    The public image of the motorhomer is that we are all grey haired pensioners, is this right? I would be interested in knowing the ages of the membership. Its an anonymous poll so your blushes will be spared ::bigsmile: Please do vote

    For the most part I'm afraid so, you do meet the occasional family but not often.. :RollEyes:

    The young tend to have vdubs or converted tranny vans, get married, have a family, become tuggers for 10 - 15 years then progress onto a m/h .. such is life !

    But does this give an indication of the age of motorhomers or of the age of internet / forum users? A lot of "older" people still don't use computers although that's becoming a much less true statement :Smile:

    Thought this may cheer up you old wrinklies


    The good book says we are granted 3 score years and 10-------------70 years
    divided by 10 = 7
    there are 7 days in a week therefore each 10 years is represented one day

    Looks like 80% of members here bought a motorhome before they were 60, now that has got to go against the public/Jeremy Clarkson perception, that most of us wait until we are 65 before we buy a motorhome. ::bigsmile:

    Ralph,

    I started 7 years ago when I was 67 and the only reason I got started was my grand children got fed up with me asking the to look info up for me.:roflmto:

    It has given me a new lease on life, I'm not very mobile and the computer has opened up a whole new world for me.:thumb:

    It's been a very steep learning curve . :Blush: I'm thinking of getting my 97 year old mother started so we can chat on Skype:ROFLMAO:
    It's a lot easier now we have the lap top, coping with a Turkish key board was a night mare.:Eeek:

    Don

    Old - 67 years young, that me:ROFLMAO:!

    Age is a state of mind, and motorhomers are some of the greatest young people we've ever met.

    There must be something about motorhoming that keeps us all young:thumb:!

    How very true! I am constantly amazed at the "elderly" people I meet with MHs who are anything but elderly! :Smile:
