66 and in the market for my first MH.

PS - I'd like to assure everyone out there that is a very, very, very young 66; almost like 56, really.

Growing old disgracefully since 1946.

The DW and I are both 52. Our current RV is a 39' Fleetwood Providence. We tow a Toyota Tacoma double cab.

We have been RVing for about 20 years now, our kids grew up camping. Our first RV was a cab-over camper on a Toyota pickup. We upgraded later to a 28' travel trailer, then to a 32' Winnebago Adventurer, and now our current rig.

I was forced to retire earlier this year due to a work related back injury. We plan to downsize after January by selling our home, buying a smaller home. This will enable my wife to retire with me, which in turn will allow us to embark on extended RV travel for the first time in our lives.

I am 49 and my wife is 33. We recently purchased a Outlaw so we can haul our motorcycles and explore some great places.

I'm 61 driving an 09 Monaco Cayman, pulling a Porsche race car in a 20' trailer.

I'm faster in my Porsche though!

I am 62. I started rving with a tent trailer then on to a 27 foot trailer and upgraded to a 5th wheel then on to a class C Royal Classic 28ft. Now we drive a Damon Daybreak class A 34ft and tow a VW Golf City on a dolly. And one more year before I completely retire.
