Sharon is a retired pharmacist who wanted to live out her “golden years” in style. — for her, that meant trying out something completely different. Her whole life, she had always wanted to travel around the US as a nomad, and now with her newfound freedom, she finally could.
Back in 2016, Sharon gave a tour of her awesome little rig on Bob Wells’ Cheap RV Living YouTube channel and explained a little bit about what the lifestyle had been like for her so far.
Although, in the past, she had owned several RV’s that were all larger, this time she decided to downsize. Sharon said at first, it took a couple of weeks of adjustment to get used to the size. However, now she is very happy with her choice. It is big enough for her to stand up in and move around (the tallest point inside is 5’9″), but not so big that it is overwhelming.
While from the outside the travel trailer looks very tiny, it actually has everything Sharon needs.
There is a fridge, a stove that runs on propane, cabinets, and a little sink.
Also, in the next room over there is a nice bathroom and shower combination.
While some people would consider it more like a closet than a bathroom, it certainly gets the job done. Life on the road takes a little getting used to.
There is also space in between to set up a table if she wants to get some work done.
Practically all the amenities of a normal-sized apartment are all packed into the [email protected] trailer in miniature form.
Sharon also had this to say about living in a tiny space:
“The best thing about a little rig like this is it kind of forces you to spend a lot of time outside. When you are doing this lifestyle, it is about being out in nature and enjoying other people. When you are in a little rig you can’t hole up in there too long. You get a little nuts and you have to come outside.”
Sharon’s outside set up for hanging out is definitely pretty cool too. Don’t forget, as she is mobile, her back yard can literally be anywhere she wants it to be. If she wants to park the trailer in the middle of the desert, next to a beautiful lake, or anywhere else for that matter, it is totally possible. The only limitations are the laws and regulations in the area.
