Had a neighbor here a couple of years ago that was a WW2 vet. About 85 and still hauling. He would go out every day to fly his RC airplanes.

We have friends that have a Newmar 5th wheel. She is 91 and he is 90. Drove from Indiana to Oregon last summer. Going STRONG. He was a glider pilot in WWII. They do not use GPS. She makes a list of the turns for the day from her maps. They then use POST notes on the dash. After they make a turn, etc., she pulls that note off the dash. Maybe better than the way we do it!!!

They have a 36 foot 5th wheel that was purchased 2 years ago with a loan that was for 12 years. They were recognized by Newmar for their purchase. There is not a mark on the 5th wheel or the dually truck. It is a team effort. They could ot do this if they did not have help from their spouse.

We all have a few years of rv travel remaining!!!
