Younger and younger breeds the snowbird

Some snowbirds remain on the RV view overnight. Some miss the campsites weekly. Some join their friends every year at the nation's best RV resorts. We know that. They travel to Florida, Arizona, California and various destinations to Canada. They drive, come alone, or are accompanied by family and friends. What they have in common is that everyone is hot in search of a place hot enough to chase.

The interesting part about what happens during the snowbird season is not that they continue to come year after year; and where they decide to stay, but rather who they are. Several local Tucson dealers as well as camping workers have seen an increase in the number of juvenile snowbirds. Clint Ettington, manager of Pedata RV in Tucson, said "the number of younger RVs is definitely increasing." He sees it day by day and month by month. "We've always had a percentage of younger RV customers, but lately it seems to be growing," said Ettington.

The question is why are there so many younger snowbirds? William Keith, a 25-year-old father of one now snowbird in Tucson Arizona, says "the good life is not reserved for those 55 and older, but only for a discount on senior citizens." William Keith is a native Indian. When asked how he managed to get enough free time to work with snowbirds in Tucson, Keith replied, "I'm kind of the boss there." Later, his companion discovers that William Keith is a million-man-made air man, with apparent freedom to travel during the snowbird season

After talking to several families in the younger RVing group, the census was that most of them were able to snow birds as young as 25 and older because of owning their own companies. It has clearly become a trend among young business owners. Plus, a select few who just save their annual paid vacation week so they can get out of the cold and join the lucky birds, even for just a short time.
