My husband and I are technically millennials (born in '82 and '83). Most campgrounds seem to either be filled with families with elementary aged kids (so probably not millennials) with smaller travel trailers/pop-ups, or older retirees or close to retirees. We rarely meet people our age or younger. Most of our friends are either not campers or they do tent camping.

FWIW, I grew up tent camping for family vacations and my husband's family had a travel trailer when he was a kid.

OK, been part time RVing for 19 years and now have been to 190 different RV parks in 11 western states and two western provinces. I am not a knowitall (just ask my wife) but we have been a lot of change.

Yes, more rigs for sure from baby boomers but another factor is the rentals - my God, the rental units! Mostly class C and mostly people from Europe.

Which is why we reserve spots way ahead with a lot of trip planning. Do we make changes? Not often but we do - and when we do we reserve at the place we are changing to.

We prefer to be at a place enjoying it rather than spending time looking for a place who might or might not have space.

Just our observations / comments.
