any other old beginners out there?  Never camped before.Well, 45 years ago, we drove to Washington state with 4 little ones. in a station wagon.  I made screens for the windows so we could sleep in it at night.  Placed plywood over wheel whells in back so kids could "bunk" The days of "make do"-and being broke!  Can't wait to get ou r-pod! Hope we are not too old for this.

Welcome..
You are never too old. Camping keeps you young. I am older than dirt and love it.

I am 74 and just bought our R-Pod last week. You should have several more years to enjoy being an R-Pod owner.  Last Tuesday we drove the last leg of our trip back home from out west.  That was the last day we towed our 18' Aerolite Zoom, covering 625 miles mostly in the rain.  Very foolish, now that I have had time to think about it.

HELLO..New member here...first post! I am 65 and retiring next year. I am in Michigan and want to go west. I can't decide between a Casita and an R Pod.  Gonna do some research here.
Thank
TOM

"Old beginners" .. As good a way to describe us as any, I guess.  I just turned 70 last March so I guess we're part of that crowd.  We last camped - with a pop-up -  2o+ years ago.  Cranking the damn roof up & down with an a/c on it got old fast, so we got out of the camping business for awhile.  Just picked up our new 171 a week ago today, though, so I reckon we're ready to take another stab at it.  Just got home late yesterday after 1300 miles dragging it throu several states.  No problems.  Just fun!  Hope you'll join in.
