Notice any changes?

The Roadtreking blog does. 

The one consistent thing we’ve noticed in our Roadtreking travels this year is how many new RVers we are encountering out there. 
 …

Those campers are younger and younger. In KOA’s 2017 North American Camping Report, the company sayid millennials and Generation Xers now make up 72 percent of the 75 million households in U.S. that are regular campers.

Most of those younger campers are in tents and towables 
 …
 across the board for the whole industry, sales of smaller Class B campervans have been seeing double digit growth
 …

Where we have most seen it is in the places we go boondocking.
 …
We used to never have a problem finding a spot, let alone have neighbors as we retreated deep into the woods or on Bureau of Land Management properties. Now, we usually always have neighbors and sometimes actually find all the good spots taken.

There’s growth. Growth in population. Growth in wealth. And there’s reductions in costs for the conveniences in modern RV’s and camping equipment.
