I don't feel any urge to move from a 19' to a 21'. When we bought our 19' just over two years ago, we still had three kids at home. One has since left the nest and a second will soon be moving away from home also. That has really made the old 19' seem a lot bigger. It will be a number of years yet before our daughter leaves the nest, But I expect that the 19' will grow a bit more at that time. now I just have to keep saying to myself, 'don't look at the 5.0TA, don't look at the 5.0TA, don't look at the 5.0TA, ...'

Dave, if you want a 5.0, the U.S. dollar is so high right now. You might look at the options you want and see.

High US dollars are not going to benefit me. I live, breathe and work in Canada and deal in loonies.

By the end of the second week, I was going nutz. Storage was a PITA. I hate totes. They're always in the way or in the tug! There's no comparison between a 13 foot cabin (and storage) and one nearly 20 feet, and all the storage... SWOON.

The interesting part is there's only a few short inches in length between my 16' Scamp and pickup (6.5 box) and Ten Forward (also 6.5 box). But, I get almost seven more feet of living space. THAT is huge.

Ten Forward is nearly a year old and I'm just as thrilled today as the day I picked up the trailer in Sumas last July.

Best of luck on your decision.

Happy Anniversary DonnaD! Sounds like a great excuse for a party!!!!
