I think you just need afew times out in it and you will be fine, just a normal feeling that everyone gets when upgrading to a new TT, unless you drive semis' for a living.........

Bought my first RV tow behind when I was 62 and it was a 21'. I'm now 65, retired, and just stepped up to 33' FW. It's a lot different but I'm getting used to it. I plan a 1100 mile fall color tour in September and then will be going to Florida in February.

My first TT was 31ft now age 42 and I have a 40ft FW 54ft total with truck. I don't think age is all that important you just need to be comfortable towing or driving your rig.

saw a woman driving a cc dually dodge 4x4 (with cummins power of course) pulling a 3 axle toy hauler today. dad was sitting in passenger seat and both were every bit mid 70's. actually, their age and speed matched pretty well too.
