As long as I can navigate the steps, They will have to drag and kick me out of my RV.

Hi Folks, I'm 60 my wife is 61. I started camping with my aunt and uncle and there 4 children in tents. When I was old enough to drive I bought a used tent trailer that was a tent that you put up by hand on a plywood box. I then met my wife and then we bought a real pop up that was just a sleeping area nothing else. When we had children we bought another pop up that had a sink, heat and stove. We now have a 30ft. V-lite and are retired. This trailer has everything (we used to think that people that had these kind of trailers were not real campers). We just wanted something that we did not have to put up or take down in the rain.

63 & 61 and been at it since I was a youngster. I was tent camping with my family as a little guy. Then DW and myself started camping in the late 70s with a PUP until the kids got older. Then 15 years ago we got back into it with a 26' Jayco TT. We upgraded to a 35' TT and now a 38' Wildcat 5er. Both of us are now retired and planning to leave for Arizona next week to travel the sites. Our plan is to travel the south in the winters and tour the north country during the summer. We also have a family cottage on Lake Superior where meet with the family to enjoy summers with the 5er. Things my slow down with age but there will always be seasonal home for our 5er and us on the lake.

Hello all. I'm 44 and my DW is 41. Also in our clan is our DS10 and DD7... And a 2-year old Goldendoodle. Recently purchased our third TT in four years. Wife has finally found "the one." We have been averaging around 40 nights per year... But will more than likely cut that back a little this year (but we said that last year too). Love going to new places but still having our "vacation home" come along with us.

We just gave up on the lifestyle in November. We had a 32' Georgetown Class A but in 2014 we never went out with it. We had a very busy year, as it was our 50th wedding anniversary and DW's 70th birthday in August (we were married on her 20th birthday).

We concluded that, at our age (73 and 70 respectively), RV activity was losing its lustre, so we decided to sell. We've had an interesting experience with a local consignment dealer, but we got things sorted out eventually.

We're now definitely "former RVers" and don't plan to re-enter the fray. It helps that we live in a really nice waterfront city with lots of community activities and access to the San Juan ferry system just 3/4 of a mile from our house.

I'm 31, DW is 29, kids 6,4,1 and going to pick up our new home away from home Monday. We started camping in 09 when my father bought us a 20' TT for family recreation and it's been our favorite thing to do ever since.

35 and the wife is 34, we have two daughters 3yr old and a 10 mth. then the two Labs, Luke and Bueax.

When been RVing for about 3 yrs now. We really did not use the RV much this past year due to building a house that consumed every spare moment and also the birth of my youngest. Now we are about to start hitting the road again. Just traded off the the Toy Hauler for a Cedar Creek 38FL. Should have it Friday and then taking it out on Tuesday for a break in trip.

I am going on 76, wife is going on 75. We bought a new trailer last Spring and intend to use it for several years. If you want to go down hill fast, just start doing nothing. We enjoy going for about one week at a time and part of the fun is setting up and watching everyone else, lots of family dicussions!! We also have an 8 month old Dachshund puppy and he makes it more fun.

I'm 36 and DW is 38. We grew up camping but never thought we would do it ourselves, but we travel within our state multiple times a year and thought getting a trailer make sense to see more of the state. So with my car just coincidentally having the tow package, we purchased a 17ft upright before the season started last year to save the most $$$.

I am 54 and DW 55. On our 4th RV and have been camping all of my life. Looking forward to retirement and part timing with friends. Two older kids (mid 20's) out of the house and one 13yr old left. He came along when we were both 43. Will get him settled in college before hitting the road. That makes our target date 5-7 yrs away.
