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,

I saw the picture of you at the York Show and I don't believe you. You don't look a day over 60 :winky::winky::winky:
Well, he was stood still then, he wasn't doing over 60 ::bigsmile:

I was still 55 when we bought ours in June last year. As for grey, I ain't got none - just the odd refined touch of silver ::bigsmile:

re Old, see the sig below ::bigsmile:

I am in the 22% of 40's people.

I am however, extremely grey-haired. Both hair and beard.

I am now confused! Does this make me an honourary over 65er?

Should I be worried?

Oh bums! (will I get banned?). Just saw the date of the original post, which was 6 years ago. I wasn't in this age group then and I wasn't grey because I dyed my hair. TBH, we only got a MH once I stopped work since we never had time to go away in one before then. ::bigsmile:

I wonder if the percentage has changed any since the survey in 2007, I think there would me more younger motorhome owners.

Likewise, until your post I hadn't noticed the date. So, I was 51 when we got our first m/home and I am 65 now. So, all you statisticians, make of that what you want.:Smile:
