|The 34 foot motorhome
Several years later, we got rid of the Motorhome and from then on, we had a variety of RV's that you towed behind or placed in the bed of a truck. Sometimes, we would buy a very small one to take a specific trip and then sell it after we were done, it all depended on where we were going, but we lived in an RV of some kind or another year round.

We spent 5 months in the little Aliner above and 4 months in the truck camper!
The last RV we owned was the biggest and we towed it behind a big pick up truck, however, it was still only about 200 square feet of living space! For most RVers in America, this would be called a weekender, just big enough for 2 or 3 days, but we lived in it for 7 years! I did 99% of the driving and could back it into the tightest spaces.
It was still very small inside, as the pictures below will show
and to give you some perspective, there is a photo of me standing by an inside door of the RV and one of me standing by an inside door of my house. See how much narrower the RV one is?

As you can see, the space is quite narrow in the bedroom and bathroom and as my Parkinson's symptoms progressed, it became increasingly difficult for me to manage without constantly bumping into things. The entry steps to get in the camper were tricky as well and I didn't feel comfortable towing the RV anymore, so we gave up that life and started a new one. Adapt, adapt, adapt.

Do I miss it? Yes, very much.
