I will drive my coach till I die quietly in my sleep (not like my passengers, who will die screaming in the firey crash).

I'm 69 now. DW is 62. My Dad lived to 90. I have an agreement with kids and DW - they will tell me when I should stop driving and we will purchase a park model down south. So far, I'm a better driver then our kids but not as good a one as DW. Reading this tread, I've decided that DW needs to get more time in behind the wheel. She can back the 5er much better then I can and, while her reaction time is not as good as mine, it is almost as good. Mine is slowing down. When to stop RVing depends upon too many factors to give an absolute age.

Of course, I could just purchase a tank and let the rest of the world worry.

Based on the ages of most people filling campgrounds, their is no age limit. Looks like most stop when they die or run out of money.

Gettin' older ain't for sissies! Do they make a fold-up rocking chair, you know something you can store in a compartment? And what about a nice ramp, so we can get rid of those pesky steps? I'm driving 'til I can't.

I have a very sophisticated, situational activated early warning unit installed in the right seat of our MH. I'm quite sure this unit will, in no uncertain terms, let me know when I'm done. Bob

I'll stop when they pry my cold, dead fingers from the steering wheel.

I'll stop RV'ing when I stop aging and start decomposing!

All kidding aside we will RV until it's no longer physically possible to do so.

We plan to RV until we run out of money or one of us develops serious health issues. Whichever comes first.

I hope to be able to continue enjoying rving until such time as health declines to the point it is no longer feasible. Like someone else said earlier, when that time comes, I will settle into a park model in a spot with mild climate and go medical faucilities.

I plan on full timing when I get my TT and will snowbird it. I may have to cut down on the number of moves as I age until I wind up parked in one place year round. I'll live in it until I die or get dragged, kicking and screaming, to the old folks home.
