Years ago, when RV enthusiasts told friends that they are selling everything and going to live in their RV’s – they were labeled “crazy.”
Today, that reaction is changing.
The idea of the benefits of the “tiny house” movement has begun to take hold, and the events surrounding the pandemic have furthered nomadic notions.
It’s not just a mid-life crisis thing any more…
No longer is it impossible to live in your RV when you have school-aged children. Online, remote learning is the safer option and a norm for many now.
Job cuts and cutbacks have made budget cuts necessary for many.
Remote work mandates have made it easier than ever for mobile RV offices to be acceptable. “Gig” jobs are also on the rise. There is even a website that helps full-time campers find these jobs: Workamper.com. The website further explains the concept, “From coast to coast, there are many positions available for Workampers—or those still dreaming of an RV lifestyle—to work and play on the road. Let us put you in touch with the perfect opportunity to meet your Workamping needs.”
And know this, we’re not talking about little jobs here and there, big companies like Amazon even have recruiting programs for RV workers.
It is estimated that well over a million American’s live full time from their RVs. Some by choice – others by necessity. 10.5 million household own at least one RV… that many people must know something, right? Also know that sales to young couples are quickly rising.
To meet some of these people and hear their stories, check out this Washington Post article at https://www.washingtonpost.com/business/2018/11/12/million-americans-live-rvs-meet-modern-nomads/
There are also Facebook groups that you can join to find out more about the modern-day nomad movement.
So, if you’ve ever wondered about living in your RV, or aren’t finding that your “American Dream” is a 2,500 square foot home with all the trimmings (too much stuff, too much work and too much stress), now might be the time to explore the full- time RV option!
