I'm 28 and DH is 31! We travel for DH job so are in the RV full time! He's a foreman for an industrial painting company. Jobs can last anywhere from 1 month to a couple years and we never really know when we'll be sent to the next place! I LOVE the RV, we recently renovated it and I'm so in love with it now (especially the dishwasher ). We recently moved out of our rental house (had no other choice, 2 year job with no campgrounds open year round) and I will never again complain about the hour it takes to get the camper ready to move!! This is the thread to the renovation photos Renovating pictures!! and attached is a picture of the outside!

I got a late start on the family life and am in mid forties with two young children and 37 yr old wife.

We love getting up to the mountains and riding quads in southern Alberta. Do an annual trip to Saskatchewan with our 97 gasser Bounder to visit relatives and camping out on the old farmstead.

Love our 36 ft unit with a big slide. Give the kids lots of room to run around even when the weathers bad. Try to live in for at least a total of 30 days a year. Always hoping to do more.

I'm 56, retired from active Army in 96. DW is 47. Professional b2b sales for me, DW going back to school this month to start a new career in the medical field. Since we live very close to Lake Tahoe and the Sierra Nevada mountains we don't have to go very far for some of the greatest camping area's anywhere. We use our RV for Spring and Summer camping and tailgating in the fall. Wanting to get a trailer eventually to start hauling the Harley behind us on camping trips. Borrowed a friends trailer last year and RV'd to Sturgis for the big annual motorcycle rally. Was a blast. The riding area's around our area and Lake Tahoe have some of the most spectacular views anywhere. Gave up on the ATV toy's after rolling one on top of myself and shattering my hip.

What up Txskye

Nice idea for a thread.....I am 37 my wife 30 ( don't tell her father) We both work in the aviation industry (not united or excons) we love our work but leave it there when we come home. We use our Rv primarily for my daughters softball tournaments all over the Houston area but take weekend trips as well. I like the idea that when I go to a weekend tournament I have the option to relax and get out of the heat. An RV makes the difference between a long softball tournament and making it a great family experience. We recently tried La Hacienda near Lake Travis and had a great time. Currently we are counting the days to make the drive to Ft Wilderness to "feed the mouse". If I ever see an RV pulling a white Jeep and the driver has a partial sleeve ill make sure to honk and give the "RV wave".

I am mid 40's, DW is low 40's...we don't use it for work, but get out nearly every weekend in the summer, plus a couple of week long vacations. We usually get 40+ days a season in our rig. 35 or more of these days are boondocking. We had a couple of bumper-pulls in the past, but went to our first moho 5 years ago....now we are on our 3rd (which we intend to keep for a bit) a 32' Baystar.

Just turned 30, wife is 25 and daughter is 10 months. We bought a 1998 Discovery DP to try it out and spend some time as a family. If we like it we'll upgrade in 4-5 years and if we don't then we are not out much money since all the research I did concluded that a 10+ year coach was the best buy in regards to value lost.

I am 47 and work in the power industry on plant improvement projects. I use my RV instead of renting an apartment or staying in a hotel. I fly home most weekends.

I usually try to stay in resort type places away from the job and not in the work-camps that are close to the project. That gives me a mental break each day as well as getting to enjoy the RV lifestyle a bit.

I have a travel trailer at home that I use to go boondocking or camping in the state parks for fun on some of those weekends instead of cutting the grass.

I'm 53 and the DW is 54. I'm an energy management engineer at a large college in the south, the DW is retired, we have always flew and stayed at motels when we traveled until about 2 years ago we bought a Moho and started camping 200-400 mile trips 3-4 days at a time due to my job.

It is a great experience that we have never done to camp I just wish that I had more time to travel in the Moho.

Happy RVing , James

Wifey and I are both 60ish and will be working for a while. She is a HS science teacher and I am in my second career as year around adjunct faculty at a local CC. That isn't enough for trip money so I also work at a local winery doing tastings, tours, inventory and whatever is asked of me. I utilize the trailer by going out and grading papers in it after school. Hey, it's better than not using it!

Hey everybody!
Wife and I are self employed fiber optic contractors. We use our MH for work and play. We typically work from May thru November or December travelling from Job to Job then when Christmas is over and we have things wrapped up at the Sticks and Bricks, we try to head south for fun and relaxation and meeting new folks. Leaving in a couple weeks for FL.
Had our fill of motel rooms and paying extra for our Shih tzu.

Hi- we two were out seeing National Parks together, when we decided half the problem with travel was the hotel/motels we paid for. Yikes! there was always something ; the unknown road ahead-would there be a place to lay our heads-it's late and dark and I'm getting confused, whats on the Garmin?....you know the jig.
Then we got married, and took the jobs out on the road, taking a travel trailer. DH is a union pipewelder. 6 months and I needed more headroom!Sold our TT. We went and got our 38ft.5th wheel on our way across upper Idaho, Montana,to North Dakota's T.Roosevelt Nat.Park, down to Mt. Rushmore/Keystone. WE looked around and saw Devil's Tower in Wyoming, so went there and saw that. Then to Crazy Horse monument, Badlands, and on over to Madison, Indiana. There, along the Ohio river, where the trees opened stood on a hill, our 5th wheel; it was big and white like a WHite Buffalo !! Ha ha! The fall weather had bben beautiful! We hitched it up on the back of our 2008 3500 dodge "dually" and went on over to Tri-States area to visit folks. Pretty much came back to Keystone, S.D., we passed the Deveil's tower over to Sheridan where they'd gotten heavy snow; we turned up the music and sang out loud. Dropped into Billings where the wind was literally blowing sideways across the road. Ate pizza, slept in our own bed, nice! Weather got nicer as we got past Butte, and over the Sawtooth mountains of Idaho, arrived at our campsite in Eastern Washington, sleep is sweet!! No snow. nice. Working there 1 year, had many more adventures. gotta have a dishwasher and washer/dryer.
Currently in Las Vegas; DH working at Ivanpah Solar Generating plant.
