Just 40 here. We started at this one yr ago. Don't know that I'll ever make it to full-timing as I'll be working for a long time to pay for the RV and our 5 kids.

My ex and I got our first TT when we were 21 and lived in it full time. At 62, I'm apparently the oldest to chime in so far but I seriously doubt I'm the oldest one here.

I'm almost 72 but I'm young at heart. Does that qualify

I'm 46 and going on my 3rd summer with a large 5th wheel spending big bucks at rv parks. Sad to say, not full time. I have owned a couple of smaller travel trailers for weekend camping in the woods since my 20's, but never really considered that RVing.

Just starting at 41. 3 kids, wife, and dog. We want to spend a few more quality years with the kids before they start heading off to college.

46 here, started back in 1993 with a small 24ft. gas class A from the early 80's. I moved to a 34ft. 5th wheel in 1996, then traded it for a 36ft. Mountain Aire 5th in 1998.

Then I traded it for the Newmar 40ft. class A we have now in 2009. It had been sitting on the dealers lot since Dec. of 2007 and both the value offered for the 5th plus the price of the new unit made it irresistable.

Camped all of my life with my parents in various TT's. First one was a 14ft. Scottie Highlander.

My husband and I are both 44. This is our first experience RVing- bought a 2001 Winnebago Chieftain and are seeing the states for a year. We've got two months under our belt- we've learned a lot about our RV and the country. Enjoying time with the kids and each other. Really appreciate this site and all the knowledge here. Love to use "search" for my questions since most of them have already been answered!

44 and 42

Been RV'ing in one form or the other for 15-20 years. Mostly toy haulers and dirt biking. Got my first class A from the parents a year ago.

If you count vacations as a kid I've been "Rving" for 30+ years.
