I like living in a 5th wheel. Cheaper rent most of the time ( mine right now is 250 a month plus electric that runs about 50-60 a month) Don't like your neighbors? You can move very easy. 😂 Lose power, we have a battery back up that last for 4 to 5 days if its longer than that we have the 2000 watt inverter that we use to charge the battery's in about 30 min to 1 hour off of the old diesel battery's . We have 40 to 50 gallon water tank with water pump if power or water goes out. I have had to use that before on my old camper at a park and making a 2700 mile trip I was able to shower.  Winter months are not that bad as long as the Mr. Buddy heater is hooked up. Moving from job to job is nice because your home is always with you. You only have to stop at truck stops to get diesel. You have a stocked fridge behind you. If you get tired just pull over and you have your bed right there. I wouldn't change living in one. I feel mobile and don't feel tied down anywhere.

Now the bug out part.

I have thought about this over and over. I said on one post that every time I get to a job I drive around and look for places to hide. For example, right now I am 2.7 miles away from a hiding spot that is 200 feet away from the river, covered with trees and the little road/goat path to get there is very easy to hide from other people. I really don't see why a camper or 5th wheel couldn't be a perfect part of a bug out vehicle. I know they slow you down but like I said I'm 2.7 miles away from heavy woods that will be easy to hide in and the closest town has maybe 300 people. Now once I can find good solar for The 5th wheel  I will be better off I think.

If you have any questions about living or traveling with a camper just ask. I'm here to find answers and give what ever answers I have.

Good topic. Why? It's prepping.

I too have a camper. Its a small pop-up camper that me and the DW enjoy through the camping season. But its also a portable bug-out shelter.

If I had to bug out, I've got a place to sleep, eat, plan, bathe, and covered storage. Is it ideal for extreme cold/hot weather? Not exactly, but its still a critter/bug free, dry shelter. It won't be easy to defend as its just a tent on wheels, but hopefully, if we need to deploy our popup as a means of survival, we won't be anywhere near population to worry about that.

It also gives us a small margin of extra storage to haul our preps in. If given enough time to bug out, that extra few feet of space can make all the difference in what goes and what has to be left behind. The tow vehicle can only hold so much.

If we had to live in it for weeks, we would. And we would be thankful we weren't on the ground in a tent or under a tarp. After years spent in tents and waking up soaked to the bone during torrential rains, the popup is a pleasant, inexpensive upgrade.
