What's your tow vehicle / trailer timeline?

Not counting tent camping in the '70's, cabin camping in the '80's or boat camping in the '90's...

I bought my first camper/trailer/RV ten years ago, just yesterday compared to some on this site.

2000 F150 SuperCab 2WD 5.4 gas -
1994 Starcraft Pop-up Slide-in Truck Camper / 2008 Jayco 26BH TT

2008 F250 Crewcab 4X4 V10 gas -
2008 Jayco 26BH TT / 2009 Jayco 32BHDS TT / 2013 Torque 321 FW TH

2013 F350 Crewcab FX4 DRW 6.7 diesel -

Tent and VW van camping in the 70's,
Family tent, rental pop-ups, and Euro caravan rentals in the 80's,
For work I "camped" in two shelter halves and painted my face green with an AF Mobile TACS system in Europe,
Motorcycle camped with BMWs and Moto Guzzi's, slept on ground in 90's and 00's.
Recalled to Active Duty at 59, recently fully retired, wife and I bought the Coleman. For us, it's the Hilton!

Tent camped from 1970-1999, had use of a pop up for about a year in 1982.
Monster pop up (2000 Coleman Niagara) from 2000-2009 also had a Cardinal 5'ver for a couple of years for work and a 1975 Airstream, also for work. Sold the Cardinal, still have the Airstream but it is torn down for a full rehab. Got tired of working and not camping, so bought a Coleman CM16FBS about a month ago, been camping twice and going again in two weeks.

For towing we started with a 1998 Exploder, then a 2003 F150 Lariat Super cab, 4.6l V-8 factory tow package. The monster truck is a 1996 F350 Crew Cab, Dually, Power Stroke with 4:10LS rear end... "in it or on it, IT IS going with it!"
