We’ve given thought to the advantages of full timing. Who wants to hear whining about our problems, anyway? Wait, what problems? We don’t have problems.
There are some things we could do in a real house we cannot in our little house. With little forethought, here goes:
1. can’t keep chickens (unless we upgrade to a 34′)
2. composting is challenging (we could keep a worm bin in the truck bed)
3. can’t do rooftop gardening (we wantonly used up all the space there)
4. parties no larger than 8, unless solely out of doors
5. cannot run around inside the house, just back and forth
6. no place for big screen television
7. no dance floor indoors, or at least very very small ones (Balboa anyone?)
8.limited on collection of print books for want of wall shelf space
9.lacking in space for wood shop tools or tractors or antique cars collections
10. if a car hits, or a bad hail storm pours upon, it then it’s probably a total loss
Admittedly a little thin, this list.
Richard mentioned, tough to get a hospital bed in or out of the travel trailer. Lani, Chris, and Emerson just needed more space and are happy to land in a house in Virginia.
How about this folks, can you help us substantiate this? Are there more important issues than the ten we listed above? What disadvantages do you experience or anticipate regarding living full-time in a travel trailer?
