The Advantages of Living in Travel Trailers

Travel trailers have been around for a very long time, providing families and independent travelers the temporary home they need along their adventure but somehow, some people have turned these temporary homes into permanent homes, further ditching their houses and opting to live life the Gypsy way. The travel trailer culture has been modelled from Romani people of the 19th century who went around touring different parts of Europe while sleeping in their caravans as they live a carefree life full of dancing and music.

However, there has been a stigma tailing behind those people who prefer to live in mobile homes or travel trailers: that those people are almost as equivalent to homeless people, they’re probably unemployed, and worse, the trailer trashbut that’s not always the case. According to an article by Tom Geoghegan he wrote for BBC in 2013, he said, “Mobile homes make up 6.4% of the US housing sector and there are 8.5m of them, down slightly on 2011, according to the US Census. The number of occupants is not recorded but it’s estimated to total about 20 million. According to the Manufactured Housing Institute, about 57% of the heads of mobile home households are in full employment and another 23% are retired.”

Here, we will be giving you 4 reasons why people prefer living in mobile homes or travel trailers and how these factors outweigh the stigma of the society:



  • No more expensive monthly rent pay


According to an article written in Wandrly Magazine, by living in an apartment, you would spend an average of $825 per month, meanwhile by living in your own travel trailer in a trailer park, you would only spend an average of $595 per month. That’s a difference of $230 per month and with that amount, you could use that for your monthly groceries or savings instead.



  • You’ll meet new people along the road


This is why living in mobile homes is perfect for the extroverts who delight in meeting new people every time. When your trailer breaks down in the middle of the round, you are bound to befriend the person who lends you a helping hand or you might find a new buddy from your new neighbour in the trailer park. The chances of you meeting new people are just endless!



  • Adventure anytime, anywhere


This is probably the number one reason why people prefer living in travel trailers, all you just need is gas and it doesn’t even matter if you have a destination in mind as you are destined to find a hole in the wall or a magnificent lake along the way. You can fall asleep under the clear night sky and wake up with the soft ocean breeze by the morning.



  • You can save money


No need for room service because you can cook inside your own travel trailer, if you’re lucky, you might have bought one with an outdoor stove.
