I look old...but don't feel old. I am 51(just turned) and DW is 42. I just started camping semi-regular. Did some tent camping through the years. DW camped in TT in her previous life. Only 1 1/2 years for us. I think honestly I like it more than DW. It seems I am the instigator of the last several trips.

Suggestions on fixing this are welcome.

I'm 30 and my wife is 28. We started with a 16' TT for the last 3 years and upgraded to a larger one this past summer. We plan on having some sort of RV for the next 50 years...ish.

How old?

I'm 77 (turning 78 next month) and moved up from a tent trailer to a 28 ft TT in Nov 2013. We plan on taking it to Southern Calif for Jan/Feb. Although I have serious back problems I can still kayak and ride bicycle. Plan on continuing into my 80's. If your health permits, age is of little consequence!!

We are 66 and 67 and not allowed to tell which one is oldest. We camp with several older couples in the mid to late 70's. Looks like there is no magic number as to age as health issues usually are the determining factor. Have seen one guy in his 90's camping so who knows.

I am 65 years old and my DW is 63. I have been retired for several years now. We had a PUP and traded it in on a used 2009 Puma 25RS. We have been camping with it since we got it in 2010. We love to camp in the different campgrounds surrounding our area....not far from home but she can still go to work just as easy as coming home, idea. She is planning on retiring this coming Aug. 2015. We didn't get much camping in last year because of a family problem...this made me think...hey we are not getting any younger. Another day is worth more than it was years ago. I have some things kicking in that I did not have last year which makes me a little slower than I was. We hope to do more traveling with ours and not have to be in a big hurry because of time constraints.
