  5. Rene Maloon

    Hubby is 75 I’m 71. We have been RVing since 2001. We married late in 1998, First time camping we had a blow up mattress in the back of the pickup. It went flat in the middle of the night. Also camped with only an outhouse in camp grounds. I said I want my own bed & potty or no more camping. 1st one was a cabover camper. Next was a 26 ft. Coachman C class, then we “traded up to an A class until my hubby found the one we now have, A Tioga C class with a pop-out. Already been to Salt Lake City & back, Long trip from Spokane.

    I’m 73, wife is 69. I like younger women. We part time with a group of fellow military retirees twice a year. We have a Montana High Country 5th Wheel and love it. We previously have had 2 different trailers. Been at it for about 15 years.

  8. Clark

    We are both 75 and have been RVing since 1967, We are on our 2nd HR Endeavor (05 40WDS ) tried a Class C but could not take the noise.
    Hope to go fulltime next year. Downsizing now!
    Happy Trails and Keep on moving.

  9. Les

    Camped in a tents with 30 friends and relatives the second week of our honeymoon, 9/68. In 77, two kids, purchased used pop-up. Retired now with 06 Hartland 3055 BigHorn and as wife tells everyone we pull it with an 06 BigHorn. Camp grounds have certainly changed but so have we. We use our camper as a traveling home. Last summer we covered 9000 miles in 10 weeks. We like to drive 400-600 miles a day stopping overnight then traveling a second day stopping for a week or two. We use our home as base to sightsee 100 miles in any direction. Thus as long as a campground is safe and has hookups we need we’re happy.

  10. Debbie and Mike

    Have been seasonal for 6 years as campground hosts. Became full time in March. Wife: 62, hubbie: 67

  11. Phil

    Been rving over 30 years .I’m now a widow at 70 that still wants to do some traveling. I”ve turned into a winter snowbird and visit my kids in Florida in my 37 ft class A.

  12. Luft Pfeiff

    I missed entering my motorhome name. Very personal “LuftHaus”. Both refer to my German ancestry. Luft is short for Luftwaffe, stems from my Navy fighter pilot days. Haus should be obvious. Started RVing 1965, pickup camper, wife and four kids. Eventually all states and provinces, multiple times. Now age 88.7.

  14. Dart

    We are 83 & 81, have been RV’ing since 1968. Our Lazy Daze IB is kept up as an escape capsule for when the big one hits central Florida.

  15. Vic Bunn

    I’m 78 & my wife is 67. We’re part time travelers. We’ll put on six-seven thousand miles this summer, going from Washington State to New York State to attend my 60th high school reunion. The rest of our time is consumed feeding & photographing wildlife here in the Okanogan Mountains of north central washington on the Canadian border.

  16. Susan

    I’m 66 and hubby is 69. We started full timing a year ago, with no experience. We did go to RV Bootcamp to learn a few things. That was an eye opener! We’ve put in over 30k miles in a year.

  17. Mike Whelan

    I am 67 and my wife is 68 (I love older women). we are both retired and part timers. We do a bit of snow birding and shorter treks during the summer months as we live in one of the best places in the world in the summer time. We have been RVing it all of our lives using everything from a ground tarp to a Class A. I have to admit the Class A is more comfortable so I doubt if we will use many more ground tarps under the stars. Love the life style but just can’t quite get our head around full timing.

  18. Nancy

    I am 59. I pull a 2015′ Evergreen Everlite 232 RBS, 28′. My only concern is that I will stay a good driver, my knees get me up and down the entry stairs, and that one day I might bump up to a Class A or C so I don’t always need to wrestle the weight distribution bars onto the hitch. I am a woman, survived Breast Cancer, the surgeries and the treatments. Not expected to get it again, going on 9 years, but had to have surgery again because one of the “tires” went flat. Made it thru fine, but all I am concerned about is that I had to have the surgery right in the middle of camping season!! Trying to just think positive and not put the age thing in my head, keeping my thoughts looking forward vs limited by a number. What we think has such an impact on how and what we do. Final thought, “I’m going camping”.

