The video below brings joy to an experience that too much of the mainstream media paints negatively: Living as a solo female nomad.
If you are a single woman (or man, for that matter) who thinks they might enjoy RVing but are intimidated to go it alone, this video will have you rethinking those notions.
Beyond the sheer exuberance about RV life that Charlotte, a 38-year veteran of nomading, brings to the topic, she also shows just how little space and how few things one actually needs to live a happy and fulfilling RV lifestyle.
If you sometimes feel like your things are owning you instead of the other way around, the video below just might inspire you to get off your butt and get your clutter under control. Even if you don’t plan to live full time in a 4X4 pop-up truck camper.
Over the years, Charlotte has accumulated a lot of hands-on experience with many different RVs.
The camper in the video below is Charlotte’s 3rd pop-up truck camper. She’s also owned three different hard-sided truck campers. Not to mention three different fifth wheels and a Class C motorhome.
Charlotte and her late husband were set up for off-grid RVing before off-grid was even a thing. Now that he has passed, she still loves and continues the RV lifestyle they started together.
I have often thought of putting a similar pop-up camper on my truck for times when I don’t want to take my full rig. Or for going places my full rig won’t. Or for when traveling with friends and family and needing an extra bedroom.
Everything Charlotte needs as a solo female nomad
Watching the video gave me a terrific tour of the features, the pros and cons, and ideas of how to outfit a camper for maximum storage and practicality.
Charlotte has everything that is important to her. She even carries along her electric bicycle on an innovative swinging carrier.
She also has found ways to deal with the small truck camper’s limitations such as the small 7-gallon black water tank and 15-gallon fresh water tank.
Charlotte finishes this interview with a short discussion about security concerns for single female nomads especially, although the tips certainly apply to all. So tune in and be prepared to be inspired.
