Karen Living in a Casita Travel Trailer


Today we meet Karen who is living very happily in a very nice Casita fiberglass egg Travel Trailer. She loves her life and wants to share it with you so you can love your life as well!!

No matter how cheap your budget, you can learn something from this video about vandwelling and how to turn your car, van, caravan or RV into a surprisingly cheap and mobile, tiny house on wheels! Then you can live the life of your dreams by adopting a minimalist, simple and frugal life of travel and adventure as a gypsy, nomad, traveler or even a prepper by dropping out of the Rat Race and becoming a full-time Vandweller or RVer!

  1. You are inspirational. I I feel bad that I have not followed the adventurous dream that I would love to have but I hope in the next couple years to cut this lifestyle loose get in my Casita in truck and begin the adventure in life.

  2. What a delightful woman she is… definitely a free spirit. And once again we see how fine the Casita trailer is as a wanderer's home. Thank you Karen and all the best in your travels. And, of course, another thank you to Bob for sharing this video with all of us. You are an inspiration for a great many people. I love seeing your subscriber list growing and growing. Enjoy Colorado and keep the videos coming…

  3. Living your dream takes COURAGE. Never be Discouraged. God Bless You . As  my Grandfather said Forever and a day will get you there. Please write your thoughts for the future seekers. Pony Express Salutes You.

  4. why isn't this considered homeless? because she has a nice trailer…? and can use the phrase 'off the grid'. don't get me wrong . I too prefer this type of living as I work on a masters, but those who are homeless don't seem to be allowed to use the term living off grid. I her say, as well as others in videos , that they often stay in Walmart parking lots. So I ask again, why is this not called homeless because that label stigmatized.

  5. I was wondering where you were Bob….thought you were on Enigmatic Nomadics….missed seeing your videos….i like how you show how everyone else lives this lifestyle. I almost considered a Casita that was for sale here in VT….but am just not ready…having a dog that sheds like crazy and two cats that use litter boxes. (never mind that i have four chickens too and love gardening) How do people garden when they are always on the move? I would miss that too much.

  6. Casita's are wonderful little units. I started RVing in a new, 2010 17' Casita Spirit Deluxe. I bought it to facilitate my first trip to the Burning Man Festival in NV. I had a GREAT time! I bought the Casita because I could pull it with the Toyota minivan I then had. I drove 50,000+ miles over four years, just doing extended-time RVing in my Casita. I've since "graduated" to a 2015 Dynamax DX3-37RB Super-C Class diesel puller but, I've recommended Casitas to many people looking to get started RVing. The Casitas (and Scamps) are a great way to "test the waters" before spending a lot of money buying a more traditional trailer or motorhome or, as Karen has shown, even living full-time in one. I hope Karen has a quick and complete recovery from her fall.
