This family of five (soon to be six!) has been living in their renovated toy hauler now for about two years. They got started on the tiny living journey when husband Troy became a travel nurse — an RV allowed his wife Elizabeth and their three girls to take home wherever he went for work!

They purchased the RV for about $45K and put $3K into the renovation. Using mostly paint, they were able to take the dark “stock RV” and make it into a lovely boho home that’s lovely and inviting. Enjoy the photo tour and their interview below!

Kelly and Tamarr served in the Air Force and Marine Corps, but when it was time to retire, they decided to do something different and live in an RV while homeschooling their son. It gives them the freedom to travel the continent (they were in Baja during this video tour) and grow closer as a family.

This military family chose a 2021 Winnebago Navion for their home on wheels. It has off-grid capabilities making it great for boondocking, and they got it brand new and under warranty (which proved to be a good move — watch the video!).

The Dekker family (@thedekkertrekkers) loved spending months at a time traveling in their pop-up camper, so they decided to bite the bullet and get a larger RV to travel in full-time. After six months on the road, they ended up finding an adorable tiny cabin in Colorado to fix up and act as their home base.

Right now they’re renovating the cabin so they can winter there and then head out in their RV during the warmer months. Honestly, it’s the best of both worlds! They can rent it as an Airbnb to help offset the costs of full-time travel. I can’t wait to see what the cabin looks like when it’s done, but for now enjoy pictures of their RV renovation.

Also, there’s a Q&A with them at the end of the post you won’t want to miss.

Sometimes living tiny is a lifestyle choice, and other times it’s a stepping stone on a journey. For this awesome family of five, downsizing into a camper is allowing them to save a whopping $1,500/month so they can save up to buy land and build their dream home. The Price family is a great lesson in delayed gratification.

That said, their home (while tiny) is gorgeous! It’s light and airy with fun pops of color, and a far cry from the drab and dark canvas they started with. Despite being cooped up in an itty-bitty space with three kids under three, mom Angelina said her love life with husband Cliff has been better than ever before because the only place they can really hang out once the kids are asleep is in their bed 😂 Amazing!

We got to interview Angelina about living tiny with littles, so be sure to read that Q&A after the photo tour! And go ahead and follow the family on Instagram here.

Like so many American families, the Bacons were running the rat race, constantly going and hardly spending time together as a family. That’s when they decided to sell most of their belongings, buy a fifth-wheel, renovate it, and travel the country!

To date, they’ve been to 35 different states over the past two years (see more @baconsontheroad). Despite being a family with three young sons, the interior of the home is mostly white and “farmhouse-inspired” (but, of course, everything is washable!). The boys share a “bunkhouse” and it’s pretty awesome.

We got to interview mom, Mallory, and you can read the Q&A below! She even talks about how they tried out living in a house for a month not too long ago, and discovered they missed living tiny… How cool!

For many people, RV living is a temporary solution that allows a couple to save up for a “sticks and bricks” home later down the road, but for the Behrens, life in their camper has lasted for an entire decade!

The couple went from trade school right into RV life, and for 10 years they’ve followed husband Spenser’s line work across the country, often moving with little to no notice.  As their family grew they did upgrade to a larger new fifth wheel, but they’ve renovated the interior to make it look like home!

We got to interview Libby about their decade on the road, and she shared some gorgeous before and afters of her home that are sure to inspire you. Follow the family on Instagram here for updates.

Leila got a wake-up call when she was diagnosed with cancer a year and a half ago. It was then that she and her husband Trevor decided they needed to get out there and travel instead of running the rat race in Southern California.

Both of them work remotely as real estate agents, and Trevor runs a YouTube channel helping agents create great videos of the homes they want to sell. They purchased a vandalized toy hauler and transformed it into an amazing home on wheels, complete with a huge home office!

They travel with their 21-year-old daughter with special needs, and the three of them are loving their home on wheels. Leila worked hard to make sure nothing in the RV felt like an RV, and you’ll see from the tour with Tiny Home Tours below!

I absolutely love seeing families downsize from “regular” American homes to itty bitty spaces and seeing them truly enjoy and thrive in that lifestyle. That’s the case for the Aviles family, who went from a 2,700 square foot sticks and bricks home to a 314 square foot RV so they could travel.

In 2019, they travelled over 6,000 miles, and put in another 8k in 2020! While they do plan to eventually build another home, it’s clear this minimalist experiment has forever changed them for the better. Plus their two kids have seen so much of the country they might have never seen if they stayed at home.

They did a ton of work on their 1996 Winnebago to make it a boho-chic home that reflects their personalities and works with their lifestyle. Enjoy the photos below and be sure to read our Q&A with mom, Aubrey, below!

What would it take for you to be debt-free? What could you do without monthly payments? The Ries family decided to move into an RV so they could pay cash to slowly build a small home!

While they could have been moved in by now had they financed their home, living tiny with their two little kids means that once they move in, they won’t be carrying debt! They’ve done 95% of the house building by themselves. Amazing.

We got to interview Karissa and hear about what it’s like living in their RV renovation. Check it out below, and follow the family on Instagram.
