Well I know it's not me as I am 63 and the wife is going to be 62 but her dad is just going to turn 87 and still drives his 98 Bounder 36S. He used to be a trucker and still is alert and doesn't seem to have a problem with it. Unforunately the kids think otherwise and want him to sell it but his wife will not have anything to do with that. I'm staying neutral but there does come a time to lay the keys down. At least they are not taking it back down South this winter. Leaving it stored in Northern MI and flying to Fla. but come next June I'm sure out it will come again.

Turned 71 and bought my 1st LARGE Class A. Decided that as I age I should have a lot of weight and size to protect me in case I start having accidents. I remember a short 98 year old gentleman that applied the same logic when he bought the LARGEST Cadillac he could find. The only problem he had was he couldn't see over the steering wheel, but that didn't seem to deter him from driving.

I'm not sure a larger rig helps with "accidents" I think you may have to simply take more bathroom breaks

I celebrated my 75th last week by replacing the left exhaust manifold gasket and studs (one sheared off). It has been said that"I really know how to have a good time" I mean,how cool can it be to cuddle up with an oily big 8.1 that is ailling?
