Are you a current healthcare traveler, or aspiring to be a healthcare traveler? Have you considered traveling in an RV? Are you in the market for one now?
If you’re located near Virginia/North Carolina and are looking to buy used, you’re in luck, because our fifth wheel travel trailer and diesel truck are for SALE!
Many travel healthcare professionals (therapists, nurses, technicians, and more) choose to travel in an RV for ease of moving between contracts, lower cost of living, and having their own space! Jared and I were among those travel therapists living the #RVLife. We traveled and lived in our fifth wheel camper for almost 3 years. We loved living in our RV. It was our first “home” together. We moved quickly from one contract to the next, moving city to city, state to state, often over just a weekend between jobs. We learned about “tiny living” and became more minimalistic. It tested our relationship in all the right ways between learning to navigate a tiny kitchen making dinner together, managing repairs, and making jokes about “going upstairs” to get some space!
Now that Jared and I have decided to transition into working only part time as traveling physical therapists, and are living an “alternative lifestyle” by traveling internationally several months per year, we have not been using our RV as much. We have decided to sell both our fifth wheel and our truck, rather than leave them in storage several months out of the year.
As we transition into a different phase in our lives, we hope that someone else can start their own travel journey with our beloved fifth wheel and truck!
