Tiny Homes and RVs are an increasingly popular form of vacationing. Both are affordable, as far as dwellings go (well, most of the time), and both offer up a lot of flexibility in where you can unfurl your welcome mat. While tiny homes have also become a trendy option for primary residences, the same typically can’t be said of RVs. They’re a strictly vacation-y home-on-wheels, right?
Well, apparently not. In fact, many families engage in what’s known as “full-time RVing.” It takes a certain amount of flexibility and a willingness to embrace the spontaneity and adventure (some of it good, some of it not so good) that comes along with this nomadic lifestyle. It’s especially popular among retired couples. Empty nesters with a solid retirement fund can easily head out on the open road and take everything with them, including the kitchen sink. Many RV enthusiasts tow cars or even boats behind their land yachts.
What you don’t see a lot of (you in this context referring to the average apartment or non-wheeled home dweller), is an entire family getting in on the mobile lifestyle. The Hargers don’t seem like the ideal candidates for living in a 300-square-foot RV. They’re a family of six; two adults and four young children. But, deciding they wanted to do something a little bold with their lives, the family packed up and left their suburban California life for the cramped confines of an RV in South Africa. As you’ll see in this video, they make use of every inch of space available to them, and by the time you’re done, you might be convinced that you could pull this off, too.
