In the 40's, still in Phase I of Empty Nest, but already have grands. We use ours as a guest house at our property, chasing the college kids, family reunions, etc. retirement, what's that, w Obama in office I think we will have work forever !

We are having fun checking out the state parks. It's so convenient for all day events when you just need a break and a Dr Pepper, lol. Love the 'quiet hours' at a Rv parks and we snuggle up and watch a movie. Love having our own B & B, vs. staying in a hotel w/ people running in the room above you all night, having a kitchen at your fingertips and not having to repack stuff at hotels. Loving the conveniences of the RV. Any excuse we can to take it out is fun!!!

I'm 44, DW is 42. Until retirement, we are weekend warriors in our Class A with the occasional week or two vacation a year. I'll retire in December, 2025 and DW the following October. Then we'll start doing the snowbird thing while fulltiming in the MH.

I retired 5 years ago from a county government and collect a pension at 57. I'm now at 62. I play with cars in my own shop and people pay me to do that so I guess I'm not really retired. Am I?

45 yo and right now it's long weekends and s two week vacation in the summer. I used to do industrial Safety and preventative maintenance consulting and we live in our 32' TT for 4 years until the economy tanked and business dried up. I now work 40 hrs. A week for the state waiting impatiently for retirement and more traveling.

I'm 36, wife is 33, and we have a 4-year-old. I'm taking a year off work, while kiddo is still pre-school and free to roam. We'll be "full time" for that time, or that's the theory!

It's an excellent theory!

That will be a great conundrum to face if it happens, indeed.

Wife and I are both in our 40's and on our second unit. First one was a 5th wheel and now we have a class A. Self employed and try to take as many trips as possible when work permits. Lots of football, racing last year and a few family trips.

Just got back from the Keys for spring break and a trip to Charlotte for the 4-Wide Nationals. Gonna try and make an east coast run this summer, god willing...

Hey All:
I am 39 and GF is 38. We are pretty much weekend warriors, but took a month off last year and planning another month this year. Anxiously waiting for when we can full time. I work for a small computer service company and make my own schedule. 90% can be done from anywhere and the other 10% can be easily taken care of with a quick flight home or skype. GF's job is more the 9-5 type so we got a couple years to go before she's ready (or shall i say able).

Our 94 Tioga needs a little extra love this spring but should be tops before we take the month of September and head south.

Four of us here... I'm 34 she's 37 and have 2 boys 6 and 3. Have managed to put 10k on the our 05 Escapade since we got it in June of 2013. I also work for a children's hospital in KC. Would like to find a job that I could do from the road but good vacation time so can't complain. Working on my bachelor's in IS so could happen someday. Got back from our spring break trip to New Mexico.. excellent trip.

We are 47 and 41 - I am a lawyer and hubby is a photographer. This is our first year as RV owners, although we rented last year and hubby grew up spending summers in a trailer. This year, we will be taking our TT to a NASCAR race and a few long road trips to visit family. We also have a seasonal spot in a CG on a lake near here for weekends between trips since we can't always get away early enough to make travel, set up, and tear down worth the effort.

Oh! This is a fun thread! We are 57/62 still working full time with plan to retire no later than four years, Lord willing sooner. We bought out first Class A last year. A beautifully taken care of '99 Newmar DutchStar 38ft DP. What a great thing it's been for us! So much fun. Work by way of always having something to do with it but it's so much fun! We live in Phoenix. We have been up to Cottonwood multiple times and took a 1 week to Ridgeway State Park last year and two weeks to Napa/Paso Robles. We have a laundry list of things we want in our next RV but we think we got an amazing first one! Another trip was down through NM from Pagosa Springs all the way down thru Las Cruces. Short trips only for a while but it's been really fun getting our feet wet and figuring out all the ins/outs of RV life. We're planning extended trips when we're retired!

I am 51 and wife is 42. I'm a Technical Advisor & the wife teaches Industrial Safety. We have two boys travel with us and everyone loves it. Last year was our first year with class A RV. We camped every other weekend on average. Took two week trip from Southern Indiana to Black Hills SD, Yellowstone, and Estes Park and loved it. Going to repeat every other weekend this year and go to a couple concerts, holidays, and ten days at the beach. We decided to try this to be a closer family. Hard to put a price on the value of the family time.
