Solo Woman Living in an RV – YouTube Video

Carolyns RV Life Debut Video

At 48 years old, after hiking the John Muir Trail alone for 26 days, I decided I needed a change. So I bought a 23 year old Class C RV and moved in.

Check out the video for the story and what the first seven months were like!

    1. Kay – You are very welcome! And welcome to the adventure! Thank YOU for joining me!
      OH my gosh, thanks for having a sense of humor about the shower video – was afraid it might offend some of my lovely older women watchers and readers.
      You’re awesome and I will continue to do my best to enjoy this life for the both of us! <3
      Thank you and Merry Christmas! - C

  2. What a inspiration you are. .I’m a 65 year old woman. .widow. I lost my husband of 31 years. 7 years ago..love of my life..after that I met a man who is abusive to me and I have to get away. .since my husband was so ill I lost everything my beloved home . .and had to file bankruptcy because of lost income and medical bills. so I can’t rent. .my dream is to buy.myself a small rv for me and my dogs to live in and travel. I’m scared. Don’t know how to do the rv stuff..set up dumping what ever. .how do you do it??

    1. I am 72, and getting closer every day to doing this. The more I find out, the closer I get. What are you scared of? What have you got to lose. My RV sales guy said, if you’re scared buy a can of mace. Made sense to me. I have a small dog, and will try with her. May add a bigger one if i feel the need, but i doubt I will.

      One thing I know for sure, You do not need a man to live your dreams-very happily.!

  3. Dear Carolyn….Could you be my “sign”????
    My name is Jennifer.
    This morning …I woke up ..looked around my small 2 bedroom flat ..Saw the snow outside ..Looked at my mountain bike …And I begun to cry because I feel the same way you had felt. This is not the way I want to live.
    Sadly, Suicide has entered my mind many times.
    I feel like I am living a lie !
    I want to enjoy the type of life you are living.No more 8-5 job with weekends and holidays off. I’m 46 ..my girls are in college . It’s my time! My lease is up in August! I’d love to meet you and learn from you.
    I’m watching every video today!!
    Thank you for your courage!!

  4. I’m flying now to Atlanta to pick up my little RV, which will now be my home. I’m a single woman, 46 years old, with two grown children. I’m terrified and even cried a bit, ok a lot, last night. Leaving the creature comforts and life as I know it is scary. I am doing this because I dont want to be at the mercy of rising rents, landlords, leases.. and I want to be free. I want to see this country and others.

    I work full-time and will be parking at night where I can. I’m a petite woman and am scared for my safety, plus I know nothing about RVs and this lifestyle. I have been watching videos and reading voraciously.

    To Jennifer, I have suffered from depression and completely understand where you are coming from.

    To all of you, blessings!!

    Shannon
