Are you considering life on the road, but not sure if it is really for you? One option is to rent a camper van or RV for a few days or weeks so that you can experience living in a vehicle.
Renting a camper van or RV is not cheap, but it is still a lot cheaper than buying a rig that will not meet your needs. Trying before buying can be a smart investment, particularly if you are new to the nomadic lifestyle.
