RVs help Boomers take home on road - Des Moines,IA,USA
Ron Haynes' 35-foot recreational vehicle has all the conveniences of home, including a roomy bathroom, recliners, satellite television and the same brand and style of mattress he sleeps on in his Pella home.

"So I sleep well," says Haynes, an avid camper - ummm, RVer.

Haynes, 52, and his wife, Carol, 54, take their Winnebago Chieftain on four trips a year. And most of the summer, the home on wheels is parked at Cutty's Campgrounds near Grimes, where the Hayneses spend weekends.

"We love the comfort and freedom of the RV," Haynes says.

Baby boomers such as the Hayneses make up the largest number of RV owners, according to Recreation Vehicle Industry Association. The typical RV owner is 49 years old, married, with annual household income of $68,000. On average, owners spend 26 days a year traveling in their RVs, covering about 4,500 miles.
