Not if you're posting on iRV2. Our vintage section states "RV's 20 years old or older"

Vintage is what you make it.
Love that rig! You can always put the green shag back in

You got me on the glass exterior vs. just aluminum though; I sure would include GMCs and those with a similar design like yours as "vintage".

You just have to keep that special vibe going when your "remodel". It would be very cool to figure out how to mount a small small flat screen in a front "frame" of a 60s portable tv....

If your RV has an original Ross Perot for President bumper sticker it's a classic!...

Couple more days and I will be able to move into the vintage forum with my 1996 Damon Daybreak.

Good morning;

Yes, this thread or topic is old, but I do not see the answer to my question anywhere in the discussion. And as our vehicles age (as we do) the question will have wider application.

This question is one that I have had for a long time. Even the maker's brand forum did not have a definition for what it took to be considered either "vintage" or "a classic."

I guess that mine now at 29 years old will fit either definition for "Vintage" at either 20 or 25 years old.

So, how do you determine how something becomes "a classic" or something similar? I have wondered if that is done solely by age, or is there something more subjective involved? Are there any definite objective standards? If so, what do we look for, or where do we look, or by how many votes (if it is a popularity contest), or in what other way or by what other standards do we decide this?

Yes, I do agree that my motor home does have an excessive accumulation of years, but then, so do I. And, I have not been able to find in the modern motor homes available any that meet a basic criterion that I have for my intended uses for my motor home, and that is having a vehicle height that does not exceed about 10 feet above the roadway, so that there is room up there for antennas.

My understanding is 25 years or older, I assume for a motorhome too. Mine is a 1992 American Eagle so almost there.

Vintage is a term used by promoters. Classic is a term defined the Classic Car Club of America, the CCCA.

Here's the list: Classic Car Club of America ? Approved Classics

The term used and the exact age varies by state to state but in general an Antique Automobile must be 25 years or more old to qualify for the special license plates and reduced registration fees.

The Antique Automobile Club of America accepts vehicles 25 years old or older and if you're thinking of entering your rig at Hershey, PA here's the guidelines:
