I've been hanging around with a group of "younger" RVers. This site seems to be a pretty active place where they gather.

https://www.facebook.com/groups/NuRVers/

(Yes, Facebook, you go to where your people hang out!)

I have at several times posted about Wanderlodges there, and Cheddar Yetti is a regular who is a Wanderlodge owner.

These younger people are working full time from the road. Keeping connected to the Internet is one of their biggest concerns as that is what allows them to live on the road pre-retirement.

I bet the good folks at WOG would be a great addition. The "Get er Done" attitude is welcome everywhere.

Craig and Lucie - 2 more weeks till we can hit the road - keeping warm in Vermont and wishing we were at the WOG rally!

I understand the financial realities but surely there are some younger people who would be ideal owners if we could get the word out. It's not like they are out of the boating and aviation hobbies.

Seems like we're missing something.
I hear you John and agree. Don't know what it takes but I seem to remember Randy telling us a couple of times that he first fell in love with a BB when he was just 15 years old. So if he can get the bug at that age then so can others. Just have to get the word out I guess.

Default Sterling Concessions

WOGers,

You may have noticed that Sterling Concessions has their trailer set up now. I would like to encourage folks to give them a try. This young man is a veteran and he and his wife are working hard to make their business a success. Besides, the food is really good! He serves breakfast, lunch and supper.

John, I bought my coach at 38, the "new coach" crowd from that time seems to be mostly gone now....
