Is this what retirement will look like in the US going forward?

Below is the associated video.

    Well, it appears you would have to be pretty fit.  I hike 2 or 3 miles a few times a week, and I feel like my hip joints are about ground down after that – I doubt I could actually walk 15 miles in a day now. 
    Also, at least from the video, those are pretty nice looking RVs.  It makes me wonder after the cost of gas to get there, how much these people are actually netting.
