It's too small.
And it can be stolen when you're in a diner.
It can't go off road if you like going off road.
Can't stock up on food for the winter.
Can't have a family and put down roots.
Can't fit on small roads.
Have to tow extra vehicles.
Small uncomfortable bed.
Tiny bathroom with no bathtub.
No swimming pool.
Might not be able to have satellite TV or the internet, depending upon location.
Sorry, but i much prefer a home. I want a big house with several rooms in it so I can have a good library and a good computer room all to myself.
Actually, you can have some of these amenities.
We live in a 5th wheel year round due to our living, so here are a few things that I do know about....
-Since we pull a 5th wheel, we have a vehicle...4x4 dually.
-We do have shelf space for books/movies/games, however Kindle has become my best friend.
-Yes, you can go down small roads, if you're a good driver and not scared. Been traveling for 27 plus yrs. so I guess I'm experienced enough. Can't
get much worse than some of those skinny & steep roads in northern Arkansas.
-If you stay in an RV park, they usually have pools, without you having to do the up keep. [some have wifi]
-We have a 42" TV with Directv HD....complete with surround sound system.
-X-Box/PS3/computer/printer.....router to go on-line, such as now.
-Slide outs which open the rooms for more space and some have a computer desk in it. Ours has 2 slide outs, one in living room & bedroom. Makes a
world of difference!
-Queen size bed & 2 very comfy recliners in Living room.
-Full size shower....we opted out for a bath tub but they do have garden tubs w/showers available.
-Full kitchen stove/oven/frig...[.our friends put a full blown fridge in theirs.]
But... this life isn't for every one. It works fine for us tho.
You are right about food storage. We have a pantry which we keep stocked up [hurricane area] but in the case of a SHTF scenario, maybe only a months
worth, give or take. However, that being said, we do have the advantage of moving out of a danger zone if need be.
There are tons who don't understand how we can do it but I can't imagine being in one place after all these years of traveling.
Itchy feet I guess.....used to traveling, seeing new places and faces. Get to meet all kinds of people.
Our friends have kids & they travel too. Of course, they have a 52 ft. 5th wheel with about 5 slide outs where as ours is only 38 ft. with 2 slide
Life is what we make of it I guess.....
