Sign us up! Me and my fiancť have had a class A DP for three years. None of our friends have Rv's as we must be more in a suburban area. We are both in our late 40's and the rig goes with her to fla in the winter (Ocala). We would love to find local friends in the area, SEPA, to plan some local trips when coach is up north. Also, open to fun trips in the winter but she has a tight schedule due to horses when in fla. So yes pencil us in! I have always wanted to get a beach front rv site for new years. Have to schedule in advance I believe but a wish list thing.

Dang - We're missing the 50 cutoff by a year ... lol. Although we still have 2 of our 4 kids at home (15 &13) and they totally keep us on our toes and active - At least we can now become AARP members and get those great senior discounts!!!

Isn't 50 the new 40 or something like that???

We've RV'd since we were in our 30s. Have had a motorhome we bought when we were 50. That said, I think you're either missing something about older RVers or just hanging around with the wrong "older" RVers. We have always enjoyed the company of older RVers. We have received many good tips about where to go and what to see with our RV. And when it comes to sitting around the campfire and telling stories, the older generation has more funny stories than you can shake a stick at and we always have a good laugh when with the older RVers!

Yes Yes Yes. Wife and I are 41, have a 6 year old girl, and as far as RV's are concerned, we right around the corner from you guys.

We dropped FMCA membership this year and gave up as we couldn't find anything that even slightly resembled a young family in that organization. Never even heard of this Energized thing.

Anyway, we are always looking for opportunities to meet up with other families, especially since our daughter has no siblings. Hit me with a PM or some such.

Earl excellent idea. Although I'm 59 the wife is 51 but we do have a 10 yr old at home. Would love to try and do something more with a younger group. But I'll need to cheat on the 50 yr old requirement. We can pretty much go at anytime considering school days. We have been doing the RV thing for a couple of years and have enjoyed it so much.

This is by no means a post against older RV'ers.

It just seems that sometimes when we visit motorcoach resorts, most of the people are of an older generation.

Just this past Easter we were staying at the Naples Motorcoach Resort and struck up a conversation with another couple with younger kids. Turns out the kids are around the same ages, they live four hours from us in NJ and we have met up twice while at different RV resorts this summer.

I wasn't really seeking to generate a "club" type thing, but rather something for younger Class A owners whether they have kids or not to converse, etc. Possibly even start some type of forum or FB page for younger, working people. Once a group of people are involved you just kind of set something up for a weekend with no real plans. Just show up, if you feel like chatting great, if not well all you lost was a weekend and you still got to use your RV. :-)

Also - open to suggestions...

We have been in the Class A segment for about 10 years and are starting to see more and more families in Class A when we visit motorcoach resorts.

As for FMCA, while I am a member I just glance thru the magazine. About a month ago while traveling home we stopped at a local diner with the coach and there was a gentleman with a Tiffin Class A. Turns out we are from the same town. He handed me his business card with the information for the local FMCA club they belong to and asked that I check it out. That evening I looked it up on line and the photos showed the majority of group was older than my parents...

We are 33 and 31 but we use our Class A to get AWAY from people. Last thing in the world we would want to do is hang out with others! Cheers!