    1. Debbie Hansen

      Way to go Nancy! I’m 57 and this is my second year of solo camping with my pup Ginger! Hope you have a great Summer of traveling stay positive and strong!

  19. Ben

    I am 39. My wife and I got our camper 4 years ago after our son was born. We have a 30 ft travel trailer that we have managed to use almost once a month since its purchase. We now have a 1 year old daughter. Both of the kids get super excited when we start loading the camper. We hope our kids will grow up with an appreciation of the outdoors and be less tied to the electronics that we are all bombarded with.

  20. squeakytiki

    I go from ‘in my 40’s’ to ‘in my 50’s’ in a couple of months though…

  21. Joe Spence

    i am 75 started serious rvying 4 years with a M/H we are snowbirds. i am sorry we didn’t start sooner

  22. Lois Greene

    I am 69 and my husband is 66. I robbed the cradle ladies! We just started using a wonderful truck camper a few months ago. Hubby refuses to “pull anything”. With his huge 3500. Dodge Ram diesel he could pull a house but not so. At least not yet. I guess we will see how well we do living in such close quarters at least a few weeks at a time!

  23. Ron Beam

    I’m 71, Bought our first camper (Apache Roamer 1973) been at it off and on since Wife loved it and was ready to go at a drop of the hat. Since wife passed away 3 years ago I picked up used Gulfstream class c and intend to make it my primary residence with Florida air show in winter and at Wisconsin airshow at least all July (minimum) for summer. Call camper Petunia (Like porky girlfriend) because she is quick on her feet with that V10 and will pass everything but a gas station

  33. Eleanor Leeper

    years old and am in my 6th BORN FREE RV. Now that I am a widow

    I am full timing it. My kids haven’t taken my keys away from me yet!!!

  34. Greg Illes

    I think you should run this survey twice a year, and run a plot of the results. We’re seeing (in the past couple of years) a reported increase in younger RVers, and it would be very interesting to see whether it is reflected in subscriber percentages.

  35. Lillian Penny

    Been Rving since 1954, and don’t plan on giving it up anytime soon. I am 81 DH #3 is 76. Both still active and in good health. See you down the road.

  36. Chuck& Shirley Cline

    We have camped since the 80’s but bought our 97 Georgie Boy 36ft class A in 2012 & took our first voyage alone to Florida in 2013. Evolved from that to a winter residence in a campground down there but still use the RV to go to Nascar races. We are both in our 70’s.

  37. Wayne Justice

    I am 74 now but my wife is 54 she does all the driving and always has. We are on our 2nd class C been RVing sine 2001 and have logged about 140th miles. A year ago when I found out I had cancer we had to travel to hospitals a long way from home and found that we could stay in our RV close to the hospital while I am being treated. So the RV is good for more that just traveling, its our home away from home in time of need

  38. Alan Phillips

    You know you’re getting older when biscuits and gravy are replaced by oatmeal you keep the RV to have a restroom handy.

  39. Steve

    Been full time since 2001, in a 1996 34 ft NuWa 5th wheel
    I’m in my mid 60’s now

  40. Jim

    Looks like by 80 I have a small chance of still RVing. Better get busy, the next ten years will fly by fast!

  41. Linda Scott

    We’re both 69. We started raving in 1991.

  42. Luanne Dennison

    I am in my 70s and hubby is 80 tho he always gives his age as younger than me. We have had our Chinook RV since 2005 and love it. Wish we had discovered this lifestyle sooner. Before our RV we had a cabin cruiser on the Mississippi river and took several long trips. We sort of exchanged water for the road and love how it broadened our travel experience. We plan to continue as long as one of us is not dry docked and can safely pilot er….drive.

  43. Paul Schmidt

    Will turn 70 in November and hopefully I’ll still have time to get into a class A and enjoy some rving.

  44. steve gershey

    Been rv’ing since 78, 74 yrs old now towin a 38 ft ultralite, most likely will croak in a campground but wont fall over, too crowded!

      😀 😀 But kind of a sad statement on the state of affairs at campgrounds, at the same time. —Diane at
