We are seeing large families who full-time in an RV. I am guessing some of these are foster kids. Most of these families are several nationalities.
As youths, both of our families were at times a total of 8 & 9 lived in two bedroom one bath houses. So we know it can be done with little or no major problems. It actually makes for a tight family bonding.
(A comparable unit of our neighbors, with the rear slide cut off in the photo)
Our neighbors, here are 9 kids and two young adults. They travel with a 9 passenger van and a 4 door pickup to haul the 9 bikes and the 5th wheel. The 5th wheel is a giant with five slide-outs. They have tents if the kids want to ‘camp-out’ and the bikes I mentioned. Skate boards and cell phones, tablets and phones.
The adults cook out and they all eat family style outside on double tables. The kids also do some of their studies outside. I noticed some of the kids for privacy, I assume, took refuge in the van or truck to read or study.
They have taken several full days out of the park to sight see and enjoy Disney I guess. I never did see one obviously pouting. They all play & work well together and seem to really enjoy themselves.
For setting up camp and tearing down they all seem to have their assigned jobs and it goes smoothly. I imagine they would be considered modern Gypsies, just as the wife and I.
The stickers on the van rear windows seem to be a game following where they have been. They have been ‘All Over’ the USA. Yosemite, Yellowstone, The Alamo, San Francisco, Niagara, and many,many more.
I can see the pros and cons of this life style. What do you think?
Even I could park this 5th wheel but could not sleep 8 people.LOL
