(NBC) -

Recreational vehicles are no longer for Grandma and Grandpa -- the RV industry is thriving, and it's actually getting younger.

According to the Recreational Vehicle Industry Association's most recent ownership report, the fastest-growing group of RV owners in 2013 was between the age of 35 and 44. 

That's just slightly less than the industry's largest group of owners, which are between the age of 45 and 54. 

Back in the 1980's, the age of the average American RV owner was 50. 

It's now 48 and falling.
