As a typical backpacker in my 20s who aged into family tent camping in my 30s, I used to look down my nose at those spoiled elite RVers ;-)

Then while staying at a B&B where an elder hostel group was also staying, I befriended a couple over breakfast who had come in their RV. They gave me a tour and described the highlights & lowlights. I was pretty smitten. I started reading RVer blogs and got hooked. I thought it would be a great retirement hobby--I'd get to both travel and yet sleep in my own bed, do my own cooking (and the hubster grilling), no need to dress for breakfast (I never do if I can help it), and have a bathroom always at the ready(!). And the hubster would get to tinker & maintain equipment. We were happy campers. We mixed in a variety of activities on the road, not just hikes.
