Old guy starting over

I havenít camped since my kids were young. Iíll soon be 70 so itís been a long long time. I just bought a 2012 Forest River Grey Wolf toy hauler. Not ready to give up the motorcycle yet. Thought I would try it out and if Iím a happy camper Iíll buy something newer. I stumbled across this forum and it looks like a good place to get some needed info.

Good for you! We started our RV adventures at age 65, wife had camped as a kid but new to me. I have enjoyed learning all about TTs and this forum has been a big help. Get out and enjoy

Never too old. I'm charging down on 80 and can't wait to get my TT out in the woods again.

Don't know how many years I have left but I intend to be a "Moving Target".

Camping is healthy. Welcome aboard.

Congratulations on your purchase and welcome to the forum from Texas!
If that 2012 works for you, there's no need to buy a newer model. Just because it's older, doesn't men it can't 'start over' with a new owner.

Congratulations! You know, there is something to the saying, "We don't slow down because we get old, we get old because we slow down"

My dad going to be 76 in 3 days and is still riding and camping as well. I consider it a gift that I get to share some of his adventures with him.

Here's hoping for many happy miles with your camper and on your bike!
