So I just realized my post above says we have a Damon Outlaw. We in fact have a Damon Intruder. We looked at the Outlaw but my claustrophobia would not allow me to sleep in the loft. I should probably not post things when I am multitasking.

Will then sell the DW's Hemi Jeep and get something lighter and better mileage than her Grand Cherokee.
Congrats on your wife's retirement and exciting to be hitting the road.

We had a 1995 Bounder 34J for about 12 years. Great almost totally trouble free coach except for basement door latches. Believe I replaced everyone of them at least once.

Poll: How old are you? Post: What you drive/tow?

I'm 63 young but the old geezer I see in the mirror is getting rather decrepit looking. My wife (60) evidently has a higher quality mirror! Our tow is a 2002 Honda Accord.

I am now 62 and a Full Timer. I drive an 08 Damon Outlaw carrying inside a Harley and Cricket Golf Cart.

The Poll is interesting but would be nice if it included sex of drivers, identify full timers, and broke down the age of seniors into smaller segments.

I will do that, though I have posted before.

Female, will be age 69 next March.
Travel with my 43 year old mildly mentally challenged daughter
A 19 year old kitty, Miss Black

My husband is still working and since he travels outside the
country and is only home for 3 weeks every 8 weeks, of course
he likes being home. He says he will retire end of next year
and will be 69 also. Just not certain he will want to go.

We are not fulltime, due to yard, garden, and other things,
I generally only go in the winter. Hope to go a bit more this
coming summer.

I have a 1992 American Eagle and now tow a 2013 Cadillac
SRX 4 down.

I hope to be able to go quite a few more years, I don't really
drive much at night and the motorhome not at all. It depends
on how good my eyes stay as to how long I will continue going.
I love it.

She and I are leaving after Christmas for Texas for a month, then
home for hubby in February and after he goes back head for Florida
for a month or more. Anxious to get going!
