I'm impressed at how evenly spread out the membership here is.

I voted 1-3 years for the time I have been RVing with my family but did not count the 15 or so years I went with my parents or the years of tent camping with the Boy Scouts or the "camping" I did in the Army.

I didn't count all the years I went with my family when I was growing up, but we had a TT that my parents brought with them when they moved to Texas from Michigan in 1980. We had that thing until about 1994 or so. Kept it parked at a CG on Lake Livingston for many years. By the time I was a teenager it was kept in storage and only brought out occasionally. I was MUCH more into back-country camping when I got into junior high, so the TT didn't get much use in favor of the Kelty, the North Face, and the Eureka.

I just bought my own TT last September and I'm already addicted to the lifestyle! Sometimes it feels like I have to drag DW kicking and screaming (she's complaining less lately as her fear subsides) but she sure kicks and screams A LOT less than when we were backpacking!

I don't think I ever want to be without some kind of RV. Right now it's a Travel Trailer, later it might be a MH or 5er. Whatever it is, you can be sure I'll be out there!

We started camping in tents not long after getting married going on 34 years ago.

As the 'kid count' increased, tent camping was proving to become more and more impractical and more work (i.e. less fun for dad). We were able try pop-up camping by borrowing a pop-up camper from some friends a few times and that's where it all began. We bought our own pop-up a few years later in 2000, upgraded to a Jay Feather LGT in 2004 and got our new Eagle 284 BHS about a year ago.

I'm curious, I would assume starting from the 15 to 20 and up option, its a lifestyle choice. I wonder what the age ranges of the members at 10 to 15 and less are. If they are just starting out in adult life, or young adults compared to us older crowd that have been camping ever since being inside the womb.

I didn't respond the same way. I didn't count my childhood, only since we purchased our own first RV.

My wife and I have been RVing 15-20 years in RV's we've purchased, that was my poll response.

However camping with the family in mom and dad's camper and I'd have to go 45+ years.
