lot of them feel they will be missing out on creature comforts if they choose a smaller trailer. While it can get cramped in my little teardrop on bad weather days, on good and fair days our creature comforts extend out to the trees, the night sky and the roaring campfire.
We don't need a flat screen TV when we have the stars.
