I’ll be 80 in 3 months and just went to West Palm Beach and back last week. 1400mi towing a race car behind the DP. I also drove the race car.

I hope to RV until I feel unsafe. I'm aiming at 80 to 85.


My Dad, never felt "unsafe" up to the and including point when he passed at 93yrs..

We had to take the keys and vehicles away from him when he was around 85 and that was after he drove off the road one day and creamed the entire driverside of his car from front bumper all the way to the rear bumper.. Blamed it on someone else crossing the road.. It was still drivable so he continued to drive it. We never was able to figure out when where and how it happened as he had no idea.

He would not listen to my Mom, would not listen to any of us kids.

It was pretty darn scary to think he was on the road and most likely wouldn't notice or see someone else in time.

While it is good to re-evaluate your physical and mental health, sometimes reality is obscured by health issues like Dementia.. It happens a lot more than folks think.

I work for an RV dealer and we have around 40 part-time RV drivers for transfers between our out-of-state stores. At 66 I'm one of the youngsters. Cut-off age is 81 and majority are in their 70's. If you're healthy and in control of your faculties there's no reason to not RV into your 70s and 80s.
