I think 70 is just to old to travel out of state with a RV,


So big a world, so little time to see.

I'm old as dirt, Genie sweeps me up as we travel. We're planning a trip from Florida to West Coast in Spring ... Oregon, Sierras, Dakotas, Wyoming, Colorado, Utah, Az, N Mex, Texas, and the southern states. Several months, and the only time we missed a trip like this - yup, you guessed it 2020.

It all depends on you physical and mental condition.

No laws that I am aware of to prevent you from traveling or driving a RV..

My Dad towed his 5th wheel up into his Eighties out of state, but personally his driving was not good, eyesight was bad and mentally was not as sharp as when he was in his 60's.. Got bad enough that my Mom refused to travel with him anymore and he finally gave it up and the trailer sat in the backyard for the next 8 yrs until he gave it to my Brother..

Have to be aware of your own health, physically and mentally and be prepared to say that it is time to hang it up before hurting someone..

Good Lord, based on the OP statement, I should have given up 5 years ago. I'm not home now, so should I sell now and return by Uber just to be on the safe side?
