Our Scamp was about 1979 and the Casita about 2001 with a few other RV's before, between and after. The 21 Escape will be our last although we also said that about our 19 Escape.

Hi: All... Half as old as I feel and twice as old as i want to be!!!
We fell into our first Escape at 60. It wasn't supposed to happen till I turned 65 and retired... but when "Opportunity knocks" the rest is history. We have enjoyed escaping ever since!!! Alf

I wonder if there is an even larger contingent of those in the sixties than seen in the poll since the Internet has a larger percentage of younger people using it. There may be more younger owners on this forum than would be representative of owners.

Good point. Also, the on-line habits of us older folks are such that we spend less time on-line. And then there is resistance to change: E.G. I still use a flip-phone, so on-line for me means sitting at a table or desk with a computer. I'm on-line at work, for a short time at home, but on weekends, sometimes the computer never sees the passage of an electron.

58 when we paid for it, 57 when I ordered. We always used to say "when we go cross country." Now we say "next time we go cross country."

If Scamp counts, then 69, now 70, so a new Escape ain`t in the cards. Carl

60's folks win. That's OK, just means we got a little head start.
