I think you people are on to something!

All in about 2 weeks time I found a used camper (Cherokee 28dd) bought her and took her home. Changed all axel bearings put on new brakes and hit the road headed West for the very first time.
As I was traveling to get the camper the wife started calling and booking campgrounds. We have been on the road for over a week and have atleast one more week to go before we need to be home. We are learning on the fly but having the time of our lives and I think we have stumbled across a new hobby. Can't believe I was 41 before discovering what fun traveling with the family and a camper can be.

Yeah I was 40 when we bought our camper. In a year and a half we have taken 16 trips. Addicted? Why certainly! My wife who is more of a Marriott type of gal, has really gotten into it. Our 10 year old son thinks we have the coolest vacation home because it can go just about anywhere we want to go. Lots of memories are being formed along the way.

Welcome! I was 43 and my better half 48 when we bought our first motorhome a few years ago. Love love love being able to go anywhere and have a "vacation house" with us! We even drive it 2 hours to friends and family, park it in the driveway and have a place to sleep where we are out of the way. Here's to many more happy camping years for you and your family!

I was 24 with a young family when I bought the 1st TT. Had many, went through the Class A phase, now 68 and enjoy 5ers best. After 2 years of jungle camping in the 60s tents never entered my mind.
