We have camped before.....we stayed in our pop-up camper for 8 weeks at our local KOA while we looked for a house when we moved back to Colorado. The only difference is we had 2 teen-agers and a 120 pound American Bulldog at the time........if you can survive that, everything else is a cakewalk!!!!
Oh, gosh! We just stayed in our pop-up last summer/fall for 3 1/2 months, 2 adults and 2 60-lb dogs while we looked for a house, which we regret buying at this point. So, if you are organized enough to survive that, yes, you can full-time in a small trailer. My husband (6'2"), myself, a male teen and 75 lb dog full-timed in a 24' travel trailer for 2 years with relative ease. If you like the outdoors, a small trailer works fine but being in nice weather is a real plus. Full-timing is not a vacation as some people try to make it and they generally don't last beyond a year or two because they burn out. If you work and/or volunteer along the way, you can savor the experience of being in one place long enough to actually enjoy it. The feeling of the freedom that you experience, for me, I cannot adjust to this "prison" and the drudgery of keeping up a house and yard. What can you really do with a 2-week vacation or even a month. Live is too short! We are seriously considering the Eggcamper
at this point because of the extra width even though it will be a little more to haul on the road. I like that it is plain so allows for one to make it their own. It doesn't hurt that it is made 30 minutes from where I grew up either. What I did was searched most of the manufacturers in the search function on this website and read what people have been saying over the years about the Eggcamper
along with "googling" "Eggcamper" and reading other sources and, of course, you can do that with all the manufacturers. The Bigfoot
is especially nice but bigger and heavier but can be 4-season which is a plus and if a used one became available (they are expensive!), I could easily be interested in checking it out. Again, good luck.
