MyHouseHasWheels.com is devoted to an understanding of full-time RV living and the lifestyle of living full-time in campgrounds and RV parks. While humans have been traveling and sleeping in covered wagons since the beginning of recorded history, it’s only relatively recently that RVs and campers have gotten big enough and well enough constructed that living in them full-time has become a reality for many people.
Statistics on the number of people living full-time in their camper or RV are sparse because there’s no convenient way to locate or track full-timers and very few full-time RVers have a permanent address. Yet still today, society and the machinery of government do not deal well with that type of spacial fluidity. Governments at all levels want to fix you in a point of time and space and, by its very existence, full-time RV living defies that desire.
Even if they claim a domicile in one state, RVers may travel for months at a time, returning only long enough to touch base with family and renew their auto tags. Even that can be done by mail and some RVers may be out traveling for years at a time.Within that subset of full-time RVers are a breed called “boondockers” who take the RV lifestyle a step further and camp on unmanaged government land for months at a time. That lifestyle is farther than my wife and want to go, but for some people it fits both their personality and temperament.
The mobility lifestyle also encompasses more than those living in RVs and campers, but also includes people living on their boats, so called “live aboards”. While we may differ in the type of vehicle we live in, we struggle with many of the same issues of residency and domicile.
While we have met people who adopted the RV lifestyle for financial and health reasons, by far the most common are people who adopted the RV lifestyle by choice. They are people, like us, who went camping one day and never came back, except to sell their home and auction off most of their possessions.
If you’re thinking about RV living, we have put together a guide called My House Has Wheels, available at the Kindle Store. As a supplement to that ebook, I’ll also post articles and topic expansions in the Articles section.
