however living in a WOODEN gypsy type caravan when I was off grid was a completely different kettle of fish very enjoyable.
and I've lived in one room before-for a YEAR, its called a bed sit over here.
I have lived in my camper for a few weeks at a time but that was on the property and I was out working, building a workshop/storage unit as well as water supply, that sort of stuff. In the evening it was actually a relief to crawl inside, make a hot meal and read a book before bed. I guess if you have a purpose and something constructive to fill your day it makes a difference, but to just live in a tiny house or caravan would drive me to distraction. I need a lot of space, or am used to it. And I love a big deck to get out on and watch the sky and trees from.

as far away from "civilisation" as i can get.
yes when I was off grid I was working outside, growing my own food which took a lot of my time, I also built a wooden workshop shed from scrap timber. I'm on my own a lot now.
The recent lock downs over here have given a lot of people mental health problems, not seeing other people for maybe several months, I'm used to being on my own I'm not gregarious by nature the opposite in fact I cant stand other people so being alone has no fears for me.

I'm trying out my Jayco flight this weekend. Its a nice little trailer. Small, but has everything I need. It will be good enough to live in temporary, if we have to bug out to our other property.

When we finished our 6 month trial at the end of June, my wife insisted that since I NEVER take any vacation (she's right!) that I needed to take two weeks off.
I reluctantly left my grocery in the hands of my assistant manager (she did just fine!) and dumped all my other stewardships on the alternates (they did just fine too! No surprise...that's how it's supposed to work.)
A good friend has a 2020 Winnebago Travato that we borrowed and we traveled up the east coast and lived out of it for two weeks! It was very luxurious to have a toilet on board. I wasn't too impressed by the solar but as my wife said, "beggars can't be choosers" and "it's NOT your job to fix EVERYTHING you think isn't the way you think it should be!"
I also thought the bed should have a slide-out on the side of the RV as it was a little narrow for two...oh yeah, shut up Dave!
Still a lot of fun to get out and be self contained. Great refrigerator and AC unit!

Our 21 foot trailer has not been moved since we bugged out of Germany back in Aug of 2020. I spend a few nights in it if I am arguing with the wife and we avoid each other that way, we both have it harder here than we thought it would be. Too far from the kids and not enough friends yet makes it hard going...we need to get out and enjoy life a bit more if possible and not do so much building and work around the house and yard.

I sold my feather light toy hauler to buy something smaller, but I have yet to find what I want. It needs to be no more than 7 feet wide which they call a narrow track trailer but they don’t make them anymore.
