Meet Mama V, the Urban Escapee

Let’s introduce you to Mama V, a strong and capable woman who made a bold decision to commit to this way of life. Tired of the chaos in the city, she left her metropolitan life behind and started living in an old mini-school bus. However, her ultimate goal was to build a sustainable cottage for herself in the peaceful woods.Mama V in her bus

A Growing Family in a Small Space

Mama V wasn’t alone in this venture. She had two dogs and several cats, and as her furry family expanded, her bus started feeling small and crowded. She knew she needed more room, but she was unsure about her options considering her financial situation.Mama V with her furry family

A Neighbor’s Generosity Changes Everything

Fortunately, a generous neighbor stepped in and made an incredible offer. He had an old abandoned camper sitting in his yard for years, and instead of discarding or selling it, he gave it to Mama V. She was overjoyed and deeply grateful for this kind gesture.Mama V standing by her new trailer

Bidding Farewell to the Bus

With excitement, Mama V declared, “She’s ugly, but she’s mine!” and decided it was time to sell her bus. However, after being abandoned for so long, the trailer needed some tender loving care to make it habitable again.

A Joint Venture to Resurrect the Trailer

The trailer required repairs and a thorough cleaning, but it was structurally sound and free from leaks. Mama V enlisted the help of her friends Jayme and Kevin. With Kevin’s expertise, the trailer was securely connected to his vehicle while Jayme worked her magic to give it a sparkling clean.Jayme cleaning the trailer

Moving in and Getting Stocked Up

While Jayme cleaned, Mama V and Kevin went to town to buy food and supplies. To Mama V’s delight, the trailer came equipped with a functional microwave, oven/stove, and a refrigerator. They stocked up on essentials, preparing Mama V for her new life.

A New Beginning and a Clear Slate

Jayme’s cleaning skills were truly impressive. She cleared out at least 1,000 dead wasps and left every surface sparkling. The exhausting day of labor came to an end as Jayme and Kevin bid farewell to Mama V, leaving her to settle into her new temporary home.Mama V in her clean trailer

A Cozy Environment and Upcoming Plans

Alone at last, Mama V took a moment to explore her new surroundings. The trailer offered ample space with two full propane tanks, a pull-out couch, a full kitchen, two twin beds, a bathroom with a shower and bathtub, and plenty of storage. There was even a panel to track utility usage.Inside the cozy trailer
