The way I see it in my community, I don"t see many over 86 RV'ing, a few have

big riggs that are kept a RV parks, an they commute to and from them. I'm 79.

I don't think age means much.  Health and condition and money and type of RV mean something.  Many people out there shouldn't be driving a car much less an RV, and some may be 30 and some 80.  I don't herd a 40 foot behemoth down the road, so I don't know what that takes.  If I live long enough to be decrepit and can't hook up or drive properly, it will be time to quit.

I would agree that age has little to do with this subject, health is the major factor.  Another is whether the "RV" community will remain helpful.  I can't count the number of times I've stopped to help someone, whether it be to put a cover over the TT or to help change a tire.  We are in our "70's" and figure our TT will last about 10 - 15 years. Until then I might have to get creative in regard to the physical activities such as hooking and unhooking.

My wife an I are in our early 70's, we don't intend to stop RVing until we are too decrepit to travel. We have planned to do this for 10 or more years before we retired.We have been camp hosts for the past three years an have enjoyed doing that.

I’ve been full time in my 39 foot, class A, and towing my car since I was 62. I am now 73 1/2.  By myself with 2 dogs.  While I’ve seen my strength ebb, my balance is still great, my driving skills are still top notch, I can still hook up and unhook my tow in 10 minutes time no problem. While I used to walk my dogs 3 miles a day, I know walk them 1-2 miles a day. After 3 trips across our beautiful USA, I pretty much now winter in Vegas for 6 months and drive 1200 miles start of spring to the great PNW for 6 months. It is for sure getting harder to do all this by myself, but as long as my health stays good, I think I got a few more years in me to keep enjoying the summer and winter in my 2 happy places!
