My wife and I are considered to be ”full-timers” since we now live totally in our 2002 Newmar Dutch Star motorhome. The motorcoach is built on a Freightliner XC chassis and powered by the 3126e engine by Caterpillar. Wherever we park it, we are at home. By the way, this lifestyle became effective for us on July 1, 2014 after completing the sale of our “sticks and brick” in Louisville, Kentucky.
Photo (above) was taken on December 23, 2020 when we got our motorhome
from Mike’s Custom Painting in Bremen, Indiana. We had been our of
our home for five weeks to have it repainted using my design.
The summer of 2021 saw my wife and I entering our seventh year of living full-time in our tiny house on wheels. The difference between a diesel-driven motorhome and a ”tiny house” is basically the chassis and drivetrain in addition to the generator for developing electricity (known as a “genset”). Oh, and we have underbody storage we call a basement. Otherwise, the square footage above the chassis is about the same (ours is about 440) with living space, kitchen, shower, and bedroom.
