I do not find it very accurate to paint all the young campers with a 6 inch brush. I have camped with young folks with both vintage campers , trilliums, play pacs, a unik etc. I have also camped with young families with current market Scamps, Casitas and Escapes. And they are not driving leased vehicles either. Some have Volvo’s, many have Toyota’s, Nissans and. Honda’s. The ones who seek me out are hungry for information, recommendations on places to camp and intent on having fun. They may not be the majority but they are common and they’re our future. When I hunt with a 28 year old guy who’s toting a thousand dollar rifle and a four hundred dollar scope, a throwaway mentality is not what comes to mind.
Everybody is entitled to their opinion, mine is that many of today’s young people have high standards, and a grasp on the adage that “quality is economy”.

I agree with the younger generation "wanting" the best of the best, however they certainly aren't going to wait 6 months to a year for it. Even though they want "high quality" and are willing to pay for it by leasing, they aren't looking too far into the future as to long term ownership. Their efforts have more to do with enjoying the here and the now in a minimalistic sort of way. Take note, they are not starting families and having children, as the boomers did, so they have more discretionary income. While they claim to want to save the environment, they can be the least conservative with their own resources.

My son-in-law is leasing his new Lexus. He, like many other young people is working under contract ( two jobs ) and since he has his own company, there are tax advantages to leasing.

In addition, BC places a luxury tax on vehicles over a certain price. By leasing, he avoids that tax and when the lease ends, he can buy the vehicle at it's depreciated price ( no luxury tax ).
