Began reading thread (did not make it through all 6 pages) and must represent the, I suppose, youngins. We will both be turning 30 this year. As die-hard tent campers for the beginning of our lives, this if the next best thing. My fiance and his family are all well about the biker background ("its in the blood"). He sold his bike so that we, as a family, could have something to experience together. (We now have a 5 year old son and a dog). Someday he plans to get another bike, but thats a story for another day. (Let me add that HE chose to sell his bike, I had no part in that, I made sure of it. I understand the love). With ALL of that said, I don't think there will be a very long span of time that we aren't fiberglass rv (travel trailer) owners now. This forum proves that in itself. I am glad that there are so many people here to draw wisdom from. They have clearly found something that most others don't and I feel lucky to have found it this early in life.

"Then peace will guide the planets and love will steer the stars"... Nice analogy. Hard to believe many of us were once long-haired hippies (or wanna-be's).

Regarding the ages of fiberglass trailer owners, I am in my 60s and my husband in his early 70s. He says age is just a calendar number. We plan to use ours--with the addition of a chemical toilet to avoid creeping about in the wee hours--until we can no longer hitch it up.

Glad to see there are folks my age and younger, but a little disappointed they are mostly couples or other single men. Where are the 30 something to 40 something single ladies?

On average, mature single women are not seemingly turned on by a guy my age living in a little camper. Thankfully some eccentric ones find it interesting. And I prefer eccentric women.

70% owners are aged greater than 50- implies ability to accumulate wealth in order to have an egg- in other words you need a nest egg to have an egg!!!

Ah man.....you say this just after I sold my boat, my F-350 dually, both Harleys and the bike trailer.....downsizing to get that Escape 5.0 and gettin ready to full time after retirement......and now you tell me I'm goin in the wrong direction Alf? And all this time I thought the fiberglass trailer mantra was "less is more".

I would posit that he who wears out the most toys by the finish line wins. And from the look of my garage I'm certainly a contender.

Lord have mercy there really is a http://trailerchix.com/ and for a wonder it looks like a reputable site.

Being the newbie to this fiberglass trailer thing, I just kind of assumed everybody else already knew about trailerchix.com They have some interesting articles on that web site, also. No pictures, so I really did read the articles.

My wife tells everybody that when she met me I was still in to 8 tracks. I thought it was probably a good idea that I not mention the 4 tracks before the 8 tracks.
