Frankly, I don't know if you old-timers should still be driving; Us youngsters will be on the lookout for you! (I'll turn 67 in Sept).

I will turn 67 in May and that was a part of our decision to go with a Class C when we purchased our Forest River this past November. I felt that for the most part, whatever curves mother nature may send my way, I will be able to drive this size for many years to come. That and there are just the two of us plus accomplices, as well as the convenience of being able to park almost anywhere.

I will be 68 in 7 weeks and just moving up to a class A. When I get old I will think about downsizing

I'm wintering at a CoE park with 11 other maintenance volunteers. Except for two couples who are 1/2 time snowbirds we're all Fulltimers. I turn 70 in April, and I'm the youngster of the group. My next door neighbor is 79.

I sold a Goldwing a couple of years ago and I asked the guy how old he was, he replied just turned 80, then rode away. That's my goal.
