Meet Sharon, a retired pharmacist who has chosen to spend her golden years in a unique way.
She has always dreamed of traveling across the United States as a modern nomad, and now that she’s retired, she’s making that dream come true.
Sharon purchased a small T@B travel trailer to tow behind her 4-door Jeep Wrangler for her epic journey.
Sharon introduced her small yet sturdy home on wheels to the world. It was featured on Bob Wells’ YouTube channel, Cheap RV Living, where she shared details about her nomadic life.
“I bought my T@B about a year and a half ago when I retired as a pharmacist,” says Sharon in the video.
Having previously owned larger trailers, Sharon decided to downsize this time. The compact space felt unusual to her initially, but now she’s happy with her decision.
The trailer is spacious enough for her to stand and move around freely (the maximum interior height is 5’9″) without feeling claustrophobic.
Despite its small size, the trailer is a marvel of compact design, complete with all the conveniences Sharon needs for life on the road.
Inside, there’s a fully equipped kitchen with a propane stove, refrigerator, drawers, and even a small sink.
Adjacent to the kitchen, there’s a small but functional bathroom-shower.
While others might compare it to a closet, Sharon finds it more than suitable for her needs. “I bring a small wooden table for eating or working on the computer,” she said.
There’s also a cozy corner with a sofa that doubles as a bed in the trailer.
Heating and air conditioning are integrated into the walls, and it can even pick up her favorite TV programs when in an area with good coverage.
In essence, it’s a mini-apartment on wheels, with all the comforts of home in a small package. But Sharon’s favorite aspect of her little home is the lifestyle it supports.
“The best thing about a small structure like this is that it kind of forces you to spend a lot of time outdoors,” she explained.
“When you live this lifestyle, it’s about being in nature and enjoying others.”
Sharon’s portable setup allows her to choose between a desert environment and a serene lakeside view as her backdrop.
When she wants to disconnect from the grid, her solar panels provide all the energy she needs.
It’s not just about the space Sharon has; it’s about the freedom it offers her to travel the world.
