Hey, just turned 40. 40' coach too. We get to campgrounds and people approach to give advice. usually while I am 'listening', my wife is backing the coach in. Love it. I offer them a beer while my 10 year old daughter is helping me hook up the sewer pipe.

I am 39 for a while and just bought my first motorhome of any kind last month: A 2007 Damon Outlaw. Usually have to explain that I still work full-time. Many of asked how I made so much money. They don't understand it wasn't hard if you have no debt. We avoided buying a house just so we could save up enough of a downpayment to get an affordable monthly payment and still get to use it.

All my friends think we are weird but my wife, 10 year old, and I all are having a great time so far!

I'm 49 and DW is 51, We've both been RV'rs even during prior marriages. Our first RV together was a spanking new 32 ft Shasta 5R. Loved every minute of it. We decided we did not want to go into debt again so we chose this little 28.6 ft Pace Arrow. Vintage 1979. we liked the layout. Price and most of all making it ours the way we wanted. Low miles, good drive train etc. We just moved in tonight and while we have some ways to go on it we're both much more relaxed then we've been in years. Just a FYI. I bought my first class A when I was just 24. It was a 24 or 26 ft Chinook. very vintage and very classy and I thought I was something. But it showed me that just getting away and still having it all was worth more then the few bucks spent!
