Dh and I have been together 5 1/2 yrs and just bought a camper last year in the fall. Got 2 trips in and are learning about each other and our camping styles. We both have owned campers in the past but did not do a lot of pulling. He is 58 and I am 62. Been a while since either of us has camped and we love the exploring new places and experiences.

Camped next to a couple in their 80's. Small 5th wheel and they were loving it. Did watch the Hubby hook-up the next morning, very deliberate, methodical, but did it right and successfull. I'm 70, and looking forward to wearing my 5th wheel out, and we only go during the week, (while the kids are in school). Cool weather, no bugs, and the birds are looking for love and raising young. Best time to be out.

67 & 65 - went full time almost a year ago and haven't looked back. Thinking this could go on 5 to 7 years before we think about sticks and bricks again....Home is wherever we park it

I'm 63 and my wife is 60. We've been camping and RVing since before we were married 40 years ago and intend on continuing as long as our minds and bods will allow us. Contemplated full timing, but still like the home base.

Age is just a state of mind. We have been camping (and boating) for the full 53 years of our marriage and at 76 and 77 respectively our plans are to continue well into our late 80s. We plan ahead at least two years so that the anticipation of new sights and places provides the motivation to stay fit and young at heart. This winter... Florida, this summer we already have a site booked on Lake Huron and next winter we are heading back to New Mexico, Arizona and California. It is a long drive from our home in Ontario Canada but part of the enjoyment is the journey. We have had every type of RV including a Motor home and have now settled for a 32 ft. Rockwood Ultra lite fifth wheel which we tow with our F150 Ford crew cab. Our moniker is stillontheroad. (you can see some of our travel photos and commontary at Plan your travels and prepare your equipment. North, South, East or West we have been there! Use our experiences to plan your trip! - Home (it is not complete yet because we are too busy seeing new places)

wife and i are both 51yrs old, been married 30yrs and been a seasonal for 15 in a campground.

started pulling a 30ft jayco off the hitch for a couple yrs with a 2003 3500 dodge ram 4x4 and thought it would be nice to buy something that would be more comfortable.

bought a 2005 cedar creek 34rlbs last summer, can't wait to hitch this thing to the fifth wheel and run it down the road.
haven a blast

Another former boater/sailer here. Age? Let's say " I'm old enough to know better but to young to resist".
