Progressive senior RV parks

Looking for progressive thinking RV parks, over 55 ones I have visited have activities geared to big band era, elderly activities.
I am from the Eagles era music and more active entertainments.
Not a Branson fan.

Live and Let Live,
Jo

Hi,
Please post here if you find this place. Prefer ownership over rental. In the meantime, Take It Easy.

We are going to a "over 40" park this afternoon that sounds pretty interesting.
Like a gazillion activities.
We will see how much is really happening.
Something about checking in, but can never leave.......

Good question. We are not ready for a life of bingo and shuffleboard (sorry for the hyperbole).

Make sure you tell us the park name and your review. In my (very limited) experience with over 55 parks, the average age seems closer to 70+.

I think, as those of us on the end of the Baby Boomer era (me included) age, we'll see a shift in the activities/music at the 55+ resorts. I know I'll be pushing for Eagles, Fleetwood Mac, CCR, Styx, Chicago..etc.

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

With all due repeat to the older RVing crowd, the entire RV community needs to be shifting gears quickly to target a younger customer base.

RV resorts, Escapees, FMCA, and even the manufacturers (can someone other than Airstream make a nice contemporary interiors in RVs other than the custom $2M Newell, Prevost, etc.?); we did the best we could when we ordered our Tiffin last year.......

Those now 65-70 were at Wodstock, heck, Joe Perry is 65 and Sammy Hagar is 68 for pete's sake, all the Stones are over 70...... I'm ready to have them lead a sing along, or party at Keith Richards RV!!!!!

Time to change activities, such as actually makeing activities "active". Big band, and 50s music are past thier due date for most active travelers now.

When we decided in early Nov. to do a FL trip from mid Dec to Mid Jan, we decided to pick the Panhandle as we expected it to be a bit younger / more active crowd vs. the "south of I4" sun birds, and were we correct. Had a great time, and going back for late Nov. and Dec this year. And yes, the background music at the pool and pavilion was 60s and 70s rock!

I would also note that this shifting gears to the next generation of retirees is going to be a challenge for the entire retirement business community. My mom is in a lovely senior living community in FL, but I can't think of anyone I know under 70 who would find living there appealing..........

Regards

The place was called Desert Trails just outside Tucson.
There was a different feel to it that's for sure.
The campers have just gotten together and there is a bunch of different activities from mt biking, hiking, cribbage and even 2 writing clubs. It's like a small city.
We only stayed one night as the sites are pretty tight and that's not our choice if we have another option.

The night we were there doing laundry (nice facilities), the rec hall was packed full, lots of laughter from the writing club reading some of their stuff.
Very interesting place!

Progressive? ???
HA. Since when did the Eagles and CCR become progressive? In my mind "progressive" is a political point of view and has little to do with music.
I am 72 years old. I like the Eagles, CCR, the Beatles, the Carpenters, Linda Ronstadt, Johnny Cash, Flatt & Scruggs, Hank Williams Sr., and yes, Frank Sinatra, Glenn Miller and many others. I don't like rap (hip hop) or the new country which is just rap and with a different accent. If you call me a progressive ---- them's fightin' words.

Looks like some baby boomers want the world to march to their beat. Weren't these the same folks that advocated death to all over 30? Looks like they've pushed the age to 70��
