A not so long time ago but it sure seems like years, I came to a realization that I will have to plan for my eventual retirement. After spending almost 30 years as an engineer working for an aerospace company, I’m so comfortable with my routine that I did not have a solid plan for what to do with my time in my retirement years. Yes, I could do volunteer works and I am planning to do so, but that will not be all I would do. Travelling? Yes, definitely. In the past, I’ve rented a number of Class A, C RVs and travelled extensively in the West. My young family, back then, had really enjoyed that mode of travel. Fast forward to today. Although I am still able to navigate the bulky RVs, I’d rather be having something which allow for more flexibility since I will be staying in some places more and driving less. What I have envisioned is something which is more akin to a Tiny Home having full amenities of a second home, yet nimble and compact as a small travel trailer. Leveraging my years of engineering experience, this is what I’ve come up with.
Here’s what I means by nimble and compact as a small travel trailer. Take a look at the other side of the RV.
The RV will have to double in size when parked. Hmm, this project will keep me busy for a long time. More details on the next post!
