For the last 6 months Cindy and I have been living in a 300 sq. ft. travel trailer with 2 pull outs. Learning to live small has it’s challenges but it is also lots of fun. Part of the challenge is finding places to put all your stuff and anytime you go out and think of buying something you also need to know where you can put it.
Right now we are camp hosts at Anastasia State Park until the end of July and then we move about a hundred miles south to Koreshan State Historic Site by Bonita Springs and then we go to John Pennenkamp Coral Reef State Park in Key Largo for November and December.
We work for 20 hours a week usually 3 days on and 3 days off working 4 to 5 hours each day we are on. In return we get a free camping site with free water, electric and sewer. Now tell me where else you can go and live free while having a beautiful beach just down the street in walking distance. I cannot wait to get to Key Largo for Nov. and Dec. We are planning to go down to Key West for Christmas. There are many opportunities in both State and Federal parks to volunteer and stay and play!
The one thing you need to be able to do is learn how to fix things on your RV and if you do not know how you can usually look at YouTube and find what you are looking for. Also read your owners manual so you learn about your RV and its maintenance. Also some of the older campers will usually give you good advice. We have learned a lot in our first 6 months of learning to live small in a trailer.
