We purchased our new to us 2011 FC28 from CanAm one year ago yesterday. Both my wife and I were 52. We are not using it enough yet but looking forward to many future adventures.

First Airstream, 73 31' Excella.
I can't remember exactly when, but around 1995.
I was in my early 40's.

I was 35 when I bought my first Airstream, but I was only 6 days old when I first camped in one!

My wife and I are both 25. We just purchased a 2005 Safari LS bunkhouse model and can't wait to start traveling full-time with our two little girls. The oldest is 2 years old and the youngest is 2 weeks old!

Happy travels everyone

60 - After 35 years camping mostly in pop-ups. Time for more creature comforts. Retirement's on the horizon. A few years to practice. Current work schedule gives 1 week a month for traveling.

Two years ago bought our 1st and present 2005 25 Intl CCD RB when wife at 50 (though still gets carded....seriously) and I at 58. Just turned 60 3 days ago and wondered what took us so long decades ago used to backpacking and tents with the now grown and out kids.
Relaxing is hard work.

Bought our first Airstream a 65 Overlander when I was 29 and hubby was 33 we restored it enjoyed it then sold it. Missed it like crazy so Just bought our second airstream at 34 and 38. We own our own business and have been pretty fortunate to be able to travel as much as we have.

Nice! Amazing the vast ages and reasons. What is an SOB people mention?
