Single FEMALE RV'ers

Noticed there was no female rv'ers poll to match the male one, so decided to start it.

So what age group do all the solo female rv'ers fall into?

Please take time to vote!!

I'm not single and so far have never met a single woman camping alone. I'm sure they're out there but I haven't met one yet. I did meet a single woman in her 40s living in an old 13' RV on someone's property, she had no choice but to full-time it.

I'm curious how you manage with 16 cats in such a small space. Are you keeping them in cages or carriers?

I'm 44. Just me and my little bichon. We're very happy together. :-)

In my life I've camped solo too many times to count. When I was younger -- and before the RV -- I'd always camp in a tent by myself out in the desert southwest. No campgrounds either. My 4x4 truck (which i built-up & modified for this very purpose) took me to lots of remote and desolate areas .... very peaceful and beautiful.

I'm 46. I have been camping solo since 1994, when I bought my pop up. Back then it was just me ...now it's me and my two fur babies in a nice 28 ft TT.

Didn't know if it meant not married... or camps solo, usually... I haven't been out yet, but when I tent camped... I usually was solo as DH isn't real wild about camping. I plan on plenty of solo RV adventures if all works out as planned! Yeah, I'll let him come with me if he wants too... I think he wants to fly his powerchute in new and exciting places in a more economical fashion...at least that is how I talked him into buying my toy!

I'm married, 44 years actually. But my husband is always gone. For the last 11 years he has worked overseas, only a couple where I could have gone. 1 being Qatar, but I doubt I would survive long as an outspoken woman in an Arab world. Currently he is in the jungles of Borneo, on the equator, in Indonesia.

We also have a mildly mentally challenged daughter 42. While I say I go alone technically not true. But she is unable to help with things so I do it all.

The last year and a half we did almost 20k miles, but last year she got sick for several months so we didn't get to do much.

We had a nice little; 29 ft 2005 Winnie and hubby and I got the bug to get a diesel pusher. We weren't sure if I could handle a big one and didn't want to spend a bunch in case so we got a 38footer. We saw this old 1992 American Eagle, she looks really good. We knew it needed a lot but it needed more then we thought. I ended up having to hire some of it done, he said it would have taken him months to do all the stuff but he is capable of fixing about anything on it. He has been home the last 2 weeks fixing stuff so DD and I can go. He is an old sweetie. He knows I love to travel and have been out of the states on cruises and such, but DD loves to go in a motorhome. It works very well for us. He doesn't mind.

We talked about waiting till he retired, he says now 68, but I'm 66 and figure when that comes up he will say 70. I want to go before I'm to old to enjoy myself so we sort of comprised. When he is home he doesn't really want to go anywhere, wonder why. Whether he wants to travel after retirement or not is to be seen so this works for us.

So I'm saying I'm traveling alone, sort of.

49 almost 50 solo woman here. Just bought bought my full timing rig in June, a nice, low miles, one owner 1985 pace arrow 27 ft model. Currently parked by the Sacramento river in northern California. I've spent the last few months fine tuning my little beast, last big project will be sealing the roof. Then I am building a 400 watt solar system. Hope to be done by end of October and ready to hit the road in January. I welcome any and all tips!

My first mh was a 1966 Clarke cortez purchased in 1994 for $1800 my kids were 3 and 5. Traveled with husband and the boys all over the west in that thing, I really loved the cortez.

Now that my kids are grown and I am relatively unencumbered I look forward to hitting the road!

I'm solo - unless you count the dog!

I'm 51 and bought my rig about 18 months ago. Just got back from a week out and about.

I haven't yet met any single RVr's male or female --but I'm not a full-timer and in 18 months haven't been out a lot yet either!

I noticed this past week I got a lot of "spectator" interest from 4 guys tent camping across from me, when I was backing my 5er into a tight space. Wondered if they were going to applaud when I did it on the first attempt!

It's all good!
