My favorites were the "toy haulers" with names like Extreme, Sandstorm, Adrelin, and Monster with vinyl murals of grizzly bears and volcanos! Wow, what an afternoon.
My husband and I are coming at it from a different way. We toured those lots and the RV shows, but nothing really jumped out at us, screaming "you need this". There were some possibles, but they didn't feel right. I rented a 32' (or 34' forget now - huge SOB) motorhome for a month, even though I knew we weren't going to get a motorhome. Wanted to see if I liked the lifestyle and all that. We've never owned a trailer or a motorhome or a tent. After the trip I found out about Escapes.
But when we stepped inside a 21' - WOW! We were blown away by it. We knew it was right for us. And after touring a 19 footer and the 5.0TA, we still know it's right for us.
