    Having just retired a Fleetwood PUP, I was searching for our next one.


    I did an unscientific survey of 12 brands of trailers, by counting the number of pages where their names were mentioned in the Subject w/in 999 & 9999 days. Being that 100 entries is the limit which is roughly 29 pages, for some brands such as Coleman 29 pages is hit 137 days, thus hits the limit. There is some double counting such a when the Subject has " Fleetwood/Coleman".


    So using both 9999 and 999 days we can get an impression of who hit the limit the quickest (most popular) and which one is most popular in the most recent period
    (popular being spoken about).


    Here are the results:

    Ahhh, but what you really want to know is what was said about the brand when it was mentioned. Maybe a brand is mentioned a lot because so many people praise it or because they damn it.

    I honestly feel a poll would give better results, I'm sure a lot of those posts are mods or help fixing things...

    Unfortunately, spelling counts. Maybe Coachmen is so low in results because the OP searched on Coachman. And it goes the other way, too. If people love Somerset trailers, we won't notice it under Somerset searches. And, so on.

    True, but for a 20 min project, with no real significance, just wanted to see what everyone is either praising or complaining about.

    On the other hand my post on "wheres all the starcraft owners" on the general discussion board has 94 replies which I would say aprox. (I didn't count) has 70ish happy starcraft owners, but would only count as 1 on the search function

    Chalet is missing too. Also, what about the Livin' Lite series, e.g., Quicksilver, CampLite, etc.?

    I voted jayco since wheel camper isn't up there...but it's won my heart (swoon, turquoise exterior). My good friends own a Dutchman and adore it. I prefer the vintage. I like projects, lol.

    Oh I voted and am the lone person. What the heck mine is not even made anymore. Thor made the scamper and understand that maybe 2003 was the last. I have a 2002 17a sport.
