I'm 47 and my partner in crime is 43. We haven't been made to feel any different due to our relative "youth and inexperience" by our fellow older RVer's that we have met while camping!
it's all good!

We're in the SW right now. Spending this week boondocking in Yuma and then heading to San Diego for a month. Should be a couple of other younger RVers in the area this winter. You anywhere close?

We're currently at Santee Lakes (love it), about 14 miles east of San Diego until mid-March. I ran across your blog a couple weeks ago on here, I'd love to pour some adult beverages into you guys in return for long techie discussions about all things solar since we'll be taking the plunge shortly. Let us know when you'll be in the area!

So.....I am intrigued (and jealous) for full timers at this age. So, Wheelingit, would you mind sharing what you do for a living? Not trying to be too personal, just love what you are doing

Sure. Actually we're pretty open about it on the blog. We're both frugal types and worked for ~15 years in the semiconductor industry saving most of our money. Hubby actively invests a portion of what we put aside during that time and manages to pay the RV bills that way. I do a bit of writing too (not much cash in it but a little bit comes thro). It helps the finances that our "kids" all have 4 paws

I know what you mean about camping world. We always seem to be the youngest folks there. We are both in our 40's.

I always seem to be doing things at a younger age. I owned a Goldwing in my early 30's. Talk about a crowd of old people!

Im 44, have only owned the Dynasty for a year, use it to pull the race car mostly, but wish I'd bought it years ago. I know exactly what you mean. We were at a rest stop and had an older guy nosing around a bit, and I'm pretty sociable so we got talking. He asked "So how do you pay for something like that," which was a bit bold, my reply, lol, I pointed to my 21 year old son who was driving and said I don't, he's retired, it's his! Now that was a hoot, long blank stares from that one! I'm sure that sparked a few discussions around his campfire!
