As it draws to a natural close, I have just discovered a most interesting blog. Our Life in a Caravan has documented the life of a man who decided that he was fed up with all his hard earned wages going on rent and bills so he decided to move permanently into his caravan. Not a static caravan, a proper pull it along behind your car job. Reading the comments on the blog, it appears he is not alone! Many people find life a daily challenge financially so have chosen to ditch the expensive house for life on wheels. It is saying something when you work full time to earn your cash and still can’t afford to live.
Because the law doesn’t allow you to live permanently on one caravan site, this has involved him moving after a period elsewhere. He sounds entirely positive about this, saying it is like being on holiday all
the time! However now his life is changing and he has transferred back to life under bricks and tiles.
I can totally relate to his motivations for doing what he did. I too feel like I work very hard and can barely afford to pay my bills, let alone buy any luxuries. However, I would find moving around and living in such a small space a struggle. However if it came to it I would do it – I love the idea of having money left over to enjoy some of life’s more expensive pleasures and not to constantly have one eye on the overdraft!
