I'm 65, DW is 66, retired in 2010 (for the 3rd time!), traded in our 2004 Monaco Knight this past May for a 38" Open Range 5th wheel not being pulled by anything. Dealer takes care of towing and storing here in Red Deer AB where we spend the summer before going down to our mobile home in Apache Junction AZ. We like traveling out on 1-2 day touring trips to see the sights in the Canadian and American west.....among other things we like doing, of course.

Surely I must be doing something wrong, I'm in my mid 50`s, DW nearly 50 with two teenagers - on my third career path - no retirement in sight (even with binoculars!).
But all in all, life is good. We have lived all over this beautiful country, I've traveled much of the world and we are able to continue that trend. Now, if I can just figure out which demographic I fit in...

Yeah, I can relate. (No retirement in site)

According to my drivers license I'll be 52 in a few weeks, although mentally I am still 16. Had my kids young - I've learned they are much like boomerangs though lol, they do come back. My Daughter (youngest 23) and my 4 yr old Grandson (1 of 4 grandkids) live with me here in San Diego - the rest back in Michigan.

My Rig - 1995 Fleetwood Southwind 33LW, tow vehicle 1968 Ford Mustang Convertible (trailered)

I decided to retire while I am still working.. shhhh haven't told anyone yet

I just threw that retirement crap in for fun.

The last 4 years took care of any retirement plans that I had. Gonna have to work till I drop, hence the RV. At least we get to take some long weekends and travel around a bit, and I can still do some work from the road if need be.

Age 73 as is my DW (celebrated 50th anniversary last year) - been RVing for many years - have owned 2 TT and 4 MH's. 1st 3 MH's were class A but downsized to a B+ last year. While we enjoyed the Class A's, the smaller rig is right sized for us now. We have winter and summer homes now so our travel pattern has changed. Towed a dingy for last 12 years but don't allways tow now with the smaller rig. Retired from the Air Force after 30 years service in 88 and then started a business and sold it 4 years ago and now just enjoying spending our childrens inheritance. Hope the good health lasts so we can be RVing and golfing for many years to come.

I'm 75 and wife is 65. I retired in 1997. In 2004 we sold our beach house and bought our first motorhome. In 2006 we bought a new 2005 Winnebago Journey 39F and travel part time. Health is great and we're having a wonderful time.
