At Lakeland RV in Milton, Wis., biker Paul Davey and his golden retriever, Dallas, aren’t ready to ride into the sunset, but they are ready to rumble — right into the back of a new toy hauler, television station WKOW reported.
The 45-year-old Lodi resident and his seat-belted, side-car panting companion are a sight to see as they attempt multiple climbs into a unit decked to the nines with everything.
“You know, it’s either a hotel or a friends house and now, at the end of the day, we’re gonna have our own place we can go to,” Davey said.
Davey’s purchase is part of a new trend of adults in their 30s to 40s giving RV living a chance.
“It’s really an exciting time for us,” Lakeland RV owner Erik Samuelsen said.
It’s been a banner year for the 30-year-old company and the last two months they’ve reported record business.
“Lower interest rates, better quality, low gas prices, it’s making camping an exciting activity again,” Samuelsen added.
What’s more is that he’s seeing younger and younger buyers, not just those coasting into their retirement years.
“We have lots of buyers in their 20s,” Samuelson said. He said when they walk in they’re often surprised by what they can actually afford.
