At least in Heaven, RVs will be perfect, and I won't have to keep fixing them.

Almost 47, family of three and pulling a 25', it's our first trailer and we love it.

It's also just the right size that'll get you into almost any campground because all the other spots for bigger trailers/RVs are usually full. I know this because we just reserved camping spots last week for spring break and memorial weekend at two different state beaches

It would be interesting to bump the data received from this poll against the age/equipment type and length of the big rig drivers just for comparison.

As far as I know there's no age limit for the big rig drivers,just duty time limits.

I'll be 67 yrs old next month and have a 41' fifth pulled with a 1 ton. You are as young as you feel - your physical and mental health is what counts. I've seen 40 yr olds that couldn't get a 8 ft trailer in a camping spot if they had to do any backing up.

Camped 2014 - none yet
Retired? Not yet, but I am sick and tired - does that count?
