    We paid $4200 for our ntu 2003 Jayco Qwest 12A, bought in May of this year.

    It was kept in a heated garage from one owner, barely used since bought new and kept in immaculate condition. We couldn't pass it up.

    I paid $100 for a 1987 StarCraft Starstream. I'm a sucker for a project and have enjoyed the challenge, but it isn't for everyone. I have a total of about $400 and maybe 90 hours of work into it. Loving the old girl. Looking forward to a six day camp starting tomorrow afternoon.

    Just noticed I congratulated someone but never answered myself.

    I dropped 10K for my Fleetwood Evolution E3. I had found one for 9K, but it was out West and I would have spent more in gas than I would have saved to get it

    Also about to trade my Jeep on a vintage Travel Trailer for my wife.. She wants something she can turn the cute up in and restore to better than former glory for girl trips and weekends without the kids (she's a artist so things tend to get crazy when we restore things). I think I may have created a camping monster. Haha.. Little does she know I'm already looking at vintage trucks from the same year to restore

    I just got me a 1988 Coleman Columbia off CraigsList $450...kinda rough and needing some good loving (like new canvas/cushion covers) some wood and a serious deep cleaning. Its my first, and going to be a work in progress for this fall, still probably going to take it out as it is just to get out once the local parks start to empty out.

    $2750 for a 2002 Coleman Cottonwood. Very good condition. Came fully stocked with all camping gear, towels, a tabletop gas grill, and very clean. A/C, awning, king and full size beds, inside/outside stove, 3 way fridge, electric brakes. We've only driveway camped so far but we are very happy with it. And to beat all, after looking for many months, we found this one on Craigs list and it was only about 15 miles away in the next county over from us. Need to mount LP tank on it and get a battery for it.

    $4500 for the Coleman Westlake, 2002 model year. Garage kept by a guy even more fastidious than me. No water damage, everything works, even the tires are original and in great shape. In fact, the original sheets are still brand new, so it was almost like driving it off the showroom without worrying it might be a lemon. Loving it so far, just need to relax and use it more!

    Paid about $6,000.00 in May 2012 for a brand new Jayco Sport 8 with awning, 3 way fridge, Propane Furnace & marine battery. Also got a tin of the best soft chocolate cookies we ever had (with reciepe) and a bunch of can cozzies. bought the 8 footer due to towing limitations, a small area in our driveway where we could store it, and the fact that it's just DH & I and perfect for us - having the time of our lives with it!

    I recently paid $7995 for a slightly used 2012 Starcraft Comet 816. It has almost all the options (3-way fridge, furnace, electric water pump, marine battery, in/out stove, etc.) except for the bag awning, so I'm looking for one of those. Have camped in it once so far, looking to get some Fall camping in. Everything works as it should, and I've had no problems.

    Went with the smallest model (8ft box, 12 ft towing length) so it would fit in my not-so-large San Francisco garage.

    We paid $1 to haul off our 2001 Palomino Mustang. What a blessing it has been. We have about $500 in a ceiling repair, new fabric for cushions and curtains and other repairs on the exterior. Love it! Took it out two nights before school started for me and the kids but hoping for 4 more nights by October.

    I paid $900 for a '92 Coleman Destiny Royale. Canvas has a few patches, screens have a few tiny holes, faucet needs repair/ replacement (it leaks). Otherwise it has full and queen bunks and a dinette that turns into a twin. Awning, sink, 3 burner indoor/outdoor stove. 1 propane tank.
    It has those few issues but I'm still thrilled [:D]
