Full time RVing for 7 months. I just can’t believe it – every day is a blessing and a vacation, with some cloudy days 🙂

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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”.

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.

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