Anyone younger than me own a moho?? or airstream for that matter??

I am 22 and bought a 1989 345LE about 2 months ago, seller was so shocked, and all my friends joke about me being an old man now... no offense . But, anyone out there close to my age???

You're not an old man now - you're a kewl dude now that you're an Airstream owner...

I'm not in my 20s, but in my 30s, which isn't that far off (relatively speaking I guess).

Have fun.

Embrace your "oldman-ness" ...better to be an old man in a young man's body than what many of us here are... a young man (at heart) in an old man's body.

The free spirit of Wally will always keep you young... so as I said, embrace it.

I'm 30, and my wife is in her 20's for a couple more weeks. Retro is the new thing, so if anything you've got better taste than your friends.

Does being in your 20's on some days and in your 50's on other days count?

Now Janet... you used to be 82, but I just checked and you've had a birthday - now 83. They say memory is the first to go....

When I was 22 I believe I was still driving an ancient beater mustang and hoping it wouldn't breakdown because I couldn't afford to see it on the back of a tow truck again! I didn't get my AS until I was 34! Congrats on being able to buy a 'toy' so early!

So... to more completely answer your question - based on the last bunch of posts, I'd say that some members may be near your age, but several (at least those posting to this thread) are appearently still in junior high
