Wink The RV'ers PROFILE... who are you?

A friendly observation! New to this forum, waiting for our RV to arrive and literally stalking this forum - living vicariously through you all, I have noticed that you have some distinct profiles.

1. Retired or empty nesters that travel the country
2. Young families with kids trying to get away from video games and work.
3. Frugal, responsible and independant.

Where are the yuppies and hippies, are you here? What if you had to pigeon hole yourself, how would you discribe yourself??

similar to wvsteve, except I only have 2 kids and one of them is getting ready to fly the coupe this fall.

We are camping next week during spring break and I can't wait! I really need the break and get away for a few days!

Some camping background, tent, popup, HTT, and now TT. Took kids camping each Summer during their childhood and now we meet at the beach together and they are now 29, 27, and 22, it is always fun. Kids graduated from college and working full time and doing well. We just got a FR Wildwood LE 29BHBS TT and packed it up today and plan to take to beach for a trial in a couple of weeks, we will park it there, dont have large enough tow vehicle. We have an older , small, and lighter HTT we tow for local trips. Have three kids, empty nest, love having the grandson over and taking him camping. Lots of work in business and busy at church and other ministry work. enjoy outdoors, exercise, family, married over 31 years and loving her, enjoy travelling, rving, fishing, pets, have two dogs, enjoy making new friends and helping people. have a blessed day.

Tented with my parents/siblings growing up.
Tented with my own family when my kids were little.
Bought a tent trailer in 1996 and used it until wife decided she couldn't live without a bathroom!
Traded for a 2003 Keystone Outback (in 2002)
Decided we wanted to rent a 'seasonal' camping space, and wanted to upsize.
Traded for a 2008 Salem Park Trailer (in 2007)
We are/were 'empty nesters', but you know how kids move out/in. Now we have a grandaughter we love to bring out to the lake...and it's 'fun' again!

Ahhhh the camping memories....wouldn't trade all the places, faces, and memories for nothin'!

Enjoy your future!

Been camping since I was a year old. My wife came with a few times to my parents camper while we were dating. We got a tent and all the extras for a wedding present from my parents. We moved to SD (from MN) and had a little guy. It was way to hot last year so no tenting. He turned 1 a couple weeks ago so we just bought our first camper. Much nicer than what I would have started in but hey why not go big right away.
