Vintage age

At what age does an RV become a vintage unit?

Vintage has become a politically correct term, which means it has lost its original meaning. At one point in time, it carried the conotation of a classic, rare, highly sought after. Now it just means older, but trying to be PC about it.

I think of "vintage" as a mindset. There are no "vintage" police that I know of, so if you think it's vintage, it most likely is!

bap,

This 28-year-old looks in the mirror and wonders...what happened to the wrapper. I still have a young mindset, but the wrinkles remind me that I'm a product of the 60s as well. I have wondered if I could give up an entire year and get a new one, would I. The answer is always a resounding NO. Every year has memories I refuse to give up.

Put another way, I'm vintage times three.

Oh you whinny guys, ha, I'm just thankful to God that I'm in good health and every thing works.
I think we sometimes think vintage and antique as the same. I like to think as vintage as representing a high quality of a past time as from dictionary.com. A long while back, I heard that a car must be 20 years old to be an antique and a truck must be 30 years old to be an antique. Or was it 30 years for a car and 20 years for a truck? I don't remember. I guess you might call me an antique and maybe vintage.
