DeletedSo it seems there are or were different kinds of full timers. I suppose we start with the Gypsies, now Travellers, and move on to rich folk using horse drawn caravans in a back to nature life. Then the old hippies in their converted trucks, busses and VW vans. These became the protest community with the dog on a string. Now we have people who are forced to travel to find work and do not like living in digs. Not sure where the richer crowd with £50,000 vans fit in, trying to recreate an earlier life with their young partner following the sun and surf? Sadly modern life seems to have made a situation where van living becomes the only economical solution to high housing costs. There is the artist community following their dream, in a flat in St Ives, on a canal barge or a motorhome.
I find this whole full time thing interesting, I know it would not suit me as I have wider interests than the van life and like to see my family and friends but it truly does suit some, and good luck to them.
