How old is Vintage?

In the car world I think its 20 years before its classified as "vintage" or Antique. Is there a similar "benchmark" for RVs?
I know mine won't qualify, but reading all these fine posts makes me look forward to it. Love all the photos!

As noted, this site claims 20 years old is vintage. Another Yahoo vintage RV group claims 25 years old.

I think if you look at it and it looks old, but nice, it vintage. Kind of like me! If you really wanted to nail it down i woud say the 60's back, the rest are just working it's way to vintage...does that make sense...

In the state of Wisconsin's eyes it's 20 years. That is how old it needs to be to get "collector" plates.

Well folks in 2004 when I had "Morty" a '72 Kencraft trailer coach and inquired with the management about adding a Vintage RV forum we simply chose 20 years old. But don't worry, if your rig is younger you are still welcome. I must say this forum has succeeded way beyond my dreams! Thanks to all the posts it is a wonderful experience. Happy Trails to all!
